One Biscuit, Three Ways

Waffles with Whipped Cream and Blackberries
Who knew biscuit dough could be prepared in more ways than one? We’ve got a trio of fresh ideas for updating your plate.
By Alyssa Vance

Throughout my childhood, there were more sleepovers that ended with a frosting-laced Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls breakfast than I can count on both hands. I also have vivid memories of peeling Grands! Flaky Layers Original Biscuits apart, layer by layer, during family dinners. Both memories speak to the reality that as a millennial mom, I’m nostalgically familiar with a few Pillsbury mainstays … those buttery crescents, cinnamon rolls, cookie dough and biscuits. 

Until recently, I thought all these mainstays should only be served as is. A biscuit was a biscuit. A crescent, a crescent. I’m quickly learning this isn’t the case. I mean, check out these Grands! Pumpkin Doughnuts and Corn Chip Crescent Tacos. Recipes like these inspired me to take one tube of refrigerated biscuits and make it three different ways.

Waffles with Whipped Cream and Blackberries

Breakfast doesn’t get much easier than this. I pressed two biscuit rounds into my waffle iron and topped them with homemade honeyed whipped cream and fresh blackberries. Breakfast was ready in less than 10 minutes. (I love this Blueberry Biscuit Waffles version too.)

Scotch Eggs

These Scotch Eggs remind me of the festival foods here in Minnesota. A hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage, fried in dough and split in half? It’s a triple threat. My version used buttery biscuit dough in lieu of crescents.

Ricotta and Spinach Fritters

I always have frozen spinach on hand (and try to sneak it into my son’s meals). I incorporated it into biscuit dough and added ricotta cheese. Then I heated up oil in a deep pan and threw the biscuits in for a couple minutes. The result? Savory, ooey-gooey fritters. Serve them with marinara dipping sauce on the side and they’re like an updated pizza. 

What about you? What are some of the creative ways you use dough?
