Apple, Ham and Cheese Dinner Cups

Apple, Ham and Cheese Dinner Cups from The Cottage Mama.

My mom (Grandma Jane) came to stay with us for a week after baby Cass was born.  Whenever she comes after I have a baby she brings tons of recipes and does major cooking.  She completely stocked our freezer with easy-to-prepare meals and little shortcuts (like already cooked shredded chicken) to make my life easier.

Well, while mom did tons of cooking while she was here, there were a couple recipes she never got around to making, so I decided to try my hand at this one after she left – Apple, Ham, and Cheese Dinner Cups.  Mom forgot the recipe, so I lucked out and found it in our kitchen after she left.  She had already bought all the ingredients, so it was super-easy for me to whip up!  I called them dinner “cupcakes” to entice my girls to give them a try.

Apple, Ham and Cheese Dinner Cups
Recipe type: Main Course, Kid-Friendly
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5
  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Layers Biscuits (10 count)
  • ⅓ cup sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup apricot preserves
  • ¾ cup chopped ham
  • ¾ cup chopped apple
  • ¾ cup cheddar or jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Pull out your regular sized muffin pan and spray with cooking spray. Open biscuit can and stretch out each biscuit to about 2.5"-3" wide. Place biscuit into muffin tray, pressing it so it's like a little cup that you can use to put your filling inside.
  3. Mix sour cream, mustard and preserves together in a bowl. Once mixed, add your meat, apple, cheese and green onions. Divide the mixture among the 10 muffin cups. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown. I suggest using the middle rack of your oven.
  4. Serve two per plate along with a nice side salad.

  1. Whoa, now that looks good! 🙂

  2. Looks good – and easy. Will try. Thanks for posting!

  3. This is my kind of recipe….quick, easy and tasty, as well as pretty to look at! I will be trying this. It is one of those things you could be very creative with, too, like do a chicken one, etc.

  4. I am so hungry and I need these RIGHT NOW!

  5. These cupcakes look delicious and so easy to make. I cook it with little difference. Added dairy milk chocolate and creams in middle after 30% baking. So delicious and testy dish.

  6. I’m definitely not a sweet with savory person so apples with ham and biscuits doesn’t intrigue me. However, this would be super easy to change to suit any specific taste (mine being plain lol)!!!

    Is Cass short for Cassandra by any chance? That’s my name. ;0)

    Think I’ll go put biscuits on my grocery list now. :0)

  7. Mmm, that sounds so yummy! I’ll be pinning this, thanks!
