In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg, milk, and yogurt together.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; pour in the liquid
ingredients and stir lightly. When there are only a few traces of
the dry ingredients visible, fold in the blueberries.
Using about 1/4 cup of the batter for each biscuit, drop evenly spaced
mounds onto the prepared baking sheet.
