Turn the dough over and light press it out to 1 inch thickness. Cut the biscuits using a 2 1/4-inch round cookie cutter.

In a large non-stick saute pan, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the eggs, using a rubber spatula, stir the eggs and cook until the eggs are a soft scramble. Remove from the pan. Slice the biscuits in half and place a spoonful of the eggs in the center of each biscuit.
