Easy Ham & Cheese Biscuit Bites

I can not get enough of these Ham Puffs. They are CRAZY good!!! There are only 5 simple ingredients in these puffs, but they make a delicious treat. I ate WAY too many of these puffs. I just kept popping them in my mouth. They are surprisingly good and way too easy to eat. They reminded me of little ham biscuit bites.

How to Make Ham Puffs

There are only 5 ingredients in these puffs and they only take a few minutes to make. Mix together diced ham, flour, butter, Worcestershire sauce, and cheese. Form into balls and bake.

  • I like to make small half-inch balls. They are the perfect bite-size, in my opinion. If you want bigger puffs, make them bigger. It is up to you! Just check the cooking time. Bigger puffs might take a minute or two longer to bake.
  • I use King Arthur All-Purpose Flour.
  • One cup of flour weighs 4.25-ounces. To properly measure flour, give the flour a stir to loosen it up in the container. Use a spoon and lightly spoon the flour into your measuring cup. Use a flat straight edge (like the straight back of a knife) to level off the top of the flour in the measuring cup. Do NOT compact the flour in the measuring cup.
  • Make sure to mix the dough well to get all of the flour incorporated.
  • Can Ham Puffs be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the baked puffs for a quick snack later.

Ham & Cheese Bites for Breakfast or Parties

This recipe makes about three dozen puffs. Perfect for holiday parties, holiday snacking and tailgating. They only take about 5 or 10 minutes to whip together and they are ready to eat in 15 minutes. They taste great hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. I am making a batch of these for Christmas snacking. These little ham bites are a good alternative to our usual sausage balls!

  1. I made and they were wonderful using self rising flour. I will make this again doubling and freezing for a quick snack and addition to soup meals. Thank you so much

  2. So delicious and a nice change from sausage balls! I made 25 out of my batch and total cook time was 23 minutes. Thank you Stephanie!

  3. I made those yesterday evening (Christmas Eve). They were the BombDiggity!!! I didn't have my Worcestershire Sauce so I used a few dashes of Louisiana hot Sauce. I had to improvise and they were delicious. Thank You, Much love, Carla Oh yeah, the BBQ-Smothered Green Beans are in the oven now!

  4. Quick question. Are these really rolled into half inch balls? That seems really tiny. These sound delicious and I can't wait to try them. Thanks!
