Flaky and light biscuits, smoky 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? 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. 

Ingredients

  • 6 small biscuits

  • 12 small slices thick-cut country ham

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 6 small squares Muenster cheese

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Prepare biscuit dough, and if desired, use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut 6 thick biscuits.

  3. Bake (usually about 15 minutes at high heat) and set aside to cool.

  4. Heat a medium-sized, cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Roughly tear the ham into bite-sized pieces and place in the heated cast-iron skillet.

  5. Allow the ham to fry in its own fat until the pieces begin to caramelize and brown. Remove from heat and set aside.

  6. In a small bowl, combine the honey and butter. Mix until smooth.

  7. 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—more or less depending on your own personal taste.

  8. 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.
