It’s time to start this arduous endeavor of food blogging.
This story begins while I was going downstairs to grab my third round of Ritz crackers. While descending, I ran into my favorite roommate, Jayden! He had an amazing looking egg biscuit in his hands and you could just tell it was made with love and a slight sense of agitation by my mother, our mother, because Jayden is 9 and I’m sure he begged her incessantly for it even though he just ate.
So, after being chased around the house for stealing his biscuit, I realized, I don’t need his food…I need to make my own and document it! And that is how we arrived at this point.
So, without further ado, here is my recipe for a basic egg biscuit:
What you will need:
- 1 Egg
- 1 Biscuit (mine was store-bought & made the night before)
- 1 Slice of cheese (I recommend white American because that is all we had)
- Cooking spray
- 1 Source of heat
- Optional: Plate
- Even more optional: Napkin
- Take your pan, spray with cooking spray, and place it on the oven. Set to medium temperature.
- Pop your biscuit in the microwave for ~15-25 seconds. You are more than welcome to place the biscuit on a napkin or plate before you microwave, but that just isn’t as exciting as possibly getting leftover pasta sauce on your biscuit!
- While the biscuit is heating, crack your egg into the pan. If you get a shell in there, leave it be. Consider it a free life lesson! Humans aren’t perfect and neither is your egg.
- Contemplate adding some seasoning. Hear the microwave go off and take out the biscuit. Forget about the seasoning.
- Once your egg starts to look ~75% done, flip it.
- While it continues to cook, place your cheese on top. Continue cooking the egg to your preference.
- Pull apart the biscuit hamburger style by using your superhuman strength. Start thinking of Snapchat captions to entice you tens of followers.
- Using your spatula, transfer the cheesy egg from the pan to the biscuit.
- WAIT FOR THE EGG TO COOL.
The egg sandwich was one of my favorite dishes growing up. However, this variation upon a classic does nothing to excite my sophisticated, culinary palate. Perhaps it was the off-brand biscuit that was used, which provided a baby powder-type aftertaste. Or maybe it was the cooking spay , which was not my friend, Pam, but rather, just another disappointing generic brand. The only redeemable quality about this biscuit was the cheese-egg mixture. Despite the “texture” added to my meal because of the egg shell, this duo managed to save the dish. The delicious cheese added a milky element that is always welcome. Together with the egg, I was left wanting more long after my last bite.
All in all, I would rate this dish a 5/10. In future incarnations, I will probably leave out the biscuit (unless it was homemade). I also probably swap out the cooking spray and use butter instead. Honestly, you really can’t go wrong with cheese and eggs.
