Omelet Biscuit Cups

My husband's a busy farmer and sometimes eats his breakfast on the run. He's able to take these omelet biscuit cups with him in his truck or tractor cab.

    I can't begin to count the number of times I've made this and every time I serve it to guests they ask for the recipe. I've made tons of variations, using sausage, fresh mushrooms, green pepper and onion or Canadian bacon, swiss and green onion or even used leftover taco meat, a mix of cheddar & Monterey Pepper Jack cheeses, tomato and onion.

    I made this recipe for our family when it first came out in the Taste of Home magizine. I searched through all the pages of breakfast recipes to find it again. We really enjoy them and they freeze well too!
