I just made these up today. I would have had 35 but two of them were a little tough – the last two I rolled out. I got 33, which is still not too bad. Only 29 of them are sausage egg & cheese…I got shorted 1 sausage patty in a bag that was supposed to be 30 lol, two were egg & cheese only and two were sausage & egg only. It only took me an hour and a half from the time I started the biscuits until I got them all in the freezer. Probably could have cut the time by about 15-20 mins had I thought to put the eggs in the oven with the biscuits.
First I made the biscuits using this recipe. Only change I made was I baked them right away rather than freezing them for future use. I got exactly 35 biscuits using a drinking glass (about 3″ wide).
Then I cooked the egg. I scrambled 7 eggs at a time (two batches) with a little bit of salt, pepper, &water and poured them into a large cake pan sprayed with cooking spray. I didn’t want to use a cookie sheet because mine are uneven & all the egg would have pooled in the middle. I baked the eggs at 425* for 6 minutes.
While the eggs were cooking, I split the biscuits & laid out the cheese. I only used 1/4 of a slice of Kraft cheese slices per biscuit because that was nearly perfect for the size of the biscuits and I don’t like a lot of american cheese. Plus I only had 7 slices of cheese thawed.
Then I put the tops on the biscuits and wrapped each one individually with plastic wrap. Then I placed them in the freezer on a cookie sheet so they can freeze without getting crumbled/mashed together. Once they are frozen, I will put them in freezer bags.
When we are ready to use these, I know I have to microwave them for at least 30 seconds because that’s how long the sausage is to cook. I’m thinking probably 45seconds per biscuit will be sufficient. These are excellent for quick breakfasts on those rushed school mornings 🙂
