Looking for a quick lunch or dinner recipe? These stuffed biscuits are filled with ham and cheese and go from oven to table in less than 15 minutes.
How can you go wrong with a three-ingredient recipe that features flaky biscuits baked with a filling of melted cheese and Black forest ham? The answer is, that you can’t.
This simple stuffed biscuit recipe is the perfect quick lunch or dinner that kids absolutely love! They also make a great side with scrambled or over-easy eggs for breakfast.
These ham and cheese-filled biscuits have –
- Canned jumbo flaky layered buttermilk biscuits. The flaky biscuits are easy to pull apart and they seal back together once stuffed with the ham and cheese.
- Sliced black forest ham. Thinly sliced ham works best.
- Cheese slices. I prefer Kraft American Singles.

How to make stuffed biscuits step-by-step
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and open the can of biscuits.
Make sure that you use the ‘flaky layered’ canned biscuits so that you can easily separate the top and the bottom. This will not work as well if you choose the regular refrigerated biscuit dough.
Slip the dough into a top section and a bottom section.
Place a fourth of the piece of cheese on the bottom and one on the top.
Add about 1 piece of ham that has been torn in half to the center of the cheese on the bottom part of the biscuit.
Now take the 2nd half of the biscuit and put it on top.
Pinch the sides to close it up completely.
Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and continue with the rest of them.
Slide them into the oven and bake for 14 minutes.
Can you use different ingredients inside these baked sandwiches?
Sure! While I like the classic ham and cheese, there are many flavor combos you can make.
-Turkey and White Cheddar
-Roasted chicken and Pepper Jack
-Roast Beef and Sharp Cheddar
What about adding a dipping sauce?
I occasionally serve these with a mixture of whole-grain mustard and mayonnaise at a 1:1 ratio.
Add any leftovers to a covered container and refrigerate. Eat within 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or air fryer.
