Budget Buster - Biscuits

One of our Saturday traditions is making a big breakfast. Scrambled eggs, sausage, and biscuits is one of our favorites. For what you get, canned biscuits are a big budget buster. Did you know that making biscuits is really easy?

Try this instead of buying canned:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening or cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk

In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Cut in shortening or butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the egg and milk; use fork to stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Using an ice cream scoop, place scoops of dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Do you have traditional breakfasts on the weekends? What are you favorites?

Love this post! Many years ago Steve decided that Saturday mornings would be his time to cook for our family. He makes homemade biscuits and sausage gravy, eggs, bacon and toast, waffles with fruit glaze and whipped cream or omelets to order with hashbrowns. I feel spoiled!

Saturday morning is my husband's turn for cooking breakfast too. He fixes buckwheat pancakes, perfect over easy eggs (every time!!!) and any meat he can find in the fridge. I usually add a fruit syrup and shhhhh (whipped cream!). It's my favorite day of the week!

Ps I would love to see a picture of your homemade biscuits!! ;)
