  • 150 g of shaved black forest smoked ham smart and natural
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter

  1. Heat the oven to 425°F.

  3. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and mix until you have a uniform and firm dough.
  4. In a cup, beat the egg and milk until they are thoroughly combined.
  5. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients and then add ¾ of each of the Black Forest smoked ham, grated cheddar cheese and chopped chives. Mix well.
