Most people think that canned biscuit dough’s only real purpose is to fill up the breadbasket on the table. It’s useful for making biscuits, and that is that. But have you ever considered transforming it into the main dish? There is nothing better than some freshly baked dough, right out of the oven.
That’s what one mom on YouTube knows very well. Since biscuits alone aren’t going to feed a hungry family, she showed us 10 additional meals using biscuit dough that are not only easy to make but also delicious. You might be surprised by just how many alternative uses there are for canned biscuit dough that you’ve never thought of before.
Biscuit dough can be cubed up into tiny squares and mixed with sausage, eggs, and cheese to make a fantastic breakfast casserole. No pre-soaking is required. According to the recipe, you simply mix up the ingredients and bake it at 425° for 25 minutes.
Just roll out the dough into a nice oval shape. Fill it up with whatever toppings you would like. For example, pepperoni, tomato sauce, and mozzarella to make a pizza calzone. Twist the edges and bake them for around 15 minutes.
The mom recommends filling your muffins with bacon, cheese, and scallions. Wrap up the canned biscuit dough around the filling and place it into a muffin tin. Brush a little egg wash on top and sprinkle on some everything-bagel seasoning.
4. Monkey Bread
Quarter the biscuits and toss them into cinnamon sugar. Place all of them into a tube pan and pour on some butter and brown sugar. The end result is a deliciously sticky monkey bread that can be pulled apart and enjoyed, piece by piece. Check the recipe here.
5. Pigs In A Blanket
It’s one of the best appetizers for parties and events, and luckily, it can be made extremely easily. It only takes a few seconds to prepare. Wrap the canned biscuit dough around your choice of sausages or hotdogs and bake away.
6. Garlic Knots
Garlic knots made using biscuit dough are sweet, savory, and according to the recipe, super simple to toss together. Cut a biscuit in half, roll the dough out into a six-inch log, and tie it into a knot. After baking, brush the knots with some garlic butter and serve with a side of marinara.
7. Pie Crust
It doesn’t matter whether you are making a pie as a dessert or a tasty meat-pie for a full meal, biscuit dough is a great option. The mom in the video used the dough to make a chicken pot pie. The biscuits can simply be layered across the top to cover it up.
“If you haven’t been using canned biscuits to make dumplings, you’ve been doing it wrong,” jokes the mom. The biscuits can be chopped up into small pieces, flattened, and tossed right into the chicken and dumplings pot. It’s a great warm and comforting meal for any family.
Cut the center out of the biscuit dough with a measuring spoon or cookie cutter. Fry them in oil, and drain them afterward on paper towels. Top them with powdered sugar or a homemade glaze. They won’t taste exactly like bakery doughnuts, but they’re still quite delicious.
10. Waffle Bites
Brush a small amount of butter on the waffle iron, throw in a slice of biscuit dough in each section, and you’re good to go. The hardest part is waiting for them to finish cooking. Top them with some additional butter and a generous amount of syrup when they’re done.
This list has given us some great new ideas for using canned biscuit dough. However, why limit yourself to just ten options? Use your imagination! From bacon-cream cheese bombs to sticky buns, to cherry danishes, the recipe possibilities are endless.
