We usually have pancakes for our traditional Saturday morning breakfast but for the past few Saturdays, the family has been requesting my breakfast sandwiches.
"I like your pancakes but I love your breakfast sandwiches!"

Please make your own biscuits! It's easy & fast and your family will love them tons more. Takes me less time to mix the dough & cut them out than it does for the oven to heat up.

makes approx 7 biscuits (2.5" diameter)

2 C flour
1T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/3 C butter
2/3 C milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together.
Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives until pea size balls form. 

Add milk; mix just until it clings together.
Knead gently with a little extra flour, about 10-12 strokes.

Roll or pat out onto lightly floured surface, at least 1/2" thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter or the top of a glass or plastic cup. You'll have to knead and roll it out a couple of times to use up all the dough.

Arrange on greased baking sheet or seasoned stone.

Bake for 10 minutes or until tops start to brown.

To make the Breakfast Sandwich:
While biscuits are cooking, cook sausage or bacon in a skillet. Remove meat to a plate but not the grease. Drop eggs one at a time into hot grease over medium heat. Cook until eggs are fried over medium (the whites are cooked, the yolk is still runny). If you need to splash a little grease onto the tops of the eggs with a spatula to cook the egg whites, that's perfectly fine.  

Pull a biscuit apart in the middle, add meat then the fried egg. Top with the biscuit top and serve.
