Just three ingredients to make these super simple, protein-packed breakfast biscuits that the whole family will love! These 3 Ingredient Breakfast Biscuits can be made ahead of time for a quick breakfast all week long.
3 Ingredient Breakfast
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.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THIS 3 INGREDIENT BREAKFAST:
- 1 canned, biscuit dough
- 6 eggs, scrambled
- 2 cups, shredded cheddar cheese
- Optional: 1 cup, cooked sausage or bacon crumbles
- Maple syrup, for topping
DIRECTIONS TO MAKE THIS 3 INGREDIENT BREAKFAST:
- Preheat oven to temperature based on biscuit packaging.
- Using a rolling pin, roll out biscuits into larger, flat circles.
- Add 1/4 cup each of egg and cheese to the middle of the biscuit.
- Roll up edges and pinch together.
- Flip the biscuit so the edges are down, and lay on a prepared baking sheet.
- Repeat steps with remaining biscuits.
- Bake biscuits for 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool, and enjoy with a drizzle of maple syrup!
- **Can be refrigerated for 3-5 days
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!
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.
I love how easy these come together. Check out this demo I did on Instagram Stories & see for yourself:
TOOLS TO HELP MAKE 3 INGREDIENT BREAKFAST RECIPES EVEN EASIER:
nonstick baking mats – reusable, fits pans easily and easy to clean up!
nonstick rolling pin – no need to worry about biscuits sticking when rolling them out.
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. 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are breakfast biscuits?
Basically just a biscuit that you fill with ingredients you eat at breakfast time! Whatever you like in an omelette, you can add to the biscuits.
Can you make biscuit dough ahead of time?
Short answer…no. Easy 3 ingredient breakfast recipes are just that, easy. If you make them with the refrigerator biscuit dough then you don’t need to worry about preparing the dough!
What are breakfast recipe ingredients to have on hand?
These can simply be made with eggs and cheese, which is usually in every person’s refrigerator. Refrigerator biscuits have a pretty long shelf life, so it is easy to keep those on hand without worrying about them going bad. Also, there are plenty of options nowadays for precooked sausage and bacon crumbles to keep stocked at home as well.
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.
