All in 1 Bacon & Egg Breakfast Biscuits are fun to make, and a welcome addition to your weekend brunch. Store bought biscuit dough is transformed into a delicious grab and eat breakfast treat.
Do you look for new and tasty items to serve for breakfast and brunch? We rarely go out for breakfast. I am always trying new fun things to spruce up my favourite meal of the weekend…brunch!!!
I will be the first to admit breakfast is not my favourite meal of the day. Brunch is a whole other ball game. This is my time to have fun in the kitchen. Pancakes, waffles, french toast, breakfast casseroles, you name it, I am pretty sure some sort of version has made an appearance on our table.
One thing I totally LOVE about making scrumptious recipes on the weekend is the fact I usually make a huge batch. I will either save leftovers for another time in the week, especially if it is going to be crazy busy.
FREEZER FRIENDLY MEALS
The best part is, most of the recipes are freezer friendly. These meals have saved the day so many times. I would much rather pull something out of the freezer and heat it up than order takeout. Food tastes yummy and saves us lots of money.
I freeze muffins, pancakes, and even extra servings of casseroles. All come in handy down the road. Popping some pancakes into the toaster is a quick and delicious breakfast. My Freezer Friendly Egg Muffin Baked Omelettes make a great quick and easy weeknight dinner paired with a salad or some hash browns.
COOKING WITH EGGS
Do you like eating eggs? They are such a nutritious protein source. Perfect for any meal of the day. Hard boiled eggs are a great healthy snack option. If you have never tried pickled eggs, then you really need to give Easy Classic Pickled Eggs a try.
Breakfast for dinner is a favourite around here. Poached Eggs & Lentil Hash is something we love, and is a great meatless meal option.
SILICONE MUFFIN PANS
Just recently I purchased some silicone muffin pans. They are so cool. Have you used them before?
These All in 1 Bacon & Egg Breakfast Biscuits just pop right out. For this recipe I used the large Texas size pans. I am already mulling over my next experiment with them. It will be a fun and tasty time for sure.
So back to the recipe. Easy, peasy, simple. Grab some store bought biscuit dough. I used some Pillsbury Breakfast Sandwich Biscuit dough, but really any large biscuit dough will do here.
Cook some bacon. I used 6 slices of thick cut maple flavoured bacon. Place on paper towel to drain off the excess fat. Chop up some fresh parsley, and whip up 8 large eggs in a measuring cup with some salt and pepper.
**Note** Place your silicone muffin pans on a cookie sheet BEFORE you fill them.
Take the dough and gently stretch each disc into about a 5 1/2 circle. Line the muffin tin with the dough, and gently press into the sides and bottom of the muffin tin.
Place about 1 1/2 tsp. of bacon into each muffin cup. Pour in some egg, and top with parsley. Bake for about 32-35 minutes. Let cool for a minute or two and gently pop them out of the pan.
I don’t know about you, but breaking open this flaky All in 1 Bacon & Egg Breakfast Biscuit is the perfect way to start any weekend. It’s like wanting to have a slice of the fresh baked bread that just comes out of the oven.
These will be happening a lot around here. If I am lucky I just might be able to put a few in the freezer too!!
