Having trouble getting the kids out of bed in the morning? Well after they catch a whiff of these Farmhouse Biscuit Sliders you won't have that trouble again. I'm a huge fan of breakfast, often times we'll plan to have some sort of breakfast items for lunch or even dinner.
I'm not a baker by any definition, I've tried a few times to bake up a cupcake or two but not had much success. But I have been experimenting with making my own biscuit mixes, just so I can impress the family every now and then. And of course there is nothing like eating a flaky biscuit kneaded by your own hands. Unless... you add your favorite breakfast foods to make a little sandwich that's twice as good as anything you could buy any place else.
Now don't get nervous, this was only my third, no fourth attempt at making these Farmhouse Biscuits, so you know if I can do it, so can you. Here are a few tips...
- measure all the ingredients carefully
- keep your butter cold, even after you have mixed it into a dough keep it in the refrigerator if your not prepared to roll it out right away
- don't over-work the dough, fold it onto itself only as many times as is needed to incorporate any excess flour
Farmhouse Biscuit Sliders
- 2 Cups All-Purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 sticks (12 Tablespoons) cold unsalted butter
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- cooked eggs
- cooked breakfast sausage (or any meat of your choosing)
- American cheese slices
- Salt & Pepper to taste
1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
2. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or your hands. Cut butter into about dime size pieces, don't over-work.
3. Add the egg and buttermilk and mix together with your hands until it's just combined.
4. Knead and roll the dough into a 3/4 inch thickness on a floured surface.
5. Cut biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch diameter biscuit cutter, place on a greased baking sheet.
6. Whisk together an egg with a splash of milk and brush tops of biscuits.
7. Cook in a 375 degree F oven for 11-13 minutes until flaky and browned.
Assembling the Sliders
1. While the biscuits are baking, cook any topping you will be adding, eggs and sausage are one of our favorites for breakfast.
2. After the biscuits are finished cooking, let them cool a little so they can be handled without burning your hands.
3. Split the biscuits and layer in the American cheese, sausage and fried eggs.
4. Sit back and relish the compliments from your satisfied family.
Add any of your breakfast favorites, eggs, sausage, bacon or ham. You get the idea. Only your imagination and stomach can limit what you add to these tasty sliders.
These biscuits turned out so good I think I'll be serving the family some biscuits and gravy this weekend, stop on by.
