I’m excited to bring you a new side to Southern Savers.  I am teaming up with Christy from Southern Plate.  We are going to teach Southern Plate how to save money on groceries and they are going to teach us fabulous recipes to use the items we have stockpiled!  It will be great to add a gourmet flare to all of our free groceries and hopefully we can gain a few more converts to the right way of shopping.

To get us started… How many cans of biscuits do you have filling up your freezer (yes canned biscuits freeze great) and fridge??  Here are two great ideas to turn all those biscuits into something delicious.

1. Boston Creme Pies

You will need:

  1. Canned Biscuits
  2. Sugar Free Instant Jello
  3. Lite Cool Whip
  4. Vegetable Oil
  5. Milk (she uses Skim or Low fat)
  6. Chocolate Frosting

These are reported to taste better than Krispy Kreme.  That sold me!  Go here to see Christy’s directions.  You will see step by step what to do, or scroll to the bottom to see just the recipe.

2.  Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts

You will need:

  1. Canned Biscuits
  2. Vegetable Oil
  3. Margarine
  4. Cinnamon
  5. Sugar

My kids will love these!  Don’t have a doughnut holer thingy do?  Check out her tip of what else you can use.  You have no excuses now.  Go here to see Christy’s directions.  You will see step by step what to do, or scroll to the bottom to see just the recipe.  I plan to also do these with just powdered sugar, we have a lot of that lying around from the .16 cent sale last December…

Tune into Southern Plate in a couple weeks to see what we have been able to teach them!  And stay tuned for the next installment of frugal gourmet cooking…
