  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. On ungreased cookie sheet, arrange biscuits with sides touching. Bake 19 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 2
    Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; place rack in pan. Arrange 8 slices thick-cut maple bacon on rack. In small dish, mix brown sugar and water; spread over bacon.
  • 3
    Bake 20 minutes or until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels.
  • 4
    Cook eggs as desired. (I like mine over-easy. To do this, lightly spray skillet or griddle with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Once hot, crack egg into skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook about 1 minute; flip and season again. Cook 1 minute longer.)
  • 5
    On each bottom biscuit half, layer several fresh baby spinach leaves, several slices of 1 avocado, 1 tomato slice, 1 cooked egg and 1 slice of bacon. Cover with top biscuit halves. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • To prevent bacon strips from shrinking too much during baking, try rinsing the bacon in water and patting dry.
  • Add more maple flavor to the bacon by substituting the tablespoon of water with 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Add a teaspoon of water if needed to reach a spreadable consistency.
  • *Pasteurized eggs are uncooked eggs that have been heat-treated to kill bacteria which can cause food poisoning and gastrointestinal distress. Because the eggs in this recipe are not cooked, be sure to use pasteurized eggs. They can be found in the dairy case at large supermarkets.
