Bob Evans Coycat Recipe
I remember seeing the biscuit bowls on the menu at Bob Evans a while back and was wondering if they are still serving them. Currently you can get
a Spinach, Bacon & Tomato Biscuit Bowl which is filled with baby spinach, bacon, diced tomatoes, scrambled eggs and home fries then topped with hollandaise sauce, shredded cheddar cheese and scallions or
a Sausage Biscuit Bowl with crumbled sausage, home fries and scrambled eggs topped with sausage gravy, shredded cheddar cheese and scallions.
CHOOSE YOUR FILLINGS (precook before filling the bowls)
- Scrambled Eggs (usually 1 egg per person)
- Southern Fried Hashbrowns (bag of frozen or cut potatoes in small square pieces)
- Bacon (cook in the oven on a wire rack)
- Sausage (fry on stovetop and use drippings to cook gravy)
- Shredded Cheese
- Sausage Gravy (you can find a gravy packet with flour and seasonings in the grocery store near the other dry mixes)
Cover a cookie sheet with foil, place a wire cooling rack on top. Cook bacon in oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until crispy. Place on paper towel to drain.
Fry frozen potatoes in small amount of oil on stovetop, according to directions on package. You can also cut potatoes in small squares.
Cook sausage on stovetop until brown.
Cook gravy in sausage drippings. Use a gravy packet if you are gravy challenged like me or make your own.
Crack eggs in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon milk per egg. Whisk together. Cook.
MAKE THE BOWLS
1 (10.2 oz) can Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits
Place 5 (10 oz.) custard cups upside down on ungreased cookie sheet; spray outsides of cups with cooking spray. Press each biscuit into 5 1/2 inch round. Place 1 round over each custard cup, shaping dough to fit around cup and form bowl shape. Dough should not touch cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Place bread bowls with custard cups on cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. Remove bowls from custard cups.
Notes Don’t have enough 10 oz custard cups? Lightly crush 5 sheets of foil into 5 (4 inch) balls; flatten tops slightly. Place flat sides up on ungreased cookie sheet. Continue as directed above. Remove foil from baked bread bowls, and discard.
