If you’re wondering what a drop biscuit is, it’s a simplified version of a biscuit made by dropping spoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet instead of kneading and rolling it out and using a cutter.

As they bake, they spread out into biscuits.

As I mentioned, making this easy recipe for low-carb ham and cheese biscuits is simple, but it will require breaking out your sifter. But I promise, it’s worth the little effort.

Sifting all of the dry ingredients together (after measuring them out) ensures you have a light and fluffy keto biscuit to enjoy!

Once you’ve sifted the dry ingredients, you’ll add the rest of your ingredients, sour cream, butter, shredded cheese, ham, parsley, and eggs, and combine well using a fork.

Once you have a well-combined batter, drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake until golden brown.

Brush on some melted butter right after taking them out of the oven, sprinkle some parsley on them, and enjoy!

Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month in an airtight container.
