(Kinda Like) Chick-fil-A Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit


Even when eating clean, I cannot deny myself the occasional treat, because no person is perfect! And I truly believe you should allow yourself some wiggle room for a splurge meal every once in a while.

I have to admit, my idea of a cheat meal comes from one of my favorite fast food restaurants--Chick-Fil-A.  For lunch and dinner, I will always get their salads, because they are seriously some of the best fast food salads on the planet.

But when it comes to breakfast? Well, I simply cannot deny myself one of their buttery biscuit breakfast sandwiches. There is just something about that warm biscuit, drenched in butter that falls apart in your hands that screams "Country Cooking!"

Of course, in an effort to salvage both my budget and my waistline, I try to only treat myself to these little morsels of heaven once every few months. That said, after perusing the aisles of Sam's Club yesterday, I came upon a massive bag of frozen Grand's biscuits. So I decided to try and make my own at home, making sure I had plenty to store away in the freezer for the coming weeks.

Turns out, these are as close to the real deal as I can get, which makes me so happy, and slightly nervous. Though I did not lighten these up, please note that you can swap out the pork for turkey sausage and the whole eggs for egg whites.

Sometimes, you just have to have the full-fat meal, butter and all.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • Frozen Grand's biscuits (I made 8 for this recipe, but many more come in the bag from Sam's)
  • 1 package of ground sausage
  • 5 large eggs
  • Cheddar cheese slices
  • 1 tbs milk
  • 2 tbs melted butter (divided)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic (divided)
Directions:
  1. Bake Grand's biscuits according to package directions. Note: place on parchment paper to ensure bottoms don't burn.
  2. While biscuits are baking, slice sausage into 1-inch patties and cook over medium-high heat until no longer pink.
  3. Scramble eggs, milk, and 1 tsp of garlic together.
  4. Cooking over low heat in a pan with 1 tbs melted butter.
  5. Once biscuits finish,  combine remaining melted butter and garlic. Brush on top of biscuits and place back in the oven for 1 more minute.
  6. Once cooled, cut the biscuits in half and layer a cheese slice, sausage patty, and a spoonful of scrambled egg in each one. 
  7. Eat right away or wrap in aluminum foil and save for later.
