Biscuit Bliss in a Tube
We've long been fans of the ease of bread from a tube. We know, not very "foodie" of us. But when time is short and appetites are long, the convenience of fresh-from-the-oven bread you can make and bake in just a few minutes is tough to resist. We've never been fans, however, of the hydrogenated oils and artificial flavors, colors & preservatives found in some of these breads, so when we found a supplier that could make this style of dough for us, without all the stuff we didn't want, well, let's just say we didn't hesitate.
Among our selection of "breads-in-a-tube" you'll find Trader Joe's Buttermilk Biscuits. They come in the familiar canister package that you peel and tap on the counter to open. (Okay, hit on the counter is probably more accurate.) Really couldn't be simpler: pop open the tube, take out the individual portions of biscuit dough, place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 16-18 minutes. They make excellent dinner rolls – butter and honey only make them better; we promise. Try them for sandwiches – anything from eggs to barbecue works here. And they can become quick-and-delicious shortcake, as well – add your favorite berries and some freshly whipped cream and you'll have an impressive dessert with very little effort.
Quick-bake convenience, versatility and our can-you-believe-it value of $2.99 for each 16 ounce tube of eight Buttermilk Biscuits… we're in love. You'll find Buttermilk Biscuits in our refrigerated case.
