Biscuit Cups

Breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. These simple biscuit cups can be whipped up quickly in a matter of minutes. Sometimes, I’m just not in the mood for toast and cereal and want a more substantial meal. Not that these little guys are huge, but they hit the spot when you wake up hungry.

Kids love them, too. You can sneak in some veggies and they might not even notice them. My daughter has an eye for veggies so could probably tell what I was doing. She’d be more apt to try this recipe than say, a plate of asparagus. It’s more fun to eat something that is bite sized, don’t you think?
