Refrigerator Biscuit Recipes

Hot dogs in biscuits

This is how the hot dogs in the biscuits turn out. Yum! Grab the ketchup and mustard. These have a slice of cheese inside too. Sometimes I add chopped onion inside too, along with a squirt of mustard. See below for the recipe called "Pigs in a Blanket".

Here's a bunch of easy recipes to snack on, made from refrigerator biscuits.

I have been making these for years. Great late night snacks.

Here's recipes for my own Bubble Buttons, Pizza Pockets, Donuts, Chinese Donuts, and Pigs in a Blanket too.

Bubble Buttons

Turn on toaster oven to 400 F. Melt a half stick of margarine in the toaster oven pan. Meanwhile, Open a 10 count refrigerated biscuit package and break each biscuit into 4 pieces. When the butter is melted, take it out of toaster oven. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar (or 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 tsp molasses) to the melted butter. Stir well.

-Add the biscuit pieces turning each one to coat in the liquid with a spoon. When they are all in, put the pan in the toaster oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. When done, let cool and munch on while warm Yum Yum

Be sure to share.

Refrigerator Biscuit Donuts

Open a can of biscuits, and with your finger poke a hole in the center and stretch it out a little to make it bigger. Heat some fat, about a half inch and place them in the fat one by one. The fat doesn't have to be hot when you do this.

-As you see them browning on one side, carefully flip them over with 2 forks and let them brown on the other side.

-If you let the oil get too hot they will cook too fast and the inside won't get done. Just use medium heat.

-Drain them on paper towels and dip them in cinnamon sugar or after they cool spread icing on them, you can roll them in powdered sugar.

Chinese Donuts

Make some fluffy sugar coated donuts just like at the Chinese Restaurants that they sell 10 for $3.00. Very simple to make.

-Open a package and lay them out on a counter, and let them come to room temperature which causes them to rise. Then drop them in med-hot fat and let them brown on each side, remove and let drain on paper towels.

-When they cool enough to handle, toss then in a bag with sugar.

-In New Orleans these little treats are similar to the commonly called Benets which are French Donuts

TIP: If you don't let them come to room temperature, the inside center will not get cooked.

Pizza Pockets

Brown some ground beef, drain, and add a bit of pizza sauce or catsup to make it stick together.

-Using 2 packages of refrigerator biscuits, roll flat 2 biscuits at a time to make 4 inch circles. Add a heaping tablespoon of ground beef mixture, add some cheese.

-Pick up the 4 edges and bring towards center. pinch all ends together. Lay upside down on a cookie sheet.

-Brown in a hot oven at 400 degrees, cool then eat. 1 pkg biscuits makes 5 pizza pockets.

How to wrap your hot dogs

This is a picture of how I roll the hot dogs in the refrigerator biscuits. You can see I added a piece of American cheese underneath it too.

Pigs in a Blanket

Turn on toaster oven to 400 F.

-Open a 10 count refrigerated biscuit package. Cut 5 hot dogs in half. Cut 2 American Cheese slices in 10 pieces.

-Using a heavy drinking glass, roll each biscuit flat, (or use the palm of your hand.)

-Place a piece of cheese in the center of each circle, and a half hot dog.

-Starting from the end of the dough, roll it up and pinch the ends so the melted cheese won't drip out. Sometimes I squirt a little mustard, and put chopped onions in it.

-Lay them on your toaster oven pan, slightly separated with the pinched side down.

-Cook at 400 for about 10 min or until browned.
