Welcome To Football Friday and The Game Day Recipe. It’s that time of year again! Football Season has Officially Arrived. Get out those Game Day Recipes and Cheer on your favorite team. Your football fans are going to love these mini biscuits. If you aren’t a fan of ham, no problem. Simply substitute the ham with your favorite sliced luncheon meat. Serve mini biscuits with ham and cheese with your favorite mustard.

Biscuit Cutter

To make mini biscuits, use a mini biscuit cutter or your favorite mini cookie cutters to cut out decorative shapes. I like to cut out different shapes for the cheese, and then another shape for the ham. Cut biscuits in half and stack decorative slices of ham and cheese on the bottom biscuit and place the other half back on top to form a mini biscuit. You can use decorative toothpicks to hold the mini biscuits together, if you like.

For this recipe we used Boar’s Head Ham. Boars Head Brand was established in the New York City area in 1905. Dissatisfied with the quality of hams available, founder Frank Brunckhorst set out to craft products of uncompromising standards by using only the finest ingredients.
