I’m about to rock your brunch.
Or breakfast…or lunch. You know, whatever floats your biscuit boat. But I’m doing it chipotle style; who doesn’t like a little heat?
I made these in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep and I kept thinking about these biscuits that my sister makes using her “dump and pour” method. I wish y’all could hear her say that in her Southern drawl – Believe it or not hers is much more significant than mine.
We actually made a tutorial video when she was here last (which was absolutely hysterical
by the way), but based on the amount of Pinot Grigio we consumed before we shot it…eh, yeah
, you all won’t be seeing it.
We’ll do another one, I promise. This time we’ll nix the Pinot before trying to tell people how to make biscuits.
The biscuit recipe is really simple; AP flour, baking powder, salt, buttermilk, butter, chives and Cabot’s Chipotle Cheddar Cheese (which is so damn good), then I piled on very thinly sliced pastrami and ham, Muenster cheese and an over-medium egg.
‘Cause you gotta have the runny yolk.
This would make an amazing breakfast in bed, right? It needs nothing but a brunch cocktail.
Hell, skip the OJ and just go straight Prosecco.
