Our family got together with 5 other families and went camping this past summer. The fun thing about camping with friends is sharing the responsibility of making meals. I signed up for breakfast and this is what I decided to make for everyone. I figured it was a good way for everyone to have a hot meal, without the mess of cooking eggs, bacon and biscuits at a campsite. They reheated wonderfully wrapped in foil and popped on our portable bbq.
These are also wonderful to make for busy school mornings when you want the kids to have a nice hot breakfast, but don’t have the time for all the work and clean-up.
My favorite way to cook bacon is to lay the pieces on some paper towels and pop them in the microwave, covered with some more paper towels to avoid splattering bacon grease. Just cook until bacon is half cooked, but not crispy.
………this could happen!
This was my first batch. Luckily I thought ahead and placed the pan on a cookie sheet to catch the drips. I also added some shredded cheese on top.
Regardless of the look, they still tasted amazing!
Here’s the lovely inside of the biscuit cup. You will love the moist bread and egg, contrasted with the crunchy bacon all in one big bite. These will be a hit with the family. The best thing is you can make a bunch and leave them in the fridge to be reheated for breakfast all week. I haven’t tried freezing them, but if you do and they work, let me know okay?
Bacon Egg and Biscuit Cups
15 eggs, scrambled
salt and pepper
½ pack of ham, diced
one pack chopped spinach, defrosted
30 slices bacon
shredded cheddar cheese
Scramble the eggs in a large measuring cup with a spout. Add salt and pepper. Flatten out each piece of biscuit dough with your fingers and cut into four pieces. Place the pieces into greased cupcake pan. Par-cook the bacon in the microwave then wrap the bacon around the top of the biscuit dough.
Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and pour in the scrambled egg mixture into each cup, only about 2/3 full. Put on the toppings of ham, spinach, cheese or anything else you like.
Put the pan back into the oven for 10-15 minutes or until eggs are cooked. Remove each biscuit cup and enjoy warm.
Makes 30 biscuit cups.
