We’re still a few days away from the official beginning of fall, but football season is already in full swing. Having graduated from Ole Miss, one of the best tailgating schools there is, I feel like I know a little about tailgating food. Granted, most of Ole Miss’ tailgating involves food served on fine linens and silver and eaten by ladies in heels and gentlemen in ties. But, the food is always a big part of things. Regardless of your game day attire, these biscuits are a must for your menu.
There are so many ways to enjoy them. Split them open, spread on a little PHILADELPHIA Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread and add some bacon for some tasty biscuit sandwiches. Spread on a bit of your favorite homemade pimento cheese. Serve alongside brisket or pulled pork. Or, if your football menu is being served at home, serve up a batch of these with chili or your favorite soup.
Along with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, I added Frank’s Hot Sauce to these biscuits for a little spicy kick. You can adjust it to your taste, but I like to add just enough to give them a hint of heat. One of the best things about these little guys is that you can easily change the spice profile to complement whatever is on your menu. I love smoked paprika, so I tend to reach for that often. But, other spices work well, too. Try garlic powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, or even your favorite spice blend.
When I bake with cream cheese, I always use PHILADELPHIA. Not only is it delicious, but it’s made with good stuff like fresh local milk and real cream. Within just six days, it goes from the farm to fridge. And, there are limited preservatives and real ingredients in their products.
The addition of cream cheese to these biscuits adds such flavor and makes for such a lovely texture. The kick from the hot sauce and spices make them a favorite with us. And, they’re so simple to make that you’ll find yourself mixing up a batch often!

Oh yum! I’ve never made biscuits with cream cheese before. Sounds heavenly!
I’ve never made biscuits by scratch but these look so good, I gotta try it! 🙂
I’ve never put cream cheese in my biscuits. This looks wonderful. Bookmarking to try soon.
Add cream cheese to everything! It can do no wrong.
The cream cheese sounds like one delicious addition! Pinning!
Oh my gosh, these sound so rich and yummy!! Football food is my favorite food group, so I am DYINGGGG to try these!
I’ve (sadly) never tailgated. But I think there is definitely still a place for these biscuits in my life! Dreaming of these paired with a warm bowl of chili. Mmm.
These will *definitely* be making an appearance at our tent in the Grove!
I haven’t ever made biscuits with cream cheese!! Makes perfect sense! Need to try these 🙂
Mmmm … I haven’t made biscuits in such a long time. This sounds like such a great recipe 🙂
How appealing and delcious these look. I need to make these! Pinned
I made these biscuits tonight to accompany a pot roast dinner, and they were perfect! I’ve made a lot of biscuits in my time, but none as flaky as these. I confess that I didn’t add the hot sauce, though. Thanks for yet another make-again recipe.
That’s so great to hear, Anne! I really love these biscuits, too.
Thank you for this recipe share.
Found this as I was looking for what to do with leftover cream cheese.
My first attempt at the biscuit failed though.
Outside looks toasted just right.
The inside is still doughy and tasted the wrong kind of salty.
Have a wonderful day.
Hi, Aileen. I would check my oven’s temperature accuracy with an oven thermometer and that the ingredients were fresh and measured accurately.
