I am always looking for new ways to enjoy my eggs in the morning. Sure, scrambled eggs are great, but everyone needs a change now and then. This recipe is a little too involved to make on a regular school morning, unless you are up early, but they are ideal for a weekend brekkie with the kids. They were inspired by my favorite soda bread biscuits, which I usually serve with a hard boiled egg on the side. My personal favorite thing to do is crack open the center, scoop out the egg and make a little breakfast sandwich. Pull off this cool biscuit treat this weekend and wow your family. Everyone will love the soft silky yoke encased in the fluffy buttery biscuit.
Hard Boiled Egg in a Biscuit:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 large pinch kosher salt
2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter cut into small pieces
2/3 cup buttermilk
4 eggs hard boiled
1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set side.
2. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade pulse the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour and pulse a few more times until small pebbles form.
3. Whisk the buttermilk until it is pourable and stir it into the batter until just combined.
4. Divide the batter in half. Use one half to form four equal size circles and place them on the lined baking sheet. Top each one with an egg standing upright. Cover each egg with the remaining batter. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, then reduce the heat down to 400 degrees F and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
