It’s back to school time! That translates to: hurry with your homework, so we aren’t late for scouts, orchestra, school meetings, OT appointments, soccer, and wait, DINNER! I love sitting down to eat as a family, but sometimes that’s just not possible. It times like those that I love the egg biscuits!
I’ve even tossed one out the door at a child who “didn’t have time to eat!”
The egg biscuit is a complete package, so I still feel good when that is their only dinner. Plus, they taste darn good! We’ll also have them for breakfast when we have company, because they look like a lot of effort happened, when actually, it’s pretty easy! It’s also easily doubled for more people!
This is another wonderful recipe that is easily adaptable to peoples tastes. My daughter doesn’t want meat, my husband wants everything plus salsa, and the baby likes extra cheese. Done in seconds!
