  1. This popped up this morning and it sounded so simple good I had to try it to night. Made these on the Blackstone griddle and they came out great with our shrimp salad. We sent most of dinner time thinking of different way to use the biscuits. One way I came up with is open one side and stuff pulled bbq pork in.5 stars

  2. There is only 2 of us – Can I open up the can and use a few of them today – then refrigerate the rest of them in a zip lock to use the next day???

  3. Thanks for this idea. We put a little cinnamon and sugar on ours before we put them on the griddle.5 stars

  4. Carol Cowman says:

    I did these biscuits 30 years ago While we were camping when our boys were little It was a special treat we only did when camping.5 stars

  5. These are delicious dipped in sugar and cinnamon.5 stars

  6. Wendy G. Mask says:

    Love your recipes . I was or needed to find out how do you measure a clove of garlic? If you don’t have anything other than the garlic…. The recipe with the fried biscuits my grandchildren will love… thank you!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I hope this helps you Wendy: (Substitute 1/8 teaspoon powder for every clove of garlic called for in recipe.) OR. garlic salt (Substitute 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt for every clove of fresh garlic called for in recipe.

  7. Cannot wait to try this. Never had fried biscuits.

  8. I will definitely be making this.5 stars

  9. Opal alsup says:

    I use to shape into a donut poking a hole in the middle.fry then pour a powdered sugar glaze over.5 stars

  10. Can you freeze them after frying for use later on?

  11. Must try this! My mom used to flatten out canned biscuits and fill with fruit filling to make fried pies! Loved those and this sounds delicious too!5 stars

  12. Omg I used this for my cinnamon rolls..yummy

  13. Renee Kelly says:

    I agree with Carole: their griddle biscuits are delicious! Southern Lady, what do you think of using Grands frozen biscuits in this recipe? Of course they need time to thaw first, but I like the flavor of them much more than refrigerated ones.

  14. So I went to Bob Evan’s today and my husband and myself tried their new griddle biscuits. OMG, this biscuit has changed our lives. So, I immediately started scouring the internet for the recipe and wouldn’t you know it my favorite southern lady has a quick and easy recipe for griddle biscuits. I’m making these ASAP! Thank you.

  15. I deep fry mine when I’m frying fish

  16. Thanks..these sound yummy! Love all your recipes ..easy to make and easy to find!

  17. I literally FRY my biscuits in canola or vegetable oil. I use the ” Grands Homestyle Buttermilk” biscuits. I pre-heat a deep fryer with about 3-4 inches of oil to a temp of 350 degrees. Remove biscuits from can and place them in the hot oil.When they become golden brown, flip them with a fork and allow them to become golden brown on the flipped side. They cook fast, so do pay attention to them. These biscuits are beyond delicious!!! I love to eat them with sausages, jam, jelly, syrup or whatever you desire. Believe it or not, they DO NOT absorb a lot of oil as one would probably think. Try it!! Do not buy the ” flaky ” type biscuits because they WILL flake apart if you attempt to fry them. A co-worker told me about cooking biscuits this way many years ago and to this day, I still do.

  18. I use the honey butter biscuits punch a hole in the middle with a Iid off a bottle of water fry in oil, glaze with powdered sugar, vanilla & water, my grandson thinks I am the BEST doughnut maker in the world ❤️ Love this idea for sausage gravy when camping especially! Love your cooking too!
