I enjoy entertaining friends at luncheons. They always compliment me on these special little ham sandwiches made on cheesy homemade biscuits. Usually, I use Smithfield ham, but if salty ham is not your preference, any thin-sliced ham works well. —Betsy Hedeman, Timonium, Maryland

"The idea of an egg in a biscuit was almost sacriledge to this Southern boy, but I'm glad I overcame that feeling. These biscuits are tender and moist. They hold up great for several hours. Perfect for make ahead parties."

"This is a great tasting biscuit. I found using parchment paper lining on a cookie sheet was the only way to keep them from sticking. They just lift up effortlessly!

Look for it in the grocery section with the aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc."
