Missing biscuits and bread since you’ve gone keto?
There’s nothing better than a savory biscuit so I’ve been on a mission to create a hearty low-carb version. These keto ham and cheese biscuits have a healthy dosage of cheddar cheese and cubed ham, making them pure heaven for your mouth, and quite filling too!
You can have your biscuits and eat them too – keto style!
These keto biscuits are perfect to grab for a quick breakfast on the go or to serve as a savory side dish. They’re so delicious and will hit the spot when you’re craving comfort food. In fact, they’re easy to make and so good that I could literally just eat them for dinner alone.
Hip tips for making keto ham & cheese biscuits:
- These biscuits are loaded with cheesy goodness so make sure to line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. You can also use reusable silicone baking mats if you prefer in order to reduce waste.
- Want to make the perfect size biscuits every time? My secret to making keto biscuits quickly and easily is to use an ice cream scoop when placing the dough on the prepared baking sheet.
- After they finish in the oven, you can drizzle melted butter over the tops of the warm biscuits for even more flavor. I like to use a basting brush to easily spread the butter.
- Consider making a double batch so you’ll have some extras to freeze and pop in the microwave for a quick and easy breakfast on busy weekdays! So yum.

Keto comfort food heaven!
I’ve gotta tell ya, I had to end up making a second batch of these keto ham and cheese biscuits since my family kept reaching for them as soon as I pulled them out of the oven… they’re that good!
The savory ham and rich cheddar in these biscuits make them irresistible.
My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
“These keto biscuits are oh so delicious! I really enjoyed this recipe and they’re so easy to make. My kids liked them as much as I did. Using the cheese as a base really made them flavorful and the mozzarella helps to bind them together. The tip to use the ice cream scoop to scoop out the dough is brilliant, it made them the perfect size and the process so simple too!”

Can the Italian seasoning be substituted for anything?
You can use 1/2 oregano and 1/2 parsley. If you are looking to avoid it all together another good sub would be rosemary.
can you eliminate the ham
Yes! I believe these would still be yummy without the ham!
How many ounces is a serving?
I don’t know how many ounces, but the recipe makes 10 biscuits. One biscuit is one serving.
Do these freeze well?
Yes! They sure do! Just pop them in the microwave for a quick and easy breakfast.
Can these biscuits be left at room temperature for a couple of days or do they need to be refrigerated? Look yummy!
Hi Mary! You can freeze or refrigerate them and then just pop them in the microwave when you’re ready to eat them!
So easy to make!! Thanks for this recipe!! Made these lovies just now!
