  • 1 can (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits (8 Count)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar
  • 2 tablespoons cream or half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup carnitas
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2
    Arrange biscuits on baking sheet. Press the bottom of a 2 1/2” cup into the center of each biscuit, creating a “nest.” Mold dough around the glass as needed to create a deep indentation surrounded by even edges.
  • 3
    Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, press down the center of the biscuits once more, and return to oven to bake for 10-12 minutes more, until golden.
  • 4
    On the stovetop, scramble together eggs, cheddar, cream, salt and pepper. Warm carnitas in microwave or on the stovetop.
  • 5
    Fill warm biscuit nests with scrambled eggs, top with carnitas and salsa. Garnish with cilantro.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Remove dough from the fridge 15 minutes before using for best results. Using a slightly warmer dough makes it easier to mold the nests.
