Sweet potato biscuits might just be the most delicious way to use up a small number of leftover taters. This easy recipe requires no stand mixer or special baking skills. Indeed, even a beginner baker can succeed with this method. In under 30 minutes, from start to finish, you’ll serve up piping hot, slightly sweet biscuits with a flaky, heavenly texture.
I bake these sweet potato biscuits whenever I make mashed sweet potatoes as a side dish. As most readers can tell, I loathe wasting food. Because I don’t make sweet potato casserole and stick with mashed with a light topping of brown sugar and a touch of butter, I don’t have nuts, marshmallows, or any other extras that prevent me from using up every last bit. That makes these so easy to put together.
Serving the Sweet Potato Biscuits
These sweet potato biscuits are so very versatile. Here are a few ways I serve them:
- Cut them in half and pile sliced onto the sweet potato biscuit ham for a delicious breakfast sandwich.
- Serve with your favorite soup or stew.
- Place a biscuit next to your favorite salad.
- Stack them on your cheese platter and pair them with a nice glass of dry wine.
- Makes a nice, lightly sweet counterpoint to savory, well-seasoned steak or pork chops.
