These easy to make Hard Boiled Egg Stuffed Biscuits with Ham & Cheese can be made in a matter of minutes with the help of a few supermarket convenience foods. They’re the perfect a grab-and-go breakfast which will please the entire family!
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. This recipe for Hard Boiled Egg Stuffed Biscuits is one I came up with a few years ago in the hopes it would gain me entry in the iconic Pillsbury Bake-Off. Sadly, I never heard anything back regarding my submission, but I never forgot about this recipe and promised myself that one day I’d add it to the blog. Today is that day!
The ingredient list for making Hard Boiled Stuffed Biscuits:
You’ll need hard-boiled eggs. Normally I’d hard-boil my own eggs, but for the purposes of this recipe being easy and quick I used the pre-boiled, pre-peeled eggs which you can buy in the dairy section of the grocery store. You’ll also need thinly sliced ham, shredded cheese, canned flaky biscuits, butter, and poppy seeds (optional).
This is the first time I’d ever purchased the pre-boiled, pre-peeled eggs, and now that I have, I’m thinking they’re a HUGE game changer. Especially for someone like me who has always had trouble peeling the eggs cleanly after they’ve been cooked, and I’m not afraid to admit it!
If you haven’t tried them before, I’m here to tell you they’re an awesome product with no ugly grey/green ring around the yolk that happens if you cook the eggs a fraction of a moment too long. Been there, done that!
- 8 hard-boiled eggs peeled
- 1 tube flaky biscuits separated into 8 biscuits
- 8 slices ham thinly sliced
- ½ cup shredded cheese blend or your favorite flavor
- salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Open the tube of biscuits and flatten each one to form an approximate 5" circle
Sprinkle each flattened biscuit with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Top each flattened biscuit with a slice of ham and approximately 2 teaspoons of the cheese.
Add a hard-boiled egg to each biscuit and bring up the sides of each biscuit to encase the egg, making sure to pinch the edges closed.
Prepare a muffin tin by spraying with non-stick spray.
Place each egg stuffed biscuit, seam side down, in the muffin tin.
*NOTE - to fill the tin, you'll need additional ingredients. Please plan accordingly.
Brush the tops of each egg biscuit with the melted butter and sprinkle with poppy seeds, if desired.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the biscuits are puffed and golden.
Cool slightly and then serve hot or warm.
To reheat, wrap each in a paper towel and heat in the microwave on medium power until warm.
OR, reheat in a 326-degree oven for 10 minutes, or until warm.
Tools and equipment:
Muffin tin, pastry brush, non-stick spray
