Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuits

Ever since I started taking Synthroid, I’ve had to find quick alternatives for breakfast, or risk going without. I can’t eat for at least an hour after I take the medication, and the longer I go before eating, the better. So I’ve been making a lot of scrambled eggs, breakfast burritos, other egg sandwiches, etc. I need a protein-heavy breakfast, otherwise my stomach’s grumbling by the time I get to work, and my morning break isn’t until 10:00. For a bit of variety this week, I thought I’d make Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuits, as a nod to my days slinging burgers at Mickey Dee’s.

Unlike McDonald’s, I tried to go a bit healthier, although really, there’s not too much that’s healthy about a buttery biscuit, sausage, eggs and cheese. Even still, they’re probably not nearly as bad for you as the traditional fast food variety. While I did use regular cheddar, I did make simple baking powder biscuits:

Ingredients

  • 2 C flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C butter (1 stick), cut into pieces
  • 2/3 C milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 10 eggs
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • hot sauce, optional
  • 8 slices cheese of choice (I used Kraft Medium Cheddar Cracker Cuts)
  • 8 turkey sausage patties

I’ve been using turkey sausage lately…I figure now that I’m on Synthroid if I keep up with a decent diet and exercise, my stagnant weight might begin to come off, finally. But it still could be awhile before my thyroid gets itself regulated, so I’m not expecting miracles right now.
