GF Sunday Morning Ham & Egg Wake-Up Biscuits

As I started writing this post, I asked my husband for a catchy name for this morning's breakfast and his title is above.        It's a big title for a little sandwich, but we had a hard time capturing all the goodness it contains!  This recipe makes ten biscuits so you can either make it for a brunch crowd or wrap the leftover sandwiches in foil and stash them in the refridge.  Then on a rushed weekday, morning, you can pop them in a 350*F oven for 7-10 minutes for a hearty hand held breakfast to get the day started off right!

GF Sunday Morning Ham & Egg Wake-Up Biscuits:

Serves 10


2 1/4 cup gf multipurpose flour
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp honey
5 slices sm ham steak
10 eggs
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. 

Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until well combined.
Combine biscuit mix and buttermilk in a mixing bowl until the mix is completely moistened.

Take a piece of plastic wrap and dust a little flour on it. Lay your biscuit dough on it and cover it with another piece of plastic wrap. (You might need a little more flour). 

Gently roll out the dough to about a 3/4 inch or so. Use a floured biscuit cutter or rim of a juice glass to cut out your biscuits. You will get 20 biscuits.  Slide a metal spatula underneath the dough and place 
cut biscuits onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, brush tops of biscuits with honey that you heated for 20 seconds in the microwave.  Continue baking for another 3-5 minutes. Remove them from the oven & leave heat on for final step in the recipe.

While the biscuits are baking, heat 5 slices of ham over med-high heat for 6-7 minutes, turning once while cooking.  Set ham aside & fry the eggs in the same skillet.  

To build your sandwiches, turn 10 biscuits honey side down on the baking sheet.  Cut each ham slice into quarters and lay 2 quarter pieces on each upside down biscuit.  Next lay an egg on each biscuit.  Lastly, put a pinch of cheese and place another biscuit on the top to finish them.  Slide the biscuits into the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.  Enjoy!
