Egg, Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Biscuit
New Year’s Eve was so much fun this year; New Year’s morning, not so much. We stayed up waaaaayyy too late and while it took a toll on us, Cassidy was ready to play early in the morning. So up we were, and hungry earlier than usual (we are notably not breakfast eaters). Egg, Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Biscuit it is.
Happy New Year!

(A note, if you don’t have the ingredients to make Buttermilk biscuits, which are superior tasting, this recipe will do)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, add 2 cups flour with 2 teaspoons sugar and 2 teaspoons baking powder. Pour 1 1/4 cup heavy cream into dry ingredients, stir/blend with a wooden spoon, and once it starts to form a thick doughy texture, remove from bowl and place on counter. Add 1/4 cup of heavy cream to the crumbs still in the bottom of the bowl to blend and what makes a thick doughy texture, remove from bowl and add to the other dough (what’s left can be disregarded). Roll out, cut into squares or circles (I use the open end of a drinking glass). Bake for 8-10 minutes.
While baking, fry up some bacon, then eggs (we poke the yolk after the egg has been in the pan for a minute). Add to the biscuit, and top with cheese!
