Chick in a Biscuit

Chick in a Biscuit

Credit for this recipe goes to my hubby! He totally came up with the idea of baking a hard boiled egg into a savory breakfast biscuit! What my hubby didn't know was that a handful of other cooks came up with the same idea! But it was a very small handful! This was absolutely delicious no matter who invented it first! The biscuit has the perfect texture of moist and crumbly but not too much of each! And the flavor of the biscuit is also perfect...savory with a slight hint of cheddar cheese, green onion and bacon. The hard boiled egg inside is such a nice surprise to anyone who doesn't know that it's in there! This is a great 'grab and go' breakfast. These breakfast biscuits are a nice size because I used large eggs and baked these biscuits in large muffin cups. It's also VERY easy to make! I actually served these for dinner because I love to serve breakfast for dinner once a week!  I'll be making this every week for a very long time! Such a hearty yummy meal!

6 large hard boiled eggs, peeled
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 Tbls. sugar
2/3 cup melted butter
1 1/3 cups milk - can use low fat
2 green onions chopped fine
3 Tbls. real bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Grease 6 large muffin cups (6 oz. size ea.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients.
Then add in all the remaining ingredients, except the hard boiled eggs, of course.
Put about 3 Tbls. of the biscuit batter into each muffin cup.
Then place a peeled hard boiled egg on top in each cup, lightly pushing down on the egg.
Then add enough batter to each cup to just slightly cover each egg, but filling the cup.
Bake on center rack uncovered for 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
Remove from oven and allow to cool until able to handle.
Then gently wiggle the biscuit back and forth in the cup to loosen and remove.
Serve warm.
