Got leftover biscuit dough in the fridge? Here’s a quick recipe you can make with the dough.

Grilling bell peppers makes them sweet and that in turn adds a delicious flavor to these rolls. Chargrilled peppers go really well with cream cheese. With grilled peppers and cream cheese, you really don’t need any additional spice-mixes to add flavor to the filling. All you need are salt and pepper.

While I made this with leftover biscuit dough, you can certainly make these rolls with pizza dough. The texture of course in each case will be starkly different from the other.

Serves: 12 rolls
Ingredients
Filling
  • ½ cup Cream Cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sliced Bell Peppers (refer note 1)
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt (adjust to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil
Others
  • 1 lb Buttermilk Biscuit Dough (refer note 2)
  • Butter / Milk
Note 1 - Bell Peppers
  • Use the yellow and red bell peppers for best flavor. They turn sweet when roasted/sauteed/grilled. The green bell pepper tends to turn a bit bitter.
Note - Dough
  • You can use homemade buttermilk biscuit dough (recipe on foodomania.com) or use store bough biscuit dough as well
  • You can even use pizza dough to make these rolls - but the texture of the rolls will of course be like bread and not flaky biscuits.
Instructions
Filling
  1. Grill some sliced bell peppers on a grill pan with some oil and add salt to taste. (alternatively, you can also sautee them)
  2. Then add the veggies to some cream cheese.
  3. Add some ground black pepper and mix well.
  4. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
  5. You can make the filling a day in advance.
Making the rolls
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. GRease and line a baking pan.
  2. Roll out the dough into a 9X13 inch rectangle upto 1 inch thickness. Cut it into equal portions.
  3. Take each piece of dough, add some of the filling in the middle.
  4. Bring all four sides to the center and seal it. Then roll into a neat ball of dough.
  5. Place all the prepared rolls on a baking sheet.
  6. Brush with butter or buttermilk or milk.
  7. Bake at 180 C for 15 minutes or until the rolls are cooked through.
  8. Serve fresh with your favorite condiment.
Notes
  1. You have to work quickly with buttermilk biscuit dough. The trick is to not let the butter melt. So if at any point you feel like the butter sealed in the dough is melting, return the dough back to the fridge for 5 minutes.
