  • Mix canned ham, dried onion, 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds, and margarine together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.

  • Separate the biscuits; press 5 biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet so each biscuit is flattened and about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of ham mixture into the center each flattened biscuit.

  • Fold Swiss cheese slices to break into quarters and place 4 quarters atop the ham.

  • Spoon the remaining ham mixture over the Swiss cheese pieces.

  • On a floured work surface, lightly press remaining 5 biscuits into 4-inch circles.

  • Lay a 4-inch biscuit circle onto of each topped biscuit and lightly stretch the top biscuit to cover the filling. Press the edges together lightly but do not seal tightly together.

  • Sprinkle each filled biscuit with a pinch of poppy seeds for garnish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until biscuit tops are golden brown and the filling is hot, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Maridele - I'm excited to be the first to review and photograph your yummy biscuits. I had leftover ham that I finely chopped in my food processer - it worked great. I loved the texture of the flattened biscuit in this little sandwich. They came out of the oven nicely browned and I let sit for about 5 minutes to let the inside ingredients set up a bit. I served this with fried potatoes and fresh strawberries and it made for a great meal. I think it will be fun to try this with other meats. We think leftover roast beef would be great with the swiss cheese. Thanks for much for sharing your recipe! Read More

No crazy about this. The canned ham was way too salty which pretty much ruined the whole thing. The concept is good though maybe with shaved deli ham instead. Read More

Yum! I used Havarti instead of Swiss and a used muffin pan; it turned out like a little pot pie. The butter seemed a little weird but tasted really good! I think next time I will use cream cheese instead of butter and cheese then add chopped dill pickles like a ham rollup! I also think using jalapeño and cream cheese would make an awesome jalapeño popper! Thanks for sharing a fun new staple recipe:) Read More

Super easy and different. Try with turkey or roast beef and different types of cheeses too. I did not use canned ham - used thick ham slices that I diced. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Just made these and yummy. Although I used left over roast beef fried a bit in some garlic onions and green peppers added some swiss cheese. I also topped it with garlic butter basil and parm cheese. It was fantastic. Will be making these again soon. Thanks for this. Read More

These were very good. I used sesame seeds for garnish instead of poppy seeds since I didn't have any (I didn't put any sesame seeds inside though the recipe calls for poppy seeds inside). I have to admit that I had never heard of canned ham which is weird because it was right there in plain sight when I went looking for it after finding this recipe...hmmmm. Anyway versatile recipe and I look forward to trying out different meat/cheese combos soon. Quick easy lunch for the kids this summer. Something different. Read More

I used leftover cooked ham chopped in my food processor and butter instead of margarine. These were so very good and my husband is still raving about them this morning. My only problem was I used Pillsbury 7.5 oz. canned biscuits and they were very small and hard to get any bigger than 3 inches when flattened so some of my seams came open while baking and cheese oozed out. I'll find larger biscuits next time I make these. I served them with a fruit salad with Poppy Seed Dressing I from this site a perfect match. Would make a great brunch menu. Read More

Oh these were DELICIOUS! I have nver used/eaten canned ham like that before so I was a little afraid lol but went ahead and made them anyway...soooo good! These were so buttery flavorful and yummy! I used butter instead of margarine and used a little more onion than called for. I really can't get over how good these are Maridele! I would make these again (w/ the canned ham) in a heartbeat! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

These were easy to make and also very good. My daughter loved it so much. The only thing missing were the poppy seeds which I forgot to pick up. It's so cute when I had cut them in quarters makes me want to throw a tea party lol. Read More
