Tasty Delights-- Breakfast Biscuit Bake

I saw a post a while back where they made a breakfast skillet with a biscuit crust on top and since breakfast is one of my favorite things I decided to play around with some of the things I had in the house and one of my pretty skillets my mom got me--they can go from stove to oven--and this came to be.

It was pretty easy and oh yum! Yeah the noms were good, yall. It did take me a couple of tries to get things right but worth the effort.

Breakfast in one dish! And it's so very easy to customize to personal tastes/what you have in the house/etc.

Basics you'll need...hashbrowns, eggs and biscuit dough-- either store bought or homemade.
Then add in whatever veggies or cheeses you'd like.
For yall that eat meat throw in your favorite pre-cooked meats.

First step is to saute up the onions and hash browns with a bit of salt and pepper.

I definitely recommend adding the seasonings. On the first attempt at the dish I just put the hashbrowns with no seasonings on the bottom of the dish and was a fairly bland addition to the overall meal. I liked the onions added in to them plus the butter from sauteing them and the salt/pepper. It made a huge difference.

Add in however many eggs you'd like. I ended up doing 6-10 eggs (depending on the size of the dish I used) but you can use more or less.
I did a little salt/pepper in with them and a splash of milk (or rather milk alternative) as well.

Once your hash browns are just a little browned pour your eggs over top.

And veggies. You can either layer or mix them in with the eggs before pouring them. 
I did it both ways and both work out fine.

Sprinkle on your cheese (that can be mixed with the egg too if you prefer) and top with your biscuits.

Now a NOTE!! Because *dramatic sigh* alas this was not a perfect domestic goddess creation and did take some trial and error on my part. This is from my first attempt at these so a different dish here but just ignore that. lol

I ran into a bit of an issue with the eggs and biscuits cooking evenly. 
When everything came out it was gorgeous until I noticed the egg under the middle two biscuits really hadn't cooked all the way through and the underside of those middle biscuits was under cooked as well. So I flipped those over that first time and gave it a little longer in the oven. I'm sure I didn't need to flip them over but I did and got a not quite as pretty end result. 

So the next time I used a different dish (the bake-able pan) and had similar issues with the center egg just not cooking all the way through. The second go about I opted NOT to flip that middle biscuit and just baked it longer until it was solid.

The turned out fairly well. The biscuits do get a little cooked though. My next attempt I believe I'll let the egg mixture bake and about halfway through add the biscuits.

Even with taking a little extra time to cook the dish came out really yummy and so filling!

Dish out and serve!

I've got a thing for avocado right now so added a little of that and some tomatoes in and gah what a yummy breakfast (or dinner as the case was here lol)

End result? I love this one. I really do. It's one you'll need to play around with until you get it just right for your personal preferences and I do really recommend the seasoning of the hash browns. That made a huge difference between attempt #1 and attempt #2.

*If you don't have a dish that can go from stove top to oven that's totally fine too.
Just saute things on the stove then layer into a casserole dish and pop it in the oven.
