Ham & Green Onion Biscuits

I started with my grandmother’s biscuits and added a bit of my personality. When I make these with my kids, it feels like she’s with us. —Amy Chase, Vanderhoof, British Columbia

    Very good recipe! I'm so glad I tried it - a definite 'keeper' in my recipe file! So flavorful, great texture. I'll be making these again for sure, maybe a big basket of muffins with a pretty fruit bowl on the side! Made the recipe as is, no adjustments.

    VERY good recipe ! Heated the leftovers up for breakfast in the toaster oven, topped with a little butter, wow ! So good ! I used skim milk because that's what we have in our frig, was very good.

    Delicious. I diced up some gruyere cheese and added it as well. Yum.

    I made these for breakfast for my husband. He loved them, he said to make sure I cut out the recipe and use it often. They are very quick and easy to make. Crisp on the outside and tender and moist in the inside. I used skim milk and out of the two cups of flour did substitute out a half cup for whole wheat pastry flour. I will most certainly make again.
