Crab Cake Breakfast Biscuits

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, beside having the title of ‘most important meal of’, I love getting the creative culinary juices flowing first thing. Especially since, as a chef (and general food obsessive) I go to bed thinking of food, subsequently dream of food and wake up… starving.

Bonus fact, biscuits have always been that ‘thing’ for me, that sensory memory inducing food and immediately I’m back in the kitchen of either ma, aunt, babysitter or grandma, coated in flour, ‘helping’ them make biscuits. It gives me the warm fuzzies.

Another bonus fact, it is so much fun surprising my husband when I prance into the room and announce ‘We’re having biscuits for breakfast…but not just any biscuits, CRAB CAKE biscuits’ (still coated in flour, decades have not bettered my biscuit making cleanliness). Husband’s eyes get glossy and wide and before he can respond I usually follow up my original proclamation with another proclaiming tidbit like, “yep, you’re a lucky man”.

I’ve listed my 3 favorite crab cake breakfast sandwich recipes, tried and tested on that ‘lucky man’ for widest glossiest expression.

If you’re in need of a homemade biscuit recipe, I’ve found that Southern Living’s Buttermilk Biscuit recipe is top notch. I’ll also never judge if you use store bought freezer biscuits or something out of a can…you do you.

Pro tip: Keep these breakfast ideas in mind if you have leftovers; ham after Easter, collard greens after the BBQ, cooked crab cakes after dinner or sandwich fix-ins after the potluck.
