I think one of my favorite things is to smell something that is baking in the oven. My Black Forest Ham & Cheddar Biscuits are one of those things. The smell of fresh baked biscuits in the morning is something pretty special, combine that with smoky ham and sharp cheddar and you will feel like you have died and gone to heaven!
I have been on a quest to master baking, something that until recently, scared me... like a lot. There are so many variables when baking. The quantities have to be precise, the weather can effect the ingredients and much more. In an effort to conquer my fear, I stared that fear right in the face and started baking. I've been making bread, cookies, rolls....biscuits, Everything. I have to say, it's been going rather well. Once I came to the realization that baking is just about ratios, then it all became very clear to me. In baking, it's important to understand what role each ingredient plays in a recipe. For example, baking powder has a job. Omitting it or changing the quantity, will have a certain effect on the finished product. I started learning and understanding what these roles were and it has opened many doors for me.
These biscuits are so tasty when served fresh, but I also like to keep them in the fridge for a quick breakfast for my husband or kids. Sometimes getting everyone up and out the door is slightly challenging in the mornings, I like have things like this that I can grab quick to give them with some fruit or yogurt before they run out the door. We also like making these when we have breakfast for dinner; served up with some honey butter...delish!
If you make this recipe, make sure you share a photo with me, I’d love to see all of your creations! #SaporitoKitchen
