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.
(click to see "Egg Basics - POACHED")
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.|

Yum. I never realized that the eggs at McDonald's were poached. You have taught me something. Thank you. I'll give this a try.ReplyDelete
Personally, I do not care for "McDonald's McGriddles" but this homemade breakfast looks DELICIOUS! I never have luck with poached eggs though...maybe I will give them a try, again!ReplyDelete
Im not sure what mcGriddles are, they aren't available in the UK, but it sounds very similar to our McMuffins!ReplyDelete
Love this recipe :) x
The "McGriddle" has more of a pancake bun made with maple syrup (here is a link: http://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/food/product_nutrition.breakfast.277.sausage-egg-cheese-mcgriddles.html )Delete
I changed it up a bit with my bacon maple biscuit.
