Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Brunch Better with Simply Potatoes #SimplyPotatoes

Brunch Better with Simply Potatoes #SimplyPotatoes





 Do you like brunch? I know I do! I usually don't eat first thing right after I wake up, so it's usually late morning/early afternoon before my belly starts rumbling. I'm more inclined to use the stove later in the day to enjoy a hot meal instead of just grabbing a bowl of cereal or a bagel to satisfy my growling tummy. I'm a potato girl and could eat them for every meal, but with my arthritis, I don't always have the desire to fight through the pain of peeling and dicing them for my meals. Because of that, I have been a huge fan of Simply Potatoes® pre-washed, peeled, and diced potatoes for the past few years. Some of you may remember my yummy Maple Glazed Roasted Vegetables that I made with their sweet potatoes last fall.

Because they go from farm to fridge to fork, getting a hot serving of potatoes is as simple is opening up my fridge and pulling out a bag of Simply Potatoes, then popping them in the oven or heating them up in a skillet. No prep and no mess = one happy girl!

While I do use Simply Potatoes for dinner often, I do like to break them out on the weekends for brunch with the family. They are awesome in casseroles, but over the weekend I did something a little different and made us some Cheesy Breakfast Biscuit Cups.

Cheesy Breakfast Biscuit Cups

These can be made in a standard 12 cavity muffin pan, but I like to use the extra big 6 cavity muffin pans with this recipe because you get a lot more filling to enjoy with each biscuit.




Yield: Serves 6

 

Cheesy Potato Breakfast Biscuit Cups

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 12 ounce package bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup milk + 1 tbsp milk, divided
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups Simply Potatoes® Diced Potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 can refrigerated flaky biscuits (8 biscuit can)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cook bacon according to package directions. Drain and crumble.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Combine flour, salt, and pepper; add to pan. Add 3/4 cup of milk and continuously stir for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat, stir in bacon crumbles, then set aside.
  3. In a separate skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and occasionally stir until potatoes are tender and have turned golden brown. 
  4. While potatoes are cooking, whisk together the eggs, garlic salt, + 1 tbsp milk. Pour mixture over the golden potatoes and stir just until set. Remove from heat.
  5. Press biscuit dough into the bottoms and up the sides of a muffin tin cavities. Place a heaping spoonful of the potato mixture onto the dough. Next, place a tsp of grated cheese over the potato layer, followed by 1 tsp of the bacon mixture. Top with 1 more tsp cheese shreds. Repeat until 8 small or 6 large muffin cavities are filled. 
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Cheesy Breakfast Biscuit Cups


I did use the diced potatoes here, but you could mix this recipe up and use their shredded hash browns or sweet potatoes to keep things interesting. Switch up the filling to suit your fancy as well. Maybe add in some diced onion, peppers, or sausage. Any way you fill it, these biscuits are amazing!

You can find Simply Potatoes in the refrigerated section at your local grocers. Be sure to visit the Simply Potatoes website for more tasty recipes!

    These look soooo nom! Lovely arrangement in photos! Who does not like potatoes in all shapes and meals :) Admittedly I once haven't eaten them for two years, for reasons unknown. These days I mostly eat them in salads with mayo.

    1. His doctor thought carpel tunnel or arthritis. They sent him in for scans and they came back saying nothing is wrong. The pain in his hands is just from him getting old, bwhahaha!
      Me, on the other hand, have all sorts of joint pains from my illness :( Especially when the weather changes. Now that we are about to roll into spring, these rainy days are super brutal on my joints.
      We do love potatoes in any form we can get them! Morning, noon, or night, gimme gimme gimme!
