Just three ingredients to make these super simple, protein-packed breakfast biscuits that the whole family will love!
Breakfast can be a struggle, right Mamas? You want to send your kids off with a good, wholesome meal at the beginning of the day, but it can seem like a monumental effort to break out the skillet at 7am.
I hear you. I’m always looking for solutions to the morning dilemma. And these biscuits are my favorite way to fuel up my kids.
Packed with eggs and cheese, they satisfy even the biggest of appetites (for you moms of teenagers!) and take minutes to make. You could even batch-cook a bunch on the weekends, pop them in the fridge, and heat them up throughout the week. BAM–mom win!
I love how easy these come together. Check out this demo I did on Instagram Stories & see for yourself:
So simple, right?! And the beauty is… you can customize them for your family members. Add crumbled sausage or bacon, maybe some chopped veggies, or serve with maple syrup for dipping.
Any way you bake them, they’re perfect for a quick breakfast at home or on-the-go. I love how much protein my kids are getting when they dive into these. Animal protein (eggs, cheese, sausage) is nutrient rich (including zinc, iron, and vitamin B12) and provides the body with more protein per calorie than alternatives. Plus, meat is the only complete food with all Brain Chain Amino Acids that the body needs to build muscle. I also love that it’s a great source of iron, as I sometimes struggle to get this nutrient into my kids’ diets. I know other moms can identify with this!
As important as it is to get my kids started right in the morning, I try to incorporate meat into my breakfast plans as much as possible. Protein is a vitally important part of a balanced diet. It supports physical and cognitive development, and helps us feel fuller longer. That means less snacking and more focus at school. YES.
Plus, a landmark study in Kenya found that supplementing diets with protein from meat and milk can increase physical and cognitive development, and actually improved test scores. That’s the kind of info that gets my attention. It can really make a difference for our kids!
Roll up a few biscuits for morning breakfasts, and watch the kids go for seconds. You’ll love the protein and nutrients they’re getting, and they’ll love a tasty, hot breakfast before school.

This breakfast idea was inspired by the Truth About Food campaign, a discussion promoted by the ENOUGH initiative, and designed to bring awareness to how our food is made and what it takes to feed a global community. ENOUGH is dedicated to addressing misconceptions about food production, and educating consumers on nutrition topics, such as food labels and farming methods. Their studies found that parents want nutritionally-based meals for their families, but found much of the information available to be confusing.
As a resource to parents (as well as anyone else wanting to make educated food decisions), they started the Truth About Food, which provides nutritional info to empower people making the food choices that will impact their families and their communities.
