Breakfast Sandwich Biscuits

Breakfast Sandwich Biscuits - 9

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I savored every moment spent with my family, although the time went by too quickly. Santa was also very good to me this year – I am definitely feeling blessed. However, I also managed to catch a nasty virus, so I’ve been lying around the house the past several days trying to rest as much as possible. Needless to say, I haven’t had much of an appetite…but my favorite sick-day standbys, good old chicken soup and ginger ale, have kept me going. These breakfast sandwiches are also great for when you’re under the weather – they’re the perfect way to get in some protein and carbs to start off the day. I found the dough recipe on The Kitchn, and I like it because it’s an interesting cross between a biscuit and a roll – but also because these biscuit-rolls are fairly quick to make for a recipe that involves yeast. These make a perfectly hearty breakfast with egg, cheese, and bacon, but if you don’t want to make breakfast sandwiches out of all of them, just slather them with some butter or jam – I’m sure Paula would approve!

Adapted from Paula Deen’s Kitchen Classics by Paula Deen.

In a small bowl or measuring cup, sprinkle the yeast over the cup of warm water.

In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, and salt.

Add in the boiling water. Add the egg to the yeast mixture and stir to combine. Add the yeast mixture to the shortening mixture, and then quickly stir in the flour until well-combined. Let sit for 30 minutes. At this point you can refrigerate the mixture until needed, up to 12 hours.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Turn out the dough on to a lightly floured surface and form the dough into a square. Divide the dough in half twice, and then cut each square into pieces.

  6. Awww, man. I woke up late this morning and didn’t have time for a real breakfast. This would really hit the spot right now.

  7. I love this biscuit recipe – might even try it this morning!

  8. Yum. I LOVE breakfast sandwiches. I’d definitely substitute your American cheese with some lovely sharp Cheddar, though, or a slice of melty Swiss.

  12. One of the best breakfasts this time of the year is whatever comes out of your oven in the morning. Lovely biscuits.

  13. Tracy, these biscuits might be Step 2 in my adventures to conquer my fear of yeast.

  16. What a great blog! Can’t wait to try some of your recipes!

  17. We make a cheater version of these sometimes with english muffins and cooking two beaten eggs in a coffee mug in the microwave 😉 Yours look so much classier and more hearty though!

  18. I’m so intrigued by your biscuit-rolls! They look absolutely beautiful–the texture looks top-notch!– and I’m sure they’re amazing. I’m a big lover of the breakfast sandwich, and I know Paula wouldn’t mind slathering a little butter on those babies. 😉

  19. Love these fun breakfast sandwiches, I bet they are to die for!!

  20. LOVE the biscuits – going to have to try them since I get tired of waiting for most yeast recipes to rise. Plus anything with bacon sound wonderful 😀

  21. What a great way to start the morning. Hope you get feeling better soon. Have a wonderful New Year!

  22. Much better than McDonalds

    by Ingrid on Jan 3, 2011 at 8:19 pm

  23. Lovely! My hubby will love these!

    by Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction on Jan 5, 2011 at 5:26 pm

  24. Made these tonight for dinner, they were pretty darn tasty! I rolled out my biscuit dough a little too thin, but as I was still able to cut them apart, I really didn’t mind. How thick would you guess you roll out your dough before cutting the biscuits out? I’d love to have the nice fluffy guys you have in your pictures the next time I make them! Thanks!

    by Rachael on Feb 7, 2011 at 10:36 pm

  25. Rachael – Glad you enjoyed them! I think my dough was probably about an inch to an inch and a half thick when I rolled it out. Good luck! 🙂

  26. and if you wna make this fast try an english muffin, and also try buttering the biscuit or english muffin in helps with texture and keeping the inside soft.

    by Staci on Sep 19, 2011 at 12:37 am
