Help! It’s Canned Biscuit Overload!

So I have this rule that I won’t buy refrigerated biscuit dough unless it’s $0.05 or less per can. Well, with the catalina, sale, and coupons this week, they almost paid me to take these biscuits home, so I bought them.

But what was I thinking? We don’t normally eat many canned biscuits (no offense to those of you who do, but we really prefer homemade!) and now I have 12 entire cans of biscuits sitting in my fridge.

Help! What are your most creative ideas for using up canned biscuits? I’m planning to make some of them into Brown Sugar Biscuit Twists, but beyond that, I’m stumped.

    • @Cara @ Health Home and Happiness, hit submit before I was done… I like to donate stuff like this just because it’s something low income families are familiar with and are sure to use.

      • brc says:

        @Cara @ Health Home and Happiness,

        I can understand wanting to donate, but never pegged certain foods as things that “low income” families are familiar with. I’m sure you didn’t intend it that way, but it sounds bad. I think “low income” families are also familiar with fruits and vegetables! And they even know how to make things from scratch!

        • I’m just talking about what food tends to be in ‘high demand’ at our local rescue mission. That’s all. Based on my experience working with women on wic and in the rescue mission, the majority would rather have canned biscuits rather than whole wheat flour.. Of course there are exceptions, I’m just saying that it would likely be appreciated and used.

        • Ella says:

          @brc, I agree with you. I think whether or not you have money doesn’t determine whether you like to cook homemade biscuits or not. We are a “low income” family at the moment and I was offended by your comments Cara. Like because we’re low income we must be lazy and appreciate frozen food over real ingredients? That’s pretty stereotypical.

        • Pamela says:

          brc, Thank you for speaking up regarding Cara’s comment. I am a WIC mom, and was a bit taken aback by her original comment. Incidently, I would take whole wheat flour over canned biscuits any day! Broad generalizations about people (including us “low income” folk) are rarely helpful. I’m just grateful that sites like MSM are available to us all. I’ve learned a great deal from reading here.

        • Pamela says:

          Might I also add, in response to Cara’s comment about what “low income families are familiar with,” that we are familiar with the same things with which the rest of you are familiar! In this season of life, while my husband and I are both PhD students, we are grateful for the services of WIC. Someday, we hope to give back generously to those who have given so much to us. Many thanks to MSM, which has been instrumental in our vision to be savers and givers.

    • LJ says:

      @Cara @ Health Home and Happiness,

      each biscuit canned be easily rolled out into a mini-pizza. let the kids help roll them and add personalized toppings for a simple “make your own mini-pizza” snack or supper. try it! ~

      • Caroline says:

        @LJ, I just did this tonight with one of my free cans. It’s best if you bake the “crust” first, until browned, then add the toppings and put it back into the oven to melt the cheese. I have tried it the other way and it took forever to bake and was still a little mushy in the middle. My four year old loves this. One can makes enough for everyone to have one pizza and one cinnamon and sugar treat (press the dough flat, spray with freebie “I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter”, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake. Yum!

    • Sarah says:

      @Cara @ Health Home and Happiness, Monkey Bread! Each loaf takes I think 3 cans and it’s delish!

  • Angela says:

    I like to make Italian Herb Pull Apart Bread! It’s just a stick of butter, Italian season, and 2 cloves of garlic in a pan. Cut up the biscuits, stir them into the melted butter, seasoning, and garlic, and throw the pan into the oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown! DELICIOUS! 🙂

  • Sylvia says:

    How about chicken and dumplins. Yummy

  • Lee Ann says:

    Great toppers for chicken pot pie

    • maygan says:

      @Lee Ann, we do this too! I think I saw it on a cooking show years ago, individual pot pies (in mugs/half pint mason jars) and you top each one with a biscuit!

  • Myra says:

    We love monkey bread baked in a tube or bundt pan. Cut each biscuit into 1/4ths and then dip in melted butter. Then roll each piece in a cinnamon, sugar and finely chopped nut mixture. Add to pan. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes (until biscuits are done.) Enjoy!!!

    • Lydia says:

      @Myra, I was going to suggest the same thing. I’ve never dipped mine in butter though. My favorite version goes like this: cut biscuits into 1/4’s, toss in a bag with 2 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup sugar, and then put into a greased bundt pan with raisins or nuts or both. On the stove, mix 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar until smooth. Pour over the bread, and bake @350 for 35 minutes.

  • Jane says:

    Poke a hole in the center of each biscuit. Put some shortening or oil in a skillet, and heat on medium heat until the oil is sizzling. Drop the biscuits, with the hole in the center, into the oil. Cook until lightly golden brown on each side. Place on a plate with paper towels to drain the grease. Mix confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and a couple of teaspoons of water to make icing. Dip the doughnuts in the icing. (you can add cocoa to make chocolate icing or pumpkin pie spice to make spiced doughnuts)

  • Lee Ann says:

    Oh ya, and monkey bread! Yum! Bake it then freeze it if you don’t need it right away.

  • T2Nashville says:

    Monkey bread! Casseroles, like shepherd’s pie – makes a great topping for chicken pot pie. These make great pie crusts, too, for individual baked apple pies.

  • Oh my friend…I am your woman!! I have a bunch!!
    This tastes completely homemade.

    This will be SO fun to do with the girls. Just use the biscuits and roll instead of the crescent rolls.

    I also do a ton of meatloaf muffins using the biscuits as the “crust.” Push them down in the tin, and up the sides. Then put the meatloaf mixture in the top, sprinkle with cheese and bake. Perfect for leftovers….lunch. You can use already cooked seasoned taco meat and make them Mexican style…then bake a shorter time or the raw meatloaf mix as well.

    Hope that helps….I have more if you need them. 🙂

    • @Jen@balancing Beauty and Bedlam, ok and one more idea if you want to do something really special but ultra bad for you since you have to fry them…
      Have you ever been to a Chinese restaurant and tried their donuts that are melt in your mouth good? Well, I happened to see them making them once and they just pop canned biscuits into the deep fryer, then roll in cinn/sugar mixture. I do this now when we have teen parties for the kids and they think it’s the best thing ever. You could obviously do it healthier and use healthy oil and do it over the stove. 🙂 (Can you tell, I stockpiled these as well a little bit ago?)

    • Laura C says:

      @Jen@balancing Beauty and Bedlam,

      You can also use the muffin tin way to make mini Shepards pie and what we call BBQ nests. Fill the spot with bbq pulled pork. Looks just like little bird nests

      • Susan says:

        I haven’t read all the comments so I’m not sure if anyone put this on or not but… I take cooked bacon eggs cheese sausage onions peppers mix it all together, make a (small amount) of gravy. Flatten the biscuits spread a little gravy, place about a tablespoon of the mixture in the middle, bring the edges together give it a little twist (make sure all seams are pinched together) roll to make a ball. Brush with a mixture of milk, garlic Parmesan cheese and parsley flakes. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. There you have breakfast stuffed biscuits. So DELISH!!

  • Holly says:

    I just saw a really good recipe from Wisdom Begun this morning for Bubble Pizza. I was wishing I had some canned biscuits after I read it:) Your girls could make it!! Here’s a link to Kelly’s post on it:

    • Amanda H. says:


      I was going to suggest that! I make the same thing except I just pour the sauce in and put pepperonis over it, then the cheese. Yummy and SOOOO easy!!

  • Misty Fraley says:

    Monkey Bread! It is so good and would use a few cans.

  • sally says:

    biscuit pizzas!

  • Lisa says:

    Canned biscuits, better known around my house is “womp biscuits”. That’s the sound the can makes when you open it….you’ll see!! You can make monkey bread, pigs in a blanket, tear them apart and they make really fluffy dumplings. Tonight, I am making chicken pot pie, pouring the mixture over the cooked biscuits; breakfast sandwiches, cook then, save them in a ziploc, open them, butter them and put them under the broiler for a few minutes and they make great “toast”!

    • alianora says:


      it makes me so happy to know that i am not the only one who calls them womp biscuits! The first time I tried to tell my then boyfriend to pick some up, he stared at me in complete confusion.

  • Kristin says:

    Could you give me your recipe for homemade biscuits? I’ve tried some different ones and haven’t been impressed. I’d love to have a good one under my belt! Thanks!

  • oh, oh…I don’t think my comment saved – bummer!

  • Amy says:

    A friend of mine makes what she calls ‘bonuts’. Cut out a hole in the middle, then fry them in hot oil like donuts.

  • Tina Malone says:

    Not very healthy but, I love canned biscuits deep fried then sprinkled with powdered sugar. Mmm…

  • Debra says:

    I’ve been wrapping them around the cheap Oscar Meyer hotdogs I got last week, and making “biscuit dogs”

    Sometimes I add a bit of cheese, usually I add some ketchup and mustard. The kids love ’em.

  • jess says:

    Roll them out into flat circles. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of jelly. Fold them over and press together the edges. Spread melted butter/margarine over the outside. Sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar/brown sugar. Bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes. Voila, cheap turnover pastries.

  • Challice says:


    Take a container lid (Lawrys might be a bit big… and a salt shaker maybe too small for that size) anyway, “cut” a hole out. Heat some olive oil up in a saucepan. Fry your donuts for about 30 second on each side. Dip in cinnamon sugar/powder sugar or eat plain.

    YUMMM. This was always a birthday breakfast treat!

  • Ellen says:

    monkey bread is a great idea! I also have a friend that flattens out the biscuits a little and uses them for little pizza crusts for a quick and easy lunch for the kids.

  • Jaime says:

    I haven’t used the biscuits for this but I know it works really well with the crescent dough so might be worth a try. Pot of Gold was a soup we made at Girl Scout camp when I was a kid. It is tomato soup, hamburger and rice balls, and chunks of cheese wrapped in crescent dough! So good! I don’t eat meat or cheese often anymore so I’ve adapted it to be a little healthier: tomato soup, brown rice, garbanzos, kidney beans, black beans, and little balls of the crescent dough! It’s the ultimate comfort food for me. 🙂

  • Julie M says:

    I make a breakfast treat that we call “yummy buns”. Cut the biscuits into fourths and put into a 11×17 pan. Pour on heavy cream and generously top with brown sugar. Bake until they are bubbly. It’s best to put the pan onto a cookie sheet in case they bubble over in the oven.

  • Joan says:

    We like to fry them in oil then after draining, coat with powdered sugar.

    Or, poke a hole in each, fry like donuts, and cover with cinnamin-sugar.

  • Melanie says:

    Empty Tomb Biscuits….my kids love this and an easy way to teach the Easter story!

  • christen says:

    Monkey bread would be my fav too, but I’ve also used them to make biscuit bowls. Just spray the outside of pyrex bowls and form the biscuits over them. Bake. Fill with your favorite filling. We like chicken taco filling. 😉

  • They work well in one of my favorite Freezer Meals. It’s called Breakfast Casserole. Here’s a pictorial including the recipe.

  • Sarah says:

    You can flatten them out and make little pizzas. If they are layer biscuits, you can separate layers, press them into muffin tins, fill with taco meat or sloppy joe mixture, top with cheese & bake. Personally, I’m liking the Italian Pull-apart idea at the top of the comments!

  • Jess says:

    I second the donuts. They are delicious drizzled with butter and honey.

    I grew up eating “wompp biscuits” on Sunday mornings for breakfast before church, and the donuts were always a special treat. 🙂 Even if not exactly healthy…

  • Felecia says:

    Little fried apple pies….roll them flat put a small scoop canned apple pie filling in the center…close the edges by pressing with a fork…deep fry @ 350 until golden brown sprinkle with powdered sugar….they can be baked also to be less fattening.

  • Karen says:

    This is the perfect time to make Resurrection Rolls. They are fun, delicious, and are a great pictorial of the true Easter story. The recipe calls for crescent rolls, but canned biscuits would work just as well.

  • Melissa B. says:

    Anyone that has ever been to a Pampered Chef party knows the “Bubble Up Pizza” recipe! 😀 I would make that! Yummy and so easy! 😀

  • Shannon says:

    Monkey bread can be sweet or savory. Though a savory “monkey bread” is usually called pull-apart bread. Garlic and butter is good with any pasta dish. Chicken and dumplings is great too. Roll them out flat and make pizzas with them.

  • Jamie says:

    We don’t buy them very often either, but when we do they almost always get made into donuts! (and are inhaled almost immediately)

  • Rose Atwater says:

    Okay, so I know this is not a healthy option, but I cut them into fourths & fry them in vegetable oil. Then I mix a little milk or water with some confectioners sugar to make a syrup and drizzle it over them. They’re like homemade donut holes…SUPER yummy!

    We also press them into a muffin pan, fill with seasoned ground beef, carrots, & mashed potatoes on top (all the fillings already cooked), top with shredded cheese and bake for about 15 minutes….they’re little mini shephards pies!

  • Katie says:

    We love to use them to make individual pizzas. Mash them down a bit and bake them for 5 min (at whatever temp the can says), pull them out, top them with favorite sauces and toppings then bake for another 5-8 min. They are great for sleepovers!!

  • Sara C says:

    Taco Cups. We normally use the small size vs the Grands, but if you have larger muffin tins these would work too.

  • LisaM says:

    Back in January I saw a recipe in the coupon insert for pigs in a blanket using crescent dough. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work if you pull apart the biscuits, wrap them around some sausage links and pop them in at 375 for about 15 minutes. (The recipe was for Hillshire Farm Lil’ Smokies Cocktail Links.)

  • I cut them in 1/2, dip in butter – sugar – and cinnamon, and bake. Sinful, really.

    Donating is a great idea, if you can find a place to take perishables.

  • Julie says:

    We use them to make monkey bread. Cut up biscuits from 2-3 cans into quarters. Roll them in cinnamon sugar. Put them in a greased tube pan. In a separate pan boil 1 stick of butter or margarine and 1 cup of brown sugar. Pour it over the cinnamon sugar biscuit pieces and bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. This is one of those special treat breakfasts!!!

  • Ashley says:

    I second the pigs in a blanket idea.

    I have also pressed them into the bottom and up the sides of muffin pans to make a little shell. Fill the shell with cooked ground beef and barbecue sauce and top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 till done. These are good and easy. They can also be frozen after they are cooked and then reheated later. Makes a quick lunch to pull out one or two from the freezer.

  • dana says:

    There are some good chicken pot pie recipes that use canned biscuits as the topping. I have a recipe and can email it to you if you would like me to.

  • Jessica says:

    The Pillsbury website has lots of great recipe ideas.

  • Angie says:

    Egg casserole! Line a 9×13 pan with biscuits. Squish them around to mostly fill the bottom. Wisk together eggs, milk, sour cream, dry mustard and shredded cheese in whatever amounts strike your fancy. Cook at 350 until set, usually about 30 minutes.

    We also love sausage gravy over biscuits. Or eggs, bacon or sausage and cheese on biscuits as a sandwich.

  • maygan says:

    My mom used to make us a veggie pizza with crescent rolls as a special treat when we were kids- it’s fun and yummy! Ours was like this, minus the bacon:,1626,145170-249194,00.html

  • Jessica says:

    LOTS of great ideas already….here’s another:

    Roll each biscuit very thin, fill with your favorite meat and veggie mixture (or, for breakfast: eggs and bacon and cheese) and you have mini “to go” pockets – they freeze well too, once baked! 🙂

    • Sheila says:

      @Jessica, we like to roll them out a bit and fill with any and all kinds of leftovers and bake them up for a fun twist on leftovers. We call them “bundles.” One of my faves is some chicken, cream cheese and veggies.

  • maria says:

    all of the above plus appleturnovers homemade. Basically you just flatten each ind. biscuit, then add canned apples or fresh, spinkle brown sugar inside, close the seams like a turnover, and brush melted butter on top + more cinimmon sugar


  • Melissa says:

    I use them to make pizza. I cut everything up real small and have the kids make their own pizzas. The flaky layers biscuits are the best for this, but any will work you’ll just need flatten it out. I use everything from mushrooms to pepperoni to onions and so on, cut up small. The kids love it because they can make their own pizza!

  • Diane says:

    Similar to monkey bread – you can make homemade cinnamon rolls. Roll the biscuits to look like a breadstick, then dip in melted butter and cinnamon sugar. Bake in the oven.

    You can also make mini pot pies with them. Press the biscuits into a muffin pan and fill with leftover meat and veggies of some sort. Bake them and you have individual servings for dinner.

  • I would have the same problem! lol I don’t think I’ve ever used a can of biscuits before in my life…I’m a homemade biscuit snob like you.

  • virginia says:

    Make 2 cans of tuna, the way you prefer. I add mayo, pepper, chopped onion and celery and mix. Once muffins are baked make a hole on top about 1/4″ smaller than the size of the biscuits (kinda like a bowl), and stuff with your tuna, replace the top and serve with salad. It’s a yummy quick lunch. The two cans of tuna usually make about 8 biscuits if you don’t overstuff.

  • Bonnie says:

    I used to make Chicken Squares that has cream cheese and seasonings baked inside the rolls, very yummy. Or another pampered Chef receipe that usually uses cresent rolls, taco ring. You bake the meat and refried beans inside the rolls shaped into a ring then put taco salad makings in the middle.

  • Kelli says:

    I used them instead of the toast or bread in a Pot Roast Sandwhich. Considering they are smothered in yummy roast, gravy, and veggies, I don’t think you will mind that they aren’t homemade.

  • Kristin says:

    I pretty much have the same policy about canned biscuits and rolls. But it’s hard to pass on free food. We use this type of biscuits as a topping for shepherd’s pie instead of the mashed potatoes. I have also used them for chicken, biscuits and gravy. Make chicken (or turkey) gravy, add some shredded chicken and pour over the baked biscuits split in half. I add some veggies to the gravy, too. Peas and carrots (canned or frozen veggies that have been thawed) work nicely.

  • Jenny B. says:

    I myself don’t have any recipes but you should check out Sandra Lee from food network, she is the queen of refrigerated biscuit recipes.

  • Marlana says:

    Use them for Chicken and Dumpings. Cook them them butter, chicken broth, pepper, chicken, ect, ect, (use whatever you normally put them in– just substitute biscuits for the tortillas), and you all will LOVE IT.

  • brittany says:

    I made taco melts and they turned out great! were a HUGE hit with the kids and super easy and quick to make.

  • Dana says:

    Ooh, press them out on a cookie sheet and use as pizza dough. Yum, yum, yum.

  • Marlana says:

    oh, and lol. Krogers paid us money for them.

  • Heather Nothnagel says:

    I didn’t read the comments so sorry if this is a repeat….
    We like to make homemade doughnuts out of them. Just cut them in quarters and deep fry them until done. Put them in a baggie and shake with some sugar….yummy! 🙂 And a special treat too!

  • Suzanne says:

    Where did you get them so cheap?

  • Jerri says:

    Roll them out on a cookie sheet (pretty thin) then bake til almost done. Top with pizza sauce & your favorite pizza toppings and put them back in the oven for a few minutes. Makes a quick & yummy lunch or dinner!!

  • Rebecca M. says:

    Someone at my church just made this and gave me the recipe. It’s delicious, and the canned biscuits make it easy!

    Orange Bread Ring

    3/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    3 T grated orange rinds (about 2 oranges)
    2 can buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits in each can) —separated into halves
    4oz cream cheese, cut into 20 squares
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
    2 T orange juice

    Combine sugar, chopped pecans, orange rinds. Place a cream cheese square in the middle of each biscuit half and roll into ball. Dip in butter and dredge in sugar mixture. Stand biscuits on edge in greased bundt pan. Drizzle with remaining butter. Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Invert immediately on serving plate. Combine powered sugar and orange juice and drizzle over warm bread. Serve immediately.


  • Suzanne says:

    This recipe is really quick and easy. I substitute Morningstar Farms chik patties for the chicken cubes and it’s so yummy!

  • Jessica C says:

    We like to use them for breakfast for dinner and make biscuits and gravy. Just make a homemade white sauce, season it with sausage-type seasonings (sage, salt and pepper is all I used the last time I made it) and toss in some cooked crumbled sausage if you have it (I like to use Morningstar Farms patties for this). Like many of the other things listed here, its not exactly healthy but it will put your biscuits to good use!

    I’ve also made the Taco Cups mentioned a few comments back and I can vouch that they are goooood 🙂

  • Jill says:


    Cook ground beef or turkey (or combo!) and onions in a skillet. Add some velveeta or shredded cheese (whatever you have!) and stir.

    Open some biscuits and roll into a 6″ circle. Scoop some beef mix in the middle and then fold up like a tube. Place seam side down and bake for 11-12 minutes at 350.

    Serve with ketchup and mustard to dip into.

    My kids LOVE this recipe!


  • Suzanne says:

    I clicked submit before pasting the link. Here it is:

  • Rebecca says:

    I did not read everyone’s ideas above, but you can make:
    –let your children make their own pizzas out of them
    –mash them out, tear into pieces, cook as dumplings

  • Megan H. says:

    My mom just posted a few recipes on her blog using canned biscuits. Here is a link:
    We love her little pizzas, and I am looking forward to trying the flat breads.

  • MaryBeth says:

    I grew up using them to make “peek-a-boos”. My husband calls them sliders.

    Brown hamburger patties that are small enough to fit on a flattened biscuit. I always cook them on a george forman to help cut out the grease. Too much grease can “eat” away at the biscuit. Once they are done, place them on 1 of the biscuits, and cover them with a second biscuit. Pinch the 2 biscuit layers together to enclose the meat. For my husband, I put cheese in with the hamburger (I don’t eat cheese.) Cook them following the directions on the package. We’ve also done it with turkey and ham. Delicious and was always one of my favorites from school lunches in elementary schoool. Oh, and like everyone else, I love monkey bread with the biscuits, but they are a Christmas tradition here, never have them more than once or twice a year.

  • Amanda Perdue says:

    We use them to make Taco Melts. You can find the recipe on the Grands website! One of my husband’s favorite dishes!

  • Michelle K says:

    We use it sometimes for Strawberry Shortcake and this time of year the strawberries are so great!

  • Love all these ideas! THe main one I do has been said, but one little additional time saver is to use kitchen scissors to cut them into fourths, so quick and easy. Then I melt some butter, add parmesan and/or garlic salt and toss, and spread out in a pie pan and bake. I actually serve this when we have company, and people go crazy over it.

  • Kyda says:

    I saw something similar to my recommendation, but I LOVE this recipe for “Lumpy Pizza”

  • kendra says:

    Just in time for Easter….roll a biscuit around a large marshmallow, then roll in cinnamon sugar. Bake and it comes out empty just like the tomb! Fun to make and to eat.

  • Rachel says:

    BBQ Cups! Take 3/4lb ground beef, brown it, add BBQ sauce, flatten out biscuits and put them in a muffin tin, make sure the biscuit goes up the sides, fill with BBQ mixture, add shredded cheese to top, cook at 400 (i think……) until biscuits done and brown on top. (The recipe calls for onions too, but I don’t use them) They’re super good and really easy. Leftovers are nice too, I haven’t tried freezing them yet though.

  • Debbie in PA says:

    Eat them! LOL!

    I saw some of the other ideas I thought of already posted, so I won’t rehash here….sometimes I cook them ahead of time and use them for mini-sandwiches for the kids.

    Is your church having any sort of meal coming up? Donate them to the church for the meal.

  • Rachel says:

    Monkey bread too!!! I don’t have my recipe handy, but I’m sure you could find one somewhere!!! 🙂

  • Jen says:

    We always use to roll them flat and then add a little cream cheese and butter/brown sugar/cinnamon mixture before sealing them and baking them at 350. Tastes like a fresh mini danish.

  • Jody says:

    Monkey bread. Cut biscuits in 1/4’s then dip in melted butter then in cinnamon sugar mixture. Put them in a bundt pan and bake at 35o till done. I use three cans of biscuits.

  • Dani says:

    Take the whole can, roll all the biscuits up into a big ball then flatten out, like a large pizza bread. Cut strips about 1/2 inch thick, 4-5 inches long. Take little smokies, roll them up in the strips and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes and TADA! Pigs in a blanket!

    • Annie says:

      @Dani, We did this for my 2-year old’s birthday party, but we just wrapped each biscuit around 1/2 or 1/3 of a hotdog and sealed the top. They are PERFECT for little hands, and they can still dip in ketchup (or whatever) without having a big mess. :o)

  • Jennifer says:

    Oh my goodness, make some monkey bread! It is very easy to find a recipe for online, and it is so simple and yummy. Also, when I was younger we would make holes in the center of biscuits and fry in canola oil until light brown. Toss with powdered sugar and you have the best “homemade” doughnuts!

    Sorry I just have ideas for sugary treats, but I think canned biscuits are the best in those kind of recipes. 🙂

  • Beth says:

    Monkey bread!

  • karen says:

    Use any leftover ham and make egg/ham/cheese breakfast sandwiches. Freeze and individually wrap for busy mornings.

    I love the idea of donating them, but finding somewhere to donate perishables can be tough.

  • Elizabeth Horton says:

    If you have a fondue pot heat up oil in it and then cut the biscuits into small pieces (big enough to wrap up some filling, probably quarter them) then cut up various ingredients to make little dough packets. Some ideas to try are pepperoni, cube of cheese and some spagetti sauce to dip it in. Cut up apples and then dip dough in cinnamon & sugar when fried. Try small cubes of ham with a cube of swiss cheese also. Wrap the dough completely around the filling and then put it on the fondue scewer and fry in the oil until golden brown. It is so much fun!

  • janet says:

    We use them for breakfast, biscuits and gravy

  • Amy says:

    Canned biscuits make great pinwheels! I roll them flat and then layer a mixture of cream cheese, garlic, Parmesan and spinach. Roll the dough back up like you would for cinnamon rolls. Slice them thin (1/4 to 1/2 inch), and bake according to the directions on the can. They are also great with a layer of sausage to make sausage pinwheels. The best part is that the pinwheels can be put together ahead of time, sliced, and then frozen for a quick snack later.

  • Tarra says:

    You can make a casserole and then put them on top as a crust 🙂

  • Rae says:

    I didn’t read the comments since there were so many so I’m sorry if any of these are repeats. I love getting these so cheap and do several different things.

    –Dumplings. Just dropping them into a hot pan of chicken broth or stock and cooking for a few minutes. The easiest chicken and dumplings and still delicious. I don’t like huge ones so I just cut the biscuits into 2-3 pieces each.

    –Homemade hot pockets. The flakey layers kind is the easiest for this. I take each biscuit and peel the layers apart then put in the filling, put the top back on, pinch the edges shut and bake. My kids LOVE these and they are very versatile. You can do breakfast ones… pb&j or eggs w/ breakfast meat, etc. Or lunch ones… meat, cheese, and veggies if you want (like peppers or spinach depending on your meat/cheese). And after making them you can freeze them so that you can just heat and eat later.

    –Breakfast popovers. Muffin pan. Beat eggs, add cheese, salsa, sour cream or yogurt, and chopped meat (or lunchmeat). Pour into muffin pan. Tear each biscuit into 3 pieces and plop one into each cup making sure to dunk it all the way into the egg. Bake until golden on top and solid. My boys and husband love these also and they are quick to grab, reheat, and eat.

    –Tear each biscuit in half. Mix some sort of butter spread, garlic, parmesan, and basil (or whatever combo you want). Roll the dough in your hand a little bit then dip in the butter mixture. After baking, smear more of the mixture on top while still warm. These come out with a taste and texture more like dinner rolls (which we prefer) then when you just plop them on the pan. They were a big hit at church this past weekend and nobody knew that they came from premade biscuit dough.

  • StacyRose says:

    They make great “Hand Pies” If you roll them a bit you can fill with all sorts of fun things like shredded chicken and cheese – taco meat – the options are limitless…. simply fold over and bake until brown. After they are cooked they can be cooled and frozen in foil for a quick pop in the mircowave snack the kids (big and small) will love.

  • Julia says:

    I love the idea of biscuit doughnuts or as a chicken dumpling topping. I’d be interested to see if you can use them for your freezer cooking day. I never buy those biscuits… and I never find them for the kind of price you did! I bet they’d also be sweet with the middle hollowed out and filled with soup. Maybe you could make larger bread bowls out of several biscuits combined. Yum.

  • elle says:

    How about apple dumplings? Yummy! Or even fried apple pies.

  • Amy says:

    I got a good deal on some a while back and checked out the Grands website. They have some good recipes listed.

    We liked the blueberry shortcakes and the cheesy florentine biscuit cups.

  • WilliamB says:

    Having read all the comment to make sure my idea wasn’t there already, I offer:

    Hand Pies.

    1. Roll a biscuit out thinly.
    2. Cover half the dough with leftover stew OR ground meat & small chopped veg OR BBQ meat OR … you get the idea, leaving a 1/2″ edge uncovered.
    3. Brush edge with water or milk or egg (egg makes the best seal).
    4. Fold over, mash edge with fork to seal.
    5. Bake as directed on roll, removing when dough cooked.

    This recipe has two advantages for you. You can make the pies then freeze, then bake the frozen pies for longer. Or you can freeze the tubes and make this from defrosted biscuits. Frozen tube biscuits don’t work out well as biscuits – I tried it when the store paid me to take the tubes, they don’t rise enough – but for the hand pies it doesn’t matter. (It also shouldn’t matter for the variations of pizza or apple pie listed in your blog.)

  • Tracy says:

    use them to make piggies in a blanket =) we use cresent rolls usually but I’ve used these before, and they turn out pretty good too.

  • Dolly says:

    Indian Naan: You can make chicken curry along with Naan
    Roll or stretch each biscuit portion into a circle roughly 8 in circumference. Brush each with some reserved melted butter and place on to medium heated pan; gently press it untill the bottom portion gets golden, flip and do the same for other side

  • Tami says:

    Pull the biscuits apart and drop in hot oil for doughnuts. Roll in conf. sugar or granulated sugar while they are still hot. YUMMY. Also we use canned biscuit dough to make pig in a blankets.

  • Jill says:

    Bubble Pizza:
    2 cans uncooked biscuits—cut into fourths
    1-2 lbs ground beef, cooked
    1 can spaghetti sauce
    1-2 cups grated cheese
    Drop biscuit pieces into greased casserole dish. Mix beef & sauce—pour over biscuits. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese—bake for 15-20 minutes longer or until done.

  • Rachel says:

    The pillsbury website does have a LOT of great recipes to try!

    We are a particular fan of this sweet treat:

  • Krysti says:

    If you’re family is into doughnuts. Canned bisquits make really easy doughnuts. take a bottle lid and cut out the center, fry em up and either make your own glaze or just dip in powdered sugar. The kids LOVE these for special treats.

  • Chelsea says:

    Someone may have said this already, but my kids love Monkey Bread. Its uses up lots of canned biscuits and is super easy to make!

  • We’ve been making these:

    I think it’s basically Monkey Bread! I dunno. My hubby LOVES them.

    I’m so with you, Crystal. We don’t usually buy the biscuits, because when I first started couponing, I went crazy with a pillsbury cat promotion. Biscuit overload. We prefer baking powder biscuits anyway!

  • Ashley says:

    Had that problem a few weeks ago… Chili Casserole is good, also could make mini-pot pies in a muffin tin w/ them…

  • Erica says:

    Monkey Bread!!!!!

    cut each bisquit into fourths and roll into a mix of sugar and cinnamon
    drop into a bundt pan
    mix a stick of melted butter with a cup of brown sugar and pour over bisquits. Bake at 400 for 30 min or until top is golden.
    Add chopped nuts to the bundt pan before the bisquits if you like.

  • Tami says:

    Haven’t read through the replies, but cut them up and make monkey bread on saturday morning. Or use them for pigs in a blanket. Cut hot dog (any kind) in half. roll half a dog plus a little shredded cheese in a biscuit. Bake according to biscuit directions. Can also use sausage links.

  • chris says:

    I recently tried a recipe from Taste of Home called Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-ups. Brown 1# gd beef, 6 bacon strips (diced), and 1/2 c chopped onion until no longer pink (duh). Drain. Add 8 oz cubed Velveeta cheese and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Flatten each biscuit into a 5′ circle and spoon 1/3 c beef mixture onto each biscuit. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 18-20′ or until golden brown (if I remember correctly, these didn’t take 18 min). They offer a dipping sauce of 1/2 c ketchup mixed with 1/4 c yellow mustard but we passed on that.

    They were really good and warmed up decent the next day. I tried them again another time substituting the hamburger with cut up sausage links and some hash browns (the little square ones) for a breakfast sandwich. They were really good too!

    Looks like you have a lot of good suggestions…I will have to use some too as I have a few cans myself!

  • Karen says:

    Freeze them! I know the package says not to but I have and they turn out fine. I just thaw them unopened in the fridge inside a ziptop bag (just in case it should pop open, but that’s never happened to me) then bake as normal.

  • Sara says:

    Fruit Pizza!!!

  • Laura C says:

    As I commented up there…Push the biscuts into muffin tins and you can fill that spot with almost anything. Some of the things we do here is :

    Mini Shepards Pies, BBQ nests (fill the spot with pulled pork or beef) Sloppy joe nests, etc etc etc the possibilities are endless and we even make dessert ones, cherry, blueberry filling …they are yummy 🙂

  • Holli says:

    MONKEY BREAD! I’m not sure how they’ll work with Grands instead of buttermilk (I’d try using 2.5-3 tubes instead of the recommended 4…they grow big! The cut up pieces of biscuit should fill between 1/2-way and 3/4-way up the bundt pan, unbaked.)

    Monkey Bread

    4 cans refrigerated biscuits
    1/2 cup white sugar
    2 Tablespoons cinnamon
    For Sauce:
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
    1 Tablespoon cinnamon

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9-10 inch bundt pan.

    2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized plastic bag. Cut the biscuits into halves or quarters and place six to eight biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Shake well.

    3. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the greased pan. Continue layering until all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan.

    4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar and cinnamon over medium heat just until it starts to boil. Pour over the layered biscuits.

    5. Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Pull apart and enjoy!

  • Alicia Horn says:

    You could make resurrection buns in celebration of Easter. We did this last year with a preschool group and it was easy enough for the little ones to get involved and they were astonished to find the marshmallow had disappeared when the buns were cooked. Here’s a link:

  • Amy C says:

    Sausage Egg & Cheese Biscuits

    These are so yummy and so easy! My 5 yr old daughter loves them. They freeze beautifully. My husband prefers to use sliced deli ham instead of sausage.

    1 can biscuits
    3 eggs
    2 cups shredded cheese
    1 lb. meat, cooked sausage or sliced ham

    Tear each biscuit in half. Line each section of a muffin pan with the split biscuit. It’s okay if the biscuit doesn’t come up to the very top of the pan. In a bowl, mix together the eggs, cheese and meat. Spoon mixture into each of the biscuits. I’ve found if I reduce the temp. by maybe 25 degrees or so from the baking directions on the biscuit pkg. for the same amt of time as the directions, they turn out perfect. Enjoy!

  • Angie says:

    Biscuits and gravy or breakfast.

  • Alison says:

    Monkey bread! Totally naughty, but fun for the kids to help with and divine to eat!

  • Kate says:

    Cut them in half and drop on top of simmering soups and stews, cover and continue to simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes and you have dumplings. Yum!

  • Tonya says:

    We use the dough to make mini pizzas

  • Connie says:

    Hands-on, kid friendly…we do use these (when Grandma buys them) to wrap hot dogs (pigs in a blanket) and Grandma just showed us a recipe with a round biscuit as a bunny face and dough pieces for ears and then almond slices and cranberries/raisins for eyes…cute! Easter decoration/snack 🙂 Enjoy! ~C

  • Stacy says:

    My family loves baked beans & BBQ sauce so this is a family FAVORITE and I use either biscuits or crescent rolls on top depending on what I have or is cheapest.

    Hungry Jack Casserole
    (St Paul’s Church Cookbook)

    1lb hamburger 1 t salt
    16 oz can baked beans ¾ c BBQ sauce
    2 T brown sugar 1 T onion minced
    1 can biscuits 1 c cheddar cheese

    Preheat oven to 375F. Brown hamburger and drain. Stir in next five ingredients. Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish. Separate biscuits in about half and place on top of the dish. Sprinkle top with cheese. Bake for 25 – 30 min.

  • alicia says:

    beefed up biscuit casserole! yum! let me know if you need/want the recipe.

  • Jen says:

    If you own a crockpot go to she has a lot of good recipes that use biscuits. My fav is chix pot pie!!

  • Melissa says:

    Hope these aren’t repeats for you but I really didn’t have time to look through all of the comments before posting. I have two favorites that we do with canned biscuits. Neither is figure friendly but both sure do taste good =)

    Chinese doughnuts – cut in half, roll, fry, roll in powdered or regular sugar

    Garlic Bites – cut in fourths, melt a half stick of butter and add in 2 cloves of minced garlic…top biscuits with garlic butter and cook until brown using instructions on can as your guidelin.

  • Tara says:

    I make monkey bread. Take 3 small cans of biscuits (don’t know what that would equate to in grands, maybe 1 1/2 to 2 cans) and cut into quarters. Put in bag with about 1 cup sugar and 2 T cinnamon (I eyeball these). Shake until coated. Layer in Bundt pan and pour 1 stick melted butter mixed with 1 cup brown sugar over top. Can add nuts too! Bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes. Yummy!

  • You can use them as topping for a pot pie type dish – easy to make up and freezes well.

    Someone else already mentioned this, but you can use them as individual pizzas too.

  • Shana says:

    We make homemade Donuts with Grands Homestyle Biscuits and they are awesome! Just cut your “donut hole” out of the center… pop into some canola oil at about 350 until browned. They are delicious! We like ours dipped in honey or cinnamon/sugar.

  • Kim says:

    You’ve already received lots of good ideas, but I thought I’d add one more I didn’t see listed. Last time I got a good deal on them I baked some of them cut them in half and made breakfast sandwiches for the kids. They loved them with sausage or bacon, cheese, and eggs. It’s a really quick and easy breakfast.

  • Sarah says:

    Press them into the bottom of a pan and make a breakfast casserole 🙂 Eggs, sausage, veggies…whatever you like!

  • Jenny K says:

    There’s a lovely recipe from Cook’s Country, sadly no longer available but I did save it!, called Quick Chicken Pot pie. Basically you just make the filling and you serve it with a biscuit.

  • Allison says:

    I think they’ve got you covered on recipes, but by the way, you *can* keep biscuit dough past its expiration date….ask me how I know! ; )

  • I like to make stew and spoon it overtop the biscuits. It’s a good way to stretch a small amount of stew. You could also do egg sandwiches- scrambled eggs, cheese in the middle of a sliced open biscuit.

  • Joy says:

    We flatten them out a bit and cut a small hole in the center then fry them up and have instant donuts! Roll them in cinnamon & sugar or powdered sugar. Fry the inside parts up as donut holes. Great to do when camping!

  • Nicole says:

    I agree- MONKEY BREAD! Best stuff ever. Or you can roll it out and make mini pizza’s, If you have a waffle iron- My kids love those! Make a sheperds pie and use it as the topping.

  • Gwen says:

    I squish them into a deep dish pie crust, bake for about 10 minutes and then pour in homemade chicken pot pie stuff, put a few halves of biscuits, bake. Then my fiance has homepade potpie for about $2.00 for the whole thing, depending on how much I got all the ingredients for and lasts about 4 lunches.

  • Angie says:

    I got this off of Real Simple, but can’t find the recipe. Cut a hole in the center with a shot glass, shallow fry them, and then dredge them in cinnamon sugar. Homemade donuts and donut holes!

  • Kimberly says:

    Chicken (or other meat) Biscuit Bites

    Take some chicken and shred it and mix it into a can of cream of whatever soup. (You can use whatever meat and whatever soup you want). Take each biscuit and smoosh it into a muffin tin to create a cup shape. Fill with a bit of the chicken mixture and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. You can adapt this to use whatever you have on hand. Makes a great meal for the kids!

  • Shelley says:

    Chicken and Dumplings! (but oh how I love Monkey Bread too! I thought I would just give a healthier suggestion! lol)

  • Brandy M. says:

    All those are super great ideas but it would still be to much biscuit for me at once. You can take them out of the cans and “flash freeze” them. Then I put them in Ziplocs and toss into the freezer. I write what degree to cook them on and when you are need them you pull out what you need to eat. I don’t pre-heat my oven when I do it this way though because I toss the biscuits in frozen and that’s my way of “thawing” them.

  • Rachel says:

    Dumplins PLEASE! Or chicken n dumplings. That is one of my new freezer meals. I cook chicken with cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, and some chicken broth in the crock pot. Then when I get home I put what we will eat for dinner in a pot on the stove – add some more water or chicken broth to a boil – and add canned biscuits (torn into smaller pieces). My husband loves this! It is super easy and so good. What I don’t make that night I cool and freeze. Then thaw when wanted, warm in a pot (with the added water/broth phase) and add the biscuits. You could just make dumplings with chicken broth and the biscuits. Yummm.

    – my husband also loves ‘pigs-in-the-blanket’ but i make them with hot dogs and roll cheese in them too. Great quickie dinner

  • I like to make little calzones with them. I flatten each out and then put some spaghetti sauce, cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese on half of them and then place another biscuit on top and press the sides together. My husband and kids love em!

  • Krystyn says:

    Monkey bread for a tasty and ridiculously unhealthy treat!

  • Melody says:

    Here’s a quick meal idea: Taco Cups: split the biscuits in half – roll them out a little. (The layered biscuits work best for this, but I’ve done it with the “homestyle” type too.) Grease a muffin tin and put half a biscuit inside. Fill with any meat – we love taco meat or seasoned cooked chicken inside. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Top with chees the last couple minutes or so. Yum!

  • Ashley says:

    Sloppy Joe Cups!

    Just line a muffin pan, thinly, with the biscuit dough and fill the cups with your favorite Sloppy Joe filling!

  • Heather says:

    Make pot pie!

  • Helen says:

    Yup, monkey bread. Or cut them up and put them on top of a modified chicken pot pie

  • Sherri says:

    I use them for chicken and dumplings. Put chicken, broth, and cream of chicken soup in a pot, add small pieces of biscuit, and cook uncovered for 10 min and then covered for 10 min.

    Another thing I use these for is the base to BBQ pie. Press them out on the bottom of a pie pan and bake about 1/2 the required time. Then top with either chicken or beef mixed with BBQ sauce, and cheddar cheese on top. Bake for the remaining time or until “crust” is done.

  • Kristel says:

    I like to use those to make what I call “BBQ baskets.”
    Here is a recipe I found that’s similar to what I make.

  • lauren says:

    I prefer the homemade as well on rolls/biscuits. But sometimes if I get a sale, I’ll get them to make Monkey Bread! Yum!!

  • Annicedda says:

    I love to make Chicken Buns Chicken Buns they are delicious. Also, I make breakfast buns by flattening the buns out and stuffing them with turkey, cheese and bacon or any meat and cheese combination.

  • Sara says:

    Here is one of my favorite recipes: Chicken & Dumplings in the Slow Cooker! The other ingredients are cheap, too!

  • Elizabeth says:

    I like to use them for monkey bread, chicken pot pie, or biscuits and gravy.

  • Cara says:

    This is, by far, the best use I could EVER think of for canned biscuits. It’s Kraft’s recipe for Pull-Apart Maple Pecan Sticky Buns. I’ve made this recipe many, many times and every time, people say it’s the best they’ve ever had. Its like buttery cinnamon sugar coated monkey bread stuffed with cinnamon sugar cream cheese. Oh, it’s is ridiculously good.

  • Melissa says:

    Just have to say thanks a lot 🙂 I started reading these comments and now I have like 100 things I want to go make! You all have some great ideas! Yum!

  • Stephanie says:

    We make hot pockets with them.

    Flatten the biscuits.
    Fill with pocket mixture: Cream cheese, stuffing mix, peas, celery, (really any veggie you’d like) all mixed together.
    Bake as directed or until brown.
    Top with chix. gravy or eat plain.

  • Anna Cotton says:

    Canned biscuits make excellent donuts. Quarter, fry until golden, and roll in powdered sugar.

  • Crystal says:

    I will definitely be going through all of the comments here. We don’t normally eat many of these biscuits, either, but my store did pay me to take them home recently. Needless to say, I ended up with a lot of biscuits. I actually took most of them out of the cans and froze them, but i need more inspiration to use them up.

  • You can bake the biscuits and then use them on top of chicken pot pie. Or top a shepherds pie with them. Or “drown” them in sausage gravy for an easy dinner.

  • Thought of something else…you could bake them and then freeze in packets of 6 or so. Then just pull out some when you need a quick breakfast or dinner bread.

  • Erin says:

    There is a recipe on all recipes at this link. I use Pampered Chef greek seasoning (because I have it on hand) and dill and skip the other spices and parmesan cheese. They are AWESOME. I cut my biscuits in half, dip in mixture and fold in half and make a ring around the edges of a 9″ round cake pan. So easy, so fattening and soooo good.

  • B says:

    wow, i’m hungry reading all these great ideas!

    cheesecake factory has an amazing strawberry shortcake dessert and here’s the “cheater” recipe for it – super easy:

    instead of whipped cream, we fill it with vanilla bean ice cream (like the cheesecake factory).

  • Casie says:

    Do you have a fire pit/fire place/somewhere you can cook over an open fire? We take dowel rods (like the 3/4″ or 1″ rods) and put foil around the top of it and then take the biscuit, stretch it out some and wrap it around and over the top of the dowl rod and then cook over an open flame. When you’re done you can insert a cooked sausage link or butter/jelly/honey for a sweet breakfast item. This is something we make EVERY time we go camping. Delicious and easy.

  • Cam says:

    I don’t usually buy canned biscuits either, but after reading all these yummy suggestions, I think I’ll try them again. Keeping homemade for sausage, biscuits and gravy of course!

  • Kim says:

    Look up Paula Deen’s Gorilla bread. Oh My!! Yum!

  • Laurie says:

    2 casseroles…pizza casserole w/ ground beef and pizza sauce on bottom, topped with biscuits and cheese. A great one is ground beef and a large can of barbecue beans topped with biscuits and cheese. Yum for both!

  • Bren says:

    Open as many packages as you want and lay the biscuits out on a cookie sheet sides almost touching. Cover the whole thing with plastic wrap and place in the freezer and freeze until solid. Then bag up in your-family-sized batches and you have biscuits ready to go whenever you want them! Just add a couple of minutes to the baking time.

  • Rachel says:

    I just tried this recipe called “Little Pies” using canned biscuits:

    They were really good (according to my husband). 🙂

  • Mrs K says:

    I know you’ll probably never get to this comment (and I admit I didn’t read them all either) but here’s my most favorite, naughty recipe. Melt 1 stick of butter in microwave. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 2 T cinnamon in a seperate bowl. Take a block of cream cheese and cut into as many pieces as you have biscuits (8-10). Flatten each biscuit, take a cube of cream cheese, roll in melted butter, roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place in middle of biscuit, wrap biscuit around cream cheese and place in a muffin tin. Continue with remaining biscuits and cream cheese. Drizzle remaining butter and sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar over muffin tin. Bake for 15 minutes at 375. They are called Cream Cheese Clouds and it was a Kraft recipe a long time ago. And the cream cheese does not need to be completely covered, just cinch the biscuit closed.

    On another note, could you do a picture tutorial of your homemade biscuits? Because we all love biscuits here but I’ve never ever been able to make a good one so we have to use refrigerated.

    • Aimee says:

      @Mrs K,
      I was going to post the same recipe! The only thing I’d add is to place each one in a muffin tin…it keeps them from oozing everywhere.

  • Two ingredients:



    Apricot preserves

    OK, really, you could do just about any cheese with any jam (though I happen to think apricot or raspberry work best with cheeses). Put a little of each inside some dough, popover style, and bake. Yummy!

  • Esther says:

    – Cut circles out of the middle and fry like doughnuts
    -Use as a biscuit topping for Chicken Pot Pie
    -Press them into muffin tins, top with brown beef mixed with bbq sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Makes yummy little “Barbeque Cups”
    -Make monkey bread (Cut each biscuit into fourths, roll every piece in butter and cinnamon sugar, put all in a bundt pan and bake)
    -Use as dumplings in soup

  • We don’t buy the canned biscuits, but my MIL uses them to make a sort of apple dumpling. She cores the apples, puts brown sugar and spices in and around them, then wraps them in the biscuit dough and bakes. They’re okay. Not as good as real pastry would be, but with a little ice cream, they are edible.

  • Libby says:

    I love all the above ideas and will have to try them myself. To make the Monkey Bread even more “sinful”, wrap the biscuit quarters around a small cube of cream cheese before continuing with the recipe. Heavenly!

  • Susan H. says:

    Here’s an Easter idea to do with your kids: The night before, take the biscuits , slice in half lengthwise, and “seal” a marshmallow inside. Talk about how Jesus was sealed in the tomb. Leave in the fridge overnight and bake the next morning. When you pull them out of the oven, they will have a hollow space in the middle. This is a great lesson for little kids to see how Jesus was gone from the tomb on Easter morning.

  • lee says:

    I roll them out alittle (big round circles) and add ham and cheese into a sort of sandwich/pocket thing. I’ve also used them to make breakfast sandwiches, a yummy dinner, lunch or breakfast.

  • Beth says:

    Biscuits, butter, blueberries, oats, and brown sugar. Amazing.
    I take this to family breakfasts, brunches at work, and church breakfasts as well. I love it with a good cup of hazelnut coffee…

  • Amanda W says:

    Puch a bunch of them on the bottom of a casserole dish and brown. Cover with Frisch’s tarter sausce browned ground beef, lettuce, and shredded cheese and you have Big Boy Casserole. Yum!

  • Angel says:


    choose pan based on desired amount of rolls of biscets (bread pan for 2 rolls)
    pizza sauce
    mozz cheeze
    desired pizza topings
    break biscets into forths dip in pizza sauce and layer in pan
    cover with Mozz cheeze and place favorit toppings on top
    bake for the directions of the biscets or until cooked through.
    This is a fun way to eat pizza!

    • Christina says:

      @Angel, My MIL makes this too. It is actually VERY yummy, you would never know canned biscuts were in it. (I personally don’t do canned biscuts either).

  • Holly says:

    I mash the biscuit dough into muffin tins and make a “biscuit bowl.” Then I fill the bowl with seasoned taco meat. Bake according to the pkg directions, take out of the oven and top with cheese while the taco cups are still hot. Yummy and portable!

  • Dory says:

    I was going to suggest Monkey Bread. The stuff from the store isn’t very good IMO, but “homemade” is great! That’s pretty much the only reason I buy refrigerated biscuits :-).

  • Michelle says:

    I have made doughnuts using canned biscuits before and they were AWESOME and so easy.

    Heat oil in a frying pan. Take canned biscuits and stretch them into a doughnut shape by making a hole in the middle. Fry the dough in hot oil until they turn a lovely golden brown (make sure they are cooked all of the way through and not doughy.

    Dip in a glaze made by mixing powdered sugar with a bit of milk and a touch of vanilla extract.

  • Noel says:

    Has someone else mentioned using them as a pizza dough? Simply roll them out a little to flatten and combing them into one piece (or as best you can get them) in a 9×13. Then put your toppings on as normal and bake. I normally just follow baking directions on the package. It’s like deep dish pizza!

    • Barbara says:

      Years ago ( when I was still using canned biscuits) I would roll them out thin like Noel said, to make pizzas. Only instead of putting them together to make one pizza, I made mini pizzas. One biscuit rolled flat, sauce, meat, cheese and whatever. I have to admit, they were good!

  • Bev says:

    Make Chicken and Biscuits! I like this recipe:

    It is an easy recipe and you can customize it based on what condensed soups you have on hand.

  • Maureen says:

    We make this monkey bread every Xmas morning:

  • Melissa says:

    Pillsbury’s website has a lot of recipes using their various products; you can just search for the product you want. We particularly liked Mexican Bubble Pizza. It calls for chicken, but I made it with leftover Thanksgiving turkey, and it was really good.

  • Jenn says:

    Monkey bread
    Pizza casserole (mix browned hamburger with pizza sauce, shredded cheese, and ripped up biscuits)
    Use as a topping for Pot Pie
    Biscuits & Gravy
    Mini Pizzas and/or Sandwiches

  • Jessica says:

    Creamy Corn and Beef ~So Yummy!!!
    Ground beef(1 lb.)
    Frozen sweet corn(1 quart)
    Cream sauce (either homemade or canned soup)(1 can worth)
    Cream cheese(1- 8 oz. pkg.)
    After browning the ground beef, add cream cheese, cook until melted. Add cream sauce and corn. Season to taste. Pour into casserole dish. Top with biscuits. Bake. (I have baked the biscuits for part of their cooking time on a cookie sheet and then transferred them to the top of the hot casserole to finish their baking.) 375 degrees ~ 30 min.

  • CcsMomma says:

    Use them t o make monkey bread. OR use them to make fried doughnuts like at the chinese restaurants. Cook them until brown on both sides and then roll them in table sugar while hot. People are always amazed that they are just fried biscuits.

  • milissa says:

    i didn’t read all 163 comments so forgive me if this is a repeat.

    i use canned biscuits in a shortcut chicken and dumpling recipe.

    *8 cups chicken broth (2 big boxes)
    *2 cups cooked shredded chicken (awesome use for leftovers or you can just parboil chicken for the recipe)
    *1 cup diced onion
    *3/4 cup diced carrots
    *1/2 cup diced celery
    *a couple cloved of minced garlic
    *2 small cans or 1 large can of biscuits

    Bring 1 box of chicken stock to boil…add onion, garlic, carrots, celery, chicken. Add about 1/2 the 2nd bok of chicken stock. Once that comes to a rolling boil, drop in biscuits (If they are the larger biscuits, you’ll probably want to cut them in half.) Dunk the biscuits with a spoon. To keep the biscuits under the broth, you will probably need to add the remaining chicken stock. Continue to stir so the biscuits don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. The starch from the biscuits will thicken your broth…once it reaches desired consistency, chicken and dumplings are done. Recipe takes about 30 minutes from start to finish…and it is yummy…nobody will know you “cheated” unless you tell them.

    We make chicken pastry (chicken and dumplings) out of canned biscuits.
    I got this trick from my grandma. Boil your chicken, save the chicken broth from where you boiled the chicken. Add salt and pepper. shread the chicken, or dice it add back to the broth. You flatten out the biscuits and slice thinly. Place them in the boiling broth. cook on med heat until done, stirring frequently.

  • Paige says:

    My favorite canned biscuit recipe is cheeseburger rollups.

    1 lb ground beef or turkey
    6 bacon strips, diced
    8 oz velveeta cheese
    1 biscuit tube
    ketchup and mustard

    brown the meat and drain. cook bacon and dice up. add to meat. add cheese, cook, and stir until melted. flatten each biscuit. scoop the mixture in to the middle and roll up in biscuit. place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. bake at 400 for about 10 to 12 minutes. just watch the biscuits and when they turn golden brown, they are done!

    dip in mustard and ketchup!

  • Dawn Olsen says:

    A Taste of Home recipe I tried recently –
    Lemon Pull Apart Coffee Cake
    1/4 c sugar 1/4 c chopped walnuts 1/4 c golden raisins
    2 T butter, melted
    2 tsps grated lemon peel
    1 tube 12 oz refrig. biscuits

    Glaze 1/2 c confectioners sugar
    1 T lemon juice

    Combine first 5 ingred. Separate biscuits and cute each into 4ths. Toss with sugar mix. place in greased 9″ round baking pan. Bake at 400 for 20 -25 min or til golden brown. Immediately invert onto a wire rack. Combine glaze ingred. until smooth. drizzle over warm coffee cake – 10 servings.

    Probably our favorite way to fix these is to make “runzas”.
    Cook some chopped cabbage in water with a little salt. When cabbage is tender drain and set aside. Brown hamb and onion with s&p. Drain off any grease. Add cabbage. Roll out biscuits and put a dollop of cabbage mix on one half. Can add cheese, salsa, or ketchup as desired. Flip the other half of the biscuit over it and pinch edges. Bake as stated on biscuit can or till browned well.

  • Darlene says:

    This is the perfect time of year to have your problem of “too many” cans of biscuits. Make Resurrection Rolls!

    To see what we did last year, go to – — you can do this too! Let the children make their own or even use it as an outreach activity with neighbor children. Enjoy!

    May the Blessings of Christ abound through you!

  • Laura says:

    Make monkey bread!!!!

  • Julie says:

    You can find lots of options at Two that I’ve had success with are
    Mexican Bubble Pizza ( and
    Grands! Taco Melts (

  • Stacy says:

    We take two biscuits and smoosh them together to make the base for Navajo tacos. After smooshing two (or three) together, flatten them and bake according to package directions. Top with refried beans, taco flavored meat, chili, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, etc. My husband loves these!

  • Beeb says:

    Looks like you already have loads of suggestions! I hear ya on preferring homemade, but I do enjoy these and I REALLY enjoy the time it saves!! LOL! I’ve been using these to serve as a side dish with brunch (I like to do a “scrambler” with sauteed onion, garlic, chopped potatoes, broccoli, cheese and eggs, then serve with biscuits and fruit), and also for biscuits and gravy (one of my favorite food growing up!). You could also use them in a casserole – there’s a lot of biscuit and sausage breakfast casseroles that I’m sure have already been mentioned. Also, when I have my annual Halloween party, I make “mummy hot dogs” by wrapping biscuit strips around a hot dog and baking for a few minutes. (recipe and pics here: (One family friend loved these so much that when we invited him over to dinner for his birthday one year, he requested these. LOL!)
    And there’s my novel about biscuits – ha!

  • Beeb says:

    Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that these usually have a pretty long expiry date on them too.

  • MrsD05 says:

    Freeze ’em! I always freeze mine and that way if I get a great deal I can stock up and still have them only when I want them instead of trying to fit them all into our menus before they expire.

    Just thaw in the fridge. Works just fine. 🙂

    • Jill says:

      Do you just take them out of the can first before freezing? How long can they typically be frozen before they get freezer burned?

      • Angel says:

        @Jill, Nope, leave them in the can! I do this w/pizza dough too. Just put the can in the frig the day before you need them to thaw. Been doing it this way for years and never had a can burst or taste bad. 🙂

      • MrsD05 says:

        @Jill, ahem. I am ashamed to tell you how long they last. I haven’t ever had any go bad so I’m not sure how long they would be ok. I have used them after 6 months and they’ve been just great. Yes, as previous replier said just thaw in the fridge the night before you want to use them.

  • rachelc says:

    Love meatball in a biscuit… my husband loves it and so does my son. Flatten out a biscuit. Put a (cooked) meatball in the middle, and some mozzarella. Seal it closed, sprinkle with a few breadcrumbs, and bake. Bake for about 20-25 minutes… until the biscuits are done. Serve with a side of sauce!

  • Rebecca says:

    Cowboy Casserole
    1 lb ground beef
    1 onion, chopped
    1 15-oz can baked beans
    1 c bbq sauce
    2 Tbsp brown sugar

    Brown ground beef with onion. Remove from heat. Stir in beans, bbq sauce & brown sugar. (You can freeze it at this point!) Pour into round greased baking dish. Bake uncovered 30 minutes at 400. Cut refrigerator biscuits in half. Arrange like spokes around edge of baking dish, cut side down. Return to oven and bake 20 minutes. Top with 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and bake 10 minutes more.

    This is delicious. I often add more beans and less sugar, and use lots of biscuits. Great, simple freezer meal!

  • nancy says:

    I would make our barbecue biscuits – put one biscuit in each muffin tin and press down and pull up the sides to make a cup.

    Brown hamburger meat and mix with a sweet bbq sauce and spoon in the cups. Pop in the oven at the temp it says to bake the biscuits at and when you see the edges of the cups getting brown you can pull them out and sprinkle cheese and pop-them back in until the cheese is melted. These are a big hit at work – they are easy to pop-out of the muffin tin. If you are using the Grands which it looks like you are – you may want to bake the biscuits without the filling for about 5-8 minutes to ensure the dough is cooked thoroughly.

    I make dumplings out of them when in a pinch for our homemade chicken noodle soup – minus the noodles but with the dumplings.

  • Andrea says:

    You can make a chicken pot pie in a 9×13 dish – just add shredded chicken,veggies, and make a gravy, then top it with the canned biscuits and cook until the biscuits are browned. Super yummy, and a different variation from the pie crust variety of pot pies.

  • Suzi says:

    Cheeseburger Pizza Rounds

    1 can Grands biscuits
    ½ lb. ground beef
    1 jar Ragu pizza sauce
    pepperoni – sliced in half
    1 cup mozzarella cheese
    ½ green pepper – chopped
    1 small onion – chopped
    1 small can olives – sliced
    1 small can mushrooms
    Italian seasoning

    Brown and drain ground beef.
    Chop vegetables and pepperoni into bite sized pieces. Add vegetables, pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, cheese, pizza sauce, and seasoning to the ground beef. Heat until cheese melts and remove from the stove top. Set aside.
    Spray a large cookie sheet with PAM. Remove biscuits from the can and flatten. Place on greased cookie sheet approximately 1 inch apart.
    Spoon pizza mixture onto each biscuit until all of the mixture is used. Top with additional mozzarella cheese.
    Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until biscuit edges are golden.

  • Jen Grice says:

    Here is a blog – that I love – that gave a whole list of stuff to make. I made the Quick Brunch with a pound of bulk sausage and it was awesome. Have fun!

  • Jennifer says:

    I like to make individual pizzas out of these biscuits when I get them for free. I roll the biscuit out and then make a little lip around the edges. Add a spoonful of pizza sauce, 3 or 4 slices of pepperoni and some grated cheese. Bake as directed on the package, or a little longer until cheese is melted. Once cooled you can freeze these and pull out for an easy lunch.

  • carrie says:

    I use them to make “sloppy joe cups”. Just take your biscuit out and use the bottom of the cup to make an idention in them(it will be like a little bowl) and I put sloppy joe mixture in them and bake them according to the canned biscuit directions. Serve with a salad for a quick easy meal.

  • Marissa says:

    I pull them apart in the middles and press them into muffins tins. I then add pizza sauce and cheese and what ever else we like on pizza and then cook. They are mini pizzas to everyones liking.

  • These sound perfect for Resurrection Rolls! (I usually use Crescents, but these should work fine). They are SO good you’ll go through several cans in no time! And I know your girls would enjoy the activity with you, tying in with Easter and Jesus’ Resurrection.
    Happy Easter!

  • Charissa says:

    We make Cheeseburger Cups.

    Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
    Spread biscuits up the muffin tins
    Brown a lb. of hamburger meat and an onion
    Once browned add ketchup and mustard to taste (we like a lot)
    Fill muffin tins full with meat mixture
    Top with cheese
    Bake according to biscuit directions.

    Kids love these!!!

  • christi says:

    Pigs-in-a-blanket. This is a favorite for my kiddos and my husband. I just use the beef smokies you get from Aldi.

  • Heather says:

    We make taco cups. Take a biscuit and press it into a muffin tin. Then fill the biscuit (prebaking) with taco meat. Top with a little bit of cheese. Bake according to biscuit package directions. Once done you have fun little cups that you can top with things like lettuce, tomato, sour cream and so on.

    Another idea is to take a piece of the biscuit not the whole thing and wrap it around a meatball (I always use frozen). Cook according to biscuit directions. Once done you have little finger food that taste great dipped in pizza sauce.

  • Heather says:

    I always give a bunch to the neighbors:). Last time I got paid to take them out of the store with the catalina and I went on for recipes. I’ve made monkey bread, dumplings, calzones, etc.

  • jan says:

    monkey bread, garlic bread, cream cheese and brown sugar rolls, give them to a shelter 🙂

  • Lisa says:

    Same idea as the Sloppy Joe cups, or BBQ cups- We like “Taco Biscuits”- and the best part about them is, it’s so easy to make a large batch of them and freeze them for later meals or snacks!
    Heat oven to 375*. Place biscuits in cupcake pan; press dough up sides of cups. (I usually split the layer biscuits in half lengthwise- you’ll still have plenty of biscuit, and you won’t have to fight so hard to keep the filling in the cups! Also, I used whole biscuits once, and I felt like there wasn’t enough meat to go with each large biscuit.) Spoon (previously cooked and taco-seasoned) hamburger meat into the middle of the biscuits. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. (If meat is starting to puff out too much, you can push it back down with a spoon part of the way through the cook time.) We take a few taco biscuits and cut them up, add sour cream, lettuce, tomato, (etc)…Mmmmm! They really are good!

  • Lacey C. says:

    1. Freeze them!
    2. Monkey bread!
    3. Poke a hole in the middle and deep-fry – then coat with thinned icing or sugar. Donuts!
    4. Cut into 4ths and drop into simmering chicken soup – dumplings!
    5. Cut into 4th and press into the bottom and sides of a greased muffin pan. Top with chili and cheese. Bake. Breakfast! 🙂

  • stacey L says:

    We like to make flatbread tacos from canned biscuits. Just roll very flat with rolling pin, and cook on a griddle pan (I use my George Foreman grill), for 2-3 min/side. Then fill with your choice of seasoned meat (we like shredded chicken) and other taco fixin’s. We also use ranch sour cream (partial packet of Hidden Valley w/sour cream) as a sauce. They remind me of gorditas at Taco Bell.

    Got this idea from a family member. Thanks, Leah!

  • Heidi says:

    Go to they have a ton of great recipes for their biscuits.

  • Sherri says:

    Make donuts with them. Just fry them up in oil. YOu can even poke a whole in them, but that isn’t really necessary. I use to do this for my kids when I did childcare and they just loved them. I use to put jelly in the middle or honey on the outsides of them too.

  • Gina says:

    I say give them away! Bless someone else with your blessing! 🙂

    I read Crazy Love by Francis Chan this week and he speculates about what would have happened if the disciples would have kept the 12 baskets of bread and fish instead of passing it out to the thousands of hungry folks? What if they would have received the baskets from Jesus and simply said, “Thanks, Lord! Wow, look how you’ve blessed us!” What a tragedy! It wouldn’t have multiplied and blessed so many others! 🙂

  • Danna says:

    I have a friend who flattens out the biscuits and then tops them with pizza sauce, a slice of pepperoni and cheese, and bakes them up for a quick pizza lunch for the kids.

    They make a nice topper for a chicken stew (a little chicken and dumpling-ish).

    I bet you could roll them out flatter and them put them in a sprayed muffin tin and add Jam or pie filling and make individual dessert.

  • Sabrina says:

    I didn’t read all the above comments so I’m sure someone might covered this, but my personal fave is to use them for homemade donuts. I grew up eating them as a special treat…SO YUMMY! You just make holes in the middle and fry each side until golden then sprinkle with sugar.

  • Lorrie says:

    Resurrection Rolls!

    It’s the perfect time of year for canned biscuits! They’re great for “Resurrection Rolls”! Use a large marshmallow and dip it in melted butter and then sprinkle it in cinnamon and sugar. Wrap the biscuit-dough around the marshmallow till it’s completely sealed inside. Then bake as directed on package–when you open it, the roll is empty, like the tomb on Easter morning! As you prepare them with the kiddos, remind them of how the spices on the marshmallow remind us of the spices on Jesus’s body when He was buried. And it’s a great picture for the kids that Jesus didn’t stay dead, but is alive today! (Nice to incorporate scripture as you chat…)

    We like to make these every Easter for breakfast before church!

  • Joy says:

    Gorilla Bread!!!

  • Andrea says:

    I was like that about a month ago when I picked up several cans @ just about free. So I came up with this recipe, and they were really yummy.

  • Heidi says:

    You probably have plenty of other suggestions you will use, but here’s one more. I never buy them, but one of my favorite pillsburry recipes with them is their Chicken to Go Biscuits. Look for it on their website, it’s basically chicken diced up with a bit of milk and cheese and then made into a pocket in the biscuit and then dipped in egg and coated with crushed corn flakes and then baked. It’s quite “kid-friendly”!

  • Chicken Dumplings
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can milk
    mix and pour over biscuits in a cake pan and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 till golden brown and bubbly.

  • Leigha says:

    I haven’t read all the other comments, but we sometimes make miniature pizzas with refrigerated dough. Just separate the biscuits and flatten them a little with the back of a spoon. Spread pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni or any other toppings on the biscuits and bake at the recommended time on the can. It’s easy and fun and I’m sure your girls would love to make them!

  • Robin says:

    Italian Biscuit Flatbread (aka “Crack Bread” because they’re so addictive!)

    1/3cup mayonnaise
    1/3cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4teaspoon dried basil leaves
    1/4teaspoon dried oregano leaves
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 (12-oz.) can Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits

    Heat oven to 400°F. In small bowl, combine mayonnaise and cheese; mix well. Stir in basil, oregano, and garlic.
    Separate dough into 10 biscuits. On greased cookie sheets, press or roll each biscuit to form 4-inch round. Spread about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture over each round to within 1/4 inch of edge.
    Bake at 400°F. for 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

  • Jenn says:

    We don’t like them very much either but I had 11 cans in my fridge tonight. I brought 3 to our small group and we baked them as directed on the can. Then we topped them with thawed frozen strawberries and ice cream- it was a great last minute dessert.

  • Samantha says:

    Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts – cubed
    2 cans cream of chicken soup
    2 cups water
    1 cube chicken bullion
    2 10 oz packages of refridgerated bisquits

    Combine all ingredients, except bisquits in slow cooker. Cvoer and cook on low for 5-6 hours. 30 minutes before serving, cut (or tear) bisquits into 1 inch pieces. Add to slow cooker, stiring gently. Cover and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes or until bisquits fluff up.

    When making this, it looks like you’re using a ton of bisquits, but this is SO GOOD, you’ll eat all of them!

  • Laney says:

    My mom used to roll them out and put tuna salad inside and then press the dough back together and bake. It was kind of like tuna hot pockets. Yummy!

    Tuna Salad
    1 package cream cheese softened
    2 cans of drained tuna
    2 T of Italian Salad Dressing
    2 t onion powder
    2 T of dill

    Mix all ingredients together

  • Kristen says:

    Chicken and Dumplings…

    Wasn’t able to read through all post so this may have been posted.
    Chicken breast (about 4) depending on Crockpot
    2 Tbsp. Butter
    1 Can Cream of chicken (or two)
    1 Can Cream of potatoe (or two can chicken)
    Put chicken in crockpot then add rest of ingredients on top. Cook on Low for 5-6 hours or 3 hours on high. If use regular size crockpot you will only need one thing of biscuits if large you will need two. About 45 minutes before time is up take biscuits and divide each biscuit into 4 and roll into balls then when all biscuits are rolled put all of them in crockpot on top of mixture. I usually turn my crockpot on high when I add the biscuits to make sure they are done in time. When they are golden on the side and not doughy your dinner is ready. Quick and easy

  • Amber says:

    Flatten them and dry cook them on a griddle. Yummy flatbread!

  • Lyn says:

    One recipe we have done is it to poke your finger through them (to make them look like doughnuts) deep fry each side until golden brown and them dip in a powder sugar frosting. Powder sugar mixed with just a little bit of milk and vanilla These are so yummy.

  • Tena says:

    We almost never buy them either, but with all the great deals the last couple weeks, we’ve been buying several cans at a time. My favorite thing to use them for (other than just baking and eating them with homemade jam, yum!) is to make mini-shepherd’s pie type things. Basically make shepherd’s pie with minimal juices and no mashed potatoes on top, then flatten a Grand’s biscuit to about 1/4″ thick and place a big spoonful of the filling in the center. Pinch the sides of the biscuit together, place the seam down on a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden. Enjoy! 🙂

  • Sabrina says:

    I have had this exact thing and found a ton of ways to use them. I think my favorite was bubble pizza but there was also biscuit taco cups… All are on my blog:)

  • Michelle says:

    It looks like Kristen already posted a similar recipe, but the only thing I ever buy and use canned biscuits for is making my crockpot chicken and dumplings. I posted the recipe this week on my recipe blog:
    We just enjoyed this tonight again actually. Very easy and yummy meal.

  • Natalie says:

    Super easy and yummy!

    Parmesan Knots

    1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
    1/4 cup canola oil
    3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    Cut each biscuit into thirds. Roll each piece into a 3-in. rope and tie into a knot; tuck ends under. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
    In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; add the warm knots and gently toss to coat. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

    • Lea says:

      @Natalie, A friend brought these to our Christmas party and they were AWESOME!!!! I couldn’t believe that they were made from refrigerator biscuits, they tasted like they came from a specialty bakery! (Of course I’m not sure if this is the exact recipe as I didn’t ask her for it, but it sounds just like what she described, I think it would be detrimental to my weight if I made them in my own home!)

  • Rebecca says:

    Cinnamon Rolls
    flatten out into a large sheet, make a filling (I use my magic bullet) of butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, and a small handful of quick oats. Spread out onto the dough, roll up, and cut into disks, arrange in a pie pan and bake, top with frosting/glaze of milk, powdered sugar, and a dallop of butter (also mixed in the magic bullet.

  • Kyle says:

    cut the middle out with a water bottle cap and fry them up to make donuts…frost them or roll them in cinnamon sugar!
    Also, you can use them as dough for pizza crust…my kids love to make their own pizza…and it makes a perfect kids size portion!

  • Katherine says:

    Between my triple coupons and my one e-coupon, I paid $2.86 and got $4 back!! So, I now have 6 cans of them myself. I was planning to make my own egg and sausage biscuits sometime this weekend–basically just take cooked eggs and sausage patties and put them between a sliced biscuit, maybe with some cheese. I am also going to try them in one of my favorite recipes for Chicken Broccoli Pot Pies. The recipe calls for Flaky Layers biscuits that come in a 12 oz can, but I’m guessing that these biscuits will work just as well. Since these cans are a bit larger, I’ll either just add more of the other ingredients, or maybe set aside a few of the extra biscuits to eat later on their own. Anyway, here’s the recipe that I got from Pillsbury:

    1 (12 oz) can Pillsbury Golden Layers refrigerated biscuits
    2/3 cup shredded American or cheddar cheese
    2/3 cup crisp rice cereal
    1 (9 oz) pkg frozen cut broccoli, thawed
    1 cup cubed cooked chicken or turkey
    1 (10 ¾ oz) can reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken or mushroom soup
    1/3 cup sliced almonds

    1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Place 1 biscuit in each ungreased muffin cup; firmly press in bottom and up sides, forming ½-inch rim over edge of muffin cup. Spoon about 1 Tbls each of cheese and cereal into each biscuit-lined cup. Press mixture into bottom of each cup.
    2. Cut large pieces of broccoli in half. In large bowl, combine broccoli, chicken, and soup; mix well. Spoon about 1/3 cup of chicken mixture over cereal. Cups will be full. Sprinkle with almonds.
    3. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until edges of biscuits are deep golden brown.

    I know the Rice Krispies at the bottom sound odd, but somehow it works! Really, this is one of my favorite recipes cause it’s easy and tasty!

    Thanks for posting this and starting the discussion–I’m inspired by some of the other comments to try biscuit pizzas myself!

  • Jody M says:

    Make chicken pot pie, but instead of using crust, just pour the mixture over the cooked biscuits.

  • Heather says:

    You could use the biscuits to make chicken dumplings in the crockpot. Instead of making homemade dumplings cut the biscuits in quarters and throw them in with the soup. I’ve made it before and turned out really yummy. I don’t have the recipe on hand or I’d type it in.

  • Make ham biscuits! Press the biscuits into greased muffin tins. You want to press them up the sides so you have a well in the middle. Fill with chopped apple, shredded cheese (I like cheddar) and diced ham. Yum!


  • I love to make chicken pot pie with them. Just use a 9×13 pan. Put your pot pie filling in it and top with the biscuits. Its AWESOME!!

  • Amy says:

    My friend keeps a cooking blog, and I have tried this recipe of hers…sooo good! It calls for canned crescent rolls, but I wonder if you would do something with the biscuits by rolling them out or something…never have tried something like that! 🙂 Have a good day!

  • Rebecca says:

    I am seeing suggestions for monkey bread, but I am not seeing any recipes for this…of course the hour is late and I am probably half a sleep! LOL! I have a Monkey bread recipe, but all the yummy stuff does not get soaked up—-I found out he hard way!

    Here is the recipe, and any ideas would be apprciated on the excess liquid that is left.

  • karen says:

    i roll them flat, then put a little pepperoni & cheese in them & pich tehm together. then drop them into a bundt pan & bake @ 350 for about 30-40 mins. invert pan onto plate & you have pull apart pizza bites. serve with dunking sauce.

  • Jessica says:

    My husband likes to wrap them around Hot dogs. They make the perfect camping food and great easy snack for the kids during breaks. You just flatten them and wrap them around the dog, pop them in the oven according to the directions on the can

  • Angel says:

    Pinapple Creamcheese Biscits
    -Drain juice from a can of pinapple (save back about 1/2 cup)
    -crush pinapple
    -mix one block cream cheeze with disired amount of pinapple, mix in a little powdered sugar and enough juice that the mixture is creamy.
    -In muffin tin put a biscuit shaped like a bowl
    -Spoon creamcheeze mixture and bake using biscuit directions.
    -If not done…bake a little more
    -Especialy good with refrigorator cresonts…could use a different fruit

  • One of the more popular recipes on our site is the bubble pizza. Go to to see the recipe.

    Also, biscuits in a tube freeze and thaw wonderfully, so don’t feel like you have to rush to use it all up! 😉

  • Maria Miller says:

    Wow! You’ve gotten a lot of comments on this one. Here’s what I like to do with them.

    Sticky Buns
    (Kate Gosselin’s recipe)

    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
    1/2 cup raisins, if desired
    1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan. In large plastic food-storage bag, mix sugar and cinnamon. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan, adding walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces. Mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.

    *Make sure they are baked all the way. They are not good if the buns are doughy. I speak from personal experience. 🙂

  • Lisa says:

    Bar-b-cups – Just cook either chicken in the crock in bbq sauce or ground beef in a skillet than add bbq sauce. Using a muffin tin place one biscuit in each well and then push it down in forcing the biscuit dough up the the sides of the well. Fill with your bbq meat and top with the cheese of your choice. Bake according to package time and temp.

  • Misty says:

    Unroll them into one big slab and make a pizza crust out of them.

  • AmyF says:

    We use them for many things but with the weather warming up it reminded me of one of our favorites. When we go camping we take canned bisquits with us. Take the individual bisquit and shape it like a donut and cook in oil. We either roll the finished product in powder sugar or use the premade chocolate frosting to top them. Kids love having these for breakfast.

  • Melissa says:

    We use them for quick pepperoni rolls – which, for some reason, are always a huge hit for lunch, dinner, snack or company. We just roll them out, put a couple pieces of pepperoni in it and a little bit of mozzarella, then roll them up and bake for about 13 minutes. Then serve with pasta sauce for dipping. These freeze great too!

  • Monica says:

    Hi Crystal,

    I have not read all the comments – but my first thoughts are:

    Resurrection Rolls! or Bunny Biscuits with Easter being this weekend, these would both be a treat!

    Make the biscuits and then split open and make little pizzas for your girls lunches.

    We love Saturday morning donuts made out of biscuits. Cut a hole out of the middle with a cookie cutter and cook in oil. Roll in sugar – voila!

  • Michelle says:

    I use them to make mini pizzas and I also use them to make pigs in a blanket. The kids just love them!

  • Trisha Bolden says:

    You can mash them into a muffin tin like a pie crust. Once they’ve been baked, you can freeze them and pull them out as you need them. You can put pudding or fruit filling in them. You can make quiches with them.

  • Jessica says:

    We make a pizza casserole…. cut the biscuits up into 4-6 pieces each, dump some pizza sauce and mix. Layer in a large pan (dont over crowd – takes forever to bake then!), layer pizza toppings – pepperoni, mushrooms, etc, some cheese and bake at 350 until no longer doughy. Enjoy!

  • Bridget says:

    I used them for a school project where every student made their own individual apple pie. Flatten one biscuit out for the bottom, maybe give it a bit of a bowl shape. Fill the bowl with apple slices, a bit of sugar and cinnamon. Flatten a second biscuit, place it on top of your pie and pinch the edges together. Bake and enjoy! A tasty treat/dessert and a fun activity for the kids. Perhaps an activity you could use at a holiday gathering this weekend?

  • Megan says:

    Use them to make mini pizzas or even calzones

  • Danielle says:

    You can roll the biscuits out just a little bit, put some raspberry (or your choice) jelly in the middle and fold them in half. Brush them with milk, sprinkle with a little sugar and bake. They are “homemade” scones and perfect for a brunch.

  • Emily F says:

    We make biscuit cups, cut each biscuit in half and flatten then place in a muffin tin. Fill each with cheese, your choice of breakfast meat or ham, diced onions and then fill 2/3rds of the way with beaten eggs. Bake for 20 minutes and you have breakfast for the week and each cup is worth 120 calories.

  • Suzanne says:

    DOUGHNUTS!!! Go to and search for her recipe… basically you just cut a hole in the biscuit and then fry it and dip it in sugar. So delish!

  • Rhonda says:

    I make pepperoni rolls with them. Cut a Grand biscuit in half. Roll out with my pampered chef little roller. Add 5 pieces of pepperoni & some cheese. Roll up. Bake at time & temperature on can. You can add pepper rings as well. They are a nice size for little hands as well.


    Make into cup shape in a cupcake pan. Add sloppy joe and some cheddar cheese on top. Bake.


    Bake & freeze biscuits. I only bake them until they are just starting to turn golden brown. Freeze. Then when I take them out, I put back in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Done and just as fresh as if I just made them.

  • sherrie says:

    I havent read through all the comments, so some of these ideas may be repeats, but monkey bread is divine, although a major sugary treat.

    I absolutely love grands biscuits as just biscuits – they are so fluffy and they taste good too – so dont be ashamed to eat them instead of homemeade! 🙂

    And lastly, you can use them for recipes that you normally have rice or noodles on the side and serve with some sort of sauce. For instance, I’ll make creamed tuna (basically a cream sauce with tuna a peas) and then serve that over noodles or rice, but you can also serve it over biscuits – it’s really good that way. Kind of like biscuits and gravy – that’s another idea! 🙂

  • Angie says:

    I make doughnuts out of the and the kids think it is great just like I did when I was little. I also and rolling them out and the knotting them toss them in parmesan cheese with a tiny bit of garlic and bake. We NEVER use refridgerated biscuits. I always use the frozen ones (I can’t make homemade) But I got paid to get them from Meijer awhile back and froze them. I am in charge of snacks at our Ladies Missionary meeting on Monday so I plan on making the knots.

  • michelle says:

    This is my ALL TIME fav recipe with the canned biscuits. We hardly ever buy them but this is what I make when we do!

  • Rebecca says:

    Donuts, Monkey Bread, Chx Pot Pie, Sloppy Joe Pocket, and or Pizza.

  • Michelle says:

    With Easter just around the corner you could make He’s Alive Biscuits.

    Take the biscuits and flatten them with your hand, put a regular size marshmallow on the biscuit and close the biscuit around the marshmallow. Dip the biscuit in melted butter and roll in cinnamon sugar. Bake as directed. Let cool. When you eat the biscuit, it will be empty inside – just like the tomb was empty. They taste yummy too!

  • Cherith says:

    Donuts! Cut a hole in the center and fry ’em up! (I use a water bottle lid to make the hole.) And toss them around in a bowl of powdered sugar. Best and easiest donuts ever!

  • ginger says:

    make some taco meat spread out the bisquits so they are bigger, put some taco meat and cheese on each round, cover the meat with the bisquit and then bake…mmm!

    or of course breakfast sandwiches!!! delish!

  • JR911 says:

    1) Bake the biscuits, slice, add in a slice of cheese and a meat (cooked sausage, ham, etc). Wrap in plastic wrap, place wrapped sandwiches in a freezer bag and freeze. To eat-take 1 sandwich, loosen the plastic wrap and microwave 1 min (more if needed).

    2) Cinnamon buns, monkey bread, apple “fritter”, etc.

    3) I also cook biscuits, tear apart into bite size pieces and freeze to use for biscuits and gravy later.

  • Lisa Marie says:

    Separate the biscuits. Roll each one out as big as you like. Add Pizza Sauce and your favorite Pizza Toppings for personal sized Pizza’s. Our kids love to make these. Yum.

  • Melissa says:

    I love to make what I call “Cheater Chicken and Dumplings.” In a medium/large saucepan, bring one or two cans of undiluted cream of chicken soup to a boil (depending on how much gravy you want). Using one tube of biscuits, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Stir into soup. Reduce heat to med-low. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. No peaking! My mom made this all the time when I was little. It’s so easy, and it is easy to double or triple.

  • Lana says:

    I have read that you can freeze them but I have never tried it. They are fine for at least a month past the expiration date. I make garlic biscuits with them. Pull them appart into 2 smaller biscuits. Spread the tops with a mix of margarine of butter and garlic salt.(1 t. garlic salt to a stick of butter or marg.) Then bake on a baking sheet. Serve with any Italian meal.

  • Celeste says:

    Check out the Pillsbury website. They have lots of recipes based on their products. I’ve made “deep dish” pizza and a Mexican casserole with Grands biscuits–both recipes I found on there.

  • Heidi says:

    You can use the recipe in Pillsbury Creat an Easy Wow! 2010 book that you spoke about earlier in your blog. There is one called Grands! Little Pies that I want to try.

    There are so many good ideas that I will try from this post!

  • Merlin says:

    I didn’t have time to read through all the comments either, but got a couple ideas here:

    Pigs in a blanket – wrap the biscuit dough around the “lil’smokies” and bake till done. Little kids LOVE that (I do too!)

    Great to use for cobblers and fruit based dumplings!

  • Andrea says:

    Make a pot pie filling and place the biscuits on top and bake. It’s really good.

    LOL, if you tasted my homemade biscuits, you would prefer the canned!! Maybe you could post your biscuit recipe. I have no luck at all making the things.

  • Beverly Calloway says:


    Stick your finger thru the middle, shape into a donut, roll in a cinnamon/sugar mixture, then fry. Delicious! We rarely eat fried food but I remember making these as kids. Serve them with ice cream for a yummy summer treat!

  • Melodie says:

    Don’t know if this one has been mentioned yet but I use them in muffin tins ( split them, one for top one for bottom) and fill with ham and cheese or cooked chicken and broccoli…..homemade hot pockets!

  • Kelly Powell says:

    It is almost Easter so you could make Resurrection Bread. You can find the recipe at It is not only good to eat but it makes a great reference for children on the significance of this holiday.

  • Eden says:

    My immediate thought was MONKEY BREAD! It’ll take several cans for each recipe – and your friends will LOVE you if you drop one off at their house. I’ve also seen blogs where they’ve used the concept of Monkey Bread but made it into Monkey Muffins – which you could then freeze and reheat later.

  • Amy Pendleton says:

    Flatten them out and make mini individual pizzas. A little pizza sauce and cheese and thats all you need. My kids love them and they are easy to make and make ahead of time and stick in frid. for a quick snack to heat up.

  • Candice says:

    Okay – I see you have a ton of responses but I have to say my favorite thing to do with Grands biscuits is to make breakfast empanadas. Cook up some eggs (scrambled works best-and it only takes 3 for 1 package of biscuits) with 3-4 pieces of bacon crumbled up in them. Thne mix 1/2 a block of cream cheese (room temp) with 4 oz. shredded cheddar – or your favorite cheese with some parsley and salt & pepper if you like them on your eggs. Then spoon approx 2Tbsp cheese mixture on a flattened biscuit – and a spoon of the egg & bacon. Fold the biscuit closed and pinch the sides — bake according to the directions on the package — or under cook just a bit and freeze for an easy breakfast – on the run these are GREAT! A little time consuming but Delicious!!

  • Debbie M says:

    Tuna Biscuit Bake

    Whop the can of biscuits upside the counter to open it and line the bottom of a casserole dish with the biscuits.

    Mix a can of cream of mushroom soup with two cans of tuna and a half a cup of milk and pour that over the biscuits.

    Bake in a 475-degree oven until “5 minutes before the biscuits brown” (10 to 15 minutes), then sprinkle a cup of cheddar cheese over the top and cook 5 more minutes.

    It’s fast and delicious, even with skim milk, and a little healthier than monkey bread. I think the Grands Biscuits has more dough than a other cans of whop biscuits, so you might have to leave one or two out for this recipe to be ideal (just compare weights at the store). And some people like to add peas.

  • leigh says:

    Just in time for Easter…a friend shared this with me, and we plan to do it this weekend!

    Resurrection Buns
    To most Christians, Easter is probably the holiest of holidays celebrated. Family traditions are important during this holiday.

    Each child takes a Grand (or other large ) canned biscuit. They flatten the biscuit out until it’s about 5 inches across. They spread melted butter, sugar and cinnamon on it. We explain that the spices represent the spices used to anoint Jesus’ body before His burial.

    Then each child gets one large marshmallow. The marshmallow represents Jesus. It is white because it stands for His purity and His sinless life. They place the marshmallow in the center of the biscuit, then fold the sides around it forming a “tomb”. (I help the younger children pinch the sides of their tombs closed and then we place them crease side down on a baking sheet so they will not open while cooking). Put more butter, cinnamon and sugar on the outside. We talk about the sweet taste of the spices and how Jesus gave us the sweetest gift we will ever receive.

    At this point you can go ahead and bake the buns. We wait and bake them in the morning while the kids are hunting the eggs. They need to bake following the directions on the biscuit package. Then they need a little cooling time because the marshmallow will be very hot.

    When the children bite into their buns they will be surprised to find the center empty. The marshmallow has melted. As each child discovers the empty tomb, we repeat : He is not here for He is risen.

    It has become a wonderful Easter morning tradition in our home. My kids start asking weeks in advance if we’re going to make “empty tomb buns” again

  • Michelle H. says:

    Mini pizzas – flatten them out into rounds, put out the toppings and everyone can customize their own.

    Someone else already posted a recipe for BBQ baskets – I do a similar recipe but the grands made it too doughy, so I cut them in half through the middle.

    Breakfast sandwiches – fill with sliced ham, scrambled eggs, and cheese.

  • Julie Huey says:

    Freeze them. Unwrap and place them on a cookie sheet to freeze them. Then, bag them. Add several extra minutes in your baking time.

  • Lil Rosi says:

    Have you ever tried Bubble Pizza? I haven’t tried this particular recipe (I just make up my own) but the concept is very simple & variable…

  • Sabrina says:

    i use canned biscuits to make a quick crockpot chicken and dumplins recipe that is super yummy! heres a link to the recipe:

  • Hope says:

    We take brown hamburger meat, cream cheese and green chiles and fill the flattened biscuits with a couple tbsps of the mixture and bake for about 10 minutes. My kids and adults love these “hamburger pockets”. We also do fake empanadas. We roll out the biscuits flat and then coat in cornmeal (shake off throughly) and fill with our favorite south of the fillings, hamburger meat, salsa, cheese, etc and bake for about 10-15 minutes.

  • meggan says:

    you have no shortage of suggestions, but this is the only thing i’ve ever bought canned biscuits before:

    • Lori says:

      This is similar to a recipe I have used, with the exception of Pecans instead of Walnuts and we also take a block of Cream Cheese and cut it into 20 cubes, wrap a biscuit around it and roll it in cinnamon sugar mixture. Then drop in pan and pretty much follow the recipe the rest of the way. It is yummy, but the good news is that it tastes even better as leftovers! (So even though it makes 20 pieces, you don’t have to finish it when it is fresh to enjoy it at it’s best!)

  • Esther says:

    I wouldn’t even eat them for free. Last time I bought them on sale for practically free I noticed they had a ton of Trans fats in them. Although yummy, we definately didn’t want to eat them. We gave them to the boy scouts for a campout they were about to go on. Unless they have changed the trans fat thing, that is what I would suggest. Not worth eating even free.

  • Emily says:

    We have used them in the past for a pizza crust. Just squish them down on the bottom of an 8X8 or 9X13 for a pan type pizza crust. I am sure it isn’t as good as home made, but it works. We have also made tiny pizzas by flattening one biscuit and each person “decorating” thier own pizza!

  • Faith says:

    We’ve made taco cups and breakfast cups… could put just about anything in them. Just flatten and press into the cups of a muffin tin, fill with whatever, and bake… a BIG hit at my house:)

  • Faith says:

    Oh, and you can fake breadsticks in a hurry… roll out to make “sticks”, brush with butter, and sprinkle with garlic salt, parm, and oregano…. great with any sort of italian meal in a pinch…

  • Mindy says:

    We have done the same thing as Faith and used them squished in muffin tins. We filled them with broccolli, cheese and chicken but you can fill them with anything. We also use them in Bubble pizza and you can make Monkey bread with them also. MMMM…..Monkey bread. I better stop, it’s making me hungry.

  • Grace says:

    1.You can make little pizzas on them
    2. You can use them like cresent rolls and make pigs in a blanket
    3. Biscuits and gravy
    4. My husbands family makes something called chicken and goup and they use them as a bottom crust, then put chicken, veggies, and I think a white sauce over them

  • Tara! says:

    My daughter loves to make her own pizzas from canned biscuits!
    Also, I have made pigs in a blanket with them and little smokies. Then freeze them for quick dinner/lunch needs. Much better than the store bought frozen ones.

  • LuAnne :) says:

    You can pat them flat, cut a hole in the center & throw them in some oil to make donuts. Then dip them in cinnamon/sugar or in a powdered sugar glaze. Or pat them flat and put pizza toppings on them and make individual pizzas. My kids love this!

  • Azul says:

    Monkey Bread
    Garlic/Cheese Pull-Aparts
    And it seems like I once saw these used as a quick base for a Strawberry Shortcake-ish dessert.

  • Kristen says:

    Make Resurrection Buns for Easter Sunday! We did this last year (just my husband and I) and it was fun. I can’t wait to do this with our kids in the near future! You can learn how to make them here:

  • Kirsten D says:

    breadsticks to go with spaghetti and meatballs. 🙂 Cut the rolls in such a way that you can “unroll” them into one long strip, twist around a few times, brush on some butter and garlic salt, and bake.

  • Amy says:

    It’s definitely not good for you, but canned biscuits make great monkey bread! Use 2 cans worth, quarter each biscuit and roll the pieces in melted butter and then cinnamon sugar. Drop cinnamon-covered pieces into a loaf pan or bundt pan. If you have extra butter and cinnamon sugar, you can combine them and pour it over the top. Bake at the temperature listed on the can of biscuits. It may take a little longer than the can instructions to get them done all the way through.

  • Susie E. says:

    1) flatten out the biscuits, place in muffin tin, fill with sloppy joe mixture and bake for 30 minutes.
    2) Use as a topper for Cowboy beans (bb

  • Melanie says:

    Apple Turnovers
    1) Flatten out a biscuit.
    2) Spoon in some applesauce (mixed w/ cinnamon is good).
    3) Fold into a semi-circle and crimp edges together w/ fork.
    4) Sprinkle with sugar (optional) and bake until golden.
    Maybe these could be frozen after baked? I’m not sure…we never have leftovers. 🙂

    • Lea says:

      @Melanie, This sounded awesome so I had to try it – I had some honey butter biscuits on hand that I thought would be even yummier… Maybe I didn’t flatten them enough, (I think they were about 5.5″ diameter) but these did not turn out at all! I had some concerns while making them, I overfilled the first one and there was applesauce in the seal, I tried some water around the edge of the second one, but then the apple sauce just oozed out, so for the 3rd through 6th (I didn’t even make the last 2) I put maybe a tablespoon of filling and just crimped really well – all of the seals puffed open in the oven and they look like big claws, thankfully the baking tray I used has a lip so I’m not having to clean applesauce out of my oven, but the nature of the biscuit didn’t allow for an interior filling – Maybe the problem was partially that I put 2 small vent holes in the top of each, but I really think that would have prevented them popping open rather than causing it.

      • Kelly says:

        @Lea, I have a similar recipe but it is much easier. I dip the Grands in a cinnamon and sugar mixture, place them on cookie sheet and push the middles down with a large spoon. Then put apple pie filling in the middle and bake according to directions on the can. Very easy and delicious!

      • Melanie says:

        So sorry about that! I didn’t think about the fact that you were using “Grands.” I guess I’ve always just used the smaller sized/regular biscuits. That’s probably what the problem was…but I’m not sure. Well, I guess that at least used up one of your packages…but sorry it was such a waste (of time…and those few cents)!!

  • Laura Davis says:

    I also vote for monkey bread! Yum!

  • Pam says:

    Barnyard Biscuits

    Place biscuits in muffin tin and shape into little cups. I roll or pull them.
    Scramble hamburger and drain fat.
    Mix cooked hamburger with bbq sauce, fill cups and top with some shredded cheese. Bake at what ever the biscuit can recomends until the filling is heated through and the biscuits are done.

    Fill the cups with whatever you want or have. Chili, leftover beef stew, chicken and gravy, just about anything that makes sense. Kids love them.

  • Stacie says:

    probably already have this one but we make monkey bread out of refrigerator biscuits (though I prefer the homemade dough for the monkey bread this is a cheap and easy way to make it).

  • Kimberly says:

    I agree with everyone else especially the monkey bread….I do the sugar, cinnamon and two cans of biscuits cut in quarters. I use a lunch bag from my kids and shake them in the cinnamon sugar then take melted butter, brown sugar and vanilla and pour over the top…I also add raisins in mine and bake…..YUMMY!!! 🙂

  • Tovah says:

    monkey bread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lucky says:

    All of these suggestions are making me want to go out and get some now!

  • Jessica F says:

    Mix 1/3 c. orange juice, 1/2 c. sugar (raw sugar or sucanat), half stick butter and 2 tsp. orange rind in a saucepan. Heat to make a sauce. Place 1 T. mixture in each muffin cup. Punch hole in biscuits (w/thumb) and place on top of mixture in each cup. Bake at 425 for 15 mins (watch carefully). Turn out upside down on waxed paper–Yummy breakfast!!

  • Sally Skerl says:

    Not sure what it is called, but it was a million dollar winner a few years ago. I think it is called chicken on the run. I don’t have the exact recipe, but I’m sure you could look on Pillsbury website and find it. It is super yummy.

  • LeeLynn says:

    I bought 16 cans of biscuits form Kroger a few weeks ago … they paid me $.02 each for them!!

  • angela fuller says:

    Hello. I use canned bisquits to make monkey bread. I have an amazing recipe for them. If you want it email me. A caterer friend of mine got the recipe because it was the best she has ever had. Let me know

    • LeeLynn says:

      @angela fuller,
      Angela, can I get the recipe, please???

      • angela fuller says:


        3 Packages of biscuit tubes
        1 cup sugar divided
        2 teaspoons cinnamon
        1 cup butter
        1/2 cup packed brown sugar
        1 butterscotch pudding mix

        Take 3 packages of biscuit tubes (10 per roll) and cut each roll into 4 pieces. Drop roll pieces into one cup of sugar, butterscotch pudding powder and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Drop Sugar-coated pieces into a well buttered bundt pan (dont squish roll pieces when placing them in the bundt pan).

        Put 1/2 cup of the leftover sugar mix and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1 cup of butter ( 2 sticks) into a small sauce pan.

        Bring this mixture just to a boil; remove from heat immedietly. Carefully drizzle over the pieces.

        Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

        Cool slightly in an upright position, then tip pan over onto the plate to remove monkey bread.

        It is really good and caramelly! I love it!

    • Pam DeAnda says:

      @angela fuller, I would love to have your recipe for the monkey bread. Thank you.

    • Nanette says:

      @angela fuller,
      I would love to have the monkey bread recipe from the caterer that you spoke about on money saving mom blog. Please email it to me it sounds like the perfect breakfast for when my in-laws come to visit.


  • Elle Kasey says:

    Bake them, cut in half (burger bun style) and use them for strawberry shortcakes.

    Bake them and freeze them. (The cans tend to expire before I can get to them.)

    Roll in seasoning by hand and bake as usual: cheddar, scallions, bacon (in any combination) or cinnamon butter or raisins.

  • Angel says:

    FREEZE them! I have 16 cans in the freezer now. Put a can in the frig to thaw 1 day before you need them. Works great, lasts longer!

  • Jan says:

    I cut them in small bites and use them in for dumplings in ckn and dumplings. I also LOVE monkey bread and use canned biscuits for that too. Other option is to donate them!

  • Trinity says:

    We make monkey bread out of bisquits.

  • Katie says:

    just cook them up and freeze them, then get them out when you’re ready and stick them in the oven to reheat.

  • Darcie says:

    I freeze them all the time and they are just as good when I actually need to use them. I make Bubble Pizza which uses about 1 tube to feed 2 people plus a day of leftovers for lunch.

  • Jackie says:

    FREEZE THEM! They’ll last forever that way 🙂

  • Jamie says:

    We don’t usually eat canned biscuits EXCEPT as doughnuts. Fry them in oil and make a glaze from powdered sugar,vanilla extract and milk. Yummo!

  • Paula D says:

    My mom uses canned biscuits to make donuts. She takes a sewing thimble and cuts out the centers and then fries them (and the centers for donut holes). Then we roll them in sugar or sugar/cinnamon mixture. Mmmm. I’ve never done it myself, but boy, it was a treat when when I was growing up or now when we are home again for holidays.

  • Carrie says:

    1. monkey bread
    2. put a chuck of cheese or dollop of jelly on top and bake – makes a great snack!
    3. flatten and stretch and put in oil to make elephant ears
    3. poke a hole in the middle and make a ring and put in oil to make donuts
    4. Cheesy chicken bake
    5. I see you have grands, cook up and split and use like a “bun” for sandwiches

  • Rebecca says:

    I love using canned biscuits (or crescents) to make “piggies in a blanket”. Use one biscuit and wrap it around a hot dog. Or quarter the biscuit, and wrap each peice around a Lit’l Smokies. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until biscuit is not gooey. Makes a great snack, supper, or appetizer.

  • Krista says:

    Monkey Bread…need the recipe? just google it or ask me

  • Mandy says:

    I use them to make bierocks (aka runzas). They freeze beautifully and make a great quick lunch or dinner.

  • Dana says:

    I will open a can, keep them stacked, use a sharp knife and slice down the middle of the biscuits. Then cut each half into 3’s…so you get 6 pieces out of each biscuit. Grease a pan and bake them as directed (keep an eye on them b/c they might cook 1-2 min. faster depending on your oven). Melt 1/4 – 1/2 (depending on your preference) of butter in a small container, add garlic powder to taste. Mix and use a brush to brush the butter mixture over the cooked biscuits once done. A quick and easy way to make garlic bread bites for spaghetti or other main dishes. My family loves them this way. Enjoy 🙂

  • Darcy says:

    You can use canned biscuits to make monkey bread or quick donuts. You can also make “pocket” foods (smoosh one biscuit, put on toppings of your choice, smoosh another biscuit, put that on top and seal the edges). I am sure you could then freeze these to have available quickly later. You could bake them up and assemble breakfast biscuits and then freeze them.

  • Krystal says:

    Crust for a breakfast cass. or pizza.

  • Love everyone else’s ideas! It’s hard to turn down free food – even though it doesn’t taste as good as homemade and is pretty bad for you!! We’re in the same boat with this deal, so this week I made chicken muffins (we used croissant dough, but flaky grands work great). I use giant muffin tins and line with dough. Mix up 1 T thyme, 1/2 t each salt and pepper, 2 T milk, 1/2 C cream cheese until smooth then add 2 C shredded chicken, 1/2 C frozen peas (or whatever, veggies optional). Fill the muffin cups and then top with more dough. Bake 20 – 25 minutes at 425. Great for lunches too as they’re kind of self-contained.

  • WHOA! Make that one TEASPOON thyme!!

  • Nancy says:

    Donate them to a food pantry!!

  • Michelle says:

    We cut holes in the middle and use them for doughnuts, and dip them in powdered sugar or a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. We also use them for slow cooker chicken and dumplings, and sometimes I’ll even combine them and roll them flat, put in some cheese and diced ham or other fillings, and use them as stromboli crusts.

  • Sara B says:

    Let the girls cut up some of them with plastic knives and make animals etc… then bake and enjoy. I’ve seen this done with canned breadstick dough, but there’s no reason you couldn’t use the biscuit dough!

  • Monique Eden says:

    I would just freeze them. I go once a month to do my grocery shopping, and I buy several of each kind of pillsbury bread, one month one type and then the next month another type. I always put everything in the freezer and they last for a very long time and I always have all sorts of bread in the house. I do the same thing with the ones I bake.

  • Lissa says:

    Carolina Clipper has a recipe for Empty Tomb Easter Breakfast Treats:

    Looks like a great visual Easter lesson for the little ones!

  • Darla says:

    We do sloppy joe in a biscuit bowl bake and top with cheese.
    We also make a chicken and biscuit casserole. It is a campbells recipe. Mix some soup, veggies, and chicken in a casserole dish and bake for 15-20 minutes. Then cut biscuits into fourths and drop them over the top and bake for another 15 minutes.

  • Jane says:

    I love to make cinnamon-pullapart bread found here:

    Kraft has lots of recipes using the canned dough 😀

  • Cathy B. says:

    I see you have lots of ideas shared here. The only thing I used canned biscuits for is a really yummy, savory pull-apart dish you can serve as a great side dish for dinner. Crystal, my family and I have enjoyed so many of your recipes, I would be happy to share this one with you, if you’re interested. Just email and let me know if you’d like it.

    Here’s one my kids always enjoyed…

    Cuban Empanadas

    8 larges Grande Biscuits
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 pound ground beef or chicken
    1/2 cup tomato sauce or picante salsa or sauce with hot taco sauce
    1/2 cup whole kernel corn
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 egg, beaten

    Flatten biscuits into circles. Cook ground meat with salt, pepper and garlic. Put meat and other ingredients, except egg in bowl to mix. Brush beaten egg around edge of flatten biscuits and put in center some mix, fold over, press edge with fork and baste with egg mixture.

    Bake 375°, 15 min. on baking sheet.

  • You can freeze them and save them for later too!

  • Pamela Laurie says:

    Our favorite way to use them is to make mini pizzas. Split the Grands in half, put on greased cookie sheet, and add your favorite toppings. We love turkey pizzas, ranch dressing, turkey lunch meat, bacon bits, and cheese. Bake 400 degrees for about 20 mins. Perfect for the little ones to make and a great lunch with some veggies and home canned fruit. Blessings!

  • candace says:

    YUMM, monkey bread 🙂 It makes the already unhealthy canned biscuits even more unhealthy ~~hahahaha!!!! I’m with you tho, I NEVER buy canned biscuits unless I get them for free (which happens every great now and then with ecoupons and manf coupons on my Randall’s trip).

  • Alicia says:

    I love serving this as a side to a salad:

    Pepper Biscuit Pull-Apart

    ¼ tsp. garlic powder
    ¼ tsp. salt, if desired
    ¼ tsp. dried oregano
    ¼ tsp. dried basil leaves
    4 ½ tsp. olive oil
    1 (12 oz.) can refrigerated flaky biscuits
    ¼ c. chopped green bell pepper
    ¼ c. chopped red bell pepper
    1 oz. (1/4 c.) shredded mozzarella cheese
    2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

    1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small bowl combine garlic powder, salt, basil and oregano; blend well, set aside.
    2. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Place 1 biscuit in center of ungreased cookie sheet. Arrange remaining biscuits in circle, edges slightly overlapping, around center biscuit. Gently press out to 10 inch circle.
    3. Brush with olive oil; top with bell peppers and cheeses. Sprinkle herb mixture over top.
    4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. To serve, pull apart warm biscuits.

    I like to make the grands biscuits into breakfast sandwiches. (homemade mcmuffins) Put egg, ham and chesse inside and eat. Very easy and tasty!!!

  • Michelle M says:

    Bubble Buns

    Take one brisket and cut in 4ths. Roll each 1/4 in a circle and roll in mayo or soft butter and a Cinnamon and sugar mix. Place all 4 quarters in a muffin pan and bake. Yummy. Easy for your girls to help and fun while doing it.

  • Christina says:

    Pampered Chef has a lot of yummy wraps:

    Chicken Broccoli Braid
    Turkey Cranberry Wreath
    Cheeseburger Twist…

    Best of all, all of them can be easily adapted to what you prefer/have on hand or to add extra veggies.

  • I haven’t read the other postings so I’m not sure if I duplicated…
    I use them to make little mini pizzas. The kids add their own toppings. (Flatten them out first.) I make homemade gravy and while I prefer to use my homemade biscuits these work great in a pinch! If you don’t want to use your biscuits right away then bake them all and freeze them! Hope that helps!

  • nikki says:

    we use them to make Friendship Bread. cut each piece into 4 pieces and roll them in a combo of 50% sugar and 50% cinnamon. toss in a buttered bread pan. the bake until bubbly at 350. pull pieces off and enjoy.

  • Beulah says:

    cut them in quarters and use them as dumplings.

    pampered chef has a few also that are pretty yummy.

  • Melodie says:

    I clip them into four bite sized wedges and dip them in my favorite creamy salad dressing. Then I use them as an appetizer. They always get rave reviews!

  • Flatten out a biscuit, stuff with deli turkey or ham and shredded cheeses, fold in half and press edges with fork for instant hot pockets 🙂

A win – win!

  • Margaret says:

    Can’t remember the exact measurements, but when my kids were little they loved these:
    Put some butter, brown sugar, walnuts in a round cake pan, put in the oven till butter melts, put the biscuits on top and bake. Turn upside down on a plate to get out of the pan. You have nice gooey breakfast treats.

  • heather says:

    Biscuits and sausage gravy! Yumm!
    You could also maybe add cheddar and garlic to them (like an easy version of red lobster biscuits!!!)

  • Tina says:

    I couldn’t find the recipe, but Paula Deen made individual pineapple upside down “cakes”. Crushed pineapple and brown sugar and a little butter, and then place the biscuit on top. They were pretty good.

  • Julie says:

    What I usually do with an overload of biscuits is make a shepherd’s pie and place the biscuits on the top as the crust. It’s very good and after they are baked you can brush a bit of butter over the top why they are warm!

  • marion says:

    They make great donughts!!! I usually just get the cheap 4 pack of pillsbury, and poke a hole in the middle, stretch them into a donut, and deep fry in a shallow pan until light golden. The kids are in charge of dipping them in cinnamon/sugar! Great for bake sales!!!!

  • Mary says:

    I bake the bisquits, cool, slice, add a frozen sausage patty, wrap and freeze for a quick breakfast on the go for my 3 teens who cannot get out of bed early enough to eat a proper breakfast. The can eat these in the car on the way to school.

  • Mary says:

    Also- put them in the freezer, defrost in fridge for a day or two before baking. I’ve done this a few times when I couldn’t help myself at a sale!

    If your a camper these make great breakfast bisquits. Cut in 1/4, wrap on hotdog stick, cook over fire, roll in cinnamon/sugar, enjoy. Kids can make their own!

    2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for pan
    1 (16.3-ounce) can refrigerated biscuits (recommended: Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers)
    1/4 cup minced walnuts
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons orange zest
    1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
    2 ounces cream cheese, softened
    2 tablespoons orange juice, or more as necessary
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch round cake pan.

    Separate the biscuit dough into 8 biscuits. Place 1 biscuit in the center of the pan. Cut the remaining biscuits in half, forming 14 half-circles. Arrange the pieces around the center biscuit with cut sides facing in the same direction. Brush melted butter over the tops of the biscuits.

    In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, granulated sugar, and orange zest. Mix well and sprinkle over biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, and orange juice. Blend until smooth adding more orange juice, if needed, to thin. Drizzle glaze over the warm coffee cake and servve.

  • AKelly says:

    Donuts have certainly been covered 😀 However, we wrapped the biscuit around a dark Hershey’s kiss and deep fried that like a donut. Awesome! Instant chocolate filled donut. Yeah, as though donuts weren’t already unhealthy enough 😀 After reading all the posts, I had to try the cream cheese/monkey bread this afternoon, and it was very good! Love your blog. Enjoy your biscuits!

  • Kellie says:

    place a couple pieces of pepperoni and moz. cheese inside biscuit. Roll in butter with italian seasonings and garlic. Bake and serve with spagetti sauce. YUM!!!

  • Shawna says:

    When I get a good deal on biscuits, I make these for my husband to heat and eat on his way to work.

    We also do sausage gravy and buscuits.

  • Mandy says:

    My favorite is so easy and yummy:

    Snip the biscuits into quarters into a greased casserole dish. Layer pizza toppings on top and bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes. Voila! Pizza casserole!

  • Joy L says:

    We roll them out with a rolling pin and fill them with yummy ingredients for pizza pockets.

  • CJ says:

    I wish I would have seen this post 2 months ago! I had to laugh at the photo of all those biscuits as I faced a similar dilemma the past couple months. I got 8 cans for free and didnt know what to do with them. I finished up my last can tonight. Most of the cans I just baked regular biscuits and froze them. I also made a mini pot pie using 1 biscuit each for the top and bottom crusts and a can of Chunky Chicken Corn Chowder for the filling. Also made a couple of cherry turnovers using canned cherry pie filling. I’ve heard that they also make great shells for fish tacos but I forgot to try that. The frozen biscuits are great after being warmed up in the toaster.

  • Jill says:

    We make a chicken and noodle or a chicken pot pie mixture and put in a 9×13 pan then place the biscuits on top for a chicken pot pie instead of making it in a pie crust. Very easy. Let me know if you need a recipe.

  • Jenna says:

    We make Train Wreck Pizza’s!!

    Cut up the biscuits, each one into about 4 pieces, then get out all the ingredients you would normally add to your pizza (besides the sauce). You just add it to your pile of like 3-4 cut up biscuits (eye ball it) and mix it all together with your hands. When done you form it into a loaf type shape, cook it at 400 until it’s brown, and then peel it apart and dip it into pizza sauce! YUMMY!!!

  • jan says:

    Scones, scones for navajo tacos, mini pizzas, sausage, biscuits and gravy…

  • clearline1 says:

    Split the biscuits in half (top & bottom). Place each in a muffin tin. Top with uncooked scrambled eggs (I use 5 or 6 for 1 dozen muffins) and a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese. You can also add cooked and crumbled sausage or bacon, but my kids love them without the meat.

  • Rebecca D. says:

    I bought the biscuits from Kroger the last time they had that great deal and you recieved the catalinas too. I took them and rolled each one individually into a disc and put garlic butter on them also some mozzarella cheese from the Kraft deal .50 each!!!! and mini pepperoni that was clearanced at out Kroger a month ago for .5o cents with the coup0n it was free. Place all ingredients in the middle of flattened biscuit fold the side over and crimp with a fork. Brush remaining garlic butter on top and bake in the oven. My family loved these. Hope yours does too. Your Coupon pal in VA. Becky Dalton

  • Karen says:

    I rarely buy canned biscuits, but as a child, I remember making this recipe with my mom and sister. It’s delicious!! and great way to use up canned biscuits!

    It’s called monkey bread –here’s a recipe:

    I never made it with nuts before–just sugar butter and cinnamon but nuts could be good too.

  • Mary Pickett says:

    Egg biscuit sandwiches, mini pizzas, or monkey bread.

  • Jacque says:

    Empanadas! Stuff leftovers into half, fold it over, put in oven at 375 for 12 minutes and viola!!

  • Cassie says:

    You can use them as a topping for a chicken pot pie.
    Boil chicken or cook chicken in crock pot (water, seasoning)
    use a casserole dish
    shredd chicken into slices into dish
    vegetables- i use mixed frozen veggies- i boil them until all ice is gone and they are slightly tender. then i pour them in the dish.
    Then use either cream of chicken soup or use your chicken broth and pour over your chicken and veggies. Season to taste. Mix well. ( Don’t use to much liquid, because your pot pie will be to runny.)smooth out mixture and flatten down.
    Then take canned bisquits and place on top of your mixture. you can make it lumpy or smooth. the dough will spread slightly so it is ok if there are small gaps. (Optional-melt 3 tablespoons of butter and pour over dough.)
    Bake for 30 min at 350 degrees or until topping is light golden brown.

  • jane says:

    i wonder if you could freeze them, they probably would explode when thawed?

    my friend makes an apetizer withem she seperates the layers and puts them in a mini muffin tin and then adds a bacon, tomato, onion, cheese (swiss or monz) 1/2 c mayo and basil
    bake 10 m at 350

  • Wendi Sisson says:

    Several have mentioned the pillsbury site, but be

    sure to go to the 100 bakeoff finalists at and

    see the AMAZING recipes that you’ll never believe

    were made with biscuits. For example look at these










  • shop4freemom says:

    they frezze well, but we also make monkey bread or something we call grandmas doughnuts. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. make up a batch of pancake mix. drop biscuits into pancake mix to coat well. deep fry until float to top. dredge in cinn suga, powdered sugar or choc syrup while hot!! Very yummy and fast to make

  • Shellie M says:

    You can make Monkey Bread and that will use them up nicely. You can make your own empanadas or make your own “hot pockets” by rolling them out, stuffing them with your favorite meat and cheese and baking them. You can freeze the empanadas or hot pockets on your freezer day cooking and have them for a quick snack or dinner. I make a version of a tuan pot pie and instead of using a pie crust for the topping, I use biscuits. I tear them in half and when the pot pie is almost finished baking I add a layer of cheese and the biscuits to the top and cook until the biscuits are brown. The kids LOVE it too.

  • Samantha R says:

    How about cinnamon rolls?
    Or our friends do these things where they shape their biscuits into “buns” (think hot dog style) and they fill them up with whatever they like: chicken and rice or hot dogs or anything you can think of.
    Cook the dough first though before filling them up. You could cook them in the oven or even over a bbq or they have these special sticks that they form the dough over and so as it cooks, there is only a hole at the top (for your filling).
    I think you could use them as pita bread/taco shells too. Just make them thin!

  • Kelli says:

    Flatten the biscuits out. Make breakfast sandwiches (scrambled eggs, cheese, cooked sausage, or whatever you like in a breakfast sandwich) by putting your filling on one biscuit, then top with another flattened biscuit. Seal the edges well and bake until golden brown.

  • Julie says:

    I let the kids make their own individual pizzas with them. Just roll them flat with a rolling pin (or smash with your hands), add sauce and cheese then bake as directed on the can. You can also make pigs-in-a-blanket. Roll out into an oval shape and pinch around the hot dog.

  • Paula Morgan says:

    just saw the email. i sometimes use canned biscuits as pineapple cakes. put a ring of sliced canned pineapple in bottom of muffin tins, put maraschino cherry in center of each ring, top with canned biscuit, cook (per package directions) until biscuit is golden brown on top. invert into serving bowls, top with whipped cream.

  • Nicole says:

    If you flatten them, you can use them in casseroles. I usually do this with canned crescent rolls, but biscuits would work too. You line the bottom with the biscuits, add in your casserole stuff, then put more biscuits on top. I like to add things in the casserole, like a creamy roux or lots of cheese sauce (I’m a cheese fiend) to make the bottom biscuits soft.

    They also do make good pie dough, just mash em all together again, and use it as a pie shell as normal, or even mini pocket pies.

  • Alison says:

    MONKEY BREAD MONKEY BREAD!! Do it on Easter morning! Yummo!

  • Yvette M says:

    I will flatten these out. Then the kids make their own personal pan pizza’s. That is always fun at our house and you usually have the toppings on hand!

  • Crystol says:

    Make personal pizzas. Roll the dough with a rolling pin and top with sauce and what ever topping you like.

  • Kathy says:

    I agree with the pizza crust idea but you can also let the kids roll them out and make their own mini pizzas…lots of fun for a sleepover or just for after school on a cold or rainy day. You can also make pizza pockets either small ones stuffed with sauce and your fav. toppings with cheese or larger ones if you put 2 together. I am not into the complicated recipes. Have a 2 year old at home and don’t have anyone to help out so I never have time.

  • Jaime says:

    In the days before canned crescent rolls mom rolled out biscuits. She buttered one side, covered it with sugar then add jelly or PDQ or cinnamon. Roll em up and bake em. Yummy!
