Ham and Cheese Biscuits
This month I am doing a series on after school snacks. There are two main types of after school snacks in my home. Snacks in my home fall into one of two categories. Light snacks to get you to dinner and “mini meals” to fuel you through a practice or activity.
These Ham and Cheese Biscuits are in the “mini meal” category. Pair them with some baby carrots or other sliced veggies for a mini meal with protein, fat, and carbs to get them to dinnertime.
These biscuits are super fast to put together and only take less than 15 minutes to bake. They can be made ahead and frozen and are best served warm.
