Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit Muffins (Veggie Option!)

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit Muffins (Veggie Option!)

It’s funny how sometimes the recipes that take the least amount of effort are what satisfy most. When we planned our brunch we put these muffins on the menu to ensure that there would be something for the kiddos to eat. Turns out the adults liked them best.

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit Muffins (Veggie Option!)

They are so simple to make that it’s almost comical, but  they really produce oooos and ahhhhs. It starts with packaged (yes! packaged!) biscuit dough. We buy ours at Trader Joe’s because it doesn’t have that partially hydrogenated junk in it. Then we take a rolling pin and flatten them out a bit.

My kid’s favorite part is stuffing them into well greased muffin tins to form a little well for the bacon egg and cheese. He has his own technique for this making sure none of the dough touches.

Then we bake them up for 10 or 12 minutes and have ourselves a little breakfast muffin. Even the vegetarian of the house is satisfied – his muffins are filled with veggie bacon, egg and cheese or with egg and cheese only. Now for the recipe…

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit Muffins

Prep Time: 5 mins  Cooking Time: 20 to 25 mins

1 package biscuit dough (10 biscuits)
3 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup of shredded cheddar
4 slices bacon (we used turkey bacon and veggie bacon)
salt and pepper

Cook the bacon in a pan or in the oven until it’s almost done. Chop into small bits and set aside. (Note: if using veggie bacon do not cook it ahead – simply defrosted it and chopped it up.) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together eggs and milk, a pinch of salt and some cracked pepper to taste and set aside. Meanwhile, roll out each biscuit until it’s slightly bigger than the circumference of your muffin tin. Grease the muffin tin with cooking spray and push one biscuit into each muffin cup being sure to push it all the way down and to the sides. Leave the ridge hanging over the edge. Divide the cheese evenly in each of the biscuit cups and then pour egg in, filling each cup only 1/2 way. They will look empty but resist the urge to top them off. You must account for the biscuits puffing up – otherwise you’ll have a mess on your hands. Sprinkle bacon atop of the egg and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until biscuits are golden and eggs are set. Use a butter knife to loosen each muffin and serve warm.

Note: if your egg does overflow, just let it bake the rest of the way and then remove the extra egg when you are loosening the muffins. They’ll still taste terrific.

    Oh my goodness. This is so clever. Perfect for a brunch buffet. I'm glad to know about Trader Joe's biscuits. I generally try to stay away from canned biscuits because of all of the bad stuff in them. Thanks for including that advice. I'll definitely give this a try.

    No packaged biscuit dough here in Italy so I guess that makes it a little less quick and easy. But looks great. My little girl helps cook a lot too and her hands often show up in the photos…your set of wee hands is adorable.

    October 13th, 2010… make a biscuit like this one and you will be floored at how quick and easy they are with no preservatives. You can even use gluten free flour for those with Gluten allergies.

    I love this idea and can't wait to try it with my daughter. Thanks for sharing! I love cooking together. We've been making recipes lately from Gigi Centaro's cookbook, "Let's Cook Tonight," which has been so easy and fun I highly recommend it. Plus you can get free menus from her website.

    I did not have luck with these. The biscuit part burned before the egg was cooked. Next time I'll try a lower temp for longer to see if that helps. They smelled good, though, which made it even more difficult to throw them out!

  20. 20.) CookingWithMyKid
    October 16th, 2010

    That's a bummer. Did you touch the eggs at the 10 minute mark? The baked eggs don't always look done even though they are – plus they keep cooking even after you remove them from the oven. And, perhaps your oven is calibrated a bit hotter than mine? Good luck next time. They are seriously delicious.

    I made these this morning for our bake sale at work forgetting that today is also free bagel and muffin day here. I just pushed the biscuits into a muffin tin and then filled the hole with pre-cooked breakfast sausage and covered with cheddar cheese. Surprisingly these were all sold before noon despite having all the free bagels & muffins next to them. Thanks for a great recipe! I am planning on making these for our house guests come holiday time.

    These sound amazing and I will try them one way or the other, I’m just wondering if anyone has tried freezing some after baking them and reheating them. How did they do? Sounds like they should do ok. I live alone and having something like this in my freezer to heat up in the morning would be a great, quick breakfast I’m thinking.

    I did this with puff pastry and my co-workers LOVED them! Cept I precooked the eggs just a bit, leaving them a bit runny…and it made it a bit quicker in the morning to bake and head out the door!!
