Theres something about the cooler weather that makes me want some fresh, hot, sweet bread straight from the oven. One of my go-to snacks is biscuits. Biscuits are pretty much perfect with everything, especially when they are topped with jelly or sausage and gravy. There is absolutely nothing better than homemade biscuits, but canned biscuits like Pillsbury Grands definitely makes for a fast and simple snack.

But they get even better with a few additional ingredients like fruits and cheese. Or you could mix it up a bit by frying them instead of baking them. Here’s a list of recipes you can use to jazz things up for your biscuits:
