The first time I made these biscuit cups, my husband and his assistant basketball coach came in as I was pulling them out of the oven. They loved them! —Debra Carlson, Columbus Junction, Iowa

"I can't wait to make this recipe! I love biscuit cups (I've made Farmhouse Barbecue Biscuits on this website many, many times). The biscuits ARE hard to press into the cups, but if you just slightly roll them out (press into flats with your fingers or a pastry roller) they are easier to place into the cups. And, with this particular recipe, I might even drizzle a little maple syrup over the finished product. Yum! :)"

"This was really good. I am going to try it again with home made biscuits and extra eggs with no potatoes. I left out the garlic and used chives instead. I also used chunked up sausage links since that was all I had on hand. I think I will try some with bacon and pepper jack cheese! I only gave it 4 stars because I am not a fan of canned biscuits:) Thanks for sharing!"

"Easy to put together. Very happy with results. Initially thought jumbo biscuits would be too large for regular muffin pan but it worked! I tripled the batch and did have some filling left over, but that's ok. Someone will get a "breakfast bowl" tomorrow with toast. ;) I doubt there will be any complaints. :)

I used my non stick pampered chef individual square brownie pans. Wish I could share a picture. They look and smell heavenly!"
