Ham Cobbler

Teresa Ambra

I have to admit I enjoy the comfort of potpies and Shepherd’s pies. Ham Cobbler is pretty close to the first. I have a delicious mix of ham and vegetables in a very thick sauce. That mixture is topped with Cheddar Bay Biscuits which are spread with a garlic butter topping after the casserole is baked. Yum, yum, yum!

I cooked up a large spiral-cut ham for Easter for our family. Those hams produce about 25-30 servings each, so I had a LOT left over. I decided to make up a Ham Cobbler using a combination of a few different recipes I had collected over the years. I used only two cups of diced ham, yet still this recipe made up enough for 15 servings. It’s a terrific way to use up leftover ham from the holidays.

While the recipe has several steps, the outcome is certainly worth it. It’s also a great entree to take to potlucks or certainly when having company since it makes so many servings. If you enjoy comforting casseroles with biscuits, you’re sure to love this great recipe.

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

CHEDDAR BAY BISCUIT TOPPING:

  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  • 4 tbsp. salted butter cold
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese shredded

GARLIC PARSLEY BUTTER GLAZE:

  • 4 tbsp. salted butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt or to taste

Instructions
 

HAM MIXTURE:

  • In a Dutch oven, melt butter.
  • Add celery, onion, leeks and garlic.
  • SautĂ© until tender, about 5 minutes or when vegetables are about fork tender.
  • Add frozen mixed vegetables and stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle flour over top of veggies and stir to combine.
  • Cook another 2 minutes.
  • Add ham stock or chicken broth about 1/8 cup at a time until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Add parsley, marjoram, thyme, salt and pepper and stir into mixture.
  • Cook until thickened—about 10 minutes.
  • Add half-and-half or heavy whipping cream and cook an additional 2 minutes until incorporated and thickened.
  • Stir in ham.
  • Grease a 9 x13” glass baking dish.
  • Pour ham mixture into prepared dish.
  • Top with large cookie scoops of Cheddar Bay Biscuit dough.
  • Bake at 400° for 18-23 minutes or until biscuits are cooked through and biscuits are golden brown.
  • Brush Butter Glaze over top of biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven. 

CHEDDAR BAY BISCUITS:

  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  • Cut cold butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender.
  • Add sharp Cheddar cheese, milk (or half-and-half), and garlic powder.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until combined, but don't over mix.
  • Scoop dough with a one-quarter cup cookie scoop and drop the dough onto the ham and vegetable mixture.
  • Bake for 18-23 minutes in preheated oven.
  • The tops of the biscuits should begin to turn light brown and biscuits will be firm to the touch.
  • While the biscuits are baking, prepare Butter Glaze.

GARLIC PARSLEY BUTTER GLAZE:

  • Melt butter is a small bowl in the microwave.
  • Stir in garlic powder, dried parsley flakes and sea salt.
  • Use a pastry brush to spread the Butter Glaze over the tops of all the biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven. 

Notes

NOTE: My biscuits took about 26 minutes to cook completely.
 
NOTE: The biscuit mixture will NOT be very moist. If you add too much liquid the biscuits will flatten out.
 
NOTE: Avoid the temptation to increase the salt in this recipe. Remember the ham in the casserole and the cheese in the biscuits will also contain salt. It’s always easier to add additional salt after cooking, if necessary, rather than adding too much salt to begin with.
 
NOTE: I used all of the butter glaze for the biscuits, actually brushing each one about two or three times.
