(Not) Risky Biscuit Breakfast Sandos

I LOVE breakfast, but sometimes it just doesn’t make sense to get up and hit the drive thru.

These (not) Risky Biscuit Sandos are simple, quick and taste almost as good as the golden arches. Plus- it’s always fun to dance around in a Men’s dress shirt circa Tom Cruise, right??

What You Need:

  • pre made biscuits from the refrigerated area of the super market
  • two slices of American cheese, but any cheese will work
  • two eggs
  • thick ham steak, bacon (turkey & veggie also work) or sausage patty (If You Want)
  • hash browns – from the refrigerated area or potatoes that go in the oven
  • a bit of oil
  • rooster sauce
  • salt & pepper
  • butter
  • orange juice, milk or any beverage. Bonus points for champagne & OJ combo
  • paper towels
  • a small skillet or two
  • cookie or baking sheet (non stick)
  • plate, napkin, fork, spatula, glass
  • an oven or toaster oven
  • lots of love

Step By Step (oo baby):

  • LAY OUT ALL OF YOUR INGREDIENTS- I can not stress how important timing is for this one
  • pre heat your oven to 325 degrees
  • if you’re making your hash browns in a pan then pour a little oil and heat on low. dump the bag of potatoes into the skillet and flatten them down into a giant patty, cover with a lid
  • once the oven is hot- slide in the biscuits and set a timer on your i phone
  • now you have a few moments to really get set up, get your cheese slices ready and if you’re using meat – check timing on package. Get that out and put the meat on the plate. Make sure your paper towels are ready for blotting
  • when your biscuits are 10 mins from being done, heat other skillet on low. flip hash browns and re cover them
  • crack two eggs and let them sit in the lightly coated pan, if they don’t look “perfect”- move them around with your spatula to “shape” them. Don’t touch or move them otherwise, until they start to crackle in the pan.
  • Pull two biscuits out of the oven, slice in half and place cheese slices on each. Put back in the oven for 1-2mins. Watch the cheese for bubbling/burning.
  • Pop the meat (if you’re using it) into the microwave.
  • Pour the oj or make the mimosa
  • Flip the eggs. (For eggs over medium- cook eggs until the yolks are almost all pale, with a little dark still in there). Take the meat out and blot on paper towel. Pull biscuits out of the oven. Turn the heat off under the hash browns
  • place the biscuits on the plate and on the dry half, drizzle a small amount of rooster or other hot sauce. then layer with one egg on top
  • Take a small scoop of hash browns and lay them over the cheese side, top that with the meat- if using
  • put another scoop of hash browns on the side of the plate and drizzle with rooster sauce (make a heart or smiley face if you’re feelin’ it).
  • sprinkle each half with salt and pepper then close it up and serve
  • accept kisses and lots of love all day!

Cheater Chicken Noodle Soup

This magic soup will cure any illness* and is perfect for chilly Football days or movie nights at home.

*it won’t but it will make you feel better!

What You Need:

  • a rotissere chicken from your local deli or market
  • a bag of egg noodles
  • a couple cans of chicken noodle soup or a large container of broth from your local deli or market, with most of the noodles and chicken strained- we’re looking for the liquid.
  • a quarter stick of butter
  • salt and pepper
  • crackers or bread
  • a pot with either a top or a strainer
  • a bowl
  • a fork
  • a ladle or big spoon
  • lots o love!

Step by Step (ooo baby):

  • set out all your stuff
  • fill the pot a little over half way with water and turn the heat on high , add a dash of salt
  • while you’re waiting for it to boil, take your fork and shred the breast meat off of the chicken into decent sized chunks
  • now your water is boiling? cool- time to add the noodles- I use about half the bag. Oh and maybe turn down the heat so the water doesn’t boil over.
  • stir the noodles about every min for around 7 mins or until they are soft but not mushy
  • strain the water out of the pot with your lid or dump the noodles in the strainer and shake it a few times
  • turn your heat to low and add the noodles back in- with a big chunk of the butter and stir till the butter coats the noodles
  • add the broth and chicken and stir over low heat until it’s all warm.
  • serve with crackers and accept praise!
  • MOST IMPORTANT STEP: while they slurp it down- shred or take the rest of the chicken off and store it in tupperware or on a plate with foil in the fridge. then throw away the chicken box and the deli soup container/cans, wrap up and store the noodles.

It’s our little secret, right??

MAKE IT VEG:

Swap chicken for tofu or chickn’, and use veggie broth in place of chicken. Throw in some cooked carrots to add more substance if you like.
