  • If you are a fan of whole pecans, you can also use those instead of coarsely chopping them.
  • Switch up and use walnuts instead.
  • You can also use canned biscuits but not the jumbo kind unless you are using a jumbo muffin tin, they will puff up too much in the pan and the ratio of bread to sauce will be off.
  • Only let cool in pan for 1-2 minutes otherwise they will be harder to get out.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled for a 12 count muffin tin.
