You can try to freeze it but it doesn’t really hold up very well in the freezer, just FYI! But hey, anything is possible.

The prep time is longer than most, but hey, every minute you put in on a Sunday afternoon will come right back to you Monday morning when you have the most epic breakfast sandwich before heading into work.

No more growling stomachs during those meetings because you will be on that biscuit high.

Oh-so-warm, flaky buttermilk biscuits with eggs, bacon and cheese. Store in the fridge and reheat in the morning!

30 minutes30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 12 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 12 slices sharp cheddar cheese

For the buttermilk biscuits

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add cold butter, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir using a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
  3. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 1 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut out 10-12 rounds using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter. Place biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Place into oven and bake for 14-16 minutes, or until golden brown; set aside.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  6. Place bacon in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until almost crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; cut in half crosswise and set aside.
  7. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add eggs and cook, stirring gently using a silicone or heat-proof spatula, until they just begin to set; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 4-6 minutes.
  8. Split biscuits; top with cheese, eggs and bacon, and then cover with another biscuit top to create a sandwich. Repeat with remaining biscuits to make 12 sandwiches. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.
  9. To reheat, remove plastic wrap from the sandwich and wrap in a paper towel. Place into microwave for 1 minute, or until heated through completely.
  10. Serve immediately.

    Very good and great way to start out the day. Used sausage patties instead of bacon and came out great.

    Chungah – Haven’t tried these yet but they look fantastic. I know you don’t recommend freezing them. If I make only the biscuits, will they be OK frozen? (I’m wondering if it’s the filling that makes them less than great when frozen.) Thanks!!

    used just the biscuit portion of the recipe. it was super easy and my biscuits were really delicious. will definitely use this biscuit recipe again… it’s practically fool proof! 

  5. Damn Delicious for sure. I can’t wait to try this recipe with my boyfriend. He gets excited when I go through all the different recipes you have online. We’ve tried a few others and they are damn delicious. No doubt that these biscuits are going to be amazing. Thanks for your amazing recipes during quarantine. I will continue making many others from here. I wish the site had an area to upload photos.

    My elderly parents loved them, they said they were better than McDonalds.

  7. How well do you think the biscuit recipe would halve? I live alone & don’t have a ton of freezer space.

    These look amazing, thank you! Will try them for the girls in the morning before school next week.

  11. Do you scramble the eggs so they’re chunky or are they set and then you slice pieces for the biscuits ?
    Love your recipes! More IP please!

    The sandwiches turned out so good!  I used prepackaged 
    Biscuits and baked my eggs.  Thank you!

  13. Oh em gee! These look so yummy! They’d be perfect for a brunch picnic. Great recipe!

    How important is it to wrap in plastic? Is a tightly sealed container ok? Trying to reduce my plastic consumption.

    Love ALL the recipes I try from your blog!

    Chungah,
    I made the biscuits and my husband says they are really good. (I’m making the rest now.) That is a compliment to me because my made from scratch biscuits usually suck. Lol. He said to keep making your biscuit recipes because he likes your cheddar bacon pepper ones also and they appear on the dinner table here regularly. This recipe showed up in my email at the perfect time because I have been making a bunch of make-ahead style breakfast sandwiches my kids to grab and go on busy school mornings. Can I ask why you don’t recommend not freezing them?
    Thanks!!

    • Hi Nicolette! We are so glad to hear your entire family is enjoying these!

      You can certainly try and freeze these but they just don’t hold up as well which is why we don’t recommend it. I hope that answers your question!
