TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min.
MAKES: 5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits, separated into 10 biscuits
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks, separated into 12 breadsticks
  • 1 cup chopped fully cooked ham
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 5 slices process American cheese
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 1 tablespoon diced pimientos
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 511 calories, 18 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 83 mg cholesterol, 1,751 mg sodium, 66 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 20 g protein.

Directions

  1. On two greased baking sheets, pat five biscuits into 3-1/2-in. circles. Cut one breadstick in half lengthwise, then in half widthwise, creating four strips. Repeat nine times (save remaining breadsticks for another use). Position eight strips of dough around each biscuit to resemble spider legs; twist and press lightly onto baking sheet. Tuck a 1/2-in. foil ball under each dough strip so it stands up in the center.
  2. Combine the ham, onion, butter and mustard; spoon 3 tablespoons onto each biscuit circle. Fold cheese slices into quarters and place over ham mixture. Pat remaining biscuits into 4-in. circles; place over filling. Pinch edges to seal.
  3. In a small bowl, beat egg yolk and water. Brush over tops of biscuits and breadsticks. On each spider, position two olive slices for eyes; place pimientos in center of olives. Sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until browned. Yield: 5 sandwiches.

MY REVIEW

"This was good, but I had some trouble with them sticking to the pan. The legs were especially hard to get off unbroken."

"Cute and fun to make with the kids! They LOVED it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 5, 2011

"Made this with my two kids ages 3 and 5. They were able to help with patting out the biscuts and attaching the legs. I imagine prep would be faster if didn't have them helping, but then those memories wouldn" have been either.

I was skeptical if this dishes would be appealing to husband but it had a surprisingly wonderful flavor like a stuffed pastry at a holiday party.
I couldn't find breadsticks after searching two prominent grocery stores. Not sure if they aren't made anymore, so used crescent rolls instead.
My husband wants me to make these stuffed bacon and eggs, which will probably be great too.
Highly recommend!"
