  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 1 cup cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-3/4 cups milk
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times.

Pat or roll out to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, sauté ham and onion in butter for 3-4 minutes. Add the Worcestershire. Combine flour and milk until smooth; gradually stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Gently stir in eggs and parsley. Split warm biscuits in half horizontally; top with white mixture.
