Notes

I used microwave bacon for this recipe, but you can also cook your own or use bacon bits for this recipe.

You can also use skim milk if you want a lower-fat meal.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container and keep it refrigerated.

This looks delicious!! Can this be assembled the night before and then baked in the morning?

Thank you!

Thank you, Becky! It can, but I would wait to put the bacon and biscuits in right before baking so they don't get soggy. You can just mix them in when you're ready to bake.
