Brown Sugar Breakfast Biscuits

This is a traditional EASY breakfast from my childhood- I have no idea the origins of the recipe…. but I hope it makes its way to your table! They are a welcomed treat at our house!

Brown Sugar Breakfast Biscuits
1 pkg of 10 buttermilk biscuits (the small tube, they are usually .50 or so)
1/3 c. brown sugar
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp water
1/4 c. chopped pecans or walnuts, opt.
In an 8×8 glass baking dish, or 8-9in glass pie plate put the brown sugar, butter and water. Microwave for 30 seconds then mix with a spoon until blended. Add the nuts.
Take the biscuits out of the package and cut each raw biscuit into 4. Place all the individual pieces into the pie plate or dish and then mix them around until evenly coated. Because microwaves tend to cook from the outside in, arrange the biscuit pieces around the edge evenly making a small open circle in the middle of the dish.
Microwave on hi for about 2.5 minutes (time may be different depending on your microwave).
Remove and invert onto a large plate. Enjoy!
My mom always served these with yummy cheesy scrambled eggs. I think the saltiness of the eggs made for a great compliment for the sweet biscuits. Add a side of 100% juice or milk and you have a great breakfast!!

    Cool, thanks for posting…the origin of the recipe is that a long time ago (about 1989) I taught a 4H class when we lived in the mobile home. It was for microwave cooking. This was one of the recipes in the cookbook. We usually do one minute in the first stage and 3 min. on 80% power in the second stage of the recipe…but like you said, it all depends on the microwave.
