Recipe by Dienia B.

This is a pretty vegetarian breakfast to use your hard boiled eggs from Easter. This has green olives in the sauce but I am putting the option of chipped beef in there for people who might not like that combo. You make a figure 8 with the biscuits as a holder for eggs, clever huh? This came from an old Gold Medal Flour flyer number 66 from, I am guessing, the 1950s. I made this and came up with 4 figure eights but mine were thicker.
