This invention, my Skinny Stuffed Breakfast Biscuit, was made with love . . . actually, out of an extremely hangry Monday morning. Ever had a Sausage & Egg McMuffin? They’re delicious of course. Not good for you, not even a pinch, but they’re so crumbly and buttery and scrumptious, you’ll surely feel good while devouring it! Ever had a Chick Fil A chicken biscuit? Oh me, oh my! So imagine this . . . a sausage McMuffin and a chicken biscuit walk into an oven . . . .This, just like the Egg & Sausage McMuffin and the Chicken Biscuit, has a wonderfully crumbly texture! The dough tastes like Sunday morning! Also, it’s jam-packed with ground turkey sausage, egg and cheddar cheese! Perfect for a breakfast sandwich or ditch the egg for an afternoon burger! 🙂Are you dying to know how to whip up this bite of Heaven, aka my Skinny Stuffed Breakfast Biscuit? Then you should make it. Using some awesome kitchen must-haves (particularly awesome when making homemade dough):
Favorites? I am an addict for marble cheese boards, and one with a cheese slicer? All the better. I also have to have that bread maker. Homemade bread, warm – think those soft, warm doughy rolls that come out fresh at Italian restaurants. And finally, I wholly welcome that Raclette Cheese.
- Biscuit Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup white whole wheat flour (134 calories)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder ?(2 calories)
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of Truvia
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt? (15 calories, depending)
- 1 tablespoon liquid eggbeaters, half for brushing (8 calories)
- 1 tablespoon cold water?, for brushing
- Stuffing Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup ground turkey sausage (about 65 calories)
- Seasoning of choice. I used Flavor God's "Everything Seasoning," but if you don't have it, consider salt, black pepper, thyme, sage, cayenne, garlic powder, ground cloves, nutmeg and allspice.
- 1/4 cup fat-free cheddar cheese (45 calories)
- Optional: 3 tablespoons liquid eggbeaters or egg-whites, scrambled (25 calories)
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- If turkey has not yet been cooked, mix wet meat with seasoning mixture.
- In a non-stick, medium-sized pan, cook 1/4 cup ground turkey sausage (lathered in seasoning) over medium/high heat. You can add in 1 teaspoon of coconut oil if desired to brown the turkey.
- Chop up turkey along the way, cooking until meat is no longer pink and has browned fully. Set aside.
- In a separate skillet, scramble eggs (if desired). Set aside.
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all dry ingredients for your biscuit.
- Add wet ingredients for biscuit dough into dry ingredients, one-by-one (excluding 1/2 tablespoon of eggbeaters and water for brushing), stirring until all ingredients have been mixed, but not over mixed. Clumpy dough is desired in this situation in order to create those pretty biscuit crumbles.
- Using your hand, work crumbles of dough into an unevenly shaped ball.
- Using your thumb, press a hole in the dough and begin to hollow it out so that it resembles a bowl.
- Stuff dough with ground turkey, egg (if desired), and cheddar cheese.
- Close up dough so that it forms a ball again.
- In a small bowl, combine 1/2 tablespoon of eggbeaters and water, mixing well.
- Brush the top of your biscuit with egg/water mixture.
- Place biscuit on a sheet of parchment paper, which is then to be placed on an oven-safe tray, and stick in the oven.
- Bake for approximately 12 - 15 minutes, or until the top of your dough is a pretty, golden-brown color. Stick a toothpick through the center of the dough and assess for wet batter. If no wet batter appears, your dough is done. Continue cooking if not yet complete, and check with the toothpick test several times until ready to serve.
- Remove from the oven and enjoy while it's hot! 🙂
- Note: you may consider rubbing your biscuit with 1 teaspoon of honey-butter (3 parts butter, 1 part honey). It's delicious!
