  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix canned ham, dried onion, 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds, and margarine together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  3. Separate the biscuits; press 5 biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet so each biscuit is flattened and about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
  4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of ham mixture into the center each flattened biscuit.
  5. Fold Swiss cheese slices to break into quarters and place 4 quarters atop the ham.
  6. Spoon the remaining ham mixture over the Swiss cheese pieces.
  7. On a floured work surface, lightly press remaining 5 biscuits into 4-inch circles.
  8. Lay a 4-inch biscuit circle onto of each topped biscuit and lightly stretch the top biscuit to cover the filling. Press the edges together lightly but do not seal tightly together.
  9. Sprinkle each filled biscuit with a pinch of poppy seeds for garnish.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven until biscuit tops are golden brown and the filling is hot, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Maridele - I'm excited to be the first to review and photograph your yummy biscuits. I had leftover ham that I finely chopped in my food processer - it worked great. I loved the texture of the flattened biscuit in this little sandwich. They came out of the oven nicely browned and I let sit for about 5 minutes to let the inside ingredients set up a bit. I served this with fried potatoes and fresh strawberries and it made for a great meal. I think it will be fun to try this with other meats. We think leftover roast beef would be great with the swiss cheese. Thanks for much for sharing your recipe!

Yum! I used Havarti instead of Swiss and a used muffin pan; it turned out like a little pot pie. The butter seemed a little weird but tasted really good! I think next time I will use cream cheese instead of butter and cheese, then add chopped dill pickles like a ham rollup! I also think using jalapeño and cream cheese would make an awesome jalapeño popper! Thanks for sharing a fun new staple recipe :)


Just made these and yummy. Although I used left over roast beef, fried a bit in some garlic onions and green peppers, added some swiss cheese. I also topped it with garlic butter, basil and parm cheese. It was fantastic. Will be making these again soon. Thanks for this.
