Eggs, cheese, and ham in a flakey pastry cup. Perfect for brunches or "take-out" treats.
"True favorite for my family this holiday season. Threw the extra into a pie crust for a quiche. They also refrigerate/toast well for a few days after.
The second time i made these, I used 4 oz sour cream and 4 oz heavy whipping cream and doubled the eggs instead of cream cheese bc that's what I had in the fridge. I couldn't tell the difference as it relates to taste.
Both times I've made it, I also substituted Parmesan cheese - about an 8th-quarter cup - for the other cheese and sprinkled the cheddar on top w salt and pepper."- Jhelenshaw

Top-ranked recipe named "Ham Quiche Biscuit Cups"
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease muffin cups.
Beat cream cheese, milk, and eggs until smooth. Stir in cheese and onions.
Separate dough into biscuits. Optionally you can then split each biscuit in half again. (this is why flakey dough works best). Place one biscuit in each cup pressing down to form a "biscuit cup". You should be able to form about a 1/4 inch "rim".
Place 1/2 of ham at the bottom of the biscuit cups. Spoon about 2 Tbs. of egg mixture into each cup. Top with remaining ham and bake until filling is set and edges of biscuits are golden brown. About 25 minutes should do it.
Remove from pan and serve immediately. They also travel well if you're going to a pot luck or other event.
Makes 16 biscuit cups
These are very popular with the potluck breakfast crowd at the office. Of course they like anything they didn't have to cook.

Ange325 1 year agoSoooo yummy! I used the jr biscuits so no need of splitting and I used turkey and cheddar cheese. The would be good with anything meat and cheese I would love to try sausage next.
ddudgeon73 1 year agoReally good!! I turned the oven down a bit from the suggested temperature because I didn't want to burn the biscuit crusts. And I added a little more ham than it called for, but VERY tasty!!

galactic_cannibal 1 year agoI took these to my sister in laws baby shower brunch and everyone loved them! They were pretty simple to make. My only reccomendation would be to buy the grands JR. biscuits. I used 2 cans of jrs and it was cheaper and no splitting. Thanks!
Czwhiz 1 year agoGreat recipe. Only issues I had were that ... 1.) 25 minutes was too long in my oven.You might want to check them around 17 minutes. (I used a Wilton non-stick pan) 2.) You need to finely grate your cheese. I wasn't thinking and did it like I usually do and the pieces were too long and big. 3.) I only have 12 muffin cups in my big muffin pan so I made mini muffin size ones to use up the last of the stuff. I just used scissors to quartered the biscuits and rolled them out real fast with a mini roller. The small ones seemed quicker to make to me. I cooked them for 12 minutes and they were much lighter and fluffier. (used a Wilton non-stick here, too) I don't know how far the filling would stretch if you did them all this way, though. I'll keep you posted. Think I'm gonna try a Huevos Rancheros or bacon spinach version next time!
EllyCastle 1 year agoDelicious! Next time will use sheets of puff pastry cut into circles for a lighter pastry. Great base recipe. Thanks:)
promfh 1 year agoI've found that a package of 8 flakey biscuits divides into 16 muffin tin slots (1/2 a biscuit per cup) so I'm updating the recipe to show 16 units total yield.
DoubleChin 1 year agoTook out of oven 5 minutes early and biscuits were too crispy. Next time I would split the biscuits in half to make more. I had a lot of cheese mixture left over, I would cut the cream cheese to 4 oz. I'm going to try it again.
