“These tender potato biscuits are great to use up those leftover mashed potatoes! We like them for breakfast, lunch or dinner!” - by LANDERSON6354
Original recipe yields 8 biscuits
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter, until pieces of butter are no larger than peas. Use a fork to stir in mashed potatoes, breaking them up into chunks. Make a well in the mixture, and pour in egg, water and milk. Stir into a loose dough using the fork.
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead for 6 or 8 times so the dough holds together. Pat the dough out to about 3/4 inch thickness, and cut into circles with a biscuit cutter or drinking glass. Place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the tops with 2 tablespoons milk.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until bottoms are golden.

"These were the lightest fluffiest biscuits I have ever baked-- and I've been baking for about 40 years! I did not use the water-- just added enough milk to make a firm biscuit dough. I am guessing s..." See moreome of the difference in texture and height is due to the various amounts of butter and/or milk in the leftover potatoes. Additionally, the type of potato may account for different results, as some are more starchy than others. My family and I are sold on these biscuits. They were also delicious warmed over the next morning for sausage and egg sandwiches. 10 stars for this recipe!"
"Pretty good biscuits! The recipe definitely needs an additional 1/4 cup of flour, plus maybe a little more. I ended up with 10 good sized tender and moist biscuits. They're a tiny bit more on the dens..." See moree side than light and airy. They're also slightly sweet. I would imagine if you cut the sugar down a tad and added some shredded cheddar and garlic salt, they would make good potato cheese biscuits- I'll have to try it next time."
