The idea of an egg in a biscuit was almost sacriledge to this Southern boy, but I'm glad I overcame that feeling. These biscuits are tender and moist. They hold up great for several hours. Perfect for make ahead parties.

This is a great tasting biscuit. I found using parchment paper lining on a cookie sheet was the only way to keep them from sticking. They just lift up effortlessly!Look for it in the grocery section with the aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc.
