Homemade Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit Sandwiches

Hellooooo, hot stuff.

I love making breakfast easier for my (big) family. I’d love to buy out of convenience, and get some of those boxed breakfast microwave-and-done kind-of things from the store, but my conscience gets the better of me. Not only can I make it myself, and make it way better, I can do it at a fraction of the cost. And? If you time if just right, you’re not adding much more work to prepare it in advance.

homemade bacon egg and cheese biscuit sandwichesLast night, while preparing a big breakfast for dinner (eggs, pancakes, hashbrowns, sausage, bacon, etc.), I whisked up four extra eggs with 1/4 cup of milk, poured them evenly into a six-muffin heart-shaped pan (but any muffin pan will do), and baked them in the oven alongside biscuits. It barely added any extra work on my part to over-prepare more breakfast fixins to make our mornings move a little smoother.

I made the biscuits with a bit more liquid than it normally calls for, just so that it would spread out, more like a cookie, and be a better sandwich (in my opinion). Less crumbly. This way, I could sandwich them together, too. I made twelve of these “biscuit cookies” to make six sandwiches.

Once all ingredients were cooled to room temperature, using sliced cheese on a biscuit, I broke a piece of turkey bacon in half, criss-crossing it on top of the cheese, adding the heart-shaped egg, and finally the top biscuit. Wa-la! Easy-peasy and ready to go!

I wrapped each in cellophane, and placed ‘em in the freezer. The kids can pop out as they please, heat in the microwave for about a minute (or so, give or take), and have a homemade hot breakfast anytime.

TIP: The trick to heat breakfast sandwiches and wraps in the microwave is to sandwich them between two small bread plates, on flipped upside-down on top, so they heat thoroughly without drying out.

Aren’t they adorable? Even those heart-shaped eggs would look gorgeous on a morning breakfast plate with a couple slices of bacon, and a pancake or two, right? Maybe for Valentine’s Day? Or Mother’s Day? (Ahem.)
