McBiscuits is a term used to describe homemade biscuits or scones that are prepared in a similar style to those served at McDonald’s for their popular breakfast sandwiches, such as the Sausage McMuffin. Here’s how to make your own version of McBiscuits:
For the Biscuits:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
- 3/4 cup milk
For the Breakfast Sandwich:
- Cooked breakfast sausage patties or bacon strips
- Eggs, fried or scrambled
- Slices of cheese (American cheese is commonly used)
- Preheat the Oven:
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Prepare Biscuit Dough:
- In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Cut in Butter:
- Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add Milk:
- Pour in the milk and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.
- Roll and Cut Biscuits:
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times to bring it together. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass to cut out biscuit rounds.
- Bake Biscuits:
- Place the biscuit rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and puffed up.
- Assemble Breakfast Sandwiches:
- While the biscuits are baking, prepare your breakfast sandwich components. Cook the breakfast sausage patties or bacon until they’re done to your liking. Cook the eggs (fried or scrambled) and add a slice of cheese to melt on top.
- Slice and Serve:
- Once the biscuits are done, allow them to cool for a few minutes. Slice them in half horizontally like you would for a sandwich. Assemble the breakfast sandwiches by placing a sausage patty or bacon and a cooked egg with cheese between the biscuit halves.
- Serve your homemade McBiscuits hot, and enjoy a delicious breakfast sandwich!
Feel free to customize your McBiscuits with other ingredients like ham, Canadian bacon, or different types of cheese to suit your taste. Homemade biscuits add a wonderful touch to breakfast sandwiches, and you can make them exactly the way you like.
