Old Dominion Ham Biscuits

22 Jun

Old Dominion Ham Biscuits have maintained an extraordinary importance on the Southern table simply because they taste great and they're easy to make.

Old Dominion Ham Biscuits:  Ask any savvy host in the South what the most popular special occasion menu item is and you’ll likely get one answer – the Ham Biscuit. Take notice and you’ll find them everywhere. They’ll show up at tailgating and football parties, on the holiday cocktail circuit, with breakfast, on the brunch buffet, for New Year’s Eve and again on New Year’s Day.

Old Dominion Ham Biscuits have maintained an extraordinary importance on the Southern table simply because they taste great and they’re easy to make. No matter what the occasion, casual or elegant, they fit right in. There are rules for making truly exceptional Old Dominion Biscuits.  This recipe comes from Virginia (that’s why they are called Old Dominion), and they are a little more sophisticated than the traditional Ham Biscuit.

The flavored butter spread, with poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard and grated onions, adds just the right amount of flavor to make these Old Dominion Ham Biscuits stand out above all the rest.  Even my husband who grew up on the traditional Biscuit, thinks these are amazing.  I like to use King Hawaiian, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls when making these Ham Biscuits.  The sweet rolls add in a new dimension to the Old Dominion Biscuits, and they are the perfect size for munching.

    Brooke I’m headed back to Roanoke this weekend from down here in Bluffton, SC for my family reunion, so these will be a perfect item to take to the picnic up on the Peaks of Otter. Thanks for the perfect recipe at just the right time. I went to school with Willa, so I’m thrilled she shared your webpage with all of us!!
