Ham Biscuits & Potatoes

My friend Melissa made these delicious ham biscuits for her holiday party last month and people were raving about the little rolls all night! Unfortunately, I didn't get to eat any so I decided to make some of my own (and the regular kind for Mike), vegetarian style. The great thing about this recipe is you can cater it to just about any taste. Don't like ham? Substitute roast beef or chicken. You could also add all sorts of vegetarian meats to spice things up for the non-meat eaters. For a side I threw together my mom's oven roasted potatoes and dinner is served!

What you need:
King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
Ham (deli slices or fancy it up with an actual loaf)
Swiss Cheese, Cream Cheese, American Cheese
3/4 stick of butter
1 tbsp dijon mustard, Worchester sauce
1 tsp minced onion

What you do:
1. Cut the rolls in half, keeping all the tops together and all the bottoms together.
2. For the meat biscuits, layer ham and cheese, with a dab of cream cheese on the very top. Do the same for the veg biscuits, leaving off the meat. Cover with the top half of the rolls
3. Melt the butter and mix in the condiments. Coat the tops of the biscuits and refrigerate 15 minutes.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cheese is gooey.

Oven Roasted Potatoes
What you need:
5-6 medium red-skin potatoes
1/2 package of (dry) French onion soup mix
1/4 cup oil
Rosemary, salt, pepper

What you do:
1. Scrub the potatoes and chop into cubes. If you want to speed the process up, you can microwave for 10-15 minutes with about a 1/2 cup of water. Drain the water and proceed to next step.
2. Mix soup package, oil and seasonings and coat the potatoes. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until tender.
