Maple'n Bacon Biscuits with Poached Eggs & Cheese
Does anyone like "McDonald's McGriddles"??? Then you'll love the scrumptious flavor combination of this homemade breakfast sandwich!!
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup bacon (fried, drained & then chopped)
Begin by frying & draining the bacon - once cooled chop and put aside. In a large mixing bowl stir the flour & baking powder together. Now "cut" the butter into the flour (as you would do for a pie crust). With a wooden spoon stir in the milk, maple syrup & chopped bacon (previously fried & drained) until it resembles the picture above. Now you will use your hands and you might need to add a little more flour if the dough is sticky. Form the dough into a log shape & slice into 10 to 12 puck size slices as seen below.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet & bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes (or until desired golden brown color is achieved).
While the biscuits are baking - begin poaching the eggs.

Remove the biscuits from the oven and assemble while the biscuits are still warm so that the cheese will melt.
Place a biscuit on a plate, then place a slice of cheese on the biscuit and then top with the poached egg (see picture above).
|This egg has been "soft" poached as opposed to the "runny" poached egg in the first picture.|
