If you house is anything like mine, the morning time rush can get pretty crazy. More often than I care to admit but we eat breakfast on the go and in the car. I came across this great recipe on Pillsbury.com for a Breakfast Quiche to Go that seemed like a great option for those moments. Our recipe ended up being completely different than the one on their site, but they were a great inspiration and we were really happy how it turned out! This easy to follow recipe is easy for any little chef to do.
Here are the ingredients: 6 eggs, Turkey Sausage Crumbles, ¾ cup of Milk, 1 can of refrigerated biscuits, ½ cup of cheese, salt & pepper.
Try opening your biscuits with a wooden spoon.
It may be hard at first… This is where you may need to step in and help
I’ve always loved to hear the “pop” of an open biscuit can…
Lay out the uncooked biscuits on a flat area. Each biscuit will have a split in the middle. Find the split and pull each biscuit apart.
One package of biscuits should make about 16 half biscuits. You should only need about 12 half biscuits for the muffin pan. Use the extra for practice in case you mess a couple up.
Use your fingers and gently spread and flatten each half biscuits but be careful…
… not to spread to wide or it may look like this (this is when you can use the extra biscuits)
Place each flattened half biscuit in the muffin pan so that it covers each hole an may spill out on the sides. Once you have filled all the holes, place to the side.
In a mixing bowl, crack your eggs. You may need to help if your little chef hasn’t quite mastered the art of the egg.
Then add Salt and Pepper to taste.
SOUS CHEF MOMMY TIP:Put a little salt and pepper in your little chef’s hand and let them sprinkle it in the dish.
Pour in the milk
Then beat your eggs. If you don’t have an egg beater, then a fork may help. I teach my little chef that “beating” eggs is more like chopping. It made more sense to him.
Then add cheese to you mixture. For us, it was easier to mix in after the eggs were beaten.
Add you sausage crumbles to the bottom of the half biscuits in the muffin pan. We liked “pre-crumbled, pre-cooked” turkey sausage as a short cut, but feel free to cook your favorite breakfast sausage and cut it up yourself.
Next, pour in your egg mixture
Place in the oven at 400 degrees and cook for 15-20 mins or until biscuits are golden brown.
My little chef was quite proud how the breakfast muffins turned out.
Yummmm! Store and reheat in the microwave for your breakfast on the go!
