Cheesy Ham & Broccoli Pies

Danielle Reeves here to share a delicious and easy recipe with you!

Having four young kids, I’m one busy mama. As much as I love cooking, there’s often just not enough hours in the day to spend forever working on dinner. That’s why THIS mama loves quick-yet-tasty meals that are also a huge hit with the kiddos. These Cheesy Ham & Broccoli Pies are just that!

I know some people don’t like to use pre-made, refrigerated dough, and I completely respect that. I, for one, do use it though, especially when it can save me enough time to avoid doing fast food or another night of mac-and-cheese. If you’re one who doesn’t like to use it, for this recipe just make some normal dough, such as  pizza dough, and use that for the outside crusts. That’s another great thing about these Cheesy Ham & Broccoli Pies…flexibility!

Ingredients

  • 3 cans Refrigerated biscuits  (such as Pillsbury, or the generic)
  • 8 oz. Diced, cooked ham bits
  • 12 oz. Broccoli dices, frozen (such as the steamables)
  • 1-2 cups Shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F. Spray or line a 12-cup muffin tin.
  2. Take one of the biscuit dough pieces, and spread it along the inside of the muffin cup. Cover all the bottom and up the sides of the muffin tin. Continue with the other 11 spots in the muffin tin.
  3. In a bowl, mix the ham, broccoli and cheese together. I used 2 cups of cheese because we LOVE cheese, but decide the amount based on your family’s preferences. Scoop some of the mixture into each of the biscuit-lined cups. Fill all the way to the top, making a little peak over the top, as well.
  4. With the remaining biscuit dough pieces, cover the tops of each ‘pie’, carefully connecting the top to the dough edges to enclose the filling inside. Depending on the biscuit sizes, and how full each ‘pie’ is, you may need to use more than one biscuit piece, sometimes less. Just tear the biscuit apart if you need to.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until dough is lightly browned and flaky. Allow to cool about 5 minutes, then remove from muffin tin. Enjoy warm, or even cooled as leftovers!
