There is literally no wrong way to eat a biscuit. That is just a fact. Whether you keep it simple and spread on delicious, freshly churned butter, slather it with decadent homemade clotted cream, or make a sandwich with your favorite fixings, the outcome will remain the same: biscuits + toppings = delicious. Whether you lean towards the sweet, or keep it solidly savory, biscuits are a perfect food for any time of day. That’s why we created this list of the best things to put between biscuits at breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert.
Biscuits + Butter
It’s hard to beat a classic, and there isn’t a food pairing more classic than biscuits and good, old fashioned salted butter. Life’s already complicated. Why make breakfast fussier than it needs to be? Whether you’re keeping it simple and delicious by spreading real butter between a warm-from-the-oven Buttermilk Biscuit, or kicking it up a notch with our mouthwatering flavor-packed varieties, you are destined to start your day off deliciously with this iconic pairing.
Biscuits + Clotted Cream
Clotted cream is a British delicacy made when fresh heavy cream is heated indirectly and slowly—either with steam heat or in a water bath. The result is an incredibly thick, decadent spread that is velvety and smooth. During traditional English teas, clotted cream is served with scones, but it makes an incredible, melt-in-your-mouth accompaniment on biscuits, too.
We make our clotted cream with a double boiler, but if you don’t have one you can achieve tasty results using a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of hot water. The trick here is to take your time: the smoothest, richest texture comes from moist heat that indirectly cooks the cream low and slow.
Biscuits with Jam
Where there are breakfast biscuits...there’s usually jam. And for good reason, this sweetened preserved fruit spread is readily available any time of year—even when the specific fruit and berry varieties you crave are not available or in season in your region. Of course, any kind of fruit jam pairs well with both fresh butter and clotted cream. Why not try both?
Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich
Are you more of a sausage + egg + cheese, or a bacon + eggs person? Maybe you’re vegetarian and go straight for the traditional egg + cheese pairing? Or perhaps you forget the eggs all together and prefer a classic peanut butter and jelly? No matter what you fill your breakfast sandwich with, it’s bound to be good when you’ve got a biscuit at either end.
Biscuits and Gravy
Need a comforting breakfast? Then, biscuits and gravy are in order. We love pairing our favorite Sausage Gravy with Buttermilk Biscuits, for an easy-to-make, filling breakfast or brunch that serves the whole fam.
Our go-to gravy is totally versatile. Add seasonings, herbs and spice based on your mood or what you’ve got in your pantry. We time our gravy making against our biscuit baking, ensuring the gravy is finished cooking just as our oven timer dings. That’s how we know breakfast is going to be hot, delicious and ready to serve, right when we’re ready to eat.
Biscuits for Lunch
Biscuits and Dip
Sure, you can dunk a biscuit in your favorite dip, but spreading between two sides of a warm biscuit to make a biscuit/dip sandwich is just as heavenly. Are you the sort that gravitates towards a good spinach dip? Us, too. Need a perfect pairing for a seafood feast? Try our Maryland Crab Dip! Feeling feisty and spicy? Top your Jalapeño Cheddar Biscuit with Queso Fundido. Mix and match your toppers and biscuits for endless possibilities!
Copycat Mason Dixie Classic Fried Chicken Sandwich
When covered in hot sauce and honey, our classic Fried Chicken Sandwich delivers a perfectly brined, sweet-and-spicy bite that leaves you wanting more. To make this craveworthy sandwich, you’ll first brine chicken thighs in water, sugar, salt, thyme and garlic. Then, dredge the chicken in a spiced flour mixture, and fry till golden brown. Making this perfectly crispy chicken takes just a bit of time, but it is so worth it. And luckily, we’ve taken the heavy lifting out of biscuit baking for you! Place your Buttermilk Biscuits on to a rimmed sheet pan an inch apart, pop them into a preheated oven, and bake to perfection. Top your steaming biscuits with the chicken, drizzle on your honey and hot sauce, then chow down!
BBLT (Biscuit, Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato)
Biscuits take an already near-perfect BLT sandwich to the next level. Top your favorite biscuit variety with crispy bacon, tart tomatoes, crunch lettuce and a swipe of creamy, cool mayo and enjoy!
Cheddar Biscuit Burgers
Looking for new ways to boost your summer grill-out? Why not try a Cheddar Biscuit Burger! I mean, who doesn’t love a cheeseburger? They are even better when served between biscuits made from the freshest ingredients. Grill up your burger, top it with your favorite cheese, add all the toppings you love—just put them all between a biscuit! Hot Tip: this biscuit burger bun works great with veggie burgers, too!
Feeding hungry little ones? Enjoy a kid-classic with a biscuit-y twist. Forget the dense hamburger buns or the dry, boring sandwich bread. Sloppy Joes served with biscuits are a delicious new spin on an old favorite, and are packed with flavor in every bite.
Biscuits with Lemon Thyme Butter
When combined with your favorite salted butter, this lemon juice, fresh thyme leave and garlic mixture sings! Lemon Thyme Butter just might be your next big flavor game changer. Serve it alongside your entree with a side of freshly baked biscuits at dinner (...and then spread it on warm Blueberry & Lemon Scones tomorrow morning at breakfast, too!)
Biscuit Hand Pies
Forget everything you knew about biscuits. Our Biscuit Hand Pies take putting deliciousness between layers of biscuit dough to a whole new level. Buttermilk biscuit dough is rolled out and filled with fresh apple pie filling before being baked to a golden brown. Crunchy on the outside, sweet, tart and tender on the inside. Who says baking has to be hard?
Biscuits + Chocolate Gravy Ice Cream Sandwich
Run-of-the-mill chocolate sauce doesn’t have a thing on Chocolate Gravy, a rich, tasty take on the ol’ standby. Sure you can top a warm biscuit with this delicious sauce, and enjoy a dessert that satisfies pretty much any sweet tooth. But, we love to dollop the chocolate gravy between two sides of our biscuits, add a scoop of ice cream and make an incredible ice cream sandwich.
Whether you are topping your biscuits with sweet delights or savory favorites, you are bound to fall in love with Mason Dixie Biscuits with every bite. We use only the freshest, cleanest ingredients—butter, flour, salt and aluminum-free baking powder—to ensure every biscuit you bake is the best one yet. We’re doing the work of making biscuits from scratch, so all you have to do is put your favorite ingredients between them and enjoy. Ready to take a bite?
