Biscuit Grilled Cheese with Pillsbury Grands!

Let me start by saying, that I have never cooked biscuits in a pan before, or even thought of it. Biscuits were solely oven food, but then in the recipe for Pillsbury Grands! Grilled Cheese Sandwiches you cook then biscuits in a skillet and the texture is fantastic. This will definitely be a cooking option for me from now on. The sandwiches are great, too! I made the recipe version and then switched up the cheese and added some meats. So many options! I wish I had tried a breakfast sandwich version though.

Original Biscuit Grilled Cheese

Biscuit grilled cheese is a great Back-to-School recipe, a simple change up to school night dinners or even a hot lunch for post half-day school, maybe even paired with soup once the cooler weather of Autumn finally gets here. For even more Back to School recipe ideas, download the Pillsbury recipe booklet.

makes 4 sandwiches

one 8 piece roll of Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits
2 teaspoons cooking oil
8 slices of cheese
meat and condiments, if desired

To cook the biscuits:

  1. Open roll and separate the biscuits
  2. Roll or stretch biscuits in to 5 to 5 1/2 inch rounds
  3. Heat oil in a skillet or cast iron pan over medium heat (I used cast iron, cooking times may vary with other pans. My times are lower than in the original linked recipe)
  4. Place biscuit rounds in pan with space between them, (I cooked two at a time), cook for two minutes then flip. Cook for two more minutes and remove from pan. Biscuits should be golden brown. Not too dark, they’ll go back in the pan for the grilled cheese making.
  5. Repeat until all biscuits are cooked.
To cook the grilled cheese:
  1. Place one biscuit round back in the pan, top with two slices of cheese and another biscuit on top of the cheese. Lower hear to med-low, cover and cook for 30 seconds.
  2. Flip sandwich, cover and cook for another 30 seconds to a minute until cheese is melted. I found covering the pan helped the cheese melt over lower heat to keep the biscuit from getting too brown.
  3. Depending on your type of cheese, it may take longer to melt. Also, adding meat can slow the melting times. Heating the meat a smidge before adding to the sandwich helps a bit.
Varieties (amounts are per sandwich because it is easy to make a bunch of types at once):
  1. Original: two slices American cheese
  2. Steak and Cheddar: two slices cheddar cheese (I used 1 ounce deli slices), about a 1/3 cup sliced cooked steak (roast beef would work too)
  3. Pepperoncini Steak (my personal favorite): two slices cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup sliced cooked steak, one sliced pepperoncini
  4. Turkey and Swiss: two slices swiss cheese, deli turkey, small amount of mustard spread on the top biscuit

    Why don’t I have any biscuits in my fridge RIGHT NOW?! I’m starving and these are not helping. I never would have thought to make them in a skillet either!

    I am upset I used all my biscuits. I sort of want to make these again for lunch today.

    This is the most ridiculous in the best way possible.

    I want to cook ALL the biscuits in a skillet now. Mind blown at the possibilities. Like, lets say you were totally planning on cooking Italian sausage coins in a skillet for a pasta dish tonight anyway and now are SO going to use the same skillet (with the delicious porky fat, obvs) to cook garlic-y (and maybe even cheesy) biscuits.

    Dough from a tube in a skillet. Life changing.

    I want to try cooking them in bacon fat! I am kicking myself for not thinking of it earlier. Sausage would be amazing. Porky goodness, indeed.
