Homemade Breakfast Biscuits (cheaper, better, healthier than fast food or prepared food & these freeze very well)

We have found out that with our family of four that six chickens is a few too many.  We have oodles of eggs (2-3 dozen) within a week.  We give away eggs weekly and then we try to find recipes that we can make that have lots of eggs in them.

One of our family favorites are the breakfast biscuits.  We have made these a few times. 

Depending upon your taste you can use a combination of onions, bell peppers, sausage, bacon and cheese.  You can use whatever amounts you are comfortable with.

Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

1 dozen eggs beaten
1-2 T milk
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 log Breakfast Sausage (crumble cooked)
½ to 1 package Bacon (cut up and cooked)
2 C Cheese (your choice)

Mix together in a bowl and pour into a 9 x 13 pan, bake at 375 for 25 minutes, more or less time depending upon your oven, let cook and slice into the number of biscuits that you have or the size of the biscuit. 

Optional ingredients:
Bell pepper, onions, mushrooms, spinach, kale….basically whatever you think you will like or know you like in your eggs or egg biscuits.  Below we made sausage patties, since we have decided it is easier to use the crumble cooked breakfast sausage.

We do use one short cut for this and that is frozen biscuits, cook as instructed on package.  We try to get the frozen grands biscuits, they are smaller and they don’t get a netchie (that is only way to describe it) as the grands biscuits from the refrigerator section. (picture provided are using the refrigerated biscuits)


Another note, you don’t have to make these into biscuits sandwiches, you can cook the eggs as above, cut into slices and eat as a nice healthy low carb breakfast as well, if eaten this way you can top with more cheese, sour cream, salsa or however you prefer to eat your scrambled eggs.  These also freeze very well.

If freezing them as biscuits, try to remember to bring them out the night before so they are thawed and then you can microwave them for 30 seconds. Otherwise, if they are frozen you can start off in the microwave for 1 minute and go from there until the middle is no longer cold.

If freezing as a low carb breakfast then place thawed egg in microwave for about 20 seconds.

Enjoy, I know my family really enjoys these and we all grab them as a nice a filling breakfast in the mornings (when we remember)....sometimes even at night.
