Holiday stuffing made with biscuits? This Appalachian custom sounded promising, but the fluffy biscuits dissolved. How could we fortify them?
Why This Recipe Works
It’s not as traditional as bread stuffing, but we wanted a recipe for Southern biscuit dressing worthy of a place on the holiday table. Mixing, rolling, and stamping out individual biscuits was time-consuming; luckily, a dump-and-stir biscuit method works just as well with much less effort. Traditional recipes use day-old biscuit “crumbs” for this dish; we discovered that pinching off and baking tiny pieces of dough achieved the same result. Getting the moisture level right was key to avoiding soggy dressing, and a few eggs added structure and richness.
