Why Make This KFC Biscuits recipe

This recipe is inspired by the popular KFC biscuits, known for their fluffy texture and buttery flavor.

Making them at home allows you to enjoy the same taste and texture without having to leave your house. They are a great addition to any meal or can be enjoyed on their own as a snack.

What are KFC biscuits made of?

KFC biscuits are typically made with flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, shortening, and buttermilk. This recipe includes butter-flavored Crisco for added richness.

What Makes These Biscuits so Flavorful? 

The combination of shortening, butter-flavored Crisco, and buttermilk give these biscuits a rich and buttery flavor. Additionally, brushing melted butter on the top of the biscuits after baking adds even more flavor.

What Goes Well With KFC Biscuits?

These biscuits pair well with a variety of dishes, including fried chicken, gravy, and soup. They also make a delicious addition to a breakfast or brunch spread, served with scrambled eggs and bacon.

Recipe Variations

To make these biscuits even more flavorful, try adding shredded cheddar cheese, chopped herbs such as rosemary or chives, or a sprinkle of garlic powder to the dough before baking.

How to Serve Biscuits

Serve biscuits warm with butter or jam, or use them as a base for breakfast sandwiches. They also make a great addition to any bread basket at dinner.
