Ham, Asparagus & Swiss Biscuit Cups

These biscuit cups stuffed with ham, asparagus, and Swiss cheese are great for breakfast or breakfast-for-dinner! Use refrigerated biscuits to save time making these fluffy egg cups with all your favorite fillings.

Breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. These simple biscuit cups filled with ham, asparagus, and Swiss cheese can be whipped up quickly in a matter of minutes. Sometimes, I’m just not in the mood for toast and cereal and want a more substantial meal. Not that these little guys are huge, but they hit the spot when you wake up hungry.

I recommend making a few batches of these little guys because they will be gobbled up quickly! Don’t worry, they are easy to make. Use refrigerated biscuits to save on time. The last thing I want to do when I roll out of bed in the morning is prepare an elaborate breakfast. These Ham, Asparagus & Swiss Biscuit Cups fit the bill perfectly.

Ham, Asparagus & Swiss Biscuit Cups - These flaky bite-sized biscuits are loaded with ham, Swiss and asparagus, but can be completely customized to your family's taste buds!

Kids love them, too! You can sneak in some veggies and they might not even notice. My daughter has an eye for veggies so could probably tell what I was doing. She’d be more apt to try this recipe than say, a plate of asparagus. It’s more fun to eat something that is bite sized, don’t you think?


  • Refrigerated biscuits: I have a mild obsession with refrigerated biscuits. I watch for the sales and then buy in bulk. They are so versatile! You can create just about any kind of recipe with them. Let your creative juices flow, I say!
  • Ham: I love ham, and I put it in everything I can! You could also use bacon, sausage, turkey, or even shredded chicken! Just make sure any meat you use is cooked beforehand. 
  • Asparagus: This is my favorite green veggie! Be sure to chop up the asparagus to fit it into the biscuit cups.
  • Swiss cheese: If you don’t like Swiss cheese, you can swap for any shredded cheese that melts. It has that perfect saltiness these cups need!
  • Eggs: You’re basically making a small quiche, so you’ll need some eggs.
  • Milk: For the fluffiest scrambled eggs, add a little milk. You won’t regret it.

    How To Make It

    1. First, preheat the oven, and grease a muffin pan with cooking spray.
    2. Then, separate the biscuits, and put one in each muffin pan hole. Press the dough into the pan to conform to the cup shape.
    3. Now, bake the biscuits for a few minutes. Press on them with the back of a spoon before filling.
    4. To make the filling, beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together, Then, add the ham and asparagus. Divide the mixture between the biscuit cups, and top them with Swiss cheese.
    5. Finally, bake the Pillsbury biscuit cups until the eggs are set and the biscuits are lightly browned. Let them cool a few minutes before removing them from the pan.

    I wouldn’t make this recipe every week because I’m lazy in the mornings, but they are a nice little treat from time to time or when you have company visiting and want to impress them. Everyone always gobbles these biscuit cups up quickly!
