Broccoli Alfredo "Surprise Dough" Bake

{Is anyone else deathly afraid of "surprise dough"?}
In case you are asking yourself, what in the world is 'surprise dough'? I will tell you. It's the popular doughy delights that come in a can that you find in the chilled section of your grocery store. Such items include cinnamon rolls, pigs in a blanket dough, croissants and biscuits. Most common brand is Pillsbury. The tubular cans that these delicious breads come in, tend to pop open at any given moment, much like a jack-in-the-box toy. It's like playing with fire once you start opening those bad boys... *Shudder*

I hate opening them. In fact, I usually make someone else do it, while I hide around the corner with my hands over my ears. And I always jump. EVERY. TIME. I know it's pathetic, but we all have our quirks.

Anyways, this recipe will require you to not only purchase surprise dough biscuits  but also open them. You've been warned. Trust me, the outcome is worth all the turmoil.

1 Tbsp salted butter
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 (16 oz) jar of your favorite Alfredo Sauce (or you can make your own)
1/4 cup milk
2 cups chopped chicken (optional)
2 cups broccoli, cut into small pieces
1/4 tsp dried basil
1 can refrigerated biscuits aka Surprise Dough Biscuits
1 Tbsp melted butter
Parmesan cheese for garnish

Preheat oven to 350F.
Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add onions and cook until tender. Stir in Alfredo sauce, milk, chicken, broccoli and basil. Cook until thoroughly heated heated and bubbly, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
Separate biscuits and cut each one in half, crosswise. Arrange around the edge of the baking dish, overlapping slightly. Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until biscuits are golden brown. Make sure they are cooked all the way through!

  1. GASP! MMMMM! This looks delightful. I love anything that has a carb thrown on top.

    On Sunday I made a sloppy joe casserole. It is super easy. It is hamburger and manwich mixed together. Throw mixture in a casserole dish. Add cheese on top. Then add the biscuits. I make it all the time. On Sunday I tried to squeeze too many biscuits on top and of course by time the tops were pass the golden brown stage, I took it out and the bottoms of the biscuits were still doughy. I promptly put them back in the oven and within 5 minutes they were black on top (I might have forgotten about them). We scrapped the tops off and I felt like an amateur schmuck. But...at least the dough was done lol.

    I will have to try this recipe. It sounds delightful! I am so glad you are updating this website again!!!!
