I left some biscuits out overnight by accident & they are quite dry now (they weren't very moist to begin with). I am trying to find a use for them so that I don't have to throw them out. Any ideas?

Thanks!

lightly steam them and they should be fine again. If they are still a little dry then use them as biscuits and gravy.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

Has anyone tried making them into bread crumbs?

Bread crumbs would be fine. I'd probably cut them up and use them in a casserole with eggs and milk.

I make everything into breadcrumbs. Crackers, biscuits, bread, its all the same, and its all yummy. I even know of people who use cereal thats gone stale as bread crumbs. Since I don't eat cereal, thats not a problem for me.

Just cut or crumble them to the size you want, and bake em for a bit. I usually do my breadcrumbs with olive oil and salt and pper, but its not necessary. Then freeze them if you won't use them right away. Works well.

Yeah, I was also going to say breadcrumbs. I keep a random assortment of stale bread products in my freezer and pulse it all up in the food processor after it reaches critical mass.

I've started freezing uneaten bread (and the biscuits) to make breadcrumbs with. Do you bake them first or just chop them up and use them that way?

I'd dry them out a little in the oven if they weren't already stale.
