Stuffed Breakfast Biscuits #Recipe

Breakfast biscuits

In trying to change up the breakfast offerings around our house, I went on the hunt a few months ago for great braakfast recipes on the Internet. As usual my search didn’t let me down. I found this awesome recipe on Yummy Mummy Club and it is hands down my family’s favourite breakfast treat lately. I have also made it for friends and they have loved it and of course asked for the recipe.  So here you go….

Stuffed Breakfast Biscuits 

Breakfast biscuits

ENJOY!!!

I love the concept of these stuffed biscuits and have thought about how to change it up.  For breakfast you can change out the bacon for sausage or ham, leave out the egg completely or throw in veggies to make it an omelet biscuit.  The options are endless and aren’t just reserved for breakfast.

Here are some other ideas I have for fillings…

Tacos – ground taco beef, cheese, tomatoes – dip in salsa and sour cream

Pulled pork & cheese

Ham & Cheese

Thanksgiving – Fill with leftover turkey and stuffing and serve with gravy or cranberry sauce

Polish – Fill with cut up sausages and pieces of pierogis

 

Can’t wait to try out some other ideas!   What fillings would you use?

Preheat non-stick pan or griddle to 250 or medium heat

Mix 2 eggs, 1/4 cup milk and a teaspoon of cinnamon in a shallow pie plate

Start forming the sandwiches – bread, slice of cheese, half slice bacon, slice of cheese, bread

Once all sandwiches are assembled, dip both sides of bread in your egg mixture and place on cooking surface

Cook each sandwich about 2-3 minutes per side, until a little crispy and cheese has melted enough to hold the sandwich together
