Ham & Gorgonzola Cheese Stuffed Buns

These stuffed buns are so much better than those you can pick up in the frozen food section.  Why?  They're fresh baked and you get to fill them yourself with as much meat as you can pinch into that bun.

Perfect as a lunch or dinner main dish...okay, you might need 2 per person for dinner.  OR, if you have a get together planned, turn these little beauties into 2-bite appetizers!

Ham & Gorgonzola Cheese Stuffed Buns

Preheat Oven:  375° F
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 12-15 minutes
Level: Easy

8 Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits
Black Forest Ham, thin sliced (lunch meat is fine)
1 Tbsp. Gorgonzola Cheese
1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard, per biscuit (optional)
2 Tbsp. Butter, melted

Take one biscuit and flatten it by pressing with the palm of your hand or fingertips.
Place the Gorgonzola cheese in the center of the biscuit, leaving a 1-inch border around the biscuit edges clean.
Place dijon mustard on top of the cheese. (this step optional)
Roughly chop ham and place on top of cheese.
Bring up the edges of the biscuit, gather and pinch together sealing the fillings inside.

Place on a lined baking sheet (SILPAT, foil or parchment paper) allowing 1-inch minimum in between each biscuit.

Brush melted butter over the top of each biscuit. Lightly season with salt. (salt optional)

Bake for 12-15 minutes until tops are golden brown. (15 minutes needed if using SILPAT lining)

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: Cut biscuits in half before assembling and form into a disk to create smaller biscuits for appetizers or kid-sized bites.
