Country Ham Biscuits

    This sofi award-winning biscuit is a Southern delicacy. They cure country ham in salt, which makes these tender biscuits extra salty. Serve them at your next cocktail party – one order serves 9-10 people.

The biscuit that started it all!!

Callie, my mom, created these chopped country ham biscuits for a very specific reason. Guests often experienced the ham falling out of the biscuit when they took a bite at her catered parties. No one wants to be dressed in cocktail attire with a piece of ham hanging out of their mouth! So Callie made them distinctively different by finely chopping the ham in each biscuit.

Since 2005, Callie's Hot Little Biscuit has continued to make our country ham biscuits the Callie way. We use finely chopped artisanal Virginia country ham and house-whipped Dijon mustard butter, tucked inside our signature sharp cheddar biscuit. These ham and cheese biscuits make for a perfect cocktail hour d'oeuvre that one can eat in a lady-like manner!

Why we make "Hot Little Biscuits":

My Grandmama always said, "It's not ladylike to eat a big biscuit." Over the years, I have developed a deep appreciation for the power of a small biscuit. Neither Grandmama nor I could have imagined that our family tradition of small biscuits would turn into something so big.

Our hot little biscuits are bite-sized, measuring about 2x2 inches. With the exception of our Gluten-Free Buttermilk and Sausage Biscuits which are "sandwich-size", measuring around 3x3 inches.
