Flaky, tender and buttery, biscuits with a bit of country ham make a filling breakfast and a tasty appetizer. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Southern delicacy known as country ham, please let me educate you. Country ham is dry cured for several days, before being smoked and then aged for up to a year. While country ham is easy to come by and relatively inexpensive in most Southern supermarkets, several artisanal producers have taken the stuff I grew up on to the next level.
While my favorite way to eat country ham is with a little red-eye gray, this recipe doesn’t disappoint. The sweetness of the sweet potato biscuit and honey mustard paired with the salty country ham is a pleasure that’s worth the effort. For those of you that have read enough to know this is something you must make, please jump ahead to the recipe. For those souls aspiring to biscuit greatness, please read on.
