This is so gringo it is unreal, but I like the name and that is what they look like. ;) I thought this up because I wanted to make the same ol thing different. I think changing the stuffing will be fun to try... Tell me what you come up with.

These are nice, and they would be great on a brunch buffet. I love how they look! I did change mine a little. I used 4 eggs for 6 biscuits, and scrambled the eggs with a green onion and 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. I just served the bacon on the side as well as some salsa. I also reheated some of these later, and they reheated very well, individually wrapped in foil on a cookie sheet. These will be a great make ahead meal. Thanks for posting this idea. Made for My-3-Chefs event.
