2 Simple Ingredients

Frozen Biscuits – Pillsbury makes a Grands-style biscuit that comes out tall and flaky, but any brand will work.

Butter – for an extra rich flavor, brush the tops with butter and let it soak in while baking!

Variations – Season biscuits to match the menu! Stir some cinnamon sugar into the butter for a sweet biscuit or brush on melted bacon grease mixed with Italian seasonings for a savory biscuit. Top biscuits with shredded cheddar cheese (or any cheese!) in Step 2 after they’ve been flipped over and eliminate the butter.
