Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • CREAM SAUCE:
  • 1 cup cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-3/4 cups milk
  • 3 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times.
  2. Pat or roll out to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute ham and onion in butter for 3-4 minutes or until onion is crisp-tender. Stir in the bouillon, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Combine flour and milk until smooth; gradually stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Gently stir in eggs and parsley.
  4. Split warm biscuits in half horizontally; top with ham mixture.
