Servings: 6Prep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes
10 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
1 pound sliced bacon, diced
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 cups milk
2 cups cubed process American cheese
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups self-rising flour
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
Place eggs in the bottom of a greased 13-inch x 9-inch x 2-inch baking dish. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, discarding all but 1/4 cup drippings. Sprinkle bacon over eggs. Stir flour, salt and pepper into reserved drippings; cook until bubbly. Gradually add milk; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese until melted; pour over eggs.
For biscuits, cut shortening into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk; knead dough gently six to eight times. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter and place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake biscuits and eggs at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Serve eggs over biscuits.
