  • Proscuitto ham or country ham
  • Fig jam
  • Sharp cheddar cheese sliced into small rectangles
  • Your favorite biscuits I used Smitten Kitchen cream biscuits
  • Butter or ghee optional


  • Cook biscuits according to recipe instructions.
  • Once the biscuits are cool enough to touch, slice in half and place cut side up on the same pan. Brush each half with a little butter or ghee (optional).
  • Make little mounds of the prosciutto (or other meat) and place thinly sliced cheese on top. Add this to the same pan and stick everything back into the oven. Check after a few minutes (3-5) to see if the cheese is melty enough.
  • Spatula the meat/cheese mound on the biscuit bottom, add fig jam to the top half and slam it together! Enjoy!


Here's the biscuit recipe I used! I made them one weekend and froze for the following week. https://smittenkitchen.com/2009/12/cream-biscuits/ THANKSSSSS Deb.
