  • 2 ¼ cups self rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • cup frozen unsalted butter grated
  • 1 ½ cup buttermilk (well shaken)
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped fully cooked country ham
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh chives plus additional for garnishing
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter to brush tops
  • sweet hot mustard or maple syrup for serving


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, use a whisk to sift together flour, garlic, mustard, onion powder and cayenne. Add grated butter, mixing until evenly distributed. To the bowl add buttermilk, mix well.
  • Once dough is formed, add cheese, ham and chives. Use a non stick spatula to gently mix through the dough until fully combined.
  • Drop by tablespoon onto pan, leaving 2 inches between. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until lightly golden. (Adjust bake time according to size)
  • Brush again with melted butter and serve with sweet hot mustard or maple syrup, if desired.


Make your own Self Rising Flour: To the same amount of all purpose flour, add 1 tablespoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon baking soda.
