Little known fact: John and I *almost* considered serving breakfast at our wedding reception. Even though I was super happy with our taco truck, breakfast would have been a delightful choice too. My love for breakfast is pretty monumental but I don’t eat it on a daily basis. A lot of things contribute to me not eating breakfast in the morning and it’s mainly because I don’t wake up early enough to prepare anything. I marvel at those folks who are able to just wake up, eat breakfast and get their day started. I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but I struggle getting around to eating it. Lucky for me, it’s cheesy breakfast biscuits to the rescue.
The weekends are much easier for me to navigate through breakfast. Whether it’s preparing it at home or heading out to one of our favorite breakfast spots, the weekends are just simpler. I recently came across an article on PopSugar about easy grab and go breakfast foods you can make yourself; I’m hoping to try some of these very soon.
OK, enough about my inability to eat breakfast during the week. I love biscuits but I have a huge secret. Until recently, I’d never, ever made a biscuit from scratch. It wasn’t because I didn’t think I could follow a recipe, of course, I can. I just didn’t want to deal with the time and in my opinion, drama, that went into it. Flouring the surface, kneading dough – it just all seemed so tiring, therefore, I didn’t bother. When I decided I wanted to tackle the daunting task of biscuit making, I put my big girl pants apron on and got to work. Not to brag or anything [insert brag] but I can’t believe I waited so long to make homemade biscuits – these were so good. I used Chrissy Teigen’s biscuit recipe as a guide but added my own flare to it. You can enjoy these breakfast biscuits on their own or you can make a meal out of it. A good breakfast biscuit should always have a protein and something cheesy to bond it all together.
