Flaky and light biscuits, smokey fried ham, buttery muenster cheese and sweet honey butter make up the recipe for these miniature Southern honey-butter ham and cheese biscuit sandwiches. Perfect for picnics, parties, and/or feeding a hungry group of people, each bite is packed with Southern goodness.
Got some cookie cutters nearby? Try stamping out a shape in the dough (like these heart shaped ones) to add an extra layer of fun. I recommend serving them with one dozen mimosas and a few of your favorite hot sauces.
Want to make them in advance? You can, but they're best made fresh day-of, but you can make them at least 24 hours in advance as long as they're kept cool in the refrigerator.
- 6 small biscuits
- 12 small slices ham (thick cut country ham)
- 6 small squares of Muenster cheese
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp honey
Gather the ingredients.
Prepare biscuit dough accordingly and if desired, use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut 3 thick biscuits.
Bake (usually about 15 minutes at high heat) and set aside to cool.
Heat a medium sized cast iron skillet over medium heat. Roughly tear the ham into bite sized pieces and place in a heated cast iron skillet.
Allow the ham to fry in its own fat until the pieces begin to caramelize and brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
Once the biscuits have cooled, gently take a knife and slice them in half to fill them. On each piece, gently slather on some honey butter (mix the 2 tbsp of butter with 1 tbsp of honey) - more or less depending on your own personal taste.
Next, add a few pieces of ham and a slice of cheese to each biscuit sandwich. Once they're built, take toothpick and gently push it through the middle of each sandwich - this will help keep them together while transporting.
