Build a Better Breakfast Sandwich

Make the traditional breakfast sandwich yum-mazing with some easy twists and Bisquick biscuits.

Biscuit sandwiches are a staple at our breakfast table. When my brothers are around they beg me to make them. Without fail, my brothers will always ask for the traditional bacon, egg and cheese on a fluffy buttermilk biscuit, and since it is so easy to make, I never say no.

Having the same breakfast sammie can get a little dull, so I’ve come up with three twists on the traditional breakfast biscuit sandwich. Plus, for those of you who struggle with pulling breakfast together in the morning, I’ve included a freezer-friendly make-ahead tip!


To get started, you’re going to need to make some biscuits and prep your main ingredients. Bisquick has tons of delicious biscuit recipes, but when mixing things up, I like to use this classic Bisquick Rolled Biscuit recipe.


The classic ham, egg and cheese biscuit is one breakfast sandwich that is just begging for a twist. My idea is to spread a little jam on each biscuit half -- the sweetness of the jam compliments the ham in the best way possible. Around our house these breakfast sammies are known as a Sweet n’ Salty Breakfast Biscuit.


My Dad has fallen in love with The Italiano Breakfast Biscuit. It features some of the best flavors of Italy. The secret to this sandwich is simple; I use spicy Italian sausage instead of breakfast sausage. Then I layer on the egg, cheese, roasted red peppers, a little basil and some provolone cheese. Mama Mia!


It’s hard to make the bacon-y goodness of a bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich better, but I have by adding slices of avocado, grape tomatoes and fresh spinach. This BLT Breakfast Biscuit is absolutely delicious and is my favorite twist!


These are just three ways to change up your morning breakfast sandwich, but these are hundreds more to discover. I’d love to hear how you make your breakfast sandwich one of a kind.

Make-Ahead Tip

To freeze these sandwiches, assemble as directed, but do not melt the cheese and do not make an over-easy egg. If you want to freeze your sandwiches, your egg (both the whites and yolk) should be fully cooked. Once your sandwiches are fully assembled, wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag to freeze. To reheat, take the sandwich directly from the freezer, unwrap the plastic wrap and place in the microwave 1 minute. Check the sandwich and heat more if necessary; every microwave is different.
