Now this is a ham sandwich worth taking a long walk for. There are only three ingredients, but the key is in the technique. First, you brown the ham in a skillet, and then you melt the Tillamook Smoked Medium Cheddar on top of it before placing both atop a sliced biscuit.

“The country ham really sets this recipe apart from another Ham and Cheese Biscuit you may have. Country Ham is a heavily brined piece of pork from Johnson County, NC. Sliced thinly, it is often referred to as ‘Southern Prosciutto’.” – Walt Alexander of Pine State Biscuits

Let's Make This!

  • Step 1

    For each biscuit sandwich, lay slices of country ham in a hot skillet, searing until it curls.

  • Step 2

    Flip over slices of ham and lay 2 slices of Tillamook Smoked Medium Cheddar Cheese over browning ham to melt in skillet (if the cheese melts out and directly onto the skillet, that’s okay! The cooked cheese will add a nice sweet flavor to the sandwich).

  • Step 3

    Slice a biscuit in half. Place ham and cheddar between the sliced biscuit and you’re done. Enjoy!
