Today I am going to share one of the best snacks “Egg in a biscuit”. It is an American cuisine. It is just like biscuit sandwich still different snack recipe. From the outside it may not be much to look but when the fluffy cheddar and chive biscuit parts a soft boiled egg comes out with the molten gold core. This amazingly magical biscuit is perfect for the breakfast. At the first bite of the biscuit give you a buttery and crumbly surprise and this was a pretty good start. And the second bite gives you a hard boil egg with melted yolk at the center that just amazing experience to taste this heavenly good biscuit!
