For those who are time challenged each morning, or who are cooking for one, breakfast is sometimes tough to accommodate...a healthy home-cooked one even more so. These "Eggs to Go" are easy to make singly or a half dozen at a time. They can be refrigerated or frozen and then heated up later. I used to do a batch on Sunday, freeze them, and then take them to work all week and nuke them in the break room when I got my coffee.
Making use of store bought biscuits and whatever "stuff" is lying around (including leftovers), the recipe is fairly simple and allows for a wide range of ingredients. A good rule of thumb is 1 egg to 1 biscuit to 1 Tbsp "stuff" to 1 Tbsp cheese. This Instructable is for a full batch.
6 Eggs (one for each Egg to Go)
- 1 cannister store bought biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands)
- 6 Tbsp shredded cheddar cheese (you can use any kind of cheese you want, shredded or not)
- 2 Tbsp fresh parsley (it was leftover in the fridge)
- 2 Tbsp orange bell pepper (I would have rather had bacon or ham, but there was none in the fridge)
- Pepper to taste
- 6 splashes of hot sauce (optional)
- Butter, oil, or non-stick spray for greasing muffin tin
Step 1: Smush!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using butter, oil, or non-stick spray, grease the muffin tin. Then place one uncooked biscuit in each muffin tin and smush them up the sides about halfway. If you are using a deeper muffin tin, smush them up 3/4 of the way up. You might have two biscuits left over, these can either be saved for later or rolled thin and used to make top crusts.
Step 2: Stuff!
Place the "stuff", in this case peppers and parsley, into the bottom of the biscuit-lined muffin cups. Do not add the cheese yet.
Step 3: Crack!
Crack one egg into each biscuit-lined muffin cup on top of the "stuff." Salt and Pepper to taste.
Step 4: Sprinkle!
Spinkle 1 Tbsp cheese onto each egg. Add a dash of optional hot sauce if desired.
Step 5: Bake and Serve Your Easy Eggs!
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. If desired, individually refrigerate or freeze in zipper lock plastic bags. To re-heat, microwave on high for 45-60 seconds.
