Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.
-Alan D. Wolflet
Everyone deserves a little love on Valentine’s Day right? And if you aren’t sure how to show your person how you feel about them, why not do it with a delicious meal/treat!?!
While Ryan and I don’t really do the whole flowers/gifts/dinner thing on February 14th, we do usually celebrate our own way….with breakfast.
Last year, I woke up early and grabbed us heart shaped chicken biscuits from Chick-fil-a, but this year I wanted to do something different. We have been dating long enough for me to know the way to his heart and that is through his stomach.
He loves all things breakfast food/sweets so I decided to make the ULTIMATE cheesy breakfast biscuit for him this Valentine’s Day. If you have a significant other (or even a friend) that loves breakfast food, you will definitely want to make them this biscuit on February 14th. It is easy to make & you will look like you spent the entire morning slaving away in the kitchen…when it really only took you 15 minutes to make!
How to make this Cheesy Breakfast Biscuit:
Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.
Next pull out a biscuit.
Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut the biscuit and remove excess dough.
Place the biscuit on a non-stick baking sheet & cook for 10-12 minutes until your biscuit is golden brown.
PRO TIP: You can use a canned biscuit or homemade. If you only need to use 1-2 of your canned biscuits but more come in a pack, simply place the uncooked biscuits in a ziplock bag with a little squirt of water to keep them moist. They cook exactly the same & don’t go to waste!!
While your biscuit is in the oven, it is time to get together the other parts of the sandwich.
To do this, slice 1 piece of bacon in half and cook it in a non-stick frying pan until crispy.
Slice one thick piece of tomato & get your cheese/egg out of the refrigerator.
When your biscuit is ready, remove it from the oven.
Cut or pull your biscuit in half & place the bottom back on to the baking sheet. Place a generous amount of cheese on top of the biscuit & put it back in the oven to melt.
While your biscuit is back in the oven, it is time to cook your egg.
To do this, crack an egg into the frying pan you used for your bacon. (I didn’t wipe off my frying pan, instead I used the bacon grease instead of butter to fry the egg).
Cook the egg on medium heat until the whites begin to show. Crack salt and pepper over the egg then place a lid over the frying pan to finish frying.
To assemble your biscuit: place your tomato slice on top of the melted cheese followed by your bacon.
When your egg is finished frying, carefully remove it from the frying pan and place it on top of your bacon.
Crack additional pepper on top for taste, serve & enjoy!
Is there anything more appealing than that yolk flow?
Whether you make this cheesy breakfast biscuit for yourself (because you deserve it) or for your favorite guy/gal, you won’t regret it!
While this only shows the ingredients needed for one biscuit, just multiple all ingredients by the amount of people you are making breakfast for to create even more cheesy biscuits!
- 1 flaky biscuit, either canned or homemade
- 1 large egg
- 1 slice bacon, cut in half
- 1 slice tomato
- 1 1/2 tbsp cheese, of choice (i used a Mexican blend)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- non-stick frying pan
- non-stick baking sheet
- heart shaped cookie cutter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Unwrap biscuit (either from a can or homemade). Using your heart shaped cookie cutter, cut the shape into your biscuit.
Place biscuit on non-stick baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
While the biscuit is in the oven, cut bacon in half and cook on medium heat in an non-stick pan for 4-5 minutes on each side until crispy.
Next, slice tomato and set aside.
When biscuit is ready, remove from the oven. Cut biscuit in half and sprinkle cheese over the bottom half. Place biscuit back in oven for 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted.
When you place the biscuit back in the oven it is time to cook your egg. Crack egg into the frying pan over medium heat. (I did not wipe off the pan, I utilized the bacon grease to cook the egg instead of using butter).
Sprinkle salt and pepper over egg, lower heat and cover for 2-3 minutes until egg is cooked to desire.
Now it is time to assemble your breakfast biscuit.
To do this, place the tomato slice onto the cheesy biscuit bottom. Top with bacon and finally your fried egg.
Add more salt/pepper if desired. Serve & enjoy!
