Biscuits

Illustration

Preparation, uses, and tips

Serve biscuits warm with honey; stuff with traditional (or soy) sausage and scrambled eggs for a breakfast sandwich.

Buying and storing tips

A few bakeries may carry biscuits, but they’re often baked at home. Ready-to-bake biscuit dough or mix is available refrigerated, frozen, or on grocery shelves. Choose the whole-grain variety whenever possible. Store cooked biscuits wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator to prevent molding, and use within a day or two.

Varieties

Biscuits are traditionally made with white flour, but a few whole-grain versions are available.
