A paper bag like you may carry a lunch in. A tea towel was suggested also. I haven't tried that, but it should work if you watch it closely, and don't have the oven too hot.

Ok licia, thanks, I was thinking a plastic baggie that I use for sandwiches, and was wondering about putting that in the oven lol. Thanks, the paper bag will steam nicely at a low temp.

Amber, our lunch bags were bought at the grocery store, just a brown paper bag. My dad use to take a brown grocery bag, rub the outside with water and then take a loaf of day old french bread wet his hands and rub the crust, place in damp bag and put it in the oven til the bread crust got a little crispy and the inside of the bread was nice and warm..Really rescued a loafe of day or two old bread.

Another way to heat them up is to place them on a plate, put them in the microwave, along with a small glass of water (in a microwave safe cup or glass, of course). Heat for around 20 to 30 seconds (more if needed, but don't heat too long). I have always gotten nice hot, fluffy biscuits this way. Another way to do them in the microwave is to put them in a dish and cover with a slightly damp towel or paper towel before microwaving (instead of the cup of water).

How about a damp towel and on a rack in a crock pot or slow cooker? Wouldn't that work?
