Update - I finally made the biscuit "ible" I promised, so now you can see how to make the biscuit dough like I do. Homemade biscuits
Step 1: Ingredients
2 slices bacon (you can also use sausage)
2 eggs, scrambled.
biscuit dough; you can use premade, but I use homemade. (but thats another instructable)
table spoon of milk
and one preheated oven(450 degrees)
Step 2: Cooking eggs
Pour the eggs in a hot buttered pan and cook until they clump together but don't brown them!
*Authors note, if you want to add chopped onions, this is by far the best time, they gett cooked better this way, and taste awesome in the pastie*
Step 3: Cooking the bacon
Step 4: Building the Pastie
when the Pastie is full you need to fold the other half of the dough over the top, crimp the edges on the sides together so it stays together well.
Step 5: Folding and Preparing the Pastie
Step 6: Baking
Step 7: Enjoying
B.T.W. if you come up with any great Ideas / modifications for this tell me so in the comments.
Step 8: The biscuit dough
- 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
- 5 1/4 cups flour
- 3 TBSP baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 1/4 cups milk
Mix the dry ingredients with the butter. When well mixed slowly add milk till it's at the right consistently. Add milk slowly, but quickly (I know, I know). The main thing is, you need to knead the dough as little as possible. Mix in the milk, and stop as soon as it's the right consistency.
Once it's finished, you can use it for breakfast pasties, dumplings, and even (gasp) biscuits. Keep an eye out for the actual biscuit ible.
