Once you assemble the biscuits, you can dip them in an egg milk mixture and cook them in a skillet like french toast

    Oh how I wish I had a Monte Cristo biscuit this morning! I love how you weaved your witchy kitchen magic for an easy creation of them in a casserole/oven version, no cauldron required! My sister is coming for a visit next weekend and I’m trying decide what’s on the menu. I’m putting this on my list, thanks Jenna 🙂

    Jenna, this is swoon worthy! Definitely going to be making them. I had to laugh when you said you resisted these plates from Home Goods – I should have! Need to have a plate give away and get rid of some of the old ones. I wanted more so I could serve them to the kids but got 12 large and 8 small and that will do for now!
