Waffled Biscuits

Waffled Homemade Biscuits


The males in our house feel that breakfast is a must.  I cook almost every morning, even when I don’t want to.  I have been trying homemade biscuits in different ways lately.  A few of them were so good I thought I would share these with you.

I have mentioned before that we love “everything” seasoning around here.  I had been wanting to try it in a biscuit and when I finally got around to it we loved it.  It added great flavor to our breakfast sandwiches.  everything biscuit

But then I wanted to take it a bit further by waffling the biscuit (pictured at top).  I liked this even better.  The biscuit cooked up great in the waffle maker.  I did not pay attention to the green light on top of my iron that indicates when the “waffle” has cooked through.  I kept peeking until the waffled biscuits were golden brown.  It was cooked through and held up perfect for a breakfast sandwich!  I am sure this would work great with canned biscuits as well.

Savannah wanted me to try a plain biscuit this way.  So, I made up a batch of plain biscuits to waffle.  I served them with gravy but you could butter them and serve them with jam or jelly.  If you have small children I think it would be fun to cut the dough into rectangles for easy dipping.  Waffles Homemade Biscuits and Gravy
