Looking for a tasty and easy way to use holiday leftovers? These Ham Biscuits with Cranberry Mustard are a great choice!
Shockingly, football is not my favorite part about the holidays. Sure, there are some great games in there, and I do enjoy watching them. But they don’t top the list. That spot is reserved for leftovers. Yes, leftovers. One of my favorite things about the holidays is leftovers. Curling up on the couch with a plate of comfort food (and then turning on that football game or perhaps a holiday movie) is my definition of holiday fun!
Every good baker needs a go-to biscuit recipe. A good buttery, flaky biscuit that not only serves as a side dish, but also as a vessel for sandwiches the next day. That’s where these Hatfield Ham Biscuits with Cranberry Mustard come in. I made a batch of my favorite biscuits for dinner, and the leftover biscuits (along with the leftover ham and the leftover cranberry sauce) all came together in sandwich form the next day. Holy moly are these ham biscuits delicious!
I was in our local Price Chopper supermarket the other day, and I noticed that Hatfield® Original Hardwood Smoked Dinner Hams were on sale. Score! At 3 pounds, these boneless hams are the perfect size for dinner with leftovers for lunch the next day. Hatfield is an American-made business that started in Pennsylvania over 120 years ago. Today, the company is still family-owned. (Pretty cool, huh?) Plus, their pork is simply delicious, so that’s a win-win-win in my book! I put 2 of those Hatfield hams in my cart and went about my merry way. (I picked up the Hardwood Smoked variety, but Hatfield’s boneless hams also come in Honey and Black Forest, too.)
Like all of Hatfield’s Hams, the Hardwood Smoked Dinner Hams are fully-cooked. All I had to do once I got home was heat it up. Now I love spending time in the kitchen, but I often find that time is at a premium during the holidays. There are parties that need attending, football games that need watching and couches that need warming up. Easy dinners always earn a few extra bonus points in my book, but they earn even more during the holidays!
One of my favorite things about the Hatfield Original Hardwood Smoked Dinner Ham is that it’s not sliced. That way, I can slice it up at home, or I can cut it into cubes for use in salads, omelettes, etc. I’m all about the versatility here!
Ham Biscuits with Cranberry Mustard
As I mentioned above, these ham biscuits are perfect for holiday leftovers! I don’t know about you, but we always seem to have leftover cranberry sauce in the fridge. Well that cranberry sauce can be turned into an easy condiment by mixing it with Dijon mustard, dried onions and a pinch of garlic powder. The combination is a little bit tart, a little bit sweet and a lotta bit tasty. It’s a fun, holiday-inspired spread that goes quite well on ham biscuits.
Growing up, my parents always hosted a cocktail party for friends and neighbors at the beginning of December. My sister and I were allowed to rent movies (1 each!), and then we stayed upstairs watching those movies until the party began to wind down. Once there were only a few guests left, we’d sneak down in our footie-pajamas to say hello. There were often mini ham biscuits left in the kitchen, and I totally remember snacking on leftover ham biscuits after those parties. Good times!
These Ham Biscuits with Cranberry Mustard are a tasty and easy way to use leftovers during the upcoming holiday season! Heck, these ham biscuits are so good that I might make another batch solely for the purpose of leftovers. I hope you enjoy these ham biscuits as much as we did, and Happy Holidays!
Bonus: For a limited time this Holiday season, enjoy $2 off any (1) Hatfield Ham!
