Grilled Garlic Butter Biscuits

These Grilled Garlic Butter Biscuits are the easiest thing, EVER. We used refrigerated biscuits and my favorite garlic bread seasoning mix to make these, and they are excellent next to almost any main dish or plate of pasta.

These biscuits are so easy they really don’t even require a recipe. It feels silly, writing this all out, but maybe you are like me and never considered biscuits as a base for your garlic bread before so I’m here to blow your mind a little at how simple and delicious these actually are.

For this recipe I picked up a can of refrigerated biscuit dough. If you have a favorite homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe you’d rather use, by all means – get your hands dirty and make biscuits while the sun shines. Same with the garlic butter mixture. If you don’t have the Johnny’s Garlic Spread Seasoning, but you do have a homemade garlic bread spread you’d rather use. Do it!

I’m not the boss of you. The basic principles still apply and the recipe should still work without a hitch.

Make some homemade Zuppa Toscana to dunk these biscuits in!

How to make Garlic Butter Biscuits on the grill

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.



Fire up your pellet grill to 350°F.



Melt the butter and mix in the garlic spread seasoning. Pour half of it into the baking dish. Place the biscuits inside (it is okay if they are touching) and brush the tops with more of the garlic butter. Reserve some garlic butter for after though!



Put the biscuits on the grill over indirect heat. If you don’t have an upper rack and if things are prone to burning on the bottom on your grill, put these on an inverted high-sided cake pan to create some more space between the fire and the bottom of the biscuits.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and fully cooked.



Brush with the rest of the garlic butter.



Serve warm with a big plate of spaghetti. Or whatever you want.

Traeger Garlic Butter Biscuits FAQ

Wait – did you just share a “recipe” for something this simple?

Yup. I did. It took me 40+ years to figure this out, so maybe some of you haven’t done this yet either. 😉

Can you prep these ahead of time?

This recipe is so easy, you don’t need to prep ahead. Also, the refrigerated dough is best baked right after it is opened.

What’s the best way to store and reheat leftovers?

I like to throw any leftover biscuits in a big freezer baggie and then reheat them in the air fryer.
