These were actually pretty quick and easy to make. To save on time and trouble, I added a small amount of garlic powder (not garlic salt) to the egg mixture before cooking. I also didn't bother buttering the biscuits. I'm sure it's good that way, but for the amount of time involved in buttering and salting all those biscuits, I just felt it was easier (and a tiny bit healthier) to skip the butter and add garlic powder to the egg mixture instead. I also drained the sausage before adding in the eggs. There was still plenty of grease on the pan to keep the eggs from sticking. I think if I hadn't poured off the excess fat, these would have turned out too "heavy" for me. I also used American cheese singles for this, because I had a bunch of them on hand, and it was easy to just fold the cheese slices into quarters. When adding the eggs to the sausage mix, I stirred the mixture gently a couple of time while it was cooking, just to get it to cook evenly. When it was mostly cooked (but still just a bit wet), I removed it from the heat and covered the pan with a lid to finish cooking. The eggs hold together well this way, making it quick and easy to assemble the sandwiches. I love breakfast sandwiches, but since they aren't too healthy, I don't often have them. I thought this recipe was a nice (and economical) compromise that allowed me to have the sausage flavor without actually having an entire slice of sausage on each biscuit. It's still not diet food, but it is less fat than a traditional sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit! Good recipe. I liked this one a lot. Will definitely make it again!

I made a batch of these for a friend of mine. Of course, we had to sneak a couple of them. I also used English muffins and I am glad that I did. I am getting ready to make these again. I really liked that they came together so fast.

These are pretty good. Everyone in my family agreed that they would much rather have a different cheese. So next time I will not use sharp cheddar. They do seem pretty greasy when reheated. I did use English muffins instead of refrigerated biscuits as none of us really care for those. I ended up using 1 tsp. dry mustard and 3/4 tsp. pepper since I wasn't sure of what amounts to use as this was my first time making these. I will probably stick with this amount for future use. I was able to make 28 sandwiches.

The whole family absolutely loves these. They are so easy to heat one up and eat on the way to work. I was a little concerned that the egg filling might be a little messy, but it's not at all, the cheese really does glue everything together. I have made these using sausage, reg. bacon, maple bacon, and diced ham and I really like the maple bacon, it gives these a great flavor. Thanks, NebraskaGirl, these are a lifesaver.

I only made 1/4 of the recipe because my husband is a VERY picky eater. He goes to work at 5 am, so it's hard to get my lazy bum up to make him breakfast, so I thought these would be a good idea. I have gotten premade ones at the store, but my husband doesn't really like them because the egg texture turns him off. It made exactly 8 biscuits with no left over egg mixture, and I only put cheese in half of them. I put each sandwich in individual foodsaver bags with cooking instructions written on each bag. My husband ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM! Thanks so much for the idea.

Tasty breakfast sandwich! I used crumbled cooked bacon instead of the sausage and american cheese. I liked the flavor the mustard gave the eggs. Nice quick breakfast on the go - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Meh. There was nothing particularly special or good about this recipe. Pretty basic. Make your meat, and eggs, throw 'em on a biscuit or english muffin with some cheese and freeze for later.

They were pretty bland, from the seasoning to the cheese. Get real greasy when you heat them up. Pretty messy to eat like in the car on the way to work or anything.

We used small biscuits and made them more of "bite-sized" snacks. We all loved them! Will definitely make again.

These are GREAT. There is just the two of us so I only made a quarter of the recipe and they turned out great and we just love them. This recipe is a keeper. No need to change a thing. Try them, you'll like them.
