What can I do with leftover biscuits? I am on a budget.
By LeeAnn from Hampshire, TN
Use leftover biscuits for tarts, crumble and add coconut or date filling.
Crumble and use for apple, pineapple, or banana pie crust.
Layer in fruit or custard and jelly trifle.
Great for puddings.
Sandwich with strawberry jam and place in oven till jam melts and remove and cool.
Layer on a greased casserole and pour custard over and put another layer of biscuit and place in oven till biscuits brown a little and remove and cut according to the shape of the biscuits and cool and serve.
Here is a simple meal to make use of your biscuits:
1 lbs ground beef, browned with 1 small onion chopped up, stir in 1/4 cup bb que sauce & 1/4 cup catsup. Place in a baking dish, spread out and place busicuits on top in a single layer to cover meat.
Add shredded cheese and bake for 20 minutes at about 325.
I make some scambled eggs in a chicken or beef flavored gravy and warm the biscuits back up in the micro and put the eggs and gravy over them. Something cheap and easy the next morning for breakfast.
Cut in half sandwich slice style and use instead of shortcake for strawberries and whipping cream or, my preferred, raspberries and whipping cream ;-)
Speaking of sandwich style, why not make regular mini sandwiches with them?
If they are real homemade biscuits, one of our favorite ways to use them up is to split and butter them, then put them in a hot skillet long enough for the butter to melt and the inside of the biscuits to brown slightly. Turn and heat other side as well.
They are delicious with jam or jelly as a "go with" for our hot tea in the afternoons. They are also one of the better ingredients along with homemade cornbread to make dressing or stuffing for chicken or pork. Just add some sauteed chopped onions and celery and a good dash of poultry seasoning along with chicken broth. Place in a buttered dish or pan and bake at 375 degrees F until nice and brown on top. You can stuff boneless chicken breasts or thick pork chops as well and bake all together.
I would never throw away a perfectly good biscuit. LOL I'd save it for the sweet little wild birds who will appreciate such a nice treat. Julia in Boca Raton, FL
Freeze them, or make a bread pudding.
Freeze and have biscuits for another meal. Place frozen biscuits on baking pan and put it in a cold oven. Turn oven on with temperature control set at 450 degrees. Heat for 10 minutes. If heating just a few, a toaster oven works fine. They taste like fresh baked biscuits.
They are also delicious split in half, buttered and toasted in toaster oven.
