Country biscuit breakfast is a copycat recipe I have had posted online for years now. It is a DIY of the one served at Bob Evans restaurant (off and on). For awhile it was off the menu but I see it is back.

Country Biscuit Breakfast

I’d get this one a lot if we went  out for breakfast there. I am a huge fan of biscuit gravy although I am not trying  to copy their gravy as I prefer a more  sawmill type.

Typically at the restaurant the meat is left separate from the gravy and I used to do it that way, but it doesn’t make any difference. I will just use my sausage gravy and it comes out the same.

An Old Favorite

I had always called this “Breakfast Slop” as a joke because of the messy nature, but it really is good.

I started trying theirs over the biscuit gravy since  I  love runny eggs and this naturally added one. At home I might make a variation  of this by splitting the biscuit open-faced and doing two eggs. If you don’t  like a runny  egg you can also try hard cooked fried or maybe scrambled. If I  do scrambled I  will make it like a tiny omelette. Those are fun on egg mcmuffins.

Vary According to Your Likes

Other variants are adding sausage patties if you want it meatier. Or sometimes slipping one of those toaster hash brown patties in there (or having them on the side).

You can serve this with hash browns too. I like shredded hash browns over the ones called home fries. I mean, those are okay, but too many times I have seen places chop cold French  fries and refry them. That’s disgusting.

Cook with Quality

Reminds me of the  last time I went to Applebees for a chicken Caesar salad and they chopped up a previously fried  chicken  breast and fried it again. As if I couldn’t tell. I never went there again.

Sometimes I like making cottage fries too. Mom used to make those a lot. Nag  me to post  the recipe soon if I  forget to put it up.  I know I have been thinking of it.

Biscuits and Biscuit Gravy

You can use the biscuit gravy and buttermilk biscuit recipes I have on this post if you like. But the concept is all the same however you do it: biscuits, biscuit gravy, basted over easy eggs, and cheese.

Sorry  if I  haven’t  posted in  a week, but I haven’t been feeling great. It’s not the covid or anything. It’s the social unrest. It perturbs my chi. But I  am happy to at least get this one up.

I have been cooking though as I never seem to tire of that. So more recipes soon!

This month, the Foodie Extravaganza celebration is all about eggs, hosted by Karen’s Kitchen Stories.  We celebrate various food holidays. This month, we are celebrating eggs because today is National Egg Day.

  1. Here in Texas biscuits and gravy are a thing and usually a couple of eggs on the side complete the meal. A sandwich may be messier to eat but what a great way to get a little of everything in each bite!

  2. Well, here you have it…a gut bomb! A delicious gut bomb that’s making me crave breakfast!!! It’s got all the yummy yummies!

  3. Yum, yum, yum, and yum! These look absolutely to die for! The egg reminds me of a restaurant I went to once in Charleston that also included it, I was nearly licking the plate. Cannot wait to try these at some point this week.
