Bacon and Cheesy Egg Biscuit with Black Berry Jam

Down here biscuits are popular for breakfast, whether it’s with a full, hearty breakfast or one from a fast food restaurant. This southern girl does love her biscuits. My hubby, who is not from down south, doesn’t quite understand the biscuit thing. Stuff some bacon in one of those fluffy pieces of heaven and add an egg and you have a really tasty breakfast. You have had a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit right? Or better yet, a biscuit with bacon, an egg with some nice, melty cheese mixed in, then top it with some black berry jam for a hint of sweetness. I’m really wanting one of those right now. If you want one too,here’s what you’ll need:

*Buttermilk Biscuits; you can use my recipe or your own, or even the premade kind.

*2 pieces of bacon per biscuit

*2 tsp butter; if making more than 4 eggs, then use 1 Tbs of butter.

*1 egg per biscuit

*1 Tbs cold water

*shredded cheese to taste; I used a cheddar colby jack blend

*salt and pepper to taste

*blackberry jam

While the biscuits are cooking, cook bacon; set aside.

When the biscuits are done, cut them open and spread the blackberry jam on the inside top.

set aside.

Heat a non stick pan on medium heat; add butter.

Break the eggs into a bowl and add 1 Tbs water; whisk the eggs well until blended. Pour the eggs into the pan.

Add salt and pepper to taste. If the eggs start to cook too fast, turn down the heat to medium low. You want to cook these low and slow. With a spatula, start pulling the outer edges of the eggs to the center.

Add in the cheese.

Keep gently pulling the eggs to the center and around the pan until the cheese melts and the eggs are no longer runny, but are still soft.

Place the egg on the bottom half of the biscuit.

Next layer the bacon on top of the eggs.

Place the top of the biscuit, jam side down onto the bacon.

And there you have it, a bacon biscuit with cheesy eggs and blackberry jam.
