Are you a “breakfast for dinner” type of person?  I am!  I’m so drawn to recipes for breakfast foods, OR recipes that contain eggs as a main ingredient.
Sooooo…., here is another quick and hearty “breakfast for dinner” or “breakfast for breakfast” recipe, and these “puffs” are soooo easy, and a little different and fun, that your family is sure to be pleased!

Ingredients:

—5 eggs beaten

—1/2 cup chopped, cooked bacon or ham (optional)

Pat the biscuits down and up the sides a little, in a muffin pan lightly sprayed with vegetable oil.

Whip your 5 eggs, and divide the mixture up between the 10 biscuits, so you get about 1/2 an egg in each biscuit cup.  Then sprinkle with cheese, and if you like, diced ham or bacon.  Try to get very close to the same amount in each cup, so they will cook in the same amount of time.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until your egg is cooked all the way.

  • If you want to use more or less biscuits, just adjust the eggs to one per two biscuits.
  • Also, use the smaller biscuits or your puffs will be too big and push the egg out of the pan, and will take longer to cook (Been there, done that).

  8. I have made these with sausage before, only I used the BIG flakey biscuts, & seperated into 3 layers & you get 24 cups from an 8 count. These sound really good with the ham.

  9. I found this on Pinterest and it looks great! Do you think they’d freeze well? I love freezing things so that we just have to pop it in the microwave and go.

  11. I’ve tried several of your recipes over the past couple months and this was by far the easiest and my entire family loved them. It really was a meal done in under 20 min! Thanks!

  12. This recipe is AWESOME! I put cheese between the biscuit and egg layer and put cooked bacon bits on top before baking. DELISH and soooo simple!!! Thank you for posting this recipe (:

  13. Quick and easy! This is something my daughter (who bikes to school) can take with her when she’s running late rather than a donut or worse, nothing at all! Great idea!
