Reviews for Breakfast Biscuit Cups
"I love having something in the freezer that we can grab, warm up and eat on the go. These are perfect for that on the go breakfast or add to an brunch menu!"
"I did not care for this. Taste is okay,but not really a good to go idea."
"made these this morning! so easy! had a wonderful taste! family loved them!"
"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! :)"
"These are awesome and a real meal in one - very good"
"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!"
"Thanks BTinker for making my morning. I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face. I've been cooking and baking for the past 53 years and I must also be dumber then a box of rocks because to my knowledge a muffin tin and a cupcake tin are indeed the same thing. I can't wait to try these tasty sounding breakfast muffins, cupcakes. I think making them with either the refrigerated flaky biscuits or the crescent rolls would both work and taste just fine. I love the fact this recipe can be altered to suit any families taste and can see how much fun it would also be to let the kids help assemble them as well. Thanks for adding to my favorite recipes file."
"Has anyone ever made these in bulk and froze them to use for a few weeks or a months worth of breakfast's?! I'd love o do that as long as they'd still be good for that length of time...please advise! Thank you... :o)"
"What is the difference between a muffin and cupcake pan? Is it the size?"
"I've made theses often for my daughter, she loves them. I've made them with bacon, ham and sausage before, sometimes all three. I use refrigerated hash browns instead of frozen.Very good...There also good for freezing and taking out the next morning for a quick breakfast for kids. Thanks for sharing"
"I guess I'm dumber than a box of rocks because in all my years I didn't know there is a difference between a muffin pan and a cupcake pan, I've always thought it was interchangeable.The recipe sounds delicious and easy to make. I will be trying it."
"These look like they were baked in a MUFFIN tin not a CUPCAKE tin. Big difference. In any event, stop the whining and thank the good Lord you have the means available to you to have this kind of food."
"I use cresent rolls, easier to make a cup and I add more eggs. I vary using diced ham, cooked bacon or crumbled sausage, add chopped red pepper, green onion and a tsp of dijon mustard to egg mixture and milk and save a step by not making gravy. do not overcooke the egg mixture it will finishing cooking in the oven. Yummy breakfast !"
"I think these would be better if you tried the Bisquick biscuit recipe with them and just poured it in they actually have a recipe like that's on their site"
"I made these with the help of my 2 grandsons. It was a Sunday morning treat. However, used no flour, no biscuit! I add finely chopped sweet onions and a bit of extra cheese. Topped with some mild salsa and served with toast. My batch made 24 muffins and they literally disappeared! Less time consuming also, breakfast was ready in 30 minutes! Yum!!"
"These were so good! They were time consuming to make but they were delicious!"
"These are a bit labor intensive (lots of steps) but not that hard to make. Next time, I'll try small biscuits. Going by the count and weight, it led me to Grands but using those made these pretty "bready". The ratio of bread to filling was off so next time, I'll try regular sized biscuits and probably make more of them and will need to adjust the baking time some, too but otherwise, we did like these! Oh and one other thing, trying to get those biscuits into the cups took me the most time. They kept springing back. Most annoying!"
"These are so good! I added onion, garlic & green chili's. They were a hit with my group!"
"These biscuit cups were a smash with my whole Christmas crowd!!! We had family visiting for the holidays so I wanted something different to try, these did the trick! But they were a little messy."
"These are great!!! My daughter could not stop raving about them. They were a bit messy but tasted sssooo good."
"I haven't tried this yet but will. bbeese, maybe it's the size of the muffin cup that gave you a problem. Sounds like you'd need a large cup to hold all the filling. Maybe try halving the biscuits for a smaller muffin cup. Just an idea."
"I don't mean to be a recipe buzz-kill, but this recipe is nothing but a mess! The biscuit consume most of the muffin cup, barely leaving any room for the ingredients. Sorry - - just my opinion..."
"My husband has fallen in love with these little gems."
"I make this all the time. It freezes well and tastes just as good later."
"These are great, especially if you need to get out the door in a hurry in the morning. I tripled the recipe and froze the extra cups. They tasted great after warming in the microwave. I would suggest shredded hashbrowns instead of cubed."
"I doubled this recipe but next time I will triple it because my family loved it so much."
"Wonderful recipe! Reheats well too!"
"Wonderful recipe. I take the biscuits and pull them apart into two. There was a little to much biscuit for my family. I also added some sausage gravy I had left over. My family loved them."
"This was a great after school snack for my son!"
"Very good recipe but second time around I changed a few things. The bisquits were to thick so I separated one into two and added more gravy. Perfect my husband said! This is a staple now."
"This is a Great recipe. It does take alittle time to assemble, but very much worth the effort. I made 2 batches so there is many fast breakfasts to come. They do reheat perfectly."
"We made these on a family vacation. Now my husband is requesting them for his birthday breakfast. So definitely a keeper."
"These were phenomenal! I accidentally got the buttermilk instead of flaky biscuits, and used the Jimmy Dean roll sausage and shredded cheddar. They had tons of flavor. This is definitely going into my recipe box. And, I made them the day before--they reheated great in the microwave for about a minute."
"Very good. The only thing my husband would have liked more of is the gravy. Which isn't hard to do. Will definately be making this again!!!"
"I make these on Sunday and then pop them in the microwave at work all week. Surprisingly filling but not at all heavy! I use turkey sausage and reduced fat biscuits and a little garlic salt in the egg/ potato mix."
"This was wonderful. Just starting to get cool here in east texas so it was a great way to start fall."
"I made these the first time without the recipe in front of me and left out all the milk and flour. They were still very good, but will try it again using all of the recipe."
"These are excellent. Made exactly as directed. My kids asked me to make 2 batches next time. Oh, and they reheated in microwave really well!"
"This was tasty! It is perfect size for children and elderly people. Since it takes 1/3 sausage I just go ahead and triple the recipe and made more. I take them to elderly people who do not get to eat much breakfast, and they love them!"
"This was really good! They are also just the right size for kids and elderly people. Since it uses 1/3 of the sausage, I just tripble the recipe and make more. Enjoy!"
"Tasted good, but more work than I would have liked - seems like cooking 3 separate meals with cooking the sausage, then the eggs, then baking it all."
"Loved them! My whole family did, actually. They only took about 15 min. in my oven, but my oven is like that."
"These were a big hit with my family! They did take about 30 minutes to prepare, but it was easy. I used cheddar cheese, since that's what I had on hand, and it was just fine. Next time I plan to make a double batch and freeze some!"
