We’re hosting Christmas morning at our house this year and I’ve already figured out that I’m going to need to make a quick and easy breakfast or brunch for everyone! Since I’ll be busy wrangling the twins, I’m going with these Bacon, Sausage & Egg Biscuit Cups. I use Farmer John® Classic Premium Bacon and Farmer John® Classic Pork Sausage Links which are the true stand outs in this recipe! These Bacon, Sausage, & Egg Biscuit Cups are great for serving a larger crowd and are perfect for all levels of cooks (they are seriously so easy and so quick to make) – they bake in just 25 minutes which is perfect for me because during the twins’ first nap, I need to get these prepped and in the oven to start baking, so I can get ready for the day!
Normally, I would make a full brunch spread of bacon, sausage, eggs, waffle casserole, hash browns, etc., but not this year. Nope! Unless someone else offers to cook, this year is going to be a bit simpler with these Bacon, Sausage, and Egg Biscuit Cups served alongside a fruit salad with some orange juice or coffee.
It’s just going to be five adults – me, my husband, my mom (Nana), and my in-laws (Grammy and Grampy) and I think everyone would prefer to focus on the twins (who will probably be more interested in all the boxes and wrapping paper than the actual presents) rather than cooking, baking, and washing dishes.
My first thought was to make these as only Bacon & Egg Biscuit Cups, but my husband LOVES sausage, so in addition to Farmer John Classic Premium Bacon, I also included Farmer John Classic Pork Sausage Links within the biscuit cups as well.
While I was making these, I only had 6 of the baking cups, so I had 2 biscuits, 2 sausages, and 2 slices of bacon left over. My father-in-law was overjoyed when I said he could sample the leftovers! He loved the slight thyme flavoring I added to the sausage while cooking and remarked on how tender and juicy it was!
I think it is perfectly acceptable for the cook to be able to eat any of the crispy pieces of bacon that “accidentally” fall off the finished biscuits when they are removed from their glass cups or baking sheet! Do you graze while you cook? Sometimes I do so much grazing that I don’t even need to eat the cooked meal!
Also, it is pure luck that any of these biscuits have ANY bacon left on them!
I decided to serve my Bacon, Sausage & Egg Biscuit Cups with a side of jalapeño jelly, avocado, and honey! So good!

I used Farmer John Classic Premium Bacon and Farmer John Classic Pork Sausage Links, but you could switch it up and use the Farmer John Maple Pork Sausage Links or Farmer John Old-Fashioned Maple Bacon which is made with real maple syrup, or Farmer John Lower Sodium Bacon which has 30% less sodium per serving, but with all the same delicious flavor. And all of these great flavors are available in the meat department at Ralphs, Ralphs Fresh Fare, Ralphs Marketplace, Foods Co. and Food 4 Less.
