Prosciutto & Cheddar Breakfast Biscuits

When my family visits, I love to make my nephew Robbie happy by making any breakfast with pork and cheese. I created this as a twist on the traditional breakfast sandwich. —Kelly Boe, Whiteland, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 2-1/3 cups biscuit/baking mix

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a bowl, combine biscuit mix, milk, melted butter and chives; mix just until moistened.
