Cheesy Ham & Egg Sandwiches

I turned classic breakfast sandwiches into something heartier you could have for dinner, too. We pile toppings like salsa, avocado—even mayo and ketchup—onto my homemade biscuits. —Fay Moreland, Wichita Falls, Texas

Ingredients

  • 4 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup finely chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper, divided
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • EGGS:
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: salsa, sliced tomato, red onion and avocado

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix, cheese, ham and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add milk; mix just until moistened.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Pat or roll dough to 1-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with remaining pepper. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, for eggs, in a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, pepper and salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Stir in cheese; remove from heat.
  • Split warm biscuits in half. Layer bottoms with egg mixture and toppings as desired. Replace tops.

    My husband cooks breakfast for 4 men on Saturday mornings and he fell in love with this but he did add some hot sauce - they all like things so hot you can't taste it but I liked it a lot without the extra sauce.
