Prosciutto and Cheddar Breakfast Biscuits

This recipe is presented by Eggland’s Best.

Italy mingles with the Deep South for this two-stepping twist on the traditional breakfast sandwich. Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stovetop, and keep a close eye on it to prevent burning.

If deli ham is more available than prosciutto, no worries: These protein-packed biscuits will still wow ’em.

Tips for Eggs, Ham, and Pork


  1. 1Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. 2In a bowl, combine the biscuit mix, milk, melted butter, and chives; mix it just until moistened.
  3. 3Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Pat or roll to a 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter.
  4. 4Place the biscuits 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. 5Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and salt.
  6. 6Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and green onions; cook until the prosciutto begins to brown, stirring occasionally.
  7. 7Stir in the butter until melted.
  8. 8Add the egg mixture; cook and stir until the eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains.
  9. 9Stir in the cheese; remove from heat.
  10. 10Split the warm biscuits in half. Fill with the egg mixture.
