Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches

Go Bold With Butter

Whether it’s a hurried get-to-school-day or a lazy weekend morning, I’m a huge cheerleader for eating a homemade, hearty breakfast. It’s the gas to get our mornings roaring and essential fuel for eager minds, so let’s make breakfast food count and taste good at the same time.

On busy days, I try to avoid standard issue cereal and instead love having a grab and go option with a better balance of protein, carbs and tastiness, and this sandwich is one of my favorites.

Sliced hard-boiled eggs and bacon that’s ready and waiting in the fridge is sandwiched into warm-out-of-the-oven biscuits and topped with a slice of melty cheese. To make it even faster, go ahead and bake the biscuits the night before, assemble the sandwiches and keep in the fridge then simply heat up the whole shebang in the microwave before you hustle out the door.

Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches
Makes 12 biscuit sandwiches

Ingredients:

For the biscuits:
4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces but still very cold (½ stick), plus 1 tablespoon for the pan
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk

For the sandwiches
12 biscuits
12 thin slices Cheddar cheese
6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
6-8 slices warm, cooked bacon

Directions:

To make biscuits:
Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Prepare 9-inch straight sided cake pan with butter and set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and kosher salt. Add small pieces of butter and work into flour mixture with fingers until texture resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir buttermilk into flour mixture until it just comes together and dough is a little shaggy looking. Knead dough a few times in bowl then turn out onto lightly floured surface. Pat dough into a 1/2-inch thick shape.

Cut biscuits out with 2-inch biscuit cutter dipped in flour. Place biscuits in the prepared pan. Fold remaining dough over itself and pat into another 1/2-inch thick shape and continue to cut biscuits until you’ve used all the dough. You should have about 12 biscuits.

Bake 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Remove from oven and turn out into towel, cover and let rest while preparing sandwiches.

To prepare sandwiches:
Separate warm biscuits into top and bottom halves and place 1 slice of Cheddar cheese on the bottom, top with 4-5 slices of hard-boiled egg, a few slices of bacon and top biscuit half.

Repeat with remaining biscuits.

If biscuits have cooled and cheese doesn’t melt, place composed sandwiches on plate and place in turned off but still warm oven for 5 minutes or so for cheese to melt. Or, microwave on high for 30 seconds.
