Tim Horton's Breakfast Sandwich - Copycat recipe
2 Cups Flour
1 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 cup milk
Pre-heat oven to 450*
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Use a pastry cutter to add in the margarine until it's really nice a crumbly looking. Stir in the milk (dough will be quite sticky).
Flour a flat surface and kneed the dough until soft and workable (flour your hands really well too for this). Roll out about 1/2 inch thick. Use a circle cutter (I use one of my kids plastic cups, about 2'' in diameter) to cut out the biscuits. Place on non-stick sprayed sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. I err on the side of less time to avoid burning and keep the baking sheet on a higher up rack. This recipe makes a dozen biscuits.
The Egg part
Spray a coffee cup with non-stick spray. Crack an egg into it. Mix well. Add a little salt, pepper and parsley flakes to season. Mix. Cook in a microwave for 1 minute on high heat.
Putting the Sandwich together
Cut one biscuit in half. Lay a slice of cheese* on the bottom. Put the egg on top of the cheese. Top with the top half of the biscuit. Enjoy!
*Processed cheese slices are what they use at Tim's. Now that you know what to do at home you can mix it up a bit with different cheeses. Add a slice of ham or bacon if you like.
