You may substitute leftover taco meat, cooked sausage, or bacon for the ham.
You can stuff these biscuits with nearly anything, including additional cheeses of your choosing.
Allowing the biscuits to cool in the muffin tin for about 5 minutes is crucial because it prevents the cheese from oozing out. To remove the biscuits from the pan, carefully run a knife down the sides of the biscuits.
