In the realm of all things food, there’s nothing I love more than breakfast food.
At any time of the day, breakfast is my mantra. It speaks comfort to me. My Copycat Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole?
ALL. DAY. LONG!
My Delicious Elegant Egg Bake or Sausage Egg Casserole. In my tummy now!
But, school mornings are rough.
Typically, we have a hot breakfast, but it comes about an hour after our high school son has left home. He is the antithesis of a morning person. I’m fortunate to get a grunt, but grunts don’t give this momma a lot of motivation. Just sayin’.
So, I’ve been playing around with varying recipes that I can make up ahead of time and use throughout the week. These yummy Stuffed Breakfast Biscuit Muffins were a hit.
Basically, it’s taking your favorite scrambled eggs recipe, breakfast ingredients and stuffing them inside homemade biscuit dough. I gave directions for using store bought Bisquick or baking mix, but trust me, whip up my homemade Bisquick without shortening in bulk so you can use it for so many different recipes.
Play around with the additions to this. I gave you the base recipe, but I found that I varied the recipe even among my muffin tins. Some of our children love more biscuit and less filling. Personally, I love them filled with extra scrambled eggs, so I stuffed some with lots of extra eggs. You may end up varying the amount of eggs, cheese, bacon you use and you could even add sauteed onions and peppers if you desire a more vegetarian option. You just can’t go wrong with any variation.
So I want you to know, that even after this momma got a grunt, I decided to be a bit more proactive about morning breakfasts for my growing guy. These are perfect for breakfast on the go and I’m “thinking,” we might not be the only ones who eat in their car.
Enjoy and let me know how you changed it up.
