So I picked up this Better Homes and Garden
Holiday Recipes Magazine
the other day..
Inside the magazine was this picture and recipe for
Double Cheddar Biscuit Sandwiches.
Looks yummy, yes?
Lets take a closer look at THEIR picture of this biscuit in the magazine.
this was mine.
Cuz the recipe has nothing RED in the ingredients...
I swear I followed the directions perfectly!!!
Maybe I went into it with a bad attitude though.
Pure deeeeeliciousness is what this ham was.
Here's the recipe for the Cajun-spiced ham.
Here's the fixins for this super tasty Cajun-Spiced Ham.
salt, lemon peel,
put that big ol'
5-7 lb. fully cooked ham
on a rack in a roasting pan.
Cook for an hour and a half and remove from oven....LOOK!
Slice this cajuny-spiced meat up.
Look at the biscuit recipe though; where is ANYTHING red in it...anything?
These biscuits, even though there were thin, were complimentary with this ham. On their own, not a ton of taste, but with this ham....fantastic!
So these are the fixins for the Cheddar Biscuits....

Use your biscuit cutters and cut out biscuits.
Again, this was easy.
Spread them out on a prepared pan.
Add the thyme and spread some cream on the tops.
Bake 16-18 minutes until golden.
By the way, my biscuits never got golden either.
With some thyme on it.
You know, frankly, these biscuits were good,
not stunning, but good
and we did eat that DEEEELICIOUS AS ALL GET OUT HAM between the "biscuits" as sandwiches. I may have loaded mine up with mustard and drizzled with real maple syrup.
Let me tell you, it didn't matter that the biscuits weren't big and fluffy when I did that;
it was allll good!
Okay, sometime this week I'll share the drama-free wild rice recipe from the same magazine.
Fantastic and so easy to make!!!
