Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich

Last night was a late night for my hubby and me. We went out with family to dinner at Ca De Sol in Toluca Lake. Delicious gnocchi and worth a trip if you're in the LA area. The outside seating is really charming. After dinner we went to see Sourcecode which was entertaining although I don't think it deserved the rave reviews I had read. Has anybody else seen it? What did you think? I didn't get to bed until around 1 in the morning so breakfast needed to be simple today. Which brings me to....Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches.
I recently received a cookbook for free to review called The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches by Susan Russo. Page 28 has a craving inducing photo of ham and mustard on biscuits. Simple and so yummy.
I served the sandwiches with scrambled eggs and sliced strawberries. With a latte on the side, of course. I should also note that I substituted turkey "ham" for regular piggy ham. I've been trying to cut down on the pork products since we've been going through way too much bacon lately.
I was too lazy to make my own biscuits, so I used this kind from Pillsbury. They turned out light and fluffy. I'll definitely be buying them again and they don't have any of the junk in them like the other biscuits tins at the market.
You can find Russo's book on and many other book sellers. I hope you'll check it out. Next up, I'll be making Hot Brown Sandwich on page 136, so I'll let you know how it turns out.

  1. I've never put mustard on a ham biscuit. Sounds like I need to get a copy of that book.

  2. Andy and I have been eating too much pork (in the form of bacon) lately as well. We just bought turkey bacon from Trader Joe's and it's so delicious!

  3. Yum! That sandwich looks delish!


  4. I went to the movies last night and when we were looking through the movie times I asked mike, "what the heck is source code??" clearly I"m behind. We saw Red Riding Hood...yikes, don't see it unless it's a free rental

  5. Mmm, now that is my kind of breakfast! Looks delicious. Great job!

  6. Oh, Danielle. There's no such THING as too much bacon! Where did you hear something crazy like that??
