Things You Can Make With Biscuit Dough
Chances are, unless you diligently clean your freezer out, you have at least one tube of biscuit dough lurking somewhere in there. Don’t feel bad, we have some in our freezer too. While simply throwing the dough on a pan and heating them up like biscuits is certainly an option, someone with a few culinary arts programs under their belt can do better. Here are a few interesting ways you can get some use out of that biscuit dough:
Waffles: Sure, you could always use box mix to make quick and simple waffles, but you can make breakfast even easier by putting some biscuit dough in your waffle maker for some buttery and crispy waffles. Step it up a notch by frying some bacon and tearing little pieces off and sprinkling them into the dough. Try it with sausage, cheese or peppers too! This waffle recipe from Delish Plan gives you instructions for making chicken to serve with them as well.
Mini Philly cheesesteaks: Have you ever wished you could bring a Philly cheesesteak to lunch? Surely, there’s no neat way to pack and heat up the classic sandwich unless you use biscuit dough instead of a roll. This recipe from The Gunny Sack calls for mixing the roast beef, peppers, onions and cheese and sandwiching them between two flattened pieces of biscuit dough. Seal the sides and bake for 20 minutes, and you’ll have a portable Philly cheesesteak pocket, perfect for a lunch on the go!
Apple bread: If you have more of a sweet tooth, you can also use biscuit dough to prepare a dessert. All you need is a tube of dough, an apple and some cinnamon sugar. This simple recipe from Heather’s French Press only takes about a half hour to make, so it’s perfect for a midweek pick-me-up for the family. It’ll end up being such a hit your kids will ask you to make it every week!
Jalapeno poppers: Next time you find yourself frantically searching for something quick and easy to bring to a party, look no further than these jalapeno poppers from Krista’s Kitchen. Simply mix some chilies, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, bacon and dried minced onion, and plop a spoonful into a half of a piece of biscuit dough. Stick them into a mini muffin tin, top them with a slice of jalapeno and a quick 15 minutes later, you have a party-ready appetizer!
Taco casserole: Casseroles are a weeknight’s best friend. Easily prepared the night before, this taco casserole recipe from Food.com is a great option for when you’re running a little low on time but need to feed the family. While the recipe calls for a mix of cheese, olives, ground beef, peppers and mushrooms, there’s plenty of wiggle room so you can incorporate all of your family’s favorite taco staples.
