Twice now I've made the buttermilk biscuit recipe from Pioneer Woman's new cookbook.
Her biscuits are pretty good, but I think instead of posting the recipe for them, I'm going to show you what happened to a couple of the left overs. Any biscuit recipe would probably do just fine with these.
One of the things I miss from America is the McDonald's menu. I know how that sounds - but let me finish. McDonald's is a place I only go when times are tough, and/or, I'm on a road trip that left before dawn. And when I go there in those times, I'm comforted by certain things - notably, the biscuit breakfast sandwiches. They don't have them in Canada - no one even knows what I mean when I try to describe them as things that you can get at McDonald's.
This weekend I tried to recreate them with my left over biscuits. I cracked eggs into ramekins and added a little shredded cheese that we had on hand. The ramekins are in a pan with about a 1/2 inch of water.
The left over biscuits, separated, spent about 30 seconds in the microwave while the eggs were cooking. I believe I cooked them at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes (they were fully cooked, with a little yellowish yolk).
We added spinach to two of them, though it only superficially made them "healthier." Still, they were really filling and came together easily.
Buttermilk Breakfast Sandwiches
1-2 eggs per person
1-2 biscuits per person
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter ramekins for each of the eggs. Break one egg into each, sprinkle with cheese, salt, and pepper. Place ramekins in a baking dish or pan with a 1/2 inch of water.* Bake for 10-20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Using a fork or knife, coax the cooked eggs out of the ramekins and place on the biscuits.
*This was kind of an experiment. Does it actually make a difference? You tell me.
