How to Make Breakfast Biscuit Egg Cups
You only need to follow these six steps to make these Easy bacon and egg biscuit cups! You will be so glad that you made these tasty biscuits.
Step 1: Prep the oven and cook the bacon
Heat oven to 350°F. Cut each slice of bacon into three pieces. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until almost cooked. Just starting to crisp
Step 2: Cook your veggies
Remove bacon and place on paper towel. Quickly sauté your ½ cup of chopped vegetables in the hot bacon fat for a few minutes. Drain and set aside.
Step 3: Prep the muffin tin
Spray 6 jumbo muffin cups with cooking spray. Separate dough into 6 biscuits. Make them as even as possible. Place 1 biscuit in each muffin cup. Press dough three-fourths of the way up sides of cups and flat on the bottom.
Step 4: Fill the biscuit cups
Put a spoonful of your vegetable mixture and a pinch of shredded cheese on top. In a bowl beat the eggs together and add milk (or water) and pepper to taste.
Step 5: Fill the biscuit cups
Using a ladle, spoon egg mixture on top of veggies and cheese in each biscuit. Push bacon slices into the egg mixture. Leave some sticking out of the egg.
Step 6: Bake the breakfast biscuit cups
Bake 30-35 minutes or until egg is set. Run a small knife around the edge of the cups to loosen them. Use tongs to remove from tin. Serve immediately and enjoy.
Hint: If using cooked ground sausage or chopped ham add it first, before the veggies and cheese.
