Better Than The Freezer Aisle: Copycat Morningstar Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuits

I’ll admit giving up bacon as a vegetarian has been tough. I saw these frozen breakfast sandwiches in the grocery store one day and knew I needed to give them a try. However, at $5.99 a pop for only three biscuits, these used to be a family treat. But by assembling them myself I can save money, have them for breakfast whenever I want, and I also know exactly what is going into them. I like these even more than the original because I think they taste more fresh and are even a little bit bigger. I know that some vegetarians shy away from fake meat. Personally, this is one of the only meals that I use it in. If you have a favorite tempeh bacon recipe that would work. Otherwise, the bacon can easily be substituted for lots of fresh veggies, or whatever you prefer.

    Would there be any problem subbing real bacon?

      @ Nicole I “star” recipes I want to try by putting it on my pinterest board “recipes to try”. After I’ve made the recipe I put it on a different board or print and put inside a sleeve protector in one of my “Recipe Books” (a three ring binder)

    This recipe confuses me. It says you need 4 biscuits and that it makes 4 servings. What confuses me is that in the recipe it tells you to take half the biscuits 4/2 = 2 biscuits and put the eggs etc, then lay the other half on on top. That only makes 2. Is a serving half of a sandwich? Or are you supposed to cut all the biscuits in half- as in cut them in half and put the halves on a pan.

      Jane – Thanks for bringing that to our attention. The wording was a little confusing, however when we stated to “half” the biscuits, we mean to cut in half. We will be updating this to reflect easier to read directions.

    When you say “refrigerator biscuits” do you mean canned biscuits you buy at the store or is this code for a recipe you have?
