To help you find the perfect biscuit pairing, here are fifteen of our favorite dishes to enjoy with biscuits.

What To Eat With Biscuits?

Biscuits are versatile food that can be served with a variety of dishes, both sweet and savory. Some popular options for serving with biscuits include butter and jam, gravy, fried chicken, ham, sausage, bacon, and eggs. Additionally, biscuits can be used as a base for breakfast sandwiches or served alongside soups and stews. In general, the choice of what to serve with biscuits depends on personal taste and the occasion.

1. Creamy Mushroom and Chicken Soup

What goes better with fluffy biscuits than a steaming bowl of rich and creamy mushroom and chicken soup? This decadent soup is pure comfort food, perfect for a cold winter evening. To make it yourself, you’ll need some butter, garlic, mushrooms, chicken broth, flour, milk and half and half.

Saute the mushrooms until they’re golden brown before adding the regular milk and stirring in some thickener (flour works best).

Once you’ve got the sauce consistency right, just add your cooked chicken and season it to taste with salt and pepper. Voila! A much tastier option than buying canned soup from the store.

2. Italian-Style Meatballs With Tomato Sauce

Serving Italian-Style Meatballs with Tomato Sauce alongside a plate of biscuits can be a real crowd-pleaser. This delectable combination of cuisine is extremely flavorful and easy to make and serve.

Start by combining ground beef or pork with bread crumbs, onions, garlic, eggs, Parmesan cheese, and marinara sauce for the meatballs. Roll the mixture into small balls then fry until cooked through.

As the meatballs are cooking, create a delicious tomato sauce from diced tomatoes (fresh or canned), onion and garlic. Once finished with each preparation, combine the two in an oven dish and bake for 15 minutes or until the flavors meld together perfectly.

When it’s time to serve, pile the meatballs on top of freshly made biscuits and watch your guests dive in happily.

3. Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie is an American classic that’s always a hit with biscuits. You can either make the pot pie from scratch or purchase pre-made versions.

If you decide to make it from scratch, start with a creamy and flavorful sauce made from butter, flour, chicken broth, and milk. Then add diced chicken, carrots, celery and potatoes to the sauce before topping it with a buttery biscuit dough.

Bake the pot pie in a preheated oven until golden brown and bubbly. Serve it up with some biscuits on the side and prepare for the compliments.

4. Fried Eggs and Bacon

Start the day off right with a plate of Fried Eggs and Bacon served alongside some hot, flaky biscuits. It’s a simple yet satisfying breakfast that’s sure to wake anyone up.

For the perfect fried eggs, melt some butter in a non-stick skillet then crack two eggs in and cook until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny.

Meanwhile, fry up some bacon in a separate pan. Once the eggs and bacon are done cooking, put them on a plate with some biscuits and enjoy!

5. Biscuits With Sausage and Cheddar Omelette

Biscuits and sausage with cheddar omelette could not be a more delightful addition to your breakfast table. For that special, southern-style breakfast, just whisk together some eggs, add diced sausage and shredded cheese, then pour it in a baking dish and top it off with flaky, buttery biscuits.

This cooked-up treat is sure to bring smiles from everyone around the table! And if you really want to take this scrumptious meal over the top, sprinkle some paprika on the biscuit topping for an added smoky flavor. When setting it all out on the table, make sure you have plenty of butter and/or honey around so your guests can get creative.

6. Biscuits and Gravy With Fried Chicken

Biscuits and gravy with fried chicken is a classic Southern comfort meal that will never go out of style. It’s an easy but high-impact side dish that tastes great with fried chicken (or any poultry, really).

To make the crave-able combo just right, start by making a basic biscuit recipe using your favorite ingredients (think buttermilk, heavy cream, butter). Once they come out of the oven golden brown and fluffy, pair them with gravy made from pan-fried sausage and vegetables in a light sauce.

Last but not least top it off with some juicy fried chicken strips – because how could you not?! Of course, don’t forget to season your biscuits, gravy and chicken to taste. Now that’s what we call a scrumptious side dish!

7. Sausage Gravy Casserole

This delicious and customizable classic pairs perfectly with plain biscuits and gives them an extraordinary richness. All it takes is some sausage and biscuit mix, a few spices, some dairy ingredients, and some love to bring this savory casserole to your table.

First, cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Then break it up into crumbles with a wooden spoon. When that’s done, add in the biscuit mix and brown it while stirring intermittently until it blends with the sausage evenly.

Once that’s blended together, add ¼ cup of water to the pan along with some salt, pepper and more spices according to taste before pouring half & half or cream in slowly while stirring thoroughly. And just like that you have yourself a delectable gravy casserole that compliments any biscuit creation you may have brought onto the scene.

8. Meatloaf

Meatloaf can be a perfect dish to serve with biscuits. The rich and savory flavor of the meat pairs wonderfully with the fluffy, buttery texture of a freshly baked biscuit. When creating a classic Meatloaf dinner, consider baking it in an oven-safe skillet for extra crunch and flavor on the bottom.

Additionally, don’t be afraid to try out different ingredients for your biscuit choice – homemade biscuits laced with cheese and herbs could make this dinner irresistible. Whichever type of biscuit you serve alongside your Meatloaf dinner, it’s guaranteed to become a winner in your house.

9. Beef Stew

Beef stew may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of biscuits, but it can make an amazing accompaniment. Served with fresh, hot-out-of-the-oven biscuits, this classic comfort food is sure to please.

For the perfect beef stew, start by browning your beef in a large pot with some oil and butter. When it’s just about done, add diced onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Pour in some beef broth and let it simmer until all the vegetables are tender.

Then mix together some flour, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce with a tablespoon of tomato paste. Once that’s combined, add it to the pot and let it cook for another few minutes. When your beef stew is ready, serve it with a side of delicious biscuits – just add a dollop of butter and you’re good to go.

10. Cornbread Stuffing With Gravy

Cornbread stuffing with gravy is a hearty, comforting side dish that can pair with any main course. It’s easy to make, and ideal for a festive holiday meal or any get-together.

To make it, start by preparing your cornbread according to the package instructions. Once it’s cooked, let it cool before breaking it into small cubes. Then cook some celery and onion in a skillet with butter before adding in dried cranberries and toasted pecans.

In a separate bowl, mix together chicken broth, sage, thyme, salt and pepper before adding it to the skillet. Then fold in your cubed cornbread and mix until everything is combined. Lastly, pour the stuffing into a greased baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes before topping it off with some delicious gravy.

11. Cheese and Charcuterie Board

Everyone loves the idea of having biscuits with a delicious spread—and cheese and charcuterie boards provide the perfect answer to a biscuit-based conundrum. Not only are they easy to put together, but they add an elegant yet comforting touch to any gathering.

The key to creating the perfect charcuterie and cheese board lies in picking out a delightful combination of varieties. To start, pick out a variety of soft and semi-soft cheeses such as brie or camembert, then add in some hard-aged cheeses like Cheddar or Parmesan.

For more texture, consider adding in some fresh chèvre logs. As for the charcuterie elements, opt for cured meats like salami and prosciutto; and maybe try out something different like spicy mortadella, Coppa, and soppressata.

Completing your masterpiece with accompaniments like pitted olives, cornichons, crackers and some freshly cut fruit will make your board sing!

12. Barbecue Pulled Pork Sliders

Barbecue pulled pork sliders are a fan-favorite when it comes to game-day meals. Not only do they make for an easy, no-fuss meal, but the combination of sweet and smoky flavors is always a hit.

The key to this dish is cooking the pork just right. Start by slow-cooking your pork shoulder in a combination of apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard and chili powder. Then shred it with a pair of forks before adding in some more barbecue sauce.

Spoon the pulled pork into mini slider buns, top with some pickles and slaw, and spread butter on some freshly-baked biscuits. The sweetness of the biscuits complements the savory, smoky pork just right. And to top it all off, don’t forget the extra helping of barbecue sauce on the side.

13. Classic Beef Chili

Beef chili is a classic, hearty comfort food that everyone loves. Whether it’s a weeknight dinner or a potluck, everyone will be happy with this dish.

To make it, start by browning ground beef in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add in some diced onions, garlic and bell peppers. Then mix in chili powder, cumin, oregano and salt. Next, add a can of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and beef broth. Then simmer for 30 minutes, or until the chili thickens.

Serve with your favorite toppings, like shredded cheese, diced onions and sour cream. And don’t forget to serve it with a side of fluffy biscuits.

14. Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Shredded beef enchiladas make a zesty and savory accompaniment to biscuits. Creating this dish requires slightly more prep work than just cracking open a can of enchiladas, but with some pre-planning and careful steps, you’ll be rewarded with delicious results.

Start by shredding or dicing your favorite cut of beef, cooking it until it’s tender and easy to chew, then wrapping that tasty shredded beef in soft, warm flour or corn tortillas. Top your enchiladas with fresh jalapeno peppers, diced onions, minced garlic and melted cheese, then bake until everything is piping hot.

The final result of this scrumptious combination can take even the most boring biscuit menu from bland to grand!
