'Fried' Biscuits

I'm really making an effort to use up leftovers. I've been bad about sticking all the leftovers in the fridge, just to throw them out a few days later. I hate being so wasteful! It was actually a resolution I made for myself last year, and I think I've done pretty good at sticking to it. Just the other day I posted the Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole, which was a great way to use leftover chicken, turkey or ham!Guilty!
Today, I have a way to 're-purpose' those leftover biscuits. Now, granted, we don't get too many leftover biscuits in this house, because my kids love some bread products. They came by it honest! 
My mom used to do this frequently when I was growing up, and I loved them! I mean really, bread is good, but fried bread?! Holy cow.  
Now that I'm older and we know that frying is bad (boo!) I usually just "fry" mine in a skillet with Pam cooking spray. Or sometimes a little butta.

Fried Biscuits

Leftover biscuits, cut in half (horizontally)
Pam cooking spray or butter...or if you are really going all out, bacon grease!

Heat skillet over medium to medium high heat, spray with Pam (or add butter or grease) and place biscuits cut side down. Gently press down with a spatula while the biscuits are cooking. It just takes a few minutes to lightly brown the biscuits, then flip and brown the other side. 

Top biscuits with butter, jam or apple butter

You will be hoping to have leftover biscuits from now on :-) What's your favorite way to use up leftovers?


  1. I hear you about using up leftovers... sometimes it's tricky... But, I'm trying to use up more of them too. Good luck!

  2. My family loves fried buscuits.. haven't made them in forever! I think i will this week. have a great weekend.

  3. I usually just end up eating leftovers for lunch, or if I'm feeling creative I'll try to re-purpose them into something different. But we throw them out WAY too often and I hate it. And I will be trying these the next time we have biscuits. I'll make extra so we have leftovers on purpose ;-)

  4. Oh yum, yeah carbs are so not my friend!
