If there’s one thing I love it’s breakfast and breakfast foods. Pancakes, waffles, hashbrowns, biscuits….. oh I do love good biscuits!! ❤️
If you’re the same way, you’ll fall instantly in love with these small batch cheddar biscuits. They’re crisp around the edges while being soft and cheesy inside. The flavor is spot on and so is the texture.
They make great breakfast sandwiches or side to traditional eggs, bacon, sausage, and skillet potatoes.
For the best breakfast sandwich I like to layer them with scrambled eggs, bacon, and fig preserves. It’s so good. This breakfast sandwich also makes a popular tailgate breakfast!
