Southern Cookin' Makes You Good Lookin'

Random Rantings about Food and Such

Biscuit Breakfast Bowls

on 11/16/2011

Has it sunk in yet that, this time next week, we’ll be cooking Thanksgiving dishes in preparation for the next day?!?  Yowza!  Where has the time gone?  Well, this ol’ cook is making a list and needs to check it twice but the kitchen is getting ready to be naughty and nice for the next month.

Yesterday our little chef Ashley made the most fantabulous breakfast (which i am trying to get her to blog!), so i guess you can say she inspired me this morning.  After seeing some food blogs with cookie bowls, my twisted mind went to breakfast via the biscuit route (because i was thinking that would be a cool way to do strawberry shortcake–which i LOVE with biscuits.)  So this morning, using the idea of shaping a bowl using the bottom end of a muffin tin, biscuit bowls were created.

Biscuit Bowls

You’ll see how we had ours but the possibilities are enormous!  Can’t you imagine treating your family to a biscuit bowl buffet on Black Friday or Christmas morning?  How cool would that be?!  You could have a variety of breakfast meats, scrambled eggs, assorted veggies like peppers/onions/tomatoes, a choice of cheeses, grits, gravy,….and so on and so on!  And throw in some syrup and jam for those who want to add a little sweetness to the  mix.

Now i need to get my carcass up and work off my biscuit bowl.  ;0)

Buttermilk Biscuit Dough (the same dough i normally use for biscuits)

Self-rising flour, oil and buttermilk

2 cups self-rising flour

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup oil

Mix ingredients together until dough is formed.

Using a standard sized muffin tin (although mini-muffin-sized would be cool to try!), grease the bottom of the muffin pan.  Shape a handful of dough around the muffin cup.  Try to make the top, in this case, flat so that it will sit well later.

Bake in a 400 degree oven until done, around 7–8 minutes.

Eggs and ham

Cheese Grits

Fill with ingredients.  We had scrambled eggs with ham and grits with Swiss cheese.  Wish we’d had gravy! ha
