Let’s talk back to school.

Those early mornings are filled with anticipation and hunger—for food and knowledge. No matter their age or grade in school, all students have one thing in common—they need a hearty breakfast to start the day off right.

The first day of school is kind of a big deal in my house right now. See, Butters is starting kindergarten. And, as much as I don’t want her to grow up, I’ll do my best to give her the fuel she needs to succeed—breakfast!

For Upside Down Breakfast Stackers, you will need…Upside Down Breakfast Stackers
3 eggs
6 sausage patties
1 pkg. biscuit mix
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

This is a recipe Rhonda in Cherokee County sent me. She sends some pretty tasty recipes. So, of course, I had to try it out for myself. Thanks for another good one, Rhonda!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the biscuits per the package directions, adding a little extra water or milk to thin them out like pancake batter. Set aside.

Next, cook your sausage until cooked through and let cool just a bit. You can beat the eggs while you are waiting for them to cool down.

Now, let’s start assembling. In a sprayed muffin pan, divide the eggs evenly in six cups.

Then, top with a warm sausage patty.

Finish up with the biscuit batter over the sausage and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set.

Finally, once the eggs and biscuits are set, invert the muffin pan onto a plate and out pops the stackers. Top with grated cheese before serving.

It’s a great and tasty way to send your kiddos off to a great first day of school. And there might even be one left for you. Here’s to hoping for straight A’s. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
