Biscuit & Potato Egg Scramble Crocks

I visited a flea market years ago and bought three crocks, usually used for making french onion soup. At the time, the purchase was unnecessary, but aren't most items at a flea market unnecessary? I mean, who needs an eight pack of patriotic scrunchies or an assortment of flavored honey from South Dakota? These crocks have survived two moves without seeing the insides of my ovens, except today!

I rarely cook breakfast on work days, because I am always running out of the door wearing one shoe with a toothbrush dangling from the side of my mouth. Today is different, however, because a blizzard is underway, complete with heavy winds and as Doug Kammerer calls "snow pellets". With an abundance of time on my hands, I created a perfect, tummy lovin' morning treat.

Biscuit & Potato Egg Scramble Crocks

3/4 cup Bisquick Baking Mix plus extra for sprinkling

Dash of Salt
Dash of Black Pepper
2 tbsp. 2% Milk

Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick with a rolling pin sprinkled with bisquick
Dip small juice glass with a 2 1/2" diameter in bisquick
Cut dough with juice glass and set aside
