Last month, I made a huge batch of biscuits. I really overestimated how many biscuits my family would eat. So, I was left with a lot of leftover biscuits. I mean a LOT.
I started looking into the best things to do with leftover biscuits and I was really surprised. You can transform leftover biscuits into almost anything!
I tried a few recipes to use my leftover biscuits and also my leftover biscuit dough and I definitely found a few new all-time favorite dishes. Take a look at the recipe I love and see which you will make with your leftover biscuits first!
Bread pudding is one of my favorite things to make with old bread. I never thought to make it with leftover biscuits until now!
Baked biscuits are actually really good in bread pudding. They are soft, buttery and absorb a lot of the bread pudding egg mix. The biscuits and blueberries bake into a subtly sweet, tender pudding that is incredible.
Serve this dessert warm out of the oven. I highly recommend adding a little whipped cream.
You can make bakery-worthy monkey bread with just 5 ingredients. Yes, you read that correctly- just 5 simple ingredients!
This recipe will show you how to make fantastic monkey bread using leftover biscuit dough.
Biscuit dough is cut into small pieces and tossed with some cinnamon and sugar. Melted butter and brown sugar is poured over the biscuit pieces and baked. That is all you need to do!
Definitely read over the tips and tricks in this recipe before making it. I found them to be very helpful with the baking process. Little tips like getting the dessert out of the pan while it is warm are essential.
You can make this dessert in just a few minutes. This is possible because you already have leftover biscuits to use! All you need to do now is make the strawberry filling and the whipped cream.
Marinated, sliced strawberries are placed on top of buttery biscuits. If the biscuits are a little dry, that is totally okay since the strawberry syrup will soak right into them. Add a little whipped cream and you have a quick, tasty, summer dessert.
I like to add a little fresh vanilla bean scrapings to my marinated strawberries. The pretty black specks and vanilla taste are really great with the fresh berries.
Looking for something with a whole lot of flavor? Then this butter chicken dip is definitely what you need. Butter chicken is a classic Indian dish that is packed with spices.
Garam masala, cumin, garlic, and cayenne pepper make the dip spicy and hot. The shredded chicken makes it pretty filling and almost like a complete meal.
Chop up your leftover biscuits and serve them alongside this dip. The soft biscuits will soak up the dip and give you a delicious, very flavorful meal. I never thought of serving biscuits with Indian food until I tried this recipe. Now I am hooked!
These little turkey biscuits are my favorite way to use up all my holiday leftovers. All of your favorite Thanksgiving flavors are packed into a little biscuit that you can then enjoy warm for days after the holiday is over.
Extra biscuit dough is pressed into a muffin tin and then mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey and gravy is scooped into the center of the tin. Seal the dough, enclosing all the fillings, and bake!
I like to top my turkey dinner biscuits with a little cranberry sauce for some extra Thanksgiving flavor. Besides, I often have leftover cranberry sauce, too!
This recipe will work if you have leftover biscuit dough or if you have leftover baked biscuits. If you have a dough, stuff it with the shredded beef, provolone, and horseradish, and then bake. The meat and cheese will melt right into the biscuit.
If you already have baked biscuits, simply slice them in half and add the french dip ingredients to the middle. Heat up the biscuit sandwich and then enjoy!
Don’t forget the au jus sauce on the side. It is key to a good French dip! I like the premade jars of au jus you can find in the grocery store but don’t be afraid to make your own. Homemade au jus is also delicious.

I love this biscuit casserole for breakfast. It is one of my go-to recipes when I am serving a lot of people early in the morning. One recipe uses up a lot of extra biscuit dough and will serve 12 people!
Eggs, pepper, salt, milk, and shredded cheese are mixed together. Some sausage crumbles are added in and biscuits are popped on top. The whole pan bakes until bubbly and golden brown.
Make the casserole the night before and just reheat it in the morning. This makes breakfast even easier! And everyone will definitely be impressed by your culinary skills and savvy use of biscuit dough.
I love sweet and savory dishes, especially at breakfast. I am just one of those people who can’t choose between a sweet breakfast like pancakes or a savory breakfast like bacon and eggs. So I like to choose both!

The mix bakes in a casserole dish until golden brown. The result is cheesy, gooey biscuits that are filling enough to be a complete meal.
I like to add both the ham and cheese but you can definitely use just cheese. This makes a delicious vegetarian version of the cheddar pull-aparts.
One thing is for sure, you will never want plain biscuits again after trying these pull-aparts!
I love garlic bread but I rarely make it. I either don’t have leftover bread or I don’t have time to make fresh bread. Then, I discovered biscuit garlic bread and now I have been making this recipe quite often.

The biscuit dough is stuffed with fresh mozzarella and then baked. As soon as they come out of the oven, they are brushed with melted butter, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. So simple but soooo good!
I like to serve these with some marinara dipping sauce. They make a great passed appetizer or game-day snack.
If you have leftover buttermilk biscuit dough, monkey bread minis are what you should make. These super sweet little muffin bites really benefit from the tangy taste of buttermilk in the biscuit dough.
The recipe uses store-bought buttermilk biscuits but feels free to use homemade dough instead. I have tried both and they both work well.
Biscuit dough is chopped and mixed with cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, and melted butter. The mix is divided into small muffin cups and then baked.
The result is small, bite-sized monkey bread muffins that are perfect for breakfast or for dinner.
