Splendidly Stuffed Biscuits (From a Can)- 3 Ways

Busy?

These ‘splendid’ little treasures will surely be the talk of the table when served for friends or family. Although I consider the recipes to be perfect for breakfast, these would be great for a special brunch or snack. For these to be LittleBit Busy approved, I dressed up store-bought biscuits. I used Pillsbury Grands Southern Homestyle biscuits with some sweet and savory ingredients to please anyone’s pallet.

The best part is your ability to creatively style with anything your heart desires. If you are anything like me, your creativity often begins with whatever is in your kitchen at the time!

Below are 3 ways that I turned a simple can of biscuits into a dainty indulgence.

Three Biscuits, Three Flavors

Fruity, gooey goodness!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Biscuit : 1 tsp. each of Stonewall Kitchen’s Wild Maine Blueberry Jam & Neufchatel. [1/3 Fat Cream Cheese]

Smokey, creamy goodness!

Bacon and Chive Cream Cheese Biscuit : 3 in. strip of medium-cooked Bacon & 1 tsp. Chive Cream Cheese.

Tangy, melty goodness!

Tomato and Gruyere Cheese Biscuit : small slice of Tomato & 1in. – 2in. square of Gruyere Cheese.

What You Need

In a Jam for some Jam?

Stonewall Kitchen has plenty of amazing products and gift baskets, but these jams are my jam! My first jar of Wild Maine Blueberry Jam came as a small gift (literally in my stocking one Christmas). You can find these in many different stores or shops, but I also found them [here] on Amazon! *Praise*

With this whole set, your family or guests will have a variety to choose from!
