BoBerry Biscuits Copycat Recipe
I grew up in North Carolina, and here in the south,
our favorite Chicken and Biscuits fast food chain is Bojangles.
I won’t lie… It’s greasy. It’s buttery. It sits under a hot lamp for most of the day.
But ohhhhhhhhhhh-my-gosh. How I can eat it. ALL. DAY. LONG.
I’ve actually only had the chicken once or twice. I go to Bojangles for the biscuits (and the fries, but that’s neither here nor there…). Man alive, I love their biscuit sandwiches.
Know what else I love? Bojangles BoBerry Biscuits.
It’s one of their signature menu items– buttery biscuit, blueberries, and a sticky, sweet glaze on top.
….and a little sweet, sticky glaze on the bottom too!
That’s my favorite part ;)
Give this recipe a try next time you’re in the mood for a little something special for breakfast!
…or lunch… or dinner… or a snack…
- Biscuit Dough* (prepared either from a baking mix or from scratch, not from a can)
- 1 cup smashed blueberries
- 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 1-3 tbsp. milk
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla
- Gently fold the blueberries into the biscuit dough using a wooden spoon– try to mix a little as possible.
- Dump the dough out onto a floured surface, and, using floured hands, press and flatten the dough out to be about 1″ thick.
- Cut out rounds using a biscuit cutter.
- Bake according to biscuit recipe directions.
- Meanwhile, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk– adding the milk gradually, 1 tbsp. at a time, until you’ve reached your desired consistency for a glaze.
- Spoon the glaze over the biscuits right out of the oven and serve hot.
*I love using Bisquik, but I’m also providing my favorite from-scratch recipe below…
