These easy ham and cheese biscuits are made from scratch but quick to make even on a weekday morning!

Hello, hello! It’s the first day the kids are back to school after winter break, and it is SO QUIET up in here! I had a spring in my step on my way home from dropping off the boys because I wanted to get in the kitchen to make you these biscuits. OK, and maybe I was more than a little excited to actually eat a few couple ham and cheese biscuits.

These easy ham and cheese biscuits are made with yogurt in your food processor.

I knew I wanted to make biscuits today, and this morning I found a big, unopened container of Greek yogurt in the refrigerator that expired two days ago. I’m sure that is just a guideline, so I decided to bake with it. (I think a yogurt cake might be in your near future too…) These biscuits turned out so moist and fluffy that I may never bake without yogurt again!

Make these easy ham and cheese biscuits even on busy weekdays!

Make Ham and Cheese Biscuits in a Hurry

I have always cut (more like pinched) butter into my biscuit flour with my fingers, but today I remembered that I have a food processor just for such a job. (That’s an affiliate link to the one I use.) I haven’t had it that long, so I kind of forget about it sometimes! Mixing up this biscuit dough in the food processor was about a 3-minute job start to finish, so I highly recommend that method if possible. You can also do it by hand of course, but expect to add a few minutes to the prep time. I’m sure you’ll think it’s worth it when you are sitting down to breakfast or running out the door with one of these very portable ham and cheese biscuits!

These easy ham and cheese yogurt biscuits are made from scratch but quick to make even on a weekday morning!

  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 20 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  2. Place flour, baking powder, salt, and butter into the bowl of a food processor. Hold pulse for 10-15 seconds until butter is completely incorporated. Flour will look like small crumbs. (If you don’t have a food processor, cut butter into flour with a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers.)
  3. Add 1/2 c. milk and yogurt. Run food processor on lowest setting (mine has a dough setting) until dough has come together, 10-20 seconds. (Work milk and yogurt into flour with a strong rubber spatula if making by hand.)
  4. Remove blade from dough, and stir in ham and cheese. If the dough is too stiff to stir, add 1-2 tbsp. more milk until it’s soft enough to work in the ham and cheese.
  5. Use a medium cookie scoop or heaping tablespoons to place balls of dough about two inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Press each ball of dough down slightly to keep the biscuits from baking up too round. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until tops are just starting to brown.

Notes

Your biscuits will be lighter in color if you use regular wheat flour. Mine appear tan because of the spelt flour.

If you would like to make a dozen larger biscuits, use a large disher and increase the baking time to 15-18 minutes.

I love baking with Greek yogurt, and these breakfast biscuits look perfect! I bet they’d make a great breakfast sandwich with some scrambled eggs (and more cheese!).

Thank you, Kristine! That’s a great idea. I might have to try it tomorrow! More cheese is always welcome :)

I almost always choose savory over sweet when it comes to biscuits and pastries. I’m sure you’ve baked up some amazing savory biscuits or scones, Connie. I need to go poke around and look for your recipes!

Thanks, Deb! Do you know I think about you all the time? Every time I get ready to cook and use the back burner to keep the hot pan out of reach of little hands, I think of you cooking on the front burner. Then I wonder if you cook on the back burner too now that you have a little granddaughter running around! Hope you are doing well :)

Love baking with greek yogurt and spelt, they make everything just that much better. I don’t think I’ve ever put ham in my biscuits but that sure is going to change! These look and sound delicious!

Thanks so much. I’m glad I’m not the only one who uses spelt flour! If you like ham, you should definitely give these a try, Sherri.

Quiet house, huh? Well good for you. That is a luxury. I love biscuits. It dawns on me—ding dong—lame—but go with it—-ha—-that I haven’t done this type of a treatment on them. Good idea! Smiles—–

I love how easy these sound! I would use leftover roasted ham (since we always seem to have some on hand; I blame my husband.)

Andi

Thanks, Kacey! I wish we had roasted ham more often. I only make it once a year or less, but I don’t know why because I love it!

Can this biscuits be put in the freezer and pulled out each morning? Not that they would last long in my house…

Andi

That should work fine, Amber! I put mine in the fridge since they have meat in them, and I think the freezer should work the same. They’ll just take longer to thaw or warm up. Hope you like them!
