I am always trying to come up with new and exciting things for weekend breakfast. I know, I keep talking about my love for weekend breakfasts but it runs deep, what can I say?
These Mini Breakfast Pizzas are so tasty and while look a little labor intensive, are quick to whip up. They would be perfect for a casual brunch with a side of fruit. You could always change up the ingredients to customize them to your taste as well. Ham, onions, peppers, Swiss cheese, the sky is the limit!
Mini Breakfast Pizzas
(Makes 8 breakfast pizzas)
1 1/2 cups of cooked sausage
1/4 teaspoon Season All Salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk (plus additional to thin out, if needed)
1 teaspoon salt (plus additional to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon salt (plus additional to your taste)
8 large refrigerated biscuits
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese of your choice
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Cook the sausage to the directions on the package. Set aside for now.
In spray a different pan with cooking spray and preheat on medium heat. Combine the eggs, Season All Salt and black pepper in a small bowl. Once the pan is hot, pour eggs in and scramble. Do this by cooking on medium heat and scraping, scraping, scraping. That is they key to fluffy scrambled eggs. Once the eggs are almost all the way cooked, remove from the heat. They will continue to cook while they sit and in the oven.
In the pan you cooked the sausage in, add the butter to melt. Once melted, sprinkle in the flour and combine. You will want to stir with a whisk, cook for 2 minutes or so. After 2 minutes, pour in the milk while whisking to combine. Once combined, add the salt and pepper. Stir and taste. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. If the gravy is thick, you can stir in additional milk until you reach a gravy type consistency. Note that it will thicken a bit during assembly and in the oven. Set aside for now.
Take out the biscuits and place on a cookie sheet leaving at least 2 inches between them. Gently press down with your fingers and flatten. Next, take a spoonful of gravy and use that as the "pizzas" sauce. Add the eggs and sausage next. Sprinkle the top with a good amount of shredded cheese.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown on the edges and the cheese is melted.
Serve with additional gravy for dipping.
