Buttermilk Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches

Buttermilk Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches

Serves: One per person

Time: 20 mins

Kid Friendly Tasks: Adding Cheese

So I made a larger than normal batch of my awesome buttermilk biscuits. My father in law was in town and I wanted to make sure everyone had plenty to eat (I always over cook when he comes, but it’s still a benefit because we just eat through the leftovers during the week.) We had the original batch of biscuits with roast chicken dinner. Normally I try to make exactly the right amount of biscuits because they just don’t keep. That light fluffiness seems to vanish and then they become very buttery rocks. In this case I’d been careful to wrap the cooled leftover biscuits well in plastic as quickly as possible so they were still pretty fresh. I decided, in honor of my husband, former teenage MacDonald’s employee that he was, to make my own “Egg McMuffin” only a good one, of course.

Kid Friendly Tasks: Biscuit Cutter

I love biscuits. Who doesn’t? Butterwise they should be considered a dessert. They are that rich, but I like them anytime and often make them as a side for roast chicken or beef stew. Mine alternate between drop biscuits (lazy biscuits which is totally me) and proper rolled out biscuits cut with a cutter. Probably you will only want one as they can be light, but heavy, if that makes an odd sort of sense (there are several tablespoons of butter in each biscuit so one per guest is probably enough). The recipe below doubles well and is actually halved from the original.

So I’ve mentioned that I might be addicted to PostCrossing and have been using it as a fun source of new recipes. Well I’m super excited about today’s recipe because it is for fabulous waffles and comes straight from the source. I got this recipe from a Postcrosser in Belgium and true to her non-American nature she recommends serving them with powdered sugar, whipped cream and fruit or ice cream and chocolate sauce. I have since enlightened her as to the wonders of maple syrup.
