Lots of people call this a "quiche" and I guess that is what it is... But this is made a little differently. This is a terrific breakfast to have for those on the go. I make one or two at a time, slice them, and keep the slices in freezer bags. I thaw one at a time and microwave them when ready to eat!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This breakfast pie is a delicious weekend breakfast for family or guests. With bacon, eggs, biscuits, cheese, and hash browns, it really is an entire breakfast in a pie. Quick and easy to make, we loved ours with a little salsa as Cathy suggested. Add some fresh fruit on the side and you'll look like a kitchen genius.

Ingredients For quick & easy breakfast pie

  • 6 slice
    bacon, cut in pieces and fried (or can use 5 to 6 ounces bulk breakfast sausage, fully cooked)
  • 6 lg
    eggs, beaten
  • 1 pkg
    canned biscuits (10-count tube)
  • 3 - 4 oz
    shredded cheddar cheese (may use Jack, Swiss, mozzarella or any type of cheese you like)
  • 1 1/2 c
    cooked hash brown potatoes (optional)

How To Make quick & easy breakfast pie

  • Oven preheating to 350 degrees.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pressing biscuits into a glass pie dish.
    Open the tube of canned biscuits and place all of them in the bottom of a 9-inch glass pie pan. Press together with fingertips, pushing the dough up the side of the plate as much as you can. (After a few minutes, it will start to shrink back, so keep pushing it together and up the sides of the plate before you add the filling.)
  • Frying bacon in a skillet.
    Fry diced bacon until cooked to your liking (or cook bulk sausage in loose pieces). Drain most of the drippings off.
  • Cooking hash browns.
    Cook hash browns if using them.
  • Meat and hash browns added to the pie plate.
    Arrange the meat in the bottom of the pie dish with your cooked hash browns (if you decide to use them) on top of the pressed biscuits.
  • Whisked eggs in a bowl.
    Break your eggs into a mixing bowl and whip until thoroughly blended.
  • Eggs poured into the pie plate and cheese sprinkled on top.
    Pour whipped eggs over the meat and potato mixture in the pie dish. Then top it with cheese. Remember the canned biscuits will rise a little, so be sure and do not over-fill the pie.
  • Breakfast Pie baking in the oven.
    Place in preheated oven and bake uncovered 30 to 40 minutes. The edges of the biscuits should be browned.
  • Quick & Easy Breakfast Pie ready to be sliced.
    Using a toothpick, test for doneness. Remove from oven and cool about 10 minutes before slicing. Serve hot, or cool completely, slice and place slices in freezer bags. You can pull one out of the freezer at a time, and microwave it for your convenience as desired. (I recommend serving this with a delicious salsa of your choosing. I use ("La Costena" brand) green tomatillo salsa that isn't too spicy. This lends it a wonderful and savory Tex-Mex flavor!)

    As a side note, feel free to add other ingredients, like caramelized onions with chunks of sweet bell peppers or spicy jalapenos, chorizo, etc. You can also sprinkle some slices of black olive on top. Use your appetite and imagination to make this suit your own taste. Buen Probecho, Y'all!! Enjoy!
