These unique little biscuits are perfect for your party or family gathering. These biscuits are made even more unique by incorporating a multitude of fillings. Consider everything from flavored cheeses to sliced breast of chicken and even barbecued pulled pork.

Ingredients:

¼ cup cooked, mashed sweet potatoes

1 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

¼ cup chopped chives

½ pound thinly sliced country ham

2¾ cups flour

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1½ tsps salt

1½ tsps black pepper

¼ cup cold butter, cut into pieces

? cup buttermilk

2 large eggs

2 tbsps butter, melted

Method:

Preheat oven to 375°F. In the bowl of a food processor, add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and black pepper then pulse 1–2 times to combine ingredients. Add cold butter pieces and pulse until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Place mixture into a large mixing bowl and using a wooden spoon, stir in cheese and chives until well incorporated. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together mashed sweet potatoes, buttermilk and eggs. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat dough into a 1-inch thick circle. Using a well-floured 1½-inch round cutter, cut out biscuits. Gather scraps, pat out and cut out more biscuits until all dough is used. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter. Arrange biscuits on prepared baking sheet with sides touching. Bake on center rack in oven 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. In a large nonstick skillet, cook ham over medium-high heat approximately 6 minutes, turning once. To serve, split biscuits and fill with warm ham.

    After Further Review: Sloppy wins still count for Saints

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
