Breakfast Biscuits, Take 2!

A few weeks ago I copied Picky-Palate and had my own twist on her cheesy bacon pull-aparts (I used tri-tip), I did it again this week.

Chorizo, egg and pimento cheese breakfast biscuits.

The pimento cheese started with buying pimentos for our Paella on Friday night. Since then, I have eaten it every day. So since I already had some made, why not include it in the biscuits. That with eggs, chorizo and sauteed onion, YUM!

 

Biscuits:

2 C flour

2 t baking powder

pinch salt

4 T shortening or butter

3/4 C milk

Mix flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening. Add milk and knead for a minute. Divide the dough and place in a muffin tin. I use a 6 cup jumbo muffin tin and spread the dough across the bottom. Add a small layer of pimento cheese and the cooked chorizo and onions; pour in a little of the egg mixture (4 whisked eggs are enough) and top with more pimento cheese. Cook at 400 for 20 minutes.

Egg Sammich

I haven’t been ignoring you guys, I promise. I’ve been super busy and will have a secret to share very soon… in the meantime, I discovered something new today: Pimento Cheese and Egg Sandwich on a thin everything bagel…

It was delicious. Unfortunately I ate it before I could take a picture.

Pimento Cheese:

1 C shredded sharp cheddar

1 C shredded jack

4 oz cream cheese

1/2 C mayonaise

Salt, pepper, garlic powder

3 spoonfuls pimentos

Spread the pimento cheese on a toasted thin everything bagel and top with an egg cooked over easy. I ate mine as two open faced sandwiches.


Backyard Bowls, who??

I’ve recently become obsessive with Backyard Bowls. To the point where I am sometimes late to work because I need to stop and fill my belly with the yummy goodness that you get. Well, for the past couple of mornings, I have been doing my own version. Because I am leery as of how long this will last (me doing it on my own, and all), I will keep BB’s number on speed dial – especially on mornings when I am already running late (which is most mornings).

I wasn’t supposed to blog today, but I’ve been behind and I just saw this. Me posting as opposed to not posting will hopefully bring in more donations 🙂 Please donate. They have exceeded their goal, but as always, every little bit helps.


St Patrick and the Cutest Little Danish Girl We Know!

I was too sick to go to work today… I was however, not to sick to bake cupcakes with my 3 year old Danish neighbor Elvira (who, by the way, is one of the cutest kids ever! We will definitely be sad when she heads back to Denmark in a week). So after resting up all morning, I decided to make St Patrick’s Day cupcakes to have after the corned beef and cabbage sandwiches we had for lunch.

 

Some days it is just impossible to not eat something… March 17th is one of those days for me.


Food Inspiration 2

If I had a bakery, I’d want it to look like this.

Mini cupcakes on a stick? Sure!

Marmalade? Mmmmmm

I think my next purchase should be a scale


Anatomy of a Cupcake

Why can’t I think of things like this? SO cute!
