Ingredients
  

  • 1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 8 eggs scrambled
  • 8 pieces of sliced cheese (cheddar and provolone both work well)
  • Avocado puree optional
  • Spinach or other veggies optional
  • Salsa optional

Instructions
 

  • Bake your biscuits according to the directions, then set aside to cool a bit.
  • While the biscuits bake, scramble up 8 eggs in a large frying pan. If you are adding chopped veggies, you can add them to the eggs as you scramble them.
  • Once the eggs are cooked and biscuits are out of the oven, slice the biscuits horizontally in half.
  • On the bottom half of the biscuit, start building your sandwich.
  • I like the eggs on the bottom, any spreads (avocado puree, hot sauce, etc) shmeared on the top, then topped off with a piece of cheese.
  • Put the sandwiches back together and wrap well in foil if freezing for later. If enjoying immediately, wrap in foil and pop in oven for a minute to melt cheese.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

To reheat the sandwiches:  Leave wrapped in foil and pop into a 350 degrees oven for about 10 minutes or take out of the foil and microwave for about 1 minute.
Note: these times are approximate based on the temp of your oven and strength of your microwave.
If you want to substitute the type of cheese you use, feel free.  Just be sure it melts well.  I like provolone slices, cheddar slices and sometimes even regular american cheese.
