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 (can use turkey and/or 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.
