5 New Things to Do with Biscuit Dough
Biscuit Dough, 5 Ways
What a beautiful world we live in: We can pop open a tube and have fresh-baked biscuits in 15 minutes. The best part of all? This dough isn't just good for biscuits. Use it to make waffles, bao, doughnuts and more.
Savory Morning Muffins
These little quiche-inspired guys are so pretty and amazingly easy to make. Just nestle rounds of biscuit dough into muffin cups, making a hole by pushing the dough up the sides. Then mix up a little thawed, chopped spinach with diced ham, shredded Swiss, and some salt and pepper. Stuff the mixture into the holes and bake just as the tube says. Serve them, cut in half, with a fried egg.
No need to make a trip to the doughnut shop when you have biscuit dough in the house. Just lay out the biscuits and cut out the centers with small, round cookie cutters. Fry them in vegetable oil at 350 degrees F until puffed and golden brown, and spread the tops with melted chocolate while they are still warm. Colorful sprinkles make them extra festive!
These gooey, cheesy, meaty cheeseburger bombs are the perfect hunger-busting snack. Flatten out your biscuit rounds and put a couple of tablespoons of cooked ground beef in the middle. Top it with a folded-up square of American cheese and then gather the edges up to enclose the filling. Bake them, seam-side down, according to the directions on the tube. Serve them with ketchup, mustard and pickles — or whatever fun things you like to put on your burger!
Biscuit Waffles with Caramel-Pecan Sauce
You don’t have to bother mixing up waffle batter to make this delicious dish that makes an equally fantastic breakfast or dessert. Just flatten rounds of biscuit dough and cook them up (one at a time) in your waffle maker. For the sauce, toast some pecans in a pan with a little butter and add caramel sundae topping until warm. Drizzle it on the waffles and enjoy.
Chinese-influenced bao sandwiches are a hot trend right now, but the buns can be hard to find if you don’t live near an Asian grocery store. Amazingly, biscuit dough is a pretty great substitute! Flatten out the biscuit rounds and then fold them over to make half-moon shapes. Then, set up a steamer insert in a pot and steam the buns for 10 minutes. Hoisin, rotisserie chicken, cucumbers and scallions make great fillings. Don't forget the Sriracha!
