Ham Biscuit Sandwiches


  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour, spooned and leveled, plus more for work surface
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus 2 teaspoons melted
  • 1 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • Sliced ham
  • Apricot Mustard (below), sliced extra-sharp Cheddar, and lettuce leaves for serving
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a bowl.  Cut in cold butter with pastry blender or fork until coarse crumbs form.

Step 2: Make the biscuits: Stir buttermilk into flour mixture until just combined.  Turn out dough onto a well-floured work surface and knead lightly 3 or 4 times.  Pat into 3/4-inch-thick rectangle.  Cut into 9 squares and transfer to a baking sheet, placing close together but not touching.  Brush with melted butter.  Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

Step 3: Halve the biscuits and top with ham.  Serve with Apricot Mustard, Cheddar, and lettuce.

Step 4: Make the apricot mustard: Whisk together apricot jam, whole-grain mustard, and Dijon mustard in a bowl.  Makes 2/3 cup.
