How to Make Stuffed Breakfast Balls
Stuffed Breakfast Balls
OMG - These are a LIFE SAVER for me!!
My Hubby leaves the house before dawn every morning for work. I want him to have a good hot breakfast, but don't want to have to get up to make it every day. One weekend when I was making this HUGH breakfast for us to feast on I had tons of leftovers and didn't want to throw them out so I came up with these little gems. Stuffed Breakfast Balls are all those goodies stuffed inside a piece of biscuit and then baked to gooey deliciousness.
They freeze wonderfully and then all Hubby has to do is to pop one or two into the microwave for a few seconds and BAM - he has a hot breakfast and I get to sleep in... Now WHAT could be better!!
Use your imagination, ingredients can be ANYTHING that you and your family enjoy eating. Just to get you started, here is what I used to make mine. I just scrambled up a HUGH amount of eggs, sausage, hash browns, and made some sausage gravy for our Sunday brunch and saved the leftovers afterwards. Basically I used:
1/4 cup milk
1/2 stick butter
2 cups hash browns (cooked if they are leftovers or frozen is fine too)
1 lb. Crumbled Sausage, or Bacon, or Diced Ham or combo of any of these
1 Cup Cheese - either sandwich sliced or shredded is also fine
2 - 3 cans prepared biscuit dough (the cheap 4 packs are what I used)
1/2 medium Onion - Chopped (optional)
1/2 Green Pepper - Chopped (optional)
For the purpose of this article, I'm going to assume that the ingredients have NOT already been cooked. If previously cooked, please skip down to the assembly instructions and we will meet you there.
Add butter to a skillet and once melted throw your onions and green peppers in and begin to saute them until the onions are slightly transparent.
In a bowl, add your eggs with a splash of milk along with some salt and pepper to taste and mix them up.
Then add them to the skillet and stir cook them until scrambled and no longer wet looking. When done, place in a clean large mixing bowl and set aside.
Next in the same pan fry up your sausage or bacon or diced ham until done - drain and add to your eggs in the mixing bowl.
Add in your hash browns to the bowl and mix well.
Assembling Your Stuffed Biscuit Balls
Now using the palm of your hand or a rolling pin, pat or roll each biscuit flat - go ahead and make them about 2 1/2 to 3 times their original size... they'll puff up later.
Place 1/4 slice of cheese in the center of the biscuit (or about a teaspoon or pinch of the shredded).
Now take a good sized scoop (I did about a heaping tablespoon) of your egg/meat/hash brown mixture and place that on top of your cheese.
It's OK if it is falling to the edges - it won't matter.
Next, start pulling the edges to the center and pinching them off to seal them - making a ball.
Place your Stuffed Biscuit Balls seam side down on a greased cookie sheet.
NOTE: (You can also line the pan with parchment paper if you would like.)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and bake for about 8-10 minutes (I started to check on mine after 8 minutes). You want to let them bake until nice and toasty brown on top.
After removing from oven, brush with melted butter and allow to cool completely if making for later.
Once completely cooled, place in a large zip lock freezer bag and place in freezer.
Stuffed Breakfast Buiscuits
My Hubby calls these his morning Yum-Yums and absolutely LOVES them plain, or with sausage gravy poured over a couple of them.
They are so versatile you can actually make these using just about any breakfast items... believe me, I've done it! lol
