Now that I’m working from home, I’m able to spend more time in the kitchen. I hadn’t realized how much I’d missed being in the kitchen until we moved up here. Over the last two months, I’ve been back to cooking multiple times a day and baking sugar cookies (Brandon’s favorite!). The biggest change has come with breakfast though. When we lived in Atlanta, we had to leave so early to try to beat traffic that breakfast was usually a bowl of cereal or a shake I grabbed as I rushed out the door. While we still have busy mornings, more often than not I’m able to actually cook breakfast.
One of our favorite go-to breakfasts has been egg white biscuits with bacon and spinach. Brandon is a vegetarian so I substitute Benevolent Bacon from Sweet Earth Foods on his biscuit. It’s actually really good so sometimes I’ll substitute benevolent bacon on my sandwich as well. I’m sure my heart appreciates the break. 😉
On Sunday I am usually in the kitchen cooking a big pot for quinoa for the week (it’s good for about 7 days once you cook it) and, that night, I’ll make a small tray of biscuits. Homemade biscuits are really only good for about 1 – 2 days after baking them so I’ll use them for breakfast on Monday and Tuesday before making another batch. If I don’t have time to make my own homemade biscuits, I’ll use Pillsbury Grands Southern Homestyle Biscuits instead. I love that I can buy a small can (5 biscuits) and they are ready in 15-minutes. Some days I need simple, and those are simple. Not to mention they are flaky and crumbly, like a good biscuit should be.
When the biscuits are almost finished, I’ll slip a few slices of fresh tomato sprinkled with herb de provence on the baking sheet to warm them up. I love warm tomatoes as a side to my egg white biscuits. Brandon usually adds his tomato to his biscuit. However you do breakfast tomatoes – on the side, on the biscuit, or not at all – just do you. To each their own although I highly recommend adding them, especially if you can get them fresh off the vine like I’m hoping to get from our garden soon.
As an extra bonus – these breakfast biscuits are ready in 15 minutes!
