As I started writing this post, I asked my husband for a catchy name for this morning's breakfast and his title is above. It's a big title for a little sandwich, but we had a hard time capturing all the goodness it contains! This recipe makes ten biscuits so you can either make it for a brunch crowd or wrap the leftover sandwiches in foil and stash them in the refridge. Then on a rushed weekday, morning, you can pop them in a 350*F oven for 7-10 minutes for a hearty hand held breakfast to get the day started off right!
GF Sunday Morning Ham & Egg Wake-Up Biscuits:
2 1/4 cup gf multipurpose flour
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp honey
5 slices sm ham steak
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Combine biscuit mix and buttermilk in a mixing bowl until the mix is completely moistened.
Take a piece of plastic wrap and dust a little flour on it. Lay your biscuit dough on it and cover it with another piece of plastic wrap. (You might need a little more flour).
Gently roll out the dough to about a 3/4 inch or so. Use a floured biscuit cutter or rim of a juice glass to cut out your biscuits. You will get 20 biscuits. Slide a metal spatula underneath the dough and place cut biscuits onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, brush tops of biscuits with honey that you heated for 20 seconds in the microwave. Continue baking for another 3-5 minutes. Remove them from the oven & leave heat on for final step in the recipe.
While the biscuits are baking, heat 5 slices of ham over med-high heat for 6-7 minutes, turning once while cooking. Set ham aside & fry the eggs in the same skillet.
To build your sandwiches, turn 10 biscuits honey side down on the baking sheet. Cut each ham slice into quarters and lay 2 quarter pieces on each upside down biscuit. Next lay an egg on each biscuit. Lastly, put a pinch of cheese and place another biscuit on the top to finish them. Slide the biscuits into the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Enjoy!
