Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches
Well hello, from California! I’m in California right now, if you didn’t get that from my intro. Ya dummy. I decided to come out here to hang out. Not really. I’m working on a project right now. It’s still a secret project. Ughhh. How annoying is that? I tell you everything. My relationship woes. My body issues. My bodily functions. Ew. That’s gross. And I don’t do that. I’m a lady. But I can’t tell you about this project yet. Wtf? I swear it’s a cool one. And it has to do with you. Which is evenly more cool. So just sit tight. Soon I’ll tell you why I get to bask in California’s beauty very soon. And eat at Trader Joe’s all the time. Damn that place is cheap. Whole Foods, you’re rude. I still like you, but you are just raking in that doe. Swimming in it, actually. Hot tubbing in it. I don’t know what I’m saying at this point. Read this article. It’s funny. It trended the hell out of Facebook yesterday. It be #trendin’.
So, before I left for California, I was stuck in the dilemma of if I should take my car to the airport, pay something like $64 for the time it was there OR have a friend take me and pick me up and pay nothing. You’d think the answer would be clear as day, right? Wrong. Remember last year, when my car was a straight up hooker, getting picked up by any person on the street? Did you get that analogy? I’ll spell it out for you. She was stolen and broken into a few times. Poor girl. My little red 1997 honda civic was in the red light district. Well, that makes me nervous even though I have a different car nowadays. So I decided to pay $64 so my car can be safe at the airport. How sad is that? Kind of funny, but still sad.
I think it’s funny how rare it is to hear from a guy on my blog or on my Facebook. I definitely hear from a couple guys sometimes, mostly married men who are cooking for their family and lovely wife. You lovely humans, you. But not as many straight-up-bros comment on my blog. Sergio and Jake sometimes comment, but Jake usually just comments under the name ‘girlygirl’ and says “omg.yummmmmm” because he thinks only girls read my page. He’s obviously contradicting himself. Either way, I love when guys comment since it’s so rare. But the other day, when I asked on my Facebook what people would say their perfect breakfast sandwich would be consist of, I got at least 5 male comments out of 300. WHOA. New record. My favorite male comment was this one from Chad: “a piece of white bread between two whole wheat slices of bread, with bread pudding, and unfiltered wheat beer to drink.” Haha. We got a funny one.
Now here are the other sandwich combinations I loved in the comments! And some of my own ideas. Thanks for partaking in my Facebook questions. It’s always such a bummer when I take at least 16 seconds to write something and people don’t write back. The work I put into those questions. All that damn work.
- Me: Smoked salmon, arugula, pesto, and a fried egg
- Sergio: Fried chicken (paleo style? sure), bacon and a fried egg
- Me: Prosciutto, asparagus, caramelized onions
- Claire: grilled peaches, gorgonzola, and bacon
- Me: Pork green chile and scrambled eggs
- Brien: Bacon, runny egg, prosciutto, avocado and tomato
- Me: Eggs, bacon, rutabaga hash browns, avocado and tomato
- Nicholas: We do bison and sweet potato hash with avocado
- Me: Cuban hash, a fried egg, and garlic aioli
- Jessica: Smoked salmon, bacon, runny egg, avocado
- Me: Shredded chicken, hot sauce, and a fried egg
- Kat: Eggs, chorizo sweet potato hash, avocado, cheddar cheese, cilantro sour cream.
- Me: pork breakfast sausage, summer squash pancake, and bacon
- Hunter: Bacon, maple syrup, bananas, cinnamon, dark chocolate, 2 eggs, and cheese between two sweet potato pancakes
- Kelly: Chopped liver, crispy pancetta, poached egg, Arugula, Fifty year balsamico.
- Stephanie: mashed sweet potato and pulled pork pattie, runny egg, and bacon
- Melinda: Crab cake (breadless, made w/homemade truffled mayo), caramelized onions, and a fried egg.
- Jill: almond butter, blueberries and banana
- Mandy: I’d take some thick maple bacon, simple scrambled eggs & some sweet potato/onion hash & sandwich it all between some maple syrup covered pancakes.
So if you don’t like my sandwich invention, you got a milli more to choose from. YAY! Now get to sandwich making!
Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches
- Yield: 4 1x
For the innards
- 4–5 pieces of bacon
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, divided
- 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 6 eggs + 4 leftover egg yolks
- 4–5 cups fresh spinach
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/3 cup maple mayo
For the biscuits
- 1 cup almond flour/meal
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 4 egg whites (save the egg yolks for later)
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 tablespoons bacon fat, melted (or butter, ghee, lard, coconut oil, duck fat, etc.)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place bacon on a foil lined baking sheet and place in oven to cook for 15-18 minutes or until cooked to preference. Set aside.
- Now for the biscuits. Sift together almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda and powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- In another bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Pour frothy egg whites into the almond flour mixture bowl and mix well. Then add the 2 whole eggs and bacon fat and whisk together. Place batter in fridge for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the some batter and pour onto the baking sheet. The batter will spread out just a little bit, but should still set up. Make 4 biscuits on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes. If you poke the biscuits, you’ll be able to tell that they are done. Let cool.
- While the biscuits bake, finish the insides for the sandwiches. Place a large sauté pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil along with sliced yellow onions. Let onions cook down until caramelized. They will just need a stir once in a while to keep from sticking to the pan.
- In a medium pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil along with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and a bit of salt and pepper. Cook until spinach is soft and wilted. Set aside.
- In that same pan over medium heat, add 1 more tablespoon of coconut oil. Whisk together eggs and egg yolks and pour into the pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and a bit of salt and pepper. Continuously stir eggs with a spatula until cooked through.
- Once onions, spinach and eggs are done cooking, cut biscuits in half and then start building: bottom biscuit, bacon, spinach egg, caramelized onions, and maple mayo, and top biscuit.

OMG these look amazing.. Saw them on your instagram a few days ago and have been waiting for you to post. Will be making the bisquits tomorrow.. Then will figure out what to put in it. On the WLC and can’t find bacon with no sugar and nitrates..Sad Panda. Where in Cali are ? You enjoying our warm weather?
AppleGateFarms makes THE BEST Sunday bacon. Uncured, no nitrates, nitrites, blah, blah,blah, and its AMAZING!!!
Yay thanks, but where can I get it??
All of the grocery stores here in MA carry Applegate. Use their locator: http://www.applegate.com/locator
Thank you. I went on their website to see where I can get it. I also looked at the ingredients. Unfortunately I can’t have on the whole life challenge..it has evaporated can syrup and I can’t have that;(
You can get bacon from Pete’s Paleo. They will home deliver and there’s no sugar. http://buy.petespaleo.com/petes-paleo-bacon/ It comes in a hunk, I think, so you have to slice it but yum! 😉
Considering faking an illness at work to go home right now and make this for lunch. WHY has maple mayo not been in my life before?!!?
Can biscuits be made ahead of time? How long would you guess they’d keep?
They can but they are much better when you make them right away
This sounds wonderful. Have you tried slicing and then freezing the biscuits? Seems like it ought to be okay.
Nope but I’m sure that would be fine!
you make my dreams come true.
Dumb question of the day….why so many varieties of flour? Can we use just 1-3/4 cups of the same kind, i.e., coconut (which I have on hand)? Think I may also have some almond so could split the 1-3/4 btwn. coconut & almond???
because it worked!! not sure how it would be with different variations
No acknowledgement for my idea 🙁 it’s ok, these were amazing so anything you put in them would be great. Also, can you come home now please?!? Me and our expensive whole foods would like you back.
work on your creativity please and thank you. by the time i get home, i expect a breakfast sandwich made by you this time
Have you seen breaking bad? you gotta watch it. your like walt the genius chemist only you are the genius chemist cook!!! And he cooks too, only it’s drugs lol. Ok this is getting weird but yes you do make dreams come true!!!!
I hope Whole Foods hears you. Thanks for telling them off!
Hi. My name is Gary. I’m a guy (met with silent stares, no applause). And I’m a foodie. And I just found your blog. And I’ll probably come back for more. And I’m making your version of Ropa Vieja for dinner tonight.
Thanks for being there for me.
i’m clapping for Gary!! Gary Gary!
Woooo! Gary! The ladies do the wave.
New to your blog but love to easy recipes. This breakfast sandwich for sure. Totally a guys meal, all in one.
What can I use in place of the. Tapioca flour?
i’m not sure Lori. haven’t made it without the tapioca flour
arrowroot usually subs equally for tapioca
You can almost always substitute arrowroot flour for tapioca. My tummy HATES tapioca but does just fine with arrowroot 🙂
Well as a male of the species I read your blog everyday. I LOVE the recipes and have tried numerous. I am usually the one that cooks in my house (yes I am married for over 23 years).
I have been looking for something different to have for breakfast other than bacon and eggs and this looks good. I am going to have to try it tonight.
Tell Sergio to go to the Denver Biscuit Company. Exam same samich he described, but will BIG ass buttermilk biscuits and country gravy. DAAAAMMMNNNNN! Obviously not Paleo, but I think he’ll live.
EXACT same samich.
That’s why guys never post on your blog. We can’t spell! 🙂
Another Bro here…. Read your blog all the time. Scrambled eggs, Fairy tale egg plant, zucchini, Jalapeno and pablano peppers and bacon on your biscuits….
Since I know I’m no longer the only guy drooling over this I feel its okay to jump in. This looks fantastic, on the menu for mañana! This Maple mayo has series possibilities… serious. Might out pace honey butter and homemade strawberry jam for the awesome award. Keep doing what you’re doing girl.
LOVE that idea! Thanks for the idea, man friend
These look AMAZING. Could I potentially sub in arrowroot flour for the tapioca flour in the biscuits?
as far as i know, that would work!!
Fun you’re in my neck of the woods! Hope you’re enjoying Cali and living it up at TJ’s! These look amazing!
YES! I’m beyond thrilled about the biscuit thing.
PS – new to the paleo awesomeness and diggin’ your blog like crazy.
OMG that Whole Foods article is hilarious and sooo true!! Always end up spending way more $ than I have to purchase some new product or supplement! And feel insecure seeing all the yogi’s with their perfect bodies roaming the aisles lol
Jealous you are in Cali and I have a serious bacon / sandwich craving now! Thanks 🙂
Such mixed reactions from that whole foods articles…sooo funny. It’s good to laugh at yourself, I think.
If you’re in the Bay Area (where I’m at) you should totally check out this Korean restaurant called Jang su jang. It is SO good. You have to get their BBQ short ribs. It’s ridiculously delicious.
BAH. This is PERFECT for teaching during the week. AND I’ve been looking for something practical to use my tapioca flour for.
Question though, how long might these sandwiches keep in the fridge for? (Not like I’ll have many leftovers, they look that delicious).
not sure. they keep just fine, but they taste much better when they are fresh. they take on a little different texture over time
It looks amazing will try this for breakfast tomorrow
Whenever I bake stuff like this, I always make a pile, so that i can freeze it and unfreeze it and it tastes freshly baked w noooo effort. I’m quite sure you can freeze these.
Your buns look amazing, Julie:)
Hi Juli, you are so damm good and funny!
I wanted to know if I can substitute tapioca flour by arrowroot flour..
thanks in advance and paleo kisses from Barcelona, Spain!
Hey Juli – love your blog and look forward to seeing what’s up for dinner every day. My whole family is on the 21SDD. Is tapioca flour allowed on the diet? Need more breakfast ideas and your post yesterday was perfect!
loving the sound of these… am thinking I might have to try making the biscuits the night before though because I am seriously not that organized in the mornings!
Ha ha ha I’m a dude, and I’m commenting on this blog post. New record!! Anyways, I’ll have to agree breakfast sandwiches the bizomb!! Love the recipe. Thanks.
Great looking breakfast, lunch or dinner!! What brand of bacon do you use in your recipes?
Welcome to CA! These are too many shades of yum to name. I’m saving it right now as I’m moving, but these will be done as soon as I can!!
If you’re in the Orange County area there is a place called Chixy Natural in Costa Mesa that has paleo bowls, all natural chicken, salads, etc. The lady that owns it is the bomb.
Jan’s Health Food Bar is right down the street.
Wild Strawberry Cafe in Newport Beach.
Roots Gourmet in Long Beach.
I just want you to know, you are incredible.
yay a guy!!
Daaaaaamn these look tasty! Good call on the Applegate bacon Angela (previous comment), I also like Niman Ranch bacon, it comes in a sheet the size of a brief case! I am interested to use tapioca flour, my wife and I have been sticking with almond and coconut. this could be interesting….
I can’t wait to hear about the secret project!! & OMG, Trader Joe’s is so awesome! Can’t wait to try these biscuits eventually!
Juli – I’m a dude. One of those married cooking for family dudes, but I love your blog and I love your recipes. I send folks to your site on the daily to make sure they get hooked on this Paleo thing. Been dissapointed by paleo biscuits before (not yours, some other clown’s), but these look amazing. Gonna try them out this weekend for the family. I also agree with you on TJ’s. You don’t have to look far with your paleo goggles on to find mucho treasures in there.
yay married dude!!
I’m a guy, and I’m going to eat the hell outta this thing with my mouth.
50 day paleo challenge starts on Saturday!
This is delicious! what a great recipe, I actually used swiss chard instead of spinach and it worked well- worth the effort!
Wow these look DELICIOUS! Im probably gonna add just a small slither of a jalapeno right in the middle just to give it a lil ZING!
Im so glad I found your blog. Loads of tastey recipes to keep me rolling on my paleo diet.
Sooo, I’m allergic to almonds. No almond flour for me. 🙁 Any other options?
you could use cashews and make a cashew flour!
Juli… Thank you!! Thank you!! THANK YOU!! I am a southern-fed girl and I miss breakfast sandwiches AND BISCUITS! I can’t wait to try these biscuits!!
Can I use something in place of the Coconut flour? My daughter can’t process coconut so I don’t like to bring it in to the house…unfortunately. 🙁
I’m not sure how to change the recipe, I haven’t tried that yet
Juli, I’m a huge fan. Thank you for bringing sandwich art back into my life.
Dude here! Living and loving Paleo food and about to pop this biscuit batter into the oven. Boom!
Hey Juli! I’m new to Paleo and have been all over your site for recipes and information. Thanks!!
Do you think you could put these little amazingness together and freeze them? I used to make sausage cheese biscuits, wrap them in freezer paper, and just pop them in the microwave as I go…
i’m really not sure if you could! it’s worth a try
Have you tried Pork Roll (aka Taylors ham?) its a New Jersey/New York breakfast meat but I have been able to find it all over the country. Makes for an AMAZING breakfast sandwich
For those who want another good recipe for biscuits, check out the recipe in the Paleo Comfort Foods book
This is the best biscuit recipe. I have tried several. It is the right consistency, flavor and texture. Also easy to make. I used coconut oil. No bacon fat to use. The oil was great. I need to make my pinch of salt a tad larger. The biscuits were still great the next day also. I highly recommend these!
Great recipe, thanks! Super filling too.
funny you mention you rarely hear from males, a male gave me your link! i have just started taking interested in a paleo diet. im extremely umhealthy and have decided i need a life stlye change. im a cna and was talking to a male nurse about eatting clean nad he told me about you ! hes a fan of your recipes that his wife cooks.
These look divine! Can I make the biscuit batter at night and rest it in the fridge overnight?
I usually wake up hungry even though I have a night snack before bed. It would be nice to have it ready in the morning and just throw them in the oven.
p.s.: Is it only me or is there a problem with rating the recipes? I need to give lemon rasberry pancakes 5 stars, lol!
Hi! These biscuits look fabulous and I can’t wait to try them! I was wondering if you could help me out a bit… I want to make paleo sandwich bread to secretly replace my husband’s wheat loaded bread for his lunches. I have not been successful with recipes yet. What recipe would you suggest??? Thank you!!
you should try against all grain’s sandwich bread. it’s suppose to be amazing!
Awesone recipe! Since July 2013 I have lost 30 lbs switching to the Paleo lifestyle…gained 5 back over this holiday season by sneaking non Paleo snacks….Oops, anyway, I think my crock pot beef stew that is cooking right now would be excellent over these biscuits. I can’t wait to get home and make them!
These look AMAZING! Can’t wait to try them. When I stop being so lazy in the kitchen.
I love reading all of the comments, but why on earth did I read the guy comments to myself in a guy voice? That was weird. Good thing I wasn’t reading them aloud. I’m at work. And now I’m really hungry.
Ok, I decided not to be lazy. Didn’t have all of the ingredients for the sandwich insides, so I only made the biscuits to go with my eggs and sweet potato hash for breakfast yesterday. They were awesome and very filling. Since I’m the only Paleo in my house, I cut the recipe in half and made just 2 biscuits and froze one, which I thawed and ate this morning with breakfast. Perfect. Was just as good as if it were freshly baked. Juli, as always, you rock!
So I tried this recipe a few weeks ago and didn’t really care for it; however, I didn’t “hate” it. The “bread” just seemed flavorless and not what I was hoping for. I started wondering how it would be if I added garlic, basil, oregano and salt and used it as a pizza crust….hmmmmm. Well, I have to say it makes a fantastic pizza crust. My family isn’t 100% paleo, we use cheese, so this makes an amazing low carb/gluten free pizza crust. Thanks for sharing the recipe, even if I didn’t use it as designed. 😉
I tried making this biscuits and they didn’t look anything like yours 🙁 any suggestions?!
not sure…what did they look like?
I love these biscuits! I started using them for PB&J (or almond butter and honey) for my kids and its their new favorite lunch. You have to try them with almond butter and honey!
Holy cow, I just made a batch & now I’m working on the 2nd batch! In the past 5 weeks (since we decided to go paleo) I’ve tried 2 different recipes, all failed horribly, the 3rd time was the charm. Thank you so much for a wonerful recipe, this weekend I’m making a pot of beef stew, your biscuits will be the star attraction 🙂
These Biscuits are AMAZING! I made Asian meatball soup and served these on the side Everyone (even the vegetarians) raved at the look and taste of these biscuits
Thank you so much for sharing!!
I made these and they turned out perfect. I did sub arrow root powder for the tapioca. We have been Paleo for 5 months. Between my wife and I we have lost 95 lbs, however lifting heavy things up and down might have something to do with it. Keep up the strong work. Love the recipes!
I was on vacation and my friends made this taco casserole, it was kinda amazing but in no way paleo and I kept thinking how could I make this paleo… these biscuits make it possible Thanks!!! biscuits plus taco inspired meat of some kind topped with quac instead of cheese 🙂 Excited … Thanks again. love the blog
Thanks Juli for the great recipes on this site! Blog? I’m not sure the term:)
Have you ever made the batter the night before & let it rest in the fridge? It would save time in the crazy rush of getting the kids going etc.
i haven’t. it’s worth a try, but these flours can sometimes thicken up and change over time if they are sitting too long
Okay, I have always wondered…and since you got so many FB comments to this effect, I’m gonna just risk looking stupid and ask it here. How in the heck do you eat RUNNY egg on a SANDWICH? I mean, how does all the yolk not just run out? (Messy sandwiches can still be cool. But then there’s no more egg-yolky goodness ON the sandwich?)
you take pictures early on and really fast haha! But if you could an egg a little longer than over easy, then it will still be runny but not go everywhere as much
This post is a solid year late, but i’ve finally made these biscuits after having them bookmarked on my computer. They were deeeeeelicious!
Thanks for the idea. Will try these out on the fam over the weekend!
You are hilarious and these look amazing! Thank you!!
These were a teeny bit dry, but GREAT! Halved the recipe, and the batter didn’t run at all when I plopped it on the. Cookie sheet- not sure if I was a teeny bit off on the liquid to flour ratio or left them in the fridge a bit over 30 minutes. Regardless, they were perfect for a breakfast sandwich! Thanks for a great recipe!
Currently on the Whole 30 step down and decided to make ANYTHING that looked like bread to make my husband happy.
OH MY GOSH…
this was such a HUGE success!!
I can see so many ways to vary this recipe. I’m thinking maybe rosemary garlic biscuits for dinner on Friday! This is a life time keeper!!
My second time making these biscuits…yummm! A delicious easy recipe
The first time I made these I used arrowroot flour instead of tapioca and butter instead of bacon grease. I found them to be really dense and kind of dry.
The next time I used arrowroot again, 4 tbsp of butter instead of 2, 1 tsp of lemon juice, and a splash of half and half. They came out light and fluffy and butter just soaks right into them. Fantastic.
Also, I meant to give a 4 star rating but my tablet wouldn’t let me click it properly :-\
Awesome! I made this twice already. The first time came out perfectly but the second time it was a bit flat. No problem though because I cut them in half and filled them like you would a pita. Amazing!
Hi Juli – First time posting and I had to tell you that my five year old daughter LOVED this. She is a big carb fiend, so this is a big deal for me to find Paleo recipes that she will eat.
I’ve made 4 of your recipes for breakfasts and dinners so far this week and they are now in my Kid-Tested and Dad-Approved Pinterest board.
We’ve made: Easy Breakfast Casserole, Turkey and Spinach Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, Easy Delicious Breakfast Hash and these Breakfast Sandwiches. All of them were gobbled up by my family.
Thanks so much for your hard work and keep it up!
i love that pinterest board name haha so glad i made the list!!
Tried these tonight. But only had four eggs. So went with four whole eggs. Then didn’t hVe nut flour. So 1 cup tapioca flour and 3/4 cup coconut. DENSE. And yet I am still eating them.
I FINALLY got around to trying this recipe, and it is seriously insane. My husband thinks I am some kind of magician or something. The whole family loved it! Thank you!
I am sorry if you already answered this question but what are the carbs in this biscuit?
Looking forward to making these. How are they stored and for how long? Thank you.
i would keep them in an air tight container for up to 5 days
I have been on a search for a real good biscuit or bread since I became a Paleo foodie, I ‘m going to try this recipe and see what happens, I hope it is as good as as all of you say it is. Being new to this site I have to ask this question, what are some of you ladies doing up in the wee hours of the morning writing comments on this page ???? Zzzquil works for me. Lol
This one…any suggestions to make the biscuits taste more buttery, please? Would adding more butter ruin the consistency?
i don’t know, i haven’t made the biscuits a different way, so i couldn’t tell you!
