Buttermilk Biscuit and Egg Breakfast Cobbler
Buttermilk Biscuit and Egg Breakfast Cobbler recipe is the perfect egg dish for breakfast, brunch or dinner! This casserole has all the best breakfast flavors and would be great for Mother’s day brunch or overnight house guests.
I have a good “bloggie” friend of mine named Melissa who has an amazing blog called Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen and she shared this buttermilk biscuit and egg breakfast cobbler on there quite a while ago (She called it a cute name: “Giddy up and Go Cobbler”). It had been on my radar for a ridiculous amount of time and I finally took the time to make it. I knew it was going to be a huge hit, especially with my breakfast-loving husband. You should really check out her blog – her recipes make me drool! I like Southern cooking more than any other type of cooking so her recipes really speak to me – she is a fabulous southern cook!
This breakfast cobbler will be made over and over again and it was SO easy to put together and makes for a delicious weekend breakfast with the family. I only wish I had tried it sooner! Oh, and I served it with these delicious Blueberry Banana Almond Smoothies.
