During the Holidays when we had family visiting I wanted to make something a little more special for breakfast. These Texas Baked Eggs are super easy but look way more impressive than they are to make. Texas Sized biscuits topped with an egg and sprinkled with shredded cheese, bacon bits, and scallions (I was out of these) are a yummy and filling way to start the day!
Texas Baked Eggs
From The Family Kitchen
Makes 8 servings
1 tube Texas-style refrigerated biscuit dough (the biggest ones)
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 diced scallions
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a standard sized muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray (I realized my muffin tins were too small so I went with individual ramekins instead). Open the tube of biscuit dough and and press one biscuit into eight tins. Make room for the egg by pressing the biscuit all the way up the side of each cup.
Crack an egg into each biscuit then top with bacon bits, cheddar, and scallions. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Bake for 13-15 minutes. Remove the biscuits from the oven as soon as the edged turn golden brown.
