Leftover biscuits are a cook’s best friend. They’re the perfect ingredients for all sorts of dishes, from breakfast to dinner and dessert. In this article, we’ll go over how to store them properly so they don’t get stale, and then give some recipes that you can make with your leftover biscuits. So if you’re ready to finally answer what to make with leftover biscuits, let’s get started!
One of the most common problems with leftover biscuits is that they turn hard and dry. It’s important to store them in an airtight container so they don’t get stale. If you need to freeze your biscuits, it’s best to put them in a freezer-safe bag so they stay fresh for longer.
With leftover biscuits, there are many possibilities! You can cut up small pieces and use them as bread crumbs when cooking meat or vegetables, or you could crumble them up into your favorite soup. If you’re feeling creative, try making these yummy brownies which are much healthier than regular brownies because they don’t contain any processed sugar!
Leftover Biscuit Brownies
Biscuit Brownies Recipe:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
4 tbsp. flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 cups of leftover broken biscuits. For the biscuit pieces that will be in the brownies I like to use the large Honey Maid type.
Instructions: First, mix together oil and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powder, flour, and vanilla extract. Gradually add this to the egg mixture in 2-3 additions until fully incorporated. Crush leftover biscuits into fine pieces (you can use a food processor for this). Stir these into the mixture and pour it into a baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until cooked through. Cool and cut as desired to serve.
These brownies taste amazing when served warm with ice cream! The biscuit pieces give them a yummy crunch, and they’re much healthier than ordinary brownies because they don’t contain any processed sugar.

Sausage Gravy Over Leftover Biscuits
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk, plus 1 tablespoon milk if needed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
6 ounces Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles (or ground sausage)
3 cups milk or cream, or a combination of the two
3 tablespoons chopped chives or green onions
How To Make the Sausage Gravy:
Begin by cooking sausage in a large skillet. Remove grease from sausage with a spoon or turkey baster and set aside. In the same skillet, add 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour and whisk together until it is combined well. Cook for 2 minutes to remove the “raw” flavor from the flour. Then add 3 cups milk (or a combination) and whisk together constantly over medium-high heat until the gravy begins to thicken. Then add sausage back in, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until thickened.
Warm up your leftover biscuits in the oven or in the microwave and pour sausage gray over the top. Top with chopped chives or green onions and enjoy.
