Biscuits (and Gravy).

February 20, 2017 in Category: Product Stories

We've long been fans of the ease of bread from a tube. We know, doesn't sound very "foodie" of us. But in fact, 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 the essence of epicurean (and impossible to resist!). 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.) What sets us apart from some of those familiar canister packages out in the market? Our version is made without hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors or preservatives. Really!

Prepping these biscuits couldn't be simpler: pop open the tube, place the individual portions of biscuit dough 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 & bacon to barbecue works here. Our can-you-believe-it-?  value of $2.99 for each 16 ounce tube of eight Biscuits is just the gravy on top of their quick-bake convenience, versatility and mouthwatering, buttery flavor.

As any breakfast aficionado is apt to declare, it's difficult to find a pairing that beats a fluffy biscuit topped with a hearty helping of gravy. With these recipes and a tube of Trader Joe's Buttermilk Biscuits at hand, you'll be on your way to gravy goodness (without making a trip to the diner).

Biscuits & Gravy Casserole

Key to Gravy Goodness: You can't make classic biscuits and gravy without savory pork sausage—this much we know is true. This casseroled take on the quintessential recipe features our All Natural, No Antibiotics Ever Ground Pork. Made from pigs raised on an all-vegetarian diet without hormones or antibiotics—ever, this Ground Pork is 80% lean and 20% fat, so it cooks up super moist and tender. We're offering convenient, 16 oz. vacuum-sealed packages for $4.99 in our fresh meat cases.

Biscuits & Spicy Soy Chorizo Gravy

Key to Gravy Goodness: Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo allows you to enjoy biscuits and meatless gravy, without the cholesterol and 60% less fat than traditional chorizo. Sounds like really good goodness to us! It's also a fantastically flavorful addition to breakfast burritos or a vegetarian breakfast hash. You'll find 12 ounce packages of Soy Chorizo in our refrigerated cases for the WOW price of $1.99 each. Note: Please remove Soy Chorizo from its plastic sleeve—this is not sausage casing and trust us, it is not edible!

Biscuits & Maple Turkey Gravy

Key to Gravy Goodness: A blend of white and dark meat that's naturally lean, Trader Joe's All Natural Ground Turkey is welcoming to all kinds of seasonings, like the maple syrup and fresh sage used in this recipe. It's made from turkeys that are raised in the U.S. on 100% vegetarian diets, without the use of added hormones (a federal standard for all poultry), and, most notably, without the use of antibiotics – ever. We're offering All Natural Ground Turkey for $3.99 per pound in our fresh meat cases, every day.
