Breakfast Egg Biscuit

January 19, 2013

Today’s recipe credit goes right to my darling husband.  About a week ago, I had made cheddar biscuits to go with dinner.  You know the ones- the little bisquick pouch where you just add water, plop them on a baking sheet, and 8 glorious minutes later, you have biscuits!  It had made 6, and we had leftovers.  Wouldn’t you know it, the best breakfast sandwich was born… He took those leftover biscuits, added an egg, topped it with some guacamole, and wham! It’s breakfast.

Now, I will say, I’ve gone back and doctored these up a little since that first day.  Kevin likes his eggs over easy, and I only eat mine scrambled- however you like your eggs, this sandwich is a winner.  AND, if you make a batch of biscuits in advance (We now make them on Sundays and Wednesdays) you’ll really cut down your prep to plate time!

Breakfast Egg Biscuits

You’ll need:
1 pouch of bisquick cheddar garlic biscuits (or 3 cheese… They were out of those at our store, rats.)
1 100 Calorie pack of Wholly guacamole
1 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg
1 slice canadian bacon, ham, bacon, or sausage patty… your choice (go with the pre-cooked- saves time!)

If you haven’t premade your biscuits, then you’ll need to preheat your oven to 450.  Mix 1/2 cup of water with 1 pouch of biscuit mix and stir.  Plop them onto a greased/ sprayed baking sheet.  It should make 6- sometimes, I get carried away with how much to spoon out, and I only get 5 and they are HUGE.  6 is the way to go.  Anyway, pop those in the oven for 8 minutes and then let them cool for a minute or two after they are done.

Now that you have biscuits ready, this gets so much easier.

Whip up 1 egg, and scramble in a skillet over medium, stirring as you go.  Generally, this takes about 2 – 3 minutes for one egg.  In the final minute, top with 1 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese, so that it has time to get a smidge melty.  (Such technical terms today)

Turn off the heat and let your egg sit for a moment while you split your biscuit.  Spread a spoonful of guacamole onto the top of your biscuit.  I like Wholly Guacamole’s 100 Calorie packs because 1 pack is just about perfect for 2 people or 2 biscuits.  Today, we used the spicy guacamole- it packs a nice little kick!  If you’re on your own- no worries… use a spoonful and then pack the rest into a container with a tiny splash of lemon juice- the lemon juice will keep it from turning brown, which only means that your guacamole got oxidized- not a big deal.  I’ll take the extras sometimes with some carrot sticks for lunch or a snack.

Transfer your egg to the bottom half of your biscuit and top with your meat selection-  I chose ham today, and no- I didn’t intentionally cut it to look like a heart, that was just by sheer dumb luck!  Cute, right?

Plop your guac. coated biscuit top back onto your bottom half and dig in.  The slight crunch to the biscuit combined with the creaminess of the guacamole and soft, cheesy egg… one perfect bite.  Match it up with a hot cup of coffee, and you are sure to have a great start to your morning.  Plus- it’ll keep you filled up til lunch!

I’d love to stay and chat more about breakfast, but my sandwich is calling my name- and if I don’t dive in soon, the puppy will find a way to make my sandwich his!  

Until next time,
