Old Bay Egg & Cheese Biscuits

Old Bay

It’s a blizzard outside! Since Winter Storm Jonas cleared out my entire day (besides wedding planning, of course), I wanted to make a delicious breakfast that reminded me of Maryland, and nothing says home like food made with Old Bay!

Ever since I moved to New York City, I’ve been really missing 2 things, biscuits and Old Bay. I mean, people here use Old Bay, but nobody quite uses it correctly. So last night I went out and grabbed some southern style biscuits and planned on making some Old Bay Egg & Cheese Biscuits. The Old Bay and spices warm you up on the inside and buttered biscuits are the definition of comfort food, perfect for a day in.

I hope you enjoy the recipe, let us know how you like it!
