Ham and Sweet Potato Biscuits


Hey yall!!  Christmas is right around the corner!  It will be here before you know it!  That is why we are bringing you our Christmas Series, full of recipes you can use to make your Christmas holly jolly!

You know what I love about Christmas?  Christmas ham!!! I love it!!  We always have a big ham on Christmas Eve and then on Christmas Day we snack all day on all the leftovers from the Christmas Eve Feast.

Christmas is so special in my family, we all go to my grand parents on Christmas Eve in our dress clothes and have a nice fancy dinner with ham, turkey and all the fixins.  My grandpa gives the kids updates about Santa’s whereabouts while my grandma passes out slices of pie and coffee and we all take a minutes before heading home to rush of last minute wrapping.

Christmas day is also spent at my grandparents, they have an enormous tree that my grandma fills will glass ornaments and everyone gathers round while my grandpa passes out the gifts.  Sometimes we come up from the pile of balled up wrapping paper, curling ribbon and bows to have a bite or two.  That is where that leftover ham comes in, except this time it’s on these simple but delicious Sweet Potato Biscuits.

Ham Biscuits

The combination of the salty ham with the sweet biscuits is just pure magic!

The biscuits take no time to prepare  and are fabulous on their own just slathered in butter.

Sweet Potato Biscuits

But they are perfection stuffed with Christmas ham.

Ham & Sweet Potato Biscuits

Ham & Sweet Potato Biscuits


  • Leftover ham
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 4 cups Bisquick
  • 1 stick butter or margarine at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Bake or microwave the potatoes until tender.
  2. Let cool.
  3. In a mixer add the sweet potatoes, butter, sugar and salt. Mix until blended.
  4. Add in the Bisquick 1 cup at a time. You may need more or less depending on the size of your potatoes.
  5. You can roll the biscuits out and cut them, drop them like drop biscuits but I pinch off pieces of dough, roll them into balls and then flatten them into a biscuit shape, this works best for me.
  6. Bake them on a greased cookie sheet at 350 for 10-13 minutes.
