What to serve with homemade baking powder biscuits?

if you want to serve them as a side for dinner, they would be great alongside Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak Recipe, to sop up its delicious sauce. The BEST One-Pot Chicken Stew is another great option, as well as Hungarian Goulash Recipe, and The BEST Beef Tips and Gravy Recipe. Biscuits are great with any stew-like meal!

Tips for Making Homemade Biscuits

  1. You can use 1 cup of buttermilk instead of whole milk.
  2. Grate cold or frozen butter using the box grater. This way, it will be easier and faster to combine butter and dry ingredients together.
  3. Don’t twist the cookie cutter while cutting the biscuits from the dough. This will help your biscuits to rise.
  4. Don’t over-mix the dough.

Best Way to reheat biscuits:

You can reheat leftover baking powder biscuits in the oven, in the microwave, or on the stove. I prefer reheating biscuits using the oven or a skillet.

In the oven. Place leftovers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350F oven for 5-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter. Enjoy!

In the microwave. Cover each biscuit with a damp paper towel and place them in a microwave-safe container or a plate. Microwave uncovered for 1-2 minutes. Time may depend on the number of biscuits.

On the stove. Preheat a skillet. Wrap each biscuit using aluminum foil and place in a skillet. Cover with a lid. Reheat biscuits on low heat. Flip them every 30 seconds. Biscuits will be reheated in about 2 minutes.
