Breakfast Sliders

While you've probably heard of a hamburger slider, but have you ever eaten a breakfast slider? I hadn't either until I decided to mix one of my favorite breakfast foods into a slider, topped off with a special sausage and gravy sauce.

This delicious dish is great when you have people over and need something filling for brunch. They will be asking for seconds after the very first bite.

Breakfast Slider Ingredients                                       Sausage & Gravy Ingredients
- 1 container of Pillsbury Simply Biscuits                    - 1 tbs. of butter
- 4 eggs                                                                      - 2 1/2 cups of milk
- 1tbs. of milk                                                             - 1 1/2 tbs. of flour
- 3 slices of cheddar                                                  - 6 links of breakfast sausages
- salt and pepper to taste                                           - dash of cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp. of butter                                                         - salt and pepper to taste

Servings: 10 sliders                                                              Servings: 10 sliders

     First start off by following the directions of your Pillsbury Simply Biscuits and put them in the oven. While those cook, crack four eggs in a bowl and add 1 tbs. of milk. Whisk the eggs with a fork, which I find easier than a whisk when it comes to eggs. Turn on your stove and start heating up our pan on medium. Place a teaspoon of butter in the pan and pour your eggs mixture into the pan. Use a wooden spoon to keep eggs from sticking and scramble them up. This will take about 5 minutes to cook. Add a little salt and pepper and then, remove from burner.

   Then, its time to make your gravy mixture.
In a different pan, take 1 tbs. of butter and melt it. Then, take 1 tbs. of flour and then add 1 cup of milk. Slowly stir until it becomes smooth.
 Chop up your 6 links of breakfast sausages and place it in your mixture. Then,
add the other 1/2 tbs. of flour and 1 1/2 cups of milk stir until smooth. Then, add a dash of cayenne pepper, pepper and salt to taste.

By this time, your biscuits will be ready to take out of the oven. After they've cooled, take each one and cut them in half horizontally. Place a small spoonful of your eggs on the bottom biscuit, then a small square of cheddar on top of it. Then, drizzle a spoonful of your sausage and gravy mixture on top of that. The heat will then melt your cheese. Place the other half of your biscuit on top and add a toothpick to keep everything together and to add to the presentation. Then enjoy!
