Broccoli and Ham Biscuits

Take your grandma's biscuits for a fresh new spin with this tasty alternative.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 cup cold, unsalted butter

  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1 cup cooked broccoli florets, mashed

  • 1/3 cup cooked ham, chopped

  • 1 egg, beaten for brushing (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400F.

  • Combine flours, baking powder, salt, soda and sugar in a bowl. Coarsely grate in cold butter and toss with dry ingredients until well combined.

  • Work in mashed broccoli florets with your fingers, then add ham and buttermilk and work until all dry ingredients have been absorbed. (Note: It’s good if biscuit dough seems just a little bit wet. If yours isn’t, add a touch more buttermilk.)

  • Form dough into a ball and pat into a circle about 1 in. thick. Cut into 8 wedges and place 1 in. apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with beaten egg, if desired. Bake for 20 min, or until biscuits are lightly golden and cooked through.
