breakfast biscuit sandwich

Remember the buttermilk dinner I prepared a few weeks ago? Well, I had so many buttermilk biscuits leftover, I had to find something to do with them. 

Enter the breakfast bisquit sammy:

But first, the skinny on how to make buttermilk biscuits:

2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 c butter (melted)

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
Blend together the first 5 ingredients (all the way to the salt). But the butter into small chunks and mix with your hands. It will become crumbly. Add the buttermilk and stir gently. 
Knead the dough on a floured surface for a few minutes. Use a rolling pin or plastic cup and roll out the dough. I flip the cup upside down and use that circular shape to cut out the biscuits. 
Place them on a baking sheet. Brush with melted butter and bake until the tops of the biscuits are golden (about 10 minutes) 

Now onto the sandwich:
2 buttermilk biscuits
1 egg 
slice of cheddar cheese
swiss chard or kale (a small handful)
tomato slice
bacon (veggie or otherwise, not shown, because I had none!)

Fry your egg. While your egg is frying, you can chop up the chard or kale and place in the same pan with some olive oil. 

Reheat your biscuits if need be:

Slice biscuit in half and assemble as follows:
bottom half of biscuit, slice of cheese, chard, slice of tomato, egg (sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste), bacon (if you included it) and top of biscuit!
