In a the bowl of a food processor combine 4 cups flour, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt, pulse a couple of time to combine. Drop in butter pieces and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour mixture into a large bowl and add cheese, mix well. Using your hands, make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add 1/2 cup milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it just until dough holds together. Roll dough until 3/4 inch thick. Cut dough with a floured biscuit cutter; re-roll scraps as necessary. Place biscuits on a prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the cubed ham and onion. Cook until ham is browned and the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining butter and stir until melted. Sprinkle in the remaining flour and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in the remaining milk. Cook until mixture thickens, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sage, and parsley, and season with salt and lots of fresh cracked black pepper.
The directions say in step #3 to add 1 1/2 cups of milk all at once….that is the total amount of milk called for in the ingredients listing. Step #6 says to whisk in remaining milk….but it was all used in step #3. Is step 3 suppose to be only 1/2 cup milk? I really want to make these!!!! They look and sound amazing!
