I have a love/hate relationship with my snooze button. I love pressing it, but I hate having to rush to get ready for work in the miniscule amount of time I end up leaving myself. Unfortunately, my morning snooze-fest also doesn’t afford me the best conditions for making a big healthy breakfast. One of the ways I’m still able to eat a tasty hot breakfast on the go is by making a big batch of something at the beginning of the week that I can just grab and heat up each morning. Baked oatmeal works great for this, but sometimes I want a more savory breakfast. These breakfast cups are perfect because they combine several of my favorite breakfast foods into one. They’re easy to put together and unlike a traditional bacon & egg breakfast, they’re hand-held, so you can eat them on the run!
I used center cut bacon, which is a leaner cut of pork than traditional bacon. If you prefer turkey bacon that’s fine, it will not affect the points+ value.
Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit CupsSource: Adapted from Cooking with My Kid
4 slices center cut bacon (I used Oscar Meyer Center Cut)
3 large eggs
3 T skim milk
Salt & black pepper, to taste
1 can Refrigerated Biscuit Dough (10 biscuits, 7.5 oz - I used my store brand)
1/3 c reduced fat 2% shredded cheddar
1. Preheat the oven to 400. Lightly mist a muffin tin with cooking spray
2. Place the raw bacon in a large skillet and cook for 7-9 minutes or until done. Remove from skillet and let dry on paper towels. Chop into small pieces and set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt and pepper and whisk together until thoroughly blended.
4. Using a rolling pin, roll each biscuit into a larger flat circle and place into a cup in the prepared muffin tin. Using your fingers, press the dough into the bottom of each cup and up the sides. Divide the cheese evenly between each cup and then split the egg mixture between each cup as well. Sprinkle the bacon pieces on top of each cup and put in the oven for 10-12 minutes until biscuits are golden brown and eggs are set.
