Recipe: Texas Baked Biscuits

Summary: There’s breakfast, and then there’s BREAKFAST. This recipe, right here, is the latter. A big, flaky biscuit topped with peppered bacon, and filled with a soft-cooked egg.

Ingredients

    • 1 tube Texas-style refrigerated biscuit dough (the big ‘uns)
    • 8 eggs
    • 1/2 cup cooked peppered bacon, crumbled or real bacon bits
    • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    • 2 scallions, diced
    • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Lightly spray a standard-sized muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Open the tube of biscuit dough, and press one biscuit round into the muffin tin.
  2. To make sure there is room for the eggs, make sure you make a deep well in your dough by pressing the biscuit all the way up the sides of each muffin cup (see photo below).
  3. Crack an egg into each biscuit, top with bacon bits, cheddar, and scallions. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degress for 13-15 minutes.
  4. To ensure the center of your egg stays soft-cooked, remove the biscuits from the oven as soon as the edges begin to turn golden brown. Enjoy!

  1. Love this recipe, I used turkey sausage instead of bacon bits, and I actually had to put them back in for 10 extra minutes because the inside of the biscuits weren’t cooked all the way.

  2. These are excellent! I think medium eggs would fit the best, but I never buy that size. The whites went everywhere in the pan. Luckily I had sprayed all 12 spots, so the overflow just made some egg white disks! 🙂 Great idea! I cooked mine for about 20 minutes and a few yolks weren’t runny anymore but still soft, but the ones that were still runny were perfect!
