How to Make Chive Biscuit Sandwich with bacon and cheese mix

Step-by-Step

  • 1For the Chive Biscuits: Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
  • 2Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, baking soda, and pepper.
  • 3Add chilled butter to bowl, and, cut into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in chives
  • 4Add 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (yoghurt) and stir with wooden spoon just till combined. If mixture looks dry, add more buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time until dough is cohesive.
  • 5Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead just until it comes together, no more than 6 times. Pat dough into a 1-inch thick (I made 1/2 inch thick) circles. Use floured biscuit cutter (I used the one cup measuring cup bottom) to stamp out the biscuits—don’t twist—and arrange them about 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • 6Bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer tray to cooling rack
  • 7For the Cheddar Spread: Meanwhile, in medium bowl, use fork to combine cheddar, cream cheese, mayonnaise, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside
  • 8For the Bacon and Eggs: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook bacon until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to plate and tent with foil.
  • 9Add remaining tablespoon butter to skillet. Crack eggs into skillet and season with salt and pepper.
  • 10When egg whites begin to bubble and turn opaque, add water and cover pan with lid.
  • 11Cook eggs 3 to 4 minutes until egg whites are set and egg yolk has a shell-pink color. Continue cooking eggs if you prefer a set yolk.
  • 12Using a spatula, divide the eight eggs and remove from heat.
  • 13To assemble: Cut biscuits in half and spread both halves with cheddar spread. Top bottom halves with 2 slices Canadian bacon, then top with one egg and sandwich with second biscuit half. Serve two per person, if biscuits are small, or two per person if biscuits are large.
