I was debating whether or not to do a “Tuesday Breakfast Tutorial” today because my poor hubs had to go to work this morning and take a class on hydrolical things or something like that. But then I thought “What the hey?” and decided to write about what we eat when he has to go to work before the sun rises. Have I mentioned how much I adore this hardworking man?!

So buttermilk biscuit sandwiches are one of my favorite early morning recipes because they’re quick, delish, and don’t get many dishes dirty for me to wash afterwards (we are currently in dishwasher purgatory).

For the buttermilk biscuits, I like to use a baking mix. I have made biscuits from scratch, however they are kind of a pain in the tuckus and these ones taste just as good. And they’re like a bazillion times better than the kind that come in a can. Although that can is fun to open. I like to use Pioneer Brand baking mix because it has a cool looking box.

Here’s my biscuit secret: I use one half buttermilk and one half normal milk. Then I just knead it a few times and cut the dough into circles with the lid of a cup, and throw em in the oven for a few minutes until they’re golden.

While the Biscuits are Baking… Ok, this is where the corner-cutting really starts.

I spray some oil in a mug, crack an egg in it, whip it up with a fork and pop it in the mic for 60 seconds. (thanks for the great Chicago mug Aunt Erika… It gets put to good use!)

TA-DA! I now have the perfect biscuit-shaped-egg.

This part is a trick I just learnt from my friend Claressa last week. I just take a piece or two of bacon, cover it with a paper towel and put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. Magically, it turns into crisp bacon.

By now the biscuits are perfectly golden.

I just put a little butter on them and the layer the bacon, egg, and a slice of American cheese and send my cowboy off to work with a warm hearty breakfast to eat.

As you can tell, we take breakfast very seriously in our house. If you have any good breakfast ideas, please share! I am always looking for new ideas.Thanks!

All my love,
