Contrary to how it looks in the above photo, I did not eat five of these Cheddar Chive Biscuits along with three sausages and a pile of scrambled eggs. I had three sausages, a pile of scrambled eggs and TWO biscuits. A girl has to watch her figure you know! lol

As it happens, when we do eat a big breakfast (which isn't all that common around here) we usually don't eat again until dinnertime so I guess in the long run, it all evens out as far as calories go...or maybe that's wishful thinking! Whatever ;)
