For the second year, General Mills Foodservice announced it is “rolling out the red carpet” for restaurants and convenience stores to showcase how biscuits play a starring role on their menus. The company is offering operators a chance to win a total of $35,000 in cash prizes.

Through March 31, The Biskies Recipe Contest will accept submissions for original recipes that use any baked or unbaked Pillsbury biscuit product and two or more additional ingredients.

The Biskies Recipe Contest calls on chefs, owners, and employees to showcase how biscuits shine on their menus by uploading a photo of their original biscuit recipe to the contest website, Facebook, or Instagram. The recipe contest will award one grand-prize winner, who will receive $20,000, and three runner-up winners (one for each category: appetizer, entrée, and dessert), with each receiving $5,000.

While the announcement specifies restaurants, the contest is open to c-stores with a foodservice program where biscuits play a starring role on the menu, a company spokesperson told NACS Daily.

“The Biskies Recipe Contest celebrates restaurants and their best biscuit creations whether they play the leading role as an entrée, are part of a supporting cast as an appetizer, or dazzle as the grand finale as a dessert,” said Chef Jessie Kordosky, a member of the Chefs of the Mills who will help to judge this year’s biscuit entries. “We can’t wait to see how restaurants showcase their creativity for biscuits that deliver a stand-out performance on their menus.”

Entries for The Biskies Recipe Contest will be reviewed by General Mills Foodservice’s team of culinary professionals, Chefs of the Mills, who will select three category finalists for each recipe category and one grand prize winner. The finalists will be featured on General Mills Foodservice’s website and social media channels in April for a public vote to determine the final grand-prize and runner-up winners. Final winners will be announced on approximately May 17, 2024.

“It’s always thrilling for us to see how our biscuit products come to life on menus,” said Kordosky. “We hope the Biskies encourage foodservice professionals to experiment with Pillsbury biscuits, which provide a low-labor way to serve great-tasting biscuits that bake up beautifully every time and serve as the foundation for a number of unique menu items.”

Kordosky added operations can take advantage of a rebate to save up to $12 per case on Pillsbury biscuits. To redeem, click here.
