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.
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 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.
