Baking Adventure

Using Pinterest has piqued my interest in muffin tins and their uses beyond cupcakes and blueberry muffins :)

The other day, Harris Teeter had a "meal deal" that included orange juice, sausage, eggs, and refrigerator biscuit dough for $5 or $6 total.  I decided to try my hand at some breakfast muffin tin magic. 

You need to separate the layers of your biscuit dough about 3/4 of the way down, and then line the muffin tins.  Then, stab with a fork several times.  They'll still rise a lot.  Then I mixed 2 eggs (yes, just 2), 2 T of milk, 2T chopped red bell pepper, 1T chopped parsley and salt and pepper.  In each "cup" I sprinkled in a few pieces of chopped turkey lunchmeat and 1 piece round of cheesestick (they were the right size!) and then topped it off with 1/12th of the egg mixture.  It's not a lot of egg, but both the baked egg and the biscuit fluff up when you bake! These are yummy warm and also reheat nicely in the microwave.  Definitely put a baking sheet underneath, though, because if you fill the cups too much the egg will bake out.
