Our bake-at-home buttermilk biscuits can be enjoyed in so many delicious of ways and though we often can’t keep enough on the table, there are times when we eagerly bake up a few too many. But, we never let a good biscuit go to waste!! We’re sharing our leftover biscuit secrets with you in the spirit of preventing food waste, and stretching the food dollar. 

NOT A CRUMBY IDEA

 

 

One option is to turn your leftover biscuits into breadcrumbs. Simply pulse them in a food processor until they are finely ground and store them in an airtight container, fridge or freezer. You can also lightly roast the crumbs in a low oven until they are crispy, for added crunch and a longer shelf-life or, toast larger chunks to make croutons! Biscuit crumbs can be used as a coating for fried chicken or fish, as a topping for casseroles, or even as a binder for meatballs. At the cafe, we use our roasted garlic & asiago biscuits as our Mac & Cheese topping and crunchy biscuit croutons on our kale caesar salad...but shhh, that’s just between you and I.

  

YOU’RE ON A CASSEROLE 

Another tasty way to use up our biscuits is to turn them into a breakfast casserole. Tear the biscuits into small pieces and mix them with eggs, milk, cheese, and your favorite breakfast meats like bacon or sausage or veggies. Bake the mixture in a casserole dish until it's golden brown and bubbly for a hearty and satisfying breakfast. 


THE SWEET SPOT 

 

 

If you're in the mood for something sweet, consider turning your leftover biscuits into a dessert. One option is to make a bread pudding by tearing the biscuits into small pieces and soaking them in a mixture of milk, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon. You can also odd nuts or fruits. Bake in a casserole dish until it's set and serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream. This works really well with Daisy’s Classic Buttermilk Biscuits, Blueberry & Maple Syrup Biscuits or our Apple & Cinnamon Bake-at-Home Biscuits.

 



IT'S A PIECE OF PIE 

For a savory twist, try making a biscuit pot pie. Sauté your favourite vegetables like carrots, peas, and onions in a skillet, then add in diced chicken or turkey and a can of cream of chicken soup or homemade béchamel. Top the mixture with torn pieces of biscuits and bake until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbling.


THE FREEZER IS YOUR FRIEND 

Finally, if you're in a rush, you can always freeze your leftover baked biscuits for later use in a ziplock bag. When you're ready to use them, simply thaw them out and reheat them in the oven or toaster oven for a quick and easy side dish or breakfast on the go. 

There are plenty of ways to use up leftover Lazy Daisy’s Bake-at-Home Buttermilk Biscuits that go beyond just reheating them for breakfast (though, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, especially when you’re feeling a little lazy). Whether you're in the mood for something sweet or savory, there's a recipe out there that can help transform your leftovers into a delicious and satisfying meal. Next time you have some extra biscuits on hand, don't let them go to waste - just experiment and have some fun in the kitchen.
