What's Cooking Wednesday - Breakfast Biscuits

I saw this recipe for
No Time For Breakfast Biscuits and really thought I had hit the jackpot. I am always attracted to the idea of combining things to make my life easier. And honestly, they were good...maybe I could have added a different flavor of sausage and more salt (or real bacon, not turkey bacon) but overall, I think I will make these again at some point. Although, another blog I read, Pioneer Woman Cooks, had a recipe for Bacon Cheddar Onion Biscuits that I think I may try and compare. I even froze them and pulled them out of the freezer the night before to thaw and they were still great straight out of the microwave the next morning.

No Time For Breakfast Biscuits

  • 1 tablespoon EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 strips bacon, chopped
  • 5 eggs, divided
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 1/4 cups baking mix, such as Bisquick
  • 1 cup milk for mix
  • 1 cups shredded yellow cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 pack of pork sausage (optional)
Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon. Add the bacon to the pan and cook until golden brown and crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Add the sausage to the pan. Cook and crumble the sausage and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Beat 4 eggs in a small mixing bowl. Add the eggs to the pan that the bacon was cooked in, season with salt and pepper, and scramble them lightly. Transfer the eggs to a plate and reserve.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the baking mix, milk and remaining egg to make the batter. Gently stir in the crispy bacon, reserved scrambled eggs and shredded cheese.

Deposit dollops of the batter onto a greased baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
