I know this is a bit last minute, and I’m sure I’m not the only one, so I figured I’d share this recipe anyway. You know, just in case there are other procrastinators out there who need a boost when it comes to a breakfast idea. This one is simple and quick, and can even be prepared the night before, so in the morning you can just pop it into the oven! It’s another one of those crowd pleaser kind of menu items, it has cheese, biscuits, eggs, and, you guessed it, BACON. Or sausage. Whichever is your cup of tea. This year we are doing a chicken breakfast sausage, as my mother doesn’t eat red meat. There are lots of options with this one when it comes to the meat choice, and you can always play with the cheese as well to make the perfect combination. Like spicy? Add pepperjack. Like mellow? Add some mozzarella. Lots of combinations! Ham, bacon, sausage…you could probably even get away with steak bits if you really wanted to.
So, be creative, be festive, and make your Christmas morning breakfast an easy yet delicious one. This would be excellent served with a fruit salad and some fresh orange juice, or even fresh eggnog! Or…of course, coffee!
Biscuit Breakfast Bake
1/4 cup milk
16 oz refrigerated breakfast biscuits ***DO NOT COOK FIRST***
4 scallions/green onions
1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese, or your choice of cheese.
If you’re into the meats – cooked bacon or cooked sausage, or even cooked ham!
9×13 pan, sprayed with cooking spray
1. Mix your eggs and milk in a large bowl. Cut each biscuit into fours and add it to the bowl.
2. Cut up your scallions, shred your cheese, cook and break up your bacon (or sausage). Add everything to the bowl.
3. Mix it all up and pour into your pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes .. closer to 30 so it isn’t runny. Let cool for 5-10minutes.
4. Serve and Enjoy!
Quick Tip- if you want to make this the night before leave it in the mixing bowl in the fridge covered with saran. In the morning, give it a good stir then pour into prepared baking dish and proceed to bake as directed!!!
