Sunday Brunch: Leftover Mashed Potato Biscuits
The smell of freshly baked biscuits can create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort throughout the house—and this recipe can also help use up ample Thanksgiving leftovers. Mashed potato biscuits are tender and flaky, but have enough structure to hold up to a slice of turkey and a dollop of gravy. Warm out of the oven with some cranberry butter, these tender biscuits go well with a hot cup of strong tea.
To make a simple cranberry compound butter, combine 1/4 cup of soft butter with a tablespoon of cranberry sauce and mix gently with a fork until well combined. Some other excellent additions to these biscuits would be finely minced chives, crumbled bacon, grated cheese, minced scallions, or finely chopped peppers.
