What to Serve with Biscuits

You really can’t go wrong with soft, flaky biscuits. Enjoy them with any meal of the day!

Make a breakfast sandwich with bacon and eggs. Soak up soup for lunch or pair with fried chicken for dinner.

These homemade biscuit recipes are welcome at any holiday feast. Line a basket with a pretty cloth, fill it with the little breads and place it on the table so guests can help themselves.

Biscuits are delicious plain and with cold or soft butter and sweet jam. Of course, everyone knows about biscuits and gravy!
