Ingredients + Substitutions
- Large biscuits – You will want a can of the larger sized refrigerated biscuits. We will split the dough in half for each one to make 16 total breakfast bombs. You can use any variety- buttermilk, southern style, etc. These all work well in this recipe.
- Scrambled eggs– I like to make these ahead of time. You can do them up to 3 days in advance, or make them fresh in a skillet when you are making this recipe. I just use a little Challenge butter in the pan and the eggs. There is no need to season with salt and pepper since the Challenge Everything spread has so much flavor.
- Cheddar cheese– I use cheddar, but any of your favorite cheeses will work. Try it with colby jack, mozzarella, or even American.
- Breakfast Meat– I most often use sausage links or strips of bacon sliced into bite sized pieces. You could also use ham, Canadian bacon, or even a chopped up chicken nugget!
- Challenge Everything Snack Spread– This stuff makes magic happen! The flavor in this spread is brings the rich taste of an everything bagel to the dish. It combines the flavor of salt, pepper, garlic, and onion in a buttery spread. YUM!
You can also use Challenge Spreadable Butter combined with your favorite Everything bagel seasoning blend.
- Split the biscuits– It may seem counterintuitive to buy the large biscuits then split them in half, but I think it makes preparing the dish quicker and easier. This gives you more surface area without having to roll out each biscuit. By splitting the biscuit you get the perfect bread to filling ratio in each Biscuit Bomb.
- Customize it– You can fill these up with whatever you like. You can use breakfast sausage like we did here, change the meat to something else, or trade it in for veggies like mushrooms or peppers. You can use more cheese, or a combination of ingredients. You can even use different things in each to make them perfect for each person you are feeding. It is up to you!
- Roll it up– This is a little bit of an art. You want to be gentle rolling them up so you don’t get any holes in the biscuit dough. Try not to overfill the biscuit bombs and it will make it easier to close them up. Pinch the edges to seal, and place them seam side down to help ensure none of those great fillings spill out.
- Amp up the Flavor– The Challenge Everything Spread will take these from good to INCREDIBLE! It packs in so much flavor and perfectly compliments the biscuit and breakfast filling. Also, in my experience you don’t need cooking spray in the pan because the buttery spread helps to add flavor and keep them from sticking to the pan.
Recipe Short Cuts
If you need to make this recipe, but are extra short on time, here are a few ideas that can help make this recipe even faster!

- Make the Biscuit Bombs ahead– You can prepare the recipe up to 4 days in advance and then package in a zip top bag, or air tight container. Reheat a couple at a time for breakfast. I use the microwave to do this on busy mornings.
