Ingredients

  • 1 batch biscuit dough (see notes)
  • 6 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 6 oz light cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 4 oz jar diced pimentos, drained
  • 1/4 lb virginia or black forest ham

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Follow directions to roll out biscuits and then use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to make 16 biscuits. You will need to piece scrap dough back together to make them all.

  3. Place on a greased baking sheet and brush with buttermilk as directed. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. While the biscuits cook, add cheese, cream cheese, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder and salt to the bottom of a food processor. Pulse 3-4 times until cream cheese is incorporated in to the cheese. Do not overmix! You still want some pieces of cheese of whole.

  5. Add pimentos, pulse 1-2 times until combined, again, you want them to stay in tact. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  6. Once biscuits have cooled slightly, split in half. Spread pimento cheese on the bottom. Top with a piece of ham, then spread more cheese on the top biscuit. Sandwich together. You can eat them at room temperature, or pop them back on the baking sheet and in to a 350 degree oven for a few minutes until the cheese has melted.
