Hearty Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuits

My husband worked some early shifts over the weekend and needed a quick and filling breakfast that he could grab on his way out the door. I whipped up these breakfast biscuits from what I had in the fridge! You could make these in the morning to eat immediately or make them ahead like I did. Here’s the simple, easy recipe!

Ingredients: (You can adjust the amounts of all ingredients to suit your needs)

  • Canned or frozen biscuits
  • Eggs
  • Canadian Bacon
  • Cheese Slices

Directions:

Bake biscuits according to directions. Let cool and split open on a plate. Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a medium skillet over medium low heat. Beat eggs in a small bowl, add salt and pepper and pour into skillet. Let eggs cook until edges are set, then flip eggs so they cook evenly (you basically want an under cooked omelet). Fry or heat Canadian bacon until warm.

To assemble biscuits:

Place a few slices of bacon on the bottom of the biscuit. Cut eggs into sections and place a section on top of the bacon. Top with a slice of cheese and the other half of the biscuit.

If not eating immediately, slightly under cook the eggs – they will cook more when reheated.  Let the biscuits cool completely before refrigerating. When ready to eat, microwave for 20 seconds on high. They heat up more quickly than you might think – be careful not to overcook the eggs! Unless you like overcooked eggs….then help yourself. 🙂
