One of my favorite things to do is recreate things I tried in restaurants. A few weeks ago, I met up with a friend for brunch in Long Beach. We shared an appetizer and an entree and sipped bellinis. For our appetizers, we shared some breakfast sliders.
After one bite, I was in love. I mean… biscuits, eggs, bacon, sausage gravy.
Everything you want in breakfast in one delicious bite. I knew I had to recreate them, and so I did.
1 Recipe for Crazy Good Biscuits
1/2 lb breakfast sausage
1/3 cup flour 3 cups milk (I used low fat)
12 slices of bacon
8 eggs (I used Eggland’s Best)
First make your sausage gravy. Crumble and cook your breakfast sausage in a large skillet or pot. Make sure you buy the kind in the tube, not the links. Once the sausage is almost cooked through, add flour and toss. Cook a few minutes. Stream in milk, slowly, stirring constantly to break up lumps. Add garlic salt to taste. Remember the breakfast sausage is pretty salty on its own so you won’t need too much. Set aside, leave on simmer to keep warm.
Next make your biscuits and cook your bacon until crispy and set aside.
The last step is to cook the egg. Scramble the eggs in a bowl. Pour eggs into a greased, heated skillet. Cover and allow to cook a few minutes until almost cooked through. You’re basically making a big egg pancake that you can slice and fold. Once the eggs have almost set, flip over and cook another few seconds. Remove from heat and slice in half, then slice each half into 1 1/2 – 2 inch thick strips. You should have 10-12 pieces.
Now assemble your sliders. Slice the biscuits in half. On the bottom half, lay some sausage gravy, then take an egg strip and fold in half and place on top of sausage gravy, lay on some bacon and top off with top of biscuit. Repeat until all your sliders are ready. This recipe will make about 10-12 sliders.
These coincided with the fact that Eggland’s Best send me some egg coupons to throw a Brinner Party. These were the perfect appetizer.
So if you’re having a Brinner party or if you just want to have an awesome breakfast-inspired treat, this is it.
