What You’ll Love About This Recipe
You’ll need the following ingredients to make these Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuits:
Self-Rising Flour: This type of flour includes a leavening agent (baking powder) and salt, simplifying the biscuit-making process by reducing the number of ingredients needed. Be sure to use self-rising and all-purpose flour.
Greek Yogurt: I like Chobani Nonfat Plain Greek yogurt (as it keeps the recipe lighter) but any Greek yogurt will work here.
Bacon: Using fully cooked bacon is a time saver. If you prefer, you can cook your own bacon to your desired crispiness level.
How to make Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuits: Step-By-Step
How To Make The Homemade Biscuits
Step 1: Mix flour, salt, and yogurt until there are no crumbles left in the bottom of the bowl, the sides of the bowl are mostly “clean” and the dough looks well combined.
Step 2: Layout the biscuit dough on a floured surface. Pat out the dough until it’s about ½ inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter (sprayed with nonstick cooking spray) cut out 9 biscuits.
Step 3: Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray (or use parchment paper) and lay biscuits 2 inches apart. Bake for 19-22 minutes or until golden brown on top.
How To Make The Eggs
Step 1: While your biscuits are baking using a fork and a medium-sized bowl, whisk together 7 eggs with a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.
Step 2: Spray a large frying pan with non-stick cooking spray and cook eggs on low heat. Cook until edges are done and then flip over. Continue cooking until eggs are done.
Step 3: You should be able to slide your cooked egg right out of the pan onto a flat, clean surface. Using your biscuit cutter, cut out 9 egg rounds and lay ½ slice of cheese on top.
Tip: If you’d prefer, you can bake the whisked eggs in the oven and then cut the cooked eggs into rounds. Alternatively, using a silicone muffin tin offers an easy way to get perfect egg rounds every time.
How To Assemble The Breakfast Sandwiches
Step 1: Heat your pre-cooked bacon in the microwave as directed on the box and dab any extra bacon grease with paper towels once the bacon is cooked and crispy.
Step 2: Using a knife, cut the biscuit in half. Place a cheese topped egg patty on the biscuit then one strip of bacon on top of that and sandwich together with the top of the biscuit.
Recipe Tips and Tricks
For the perfect biscuit shape you can use a round biscuit or cookie cutter. Remember not to twist the cutter, as this seals the edges and can prevent the biscuit from rising fully.
For a golden-brown top, consider brushing the tops of the biscuits with a little bit of melted butter before baking.
In a time crunch? Canned biscuits work too.
Storage, Freezing, & Reheating
Storage: These biscuits should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should last for up to 5 days.
To Freeze: This is the perfect make ahead meal prep breakfast recipe. You can freeze your biscuits by wrapping them in aluminum foil (or wax paper) and then placing them in a freezer safe zip lock bag.
To reheat the biscuits, you can use either the microwave or the oven.
For the microwave, remove any foil if used for freezing, wrap the biscuit in a paper towel to absorb any moisture and microwave for about 3–45 seconds, or until heated through.
If using the oven, preheat it to 350°F. Keep the biscuit wrapped in foil and heat for about 15-20 minutes, or until warmed throughout.
Remember that the times may vary depending on the power of your microwave or how many biscuits you’re reheating at once in the oven. Always check the center of the biscuit to make sure it’s hot before eating.
In both cases, if the biscuits were frozen, it’s best to thaw them overnight in the refrigerator before reheating to reduce the time needed and ensure even heating.
Additions, Substitutions, and Variations
Cheese: You can use different kinds of cheese for a variety of flavors. Try sharp cheddar cheese for a tangy taste, Monterey Jack for a mellow flavor, or even pepper jack for a spicy kick.
Bacon: If you’re not a fan of bacon or want a change, you can use breakfast sausage, Canadian bacon, or even turkey bacon.
Veggies: You can add spinach, tomatoes, avocados, or sautéed bell peppers to pack in more nutrients and add color to your biscuit.
Seasonings: Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices. You could add garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or even a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for a bit of heat.
Heat: For those who like their breakfast spicy, add some hot sauce or jalapeños.
Biscuit alternatives: For a fun twist, consider replacing the biscuit with English muffins, bagels, croissants, sourdough or whole grain bread, or even a tortilla wrap for a breakfast burrito style. For those with dietary restrictions, gluten-free bread or bagels are great alternatives.
Southwest Style: For a Southwest flair, add ingredients like pepper jack cheese and top it with fresh salsa or pico de gallo. You might also consider adding avocado or guacamole for some healthy fats.
Southern Comfort: Use country ham instead of bacon, and add a generous dollop of sausage gravy on top for a Southern-style breakfast.

How To Serve
Fruit is one of my go-to side options for breakfasts like these. Here are some ideas:
- Fruit Salad With Greek Yogurt: Combine fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries with greek yogurt for a simple, sweet complement to your biscuits..
- Melon Balls: Use a melon baller on watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew to create a refreshing and colorful side dish.
- Grapefruit Halves: Serve chilled halves of grapefruit as a tangy, refreshing contrast to the rich biscuits. You can sprinkle with a bit of sugar, if desired.
- Mango Spinach Smoothie: For a more filling side that’s still light and fruity, consider a smoothie made with banana, mango, spinach, and almond milk.
- Fruit Yogurt Parfait: Layer Greek yogurt, granola, and your choice of fruits for a healthy, flavorful side dish.
