Let's be honest–made-from-scratch biscuits will always have a place on our tables. But shortcuts are also welcome, especially when no one realizes they came from an easy-to-twist tube. We know the biscuit is a sacred thing—a cornerstone of Southern cuisine. But when you're on the move, it doesn't hurt to have a shortcut. These quick biscuit recipes are so good you won't know they came from a can! Turn supermarket canned biscuits into speedy meals and snacks anytime during the day.

Whether you're on the hunt for your next Saturday brunch dish or you're in need of a tailgate snack, these recipes with canned biscuits have you covered. Start your Saturday with a cinnamon roll casserole straight from the slow cooker or go savory with a sausage and egg casserole. Warm up your appetite for dinner with our Pull Apart Pizza Bread. And with our Peach Fried Pies recipe, you can even make use of that can of biscuits at dessert.
