Recipe to Reality: Breakfast Muffins

   These aren't your typical muffins! These are delicious, easy, and adorable muffins that wrap up all your favorite breakfast foods!

Bacon, Egg, Cheese, what more do you need?
  My husband and I had one of our best friends over so I wanted to make him something unique for breakfast! When I saw these interesting muffins from YummyMummyClub, I knew these were what I was looking for!

   The ingredients are very simple: 1 can of Pillsbury biscuits, 6-7 strips of bacon cut into chunks, 4 eggs scrambled, and about 3-4 slices of American cheese.

   You will also need a greased muffin tin, and a roller of some sort.

   First, I started by frying my bacon strips on about medium flame until crispy.

   Then, I scrambled 4 eggs (with a splash of milk for fluffiness) in a bit of the bacon grease with a dash of salt and pepper.

   Once you have the bacon and eggs cooked, you are ready to assemble! I used Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Reduced Fat biscuits, but you can use any kind you'd like. I don't own a rolling pin to roll out my biscuit dough with, so my genius friend "Cup of Joe" suggested to use the side of a ceramic bowl to roll out the dough. Totally worked!

   Once you have your biscuit rolled out, you scoop a bit of scrambled eggs into the middle, add 3-4 pieces of the chopped bacon, and top with 1/2 a slice of American cheese. Feel free to substitute your favorite cheese!

   Next comes the fun part! Stretch the biscuit around your filling and pinch the sides to make a completely sealed biscuit full of breakfasty goodness!

   Place the biscuits seam side down into your muffin tin and brush with an eggwash (an egg whisked with some water). The eggwash will make the tops of your muffins brown and give them a little flavor. It also helps keep the salt and pepper from falling off the biscuit while baking. 

Artistic Placement!
   Bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes and they are ready for breakfast! We used a little ketchup as a dipping sauce, but hot sauce would have paired nicely as well. These would be great as an on-the-go meal as well.

   As I was making these, I couldn't help but think about all the other possibilities there are for these biscuit muffins! Here are some I'd like to try - tomato sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni for pizza bites, apples, butter, and cinnamon for apple pie bites, and my friend Cup of Joe's suggestion - Nutella, fluff, and banana!


   A combination of a short prep time, virtually no cleanup, and the fun involved pinching these yummy muffins together lead me to believe I will be experimenting with these biscuit muffins in the near future!

They look like perfect little pillows!
