About these stuffed breakfast biscuits
Like a hot, made-from-scratch breakfast but you’re a little short on time in the morning? These stuffed rolls are here to help you out!
No need to cut butter and flour together and bake dough in the morning; refrigerated biscuits work perfectly for this recipe and provide a perfectly flaky contrast to the egg filling.
While there may seem to be a lot of steps for this recipe, it’s really easy to make and sure to be a family favorite. The flaky biscuit dough separates so you can easily add the filling, and the filling really only takes 5 minutes to scramble in the pan. (Wanting to really excel at this part?

These loaded breakfast bombs are also really adaptable, so you can use your favorite egg fixings in this recipe, like crumbled sausage, sautéed green peppers, chopped onions, or diced ham.
These breakfast rolls are great for lunch or for dinner, too. They’re really filling and are a great main dish served with cheesy potatoes and fresh fruit. Try them with a blueberry smoothie or a mango smoothie. Need your AM caffeine? Try an iced vanilla latte or caramel iced coffee.
One pan of these breakfast biscuit bombs and you’ll agree: these egg biscuits just moved to the top of your weekly meal planning.
What you need
- Biscuit Dough: 1 can of refrigerated biscuit dough – we recommend a 16.3 oz can of Pillsbury Flaky Layers Biscuits.
- Eggs: You’ll want to scramble some eggs (we recommend scrambling them with butter, salt, pepper, and onion powder for flavor but you can prepare the eggs however you like them!).
- Bacon bits if you’re in a hurry, cooked and crumbled bacon if you have a little more time and prep ahead (try baking your bacon!). Prefer ham or sausage? Those can be used too, just make sure they’re cooked and cut into small pieces.
- Cheese: Shredded Colby Jack cheese works great for these; it’s mild and melts well. Other cheeses will work: sharp cheddar, pepper jack, or Swiss are good choices.
- You’ll also be making an easy egg wash by whisking together eggs and milk. Brushing this on the top of the biscuits makes them beautifully golden brown!
How to make them
Preheat oven to 350ºF and prepare cookie sheet with butter, parchment, silicone mat, or oil. In a small bowl beat the eggs, add salt, pepper, onion powder.
In a pan, over medium heat, melt butter. Then add bacon pieces and cook until warm.
Add egg mixture and cook and stir constantly until the egg is barely set. Remove from heat and and let mixture rest 5 minutes.
While eggs rest, open the biscuits. Gently separate the biscuits in half, leaving the back part attached if possible.
Add approximately 2 tablespoons of egg mixture to the center of each open biscuit and close each biscuit by pinching all around the edges.
Place each biscuit on prepared cookie sheet and brush with egg wash.
Cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are all nice and golden.
How to make them your own
- These stuffed biscuits taste great with your favorite egg scramble. Not a big bacon fan? No problem! Any cooked breakfast meat is great. You can add a small amount of sautéed veggies as well, like onions or green peppers.
- Looking for dinner inspiration? How about cheeseburger biscuit bombs? All you need is a little browned ground beef, or even better, a leftover hamburger. Scramble the burger into your eggs and add shredded cheddar into your biscuits.
- Have a couple people who are not keen on eggs? Try a pizza variety! A small amount of prepared pasta sauce and packaged pepperoni makes an easy option for anyone who wants to skip the eggs.
- Once the biscuits are cooked, you can top them with more shredded cheese or other biscuit toppings, like sausage gravy. Yum! Try topping them with chive butter or bacon jam!
Yes, however the flaky layer makes it easy to separate the layers so you can insert the stuffing. If you use another variety, you may need to use a knife to cut open the biscuits.
No! This recipe is great with or without the cheese!
Make Ahead Ideas
Looking to save a few minutes in the morning? You can prepare your raw egg mixture the night before and leave it in the refrigerator. Just wait until you’re ready to cook the eggs before adding the bacon bits.
Store in fridge for up to three days.
Biscuits may get slightly soggy after storing and reheating, but still will taste yummy! Reheat in microwave for 20-30 seconds or until heated through.
