  • 2 Tbs unsalted sweet cream butter for every 4 biscuits
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 Can of Canned biscuits - any type

Savory Topping

  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 4 Tbs freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Fresh cracked black pepper - to taste

Sweet Topping

  • 1 Tbs white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Select a cast iron skillet for the number of biscuits that you are choosing to make. If you will not make the entire can of biscuits- you can wrap the remainder tightly in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for a couple of days until ready to use. Place your butter in your cast iron skillet and place the skillet in the oven. Turn the oven on to preheat to the stated temp on your can of biscuits.
  • Mix together the topping ingredients that you choose and set aside.
  • When the oven comes to temperature, remove the skillet from the oven. Working quickly, wipe the biscuit in the melted butter and then turn it over and set it in the pan (so that both sides of the biscuit will be buttered). Be careful not to burn your fingertips - the butter is hot! Snuggle the biscuits up to one another in the pan so that they are touching. Once as many biscuits are in the pan as you desire, sprinkle with the desired topping and place the pan in the oven
  • Bake according to the package instructions for your biscuits. Remove from the oven when done. Serve immediately.


  • You can make the best canned biscuits ever by simply following these directions.  Choose the different toppings for your biscuits based on what you like best to go with your dinner.
  • You'll need to know that once cooked, your biscuits will last for 3-5 days and you can reheat them in the oven or toaster oven.  The microwave doesn't work that great for reheating bread.

Do you ever think about Paul? I think about Paul a lot. Paul who was imprisoned, beaten and mocked many times all in the name of his Christian beliefs. Most of what we know as the Bible was written by Paul in letters to one church or another.

Paul didn’t give up.

I love his words here,  encouraging others.

2 Timothy 1: 8-9

Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.

Was online looking for a way to make canned biscuits better (too lazy to make them from scratch). Your recipe cannot be any easier! When I do make these, I plan on topping them with pork sausage gravy and have them for breakfast. I'll let you know how they come out. Love the fact that you incorporate a bible verse on your page AND, Jesus Christ is listed in your rolling credits! Love it!

Thanks Pamela. I hope you enjoy. For biscuits that will have gravy over the top, I would just melt the butter in the pan and dip the biscuits into the hot butter. I wouldn't add any herbs/sweetness because gravy does the best job! However, that buttery crisp edge is wonderful with gravy! :)

I will be making the savory version of canned biscuits tonight, to accompany the chicken cutlets Italian-style & vegetable-laden, pan-fried spaghetti I am making for tonight's dinner.
