Eat Big for Breakfast: Texas Baked Biscuits

By Brooke McLay |

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.   With the weather coming in cool and drizzly, with a day full of school and work and housecleaning, with that pit in your tummy gnawing fiercely before your 10 a.m. snacktime, isn’t it time you baked up a warm, hearty breakfast?  Sure, but who has the time, right?  Well, you do.  Because thiese Texas Baked Eggs make clever use of a few convenience products, resulting in homecooked goodness in less than 15 minutes.

Big O’l Texas Biscuit Baked Eggs
1 tube Texas-style refrigerated biscuit dough (the big ‘uns)
8 eggs
1/2 cup real bacon bits
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
diced scallions
salt & pepper to taste
Lightly spray a standard-sized muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.   Open the tube o biscuit dough, and press one biscuit round into the muffin tin.  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).  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.  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!

    Made these this morning and they are good! I just recommend getting an extra large muffin pan so that the egg doesn’t overflow as that happened to me. :)

    This is a delicious recipe. My picky eater loves them. If you don’t have larger muffin pans and you already have a tube of larger size biscuits in the fridge, I found that if I use a fork to punch holes in the dough after I formed them to the muffin pan, they won’t rise up nearly as much. Also, I whipped 5 eggs and divided them among the 8 biscuits, so they wouldn’t overflow.

    Nice.. made them this morning with homemade buttermilk biscuits.. they were awesome! Warning: grease the pan! I disregarded this instruction as I don’t normally grease a pan for biscuits..had to work a little to get them out in one piece as a result. Also, don’t let them linger in the muffin tin.. turn out immediately or the egg yolk will continue to cook from the heat of being encased in hot biscuits! Great recipe.. thanks for posting!
