Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp milk or cream
  • salt and black pepper
  • 3 cup self rising flour
  • 2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz smoked ham cubed
  • 12 thick slices colby-jack or cheddar cheese, cut in half
  • 3 Tbsp butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Brush the bottom and sides of a 12-inch cast iron skillet or similar with melted butter. Set aside.
  • Beat together 6 large eggs with 3 Tbsp milk or cream. Season with salt and black pepper to your taste. Soft scramble then set aside to cool while you prepare the biscuit dough.
  • Use a fork to combine the self-rising flour and cream until the flour is fully moistened. It may appear crumbly but should hold together when pressed between your fingers.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured non-stick surface. Knead a few times until the dough comes together.
  • Flour a rolling pin and roll to around 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 6-inch rounds. Re-roll scraps as needed to make 12 total.
  • Place 1/2 slice of cheese in the middle of the dough round, top with 2 Tbsp scrambled eggs, 1 Tbsp ham cubes and the other half slice cheese.
  • Pinch the dough around the filling. Place seam side down side by side in the skillet.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter them bake for 18 minutes at 375°F. Increase to 425°F and bake for another 5 minutes or until the tops are golden.
  • Serve immediately, brushed with additional butter, if desired
