What’s Cookin? Sunday Brunch: Ham & Biscuits

There is breakfast, and of course; breakfast for dinner. But on Sunday’s, there is breakfast for lunch, or what the ‘cool kids’ call “brunch”.

Wikipedia: A meal is not usually considered brunch if it is started before 10:30 am; such meals would still be considered breakfast. Typically brunch is had between 10:30 am and 2 pm, close to lunch time but still before. Brunch is usually eaten in the late morning.

Oh, and enjoy!


  • 20 ounces (4 cups) flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons dry milk
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled butter
  • 1 (12 ounce) can of sparkling lemon-lime soda (Sprite, 7up)
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1/2 – 1 pound of ham
  • mustard (optional)
  • pickles (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Mix flour, baking powder, dry milk and salt until well combined.
  • Cut butter into dry ingredients until it resembles a coarse meal. Add soda and sour cream and mix until a loose dough is formed.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface and gently knead until the dough comes together. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick square and cut into evenly sized pieces. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • When biscuits are cool enough to handle, split and stuff with ham, and if desired a smidge of mustard and a few pickles. Serve ham and biscuits with hot, sweet milky tea.
