If they haven't been cooked they make great dumplings. Just pop them on top of some heated stew and cover the pot. Let them steam, they are done when you press them with a finger and the push back.

They make Dinty Moore stew edible!!

Things I grew up with:

1) Toasted Biscuits: Split the biscuits, smear with butter, run under the broiler until toasted, serve drizzled with molasses or honey, or a smear of jam, jelly, etc.

2) Breaded Tomatoes: sauté some chopped onion in some bacon drippings, add a 14 oz can of stewed tomatoes (including juice) and heat - break up some biscuits and add to the pot - cook until heated through and biscuits are getting a little soggy.

3) Open-Faced mini Sloppy Joes: Sauté some onion, add ground beef and brown, drain well - add a squirt of tomato-based BBQ sauce and a squirt or two of tomato ketchup. Split buiscuits - run under the broiler to lightly toast, serve with meat served over the top.

Grandma never wasted anything ....

First you make a Roux... No! No! No! Wrong recipe... Ah...First you make a pot of strong coffee. (Coffee and chicory is best!) Then you quarter the canned biscuits....deep fry until golden brown...it only takes a couple of minutes...Take them up on paper towels and liberally sprinkle with powdered sugar....Pour 1/2 cup hot strong coffee, top off with hot cream/milk....Sit back, watch the sun come up and enjoy your Cafe au Lait, and "beignets"

I actually tried deep frying the uncooked biscuits before. Paula Dean's recipe..... I filled them with a honey and butter mixture after I pulled them from the fryer using a condiment style squirt bottle. One of the worse things I ever ate. I must have done something wrong because she sure made them sound good....
I think I'll pick up some powdered sugar and give your idea a try. Maybe I'm more of a sugar man than a honey man

Be sure to cut the biscuits in to fourths...cook until done...shouldn't take long...fry just a couple and try them...then adjust your cooking time accordingly... IMO Don't/Do Not listen to Miss Deen!!

Have Fun & Enjoy!!!

Your way sounds much better

I just remembered something else a friend of mine does - cut the raw biscuits into quarters, mix some sugar and cinnamon together in a bag, then shake the biscuit pieces in the bag to coat evenly. Bake as usual.

I'll bet these quartered and cooked ideas I'm getting would be great to keep in a ziploc for snacks. Like donut holes.

We have found when using biscuits for doughnuts, the plain old refrigerator biscuits are best. The flaky ones don't seem to fry right, at least for us. Just another thought.

Thanks. I know the ones you are talking about. I like the big flaky ones for sausage gravy, but I also want to buy what I am going to use all up, too.
