Easy Favorite Breakfast Biscuits Anyone Can Make

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

These are my Easy Favorite Breakfast Biscuits I fix all the time. They are flaky, fluffy and melt in your mouth, with a crunchy texture on the outside. I make them with real butter instead of shortening and brush the tops with butter right before baking. They taste great with butter, honey or jam. These biscuits can be made with enriched white flour of freshly ground whole wheat flour. Today I made these breakfast biscuits with freshly ground whole wheat flour.

The first time I tasted these breakfast biscuits was at my friend, Kathleen’s home. She made them the first time with white flour. The next time she brought some over to my house the biscuits were made with whole wheat flour.

I like both equally as well. I grew up on biscuits…biscuits with so many meals. This particular recipe is made with yeast, and the recipe makes enough breakfast biscuits for several meals.


This is a great recipe to learn how to make breakfast biscuits. They are easy to roll out and cut. I brushed them with some butter from the butter dish, covered and let them rise for about 30 minutes. I baked them for 12 minutes. Baked to perfection, I must say. Do you remember eating creamed tuna on breakfast biscuits growing up? I have my granddaughter here and I just asked her if she had ever eaten a biscuit… she responded, “No not homemade, just from Kentucky Fried Chicken or those that you can pop open on the counter with biscuit dough inside.”

Well, this would be a very good recipe for people to try and make. It is truly a no-fail recipe. Have you ever heard of chicken a la king? Yep, I had that over breakfast biscuits as well. What about creamed chipped beef over flaky, fluffy biscuits? If you feel like you wish you had made rolls say for Sunday dinner, this recipe is fabulous for making rolls/biscuits at the last minute. From start to finish they take about one hour. You let them rise for about 20-30 minutes. They are fabulous!

Please tell me if you grew up on biscuits….I would love to hear what you like on your biscuits….butter, honey or jam?

    Yep,I grew up on Biscuits. I learned how to make them when I was about eleven. ( God Bless our Mother). I surprised friends once when camping back in high school. I set up a stone oven in the Shawnee Forest in Southern Illinois. I used the coals from our campfire and baked biscuits . They weren’t the best but they were all eaten. That oven lasted for years. Have you made these in a dutch oven? I let you know how they come out when I make them. I spoiled my daughter with fresh biscuits and gravy for breakfast. She would call one of her friends to come over quick before they went to school. Oh! I’m easy I like honey, butter, Jam, any kind. butter and honey, butter and jam, Maple syrup and butter. peanut butter, cheese, or with nothing at all when they are still piping hot.

    My favorites were eating blackberries made in their own syrup. When times were lean Mama would make soda biscuits and heap spoonfuls on top. Another was hot biscuit with lots of Apple butter. I can almost smell that Apple butter. Now I don’t know where y’all all live but there was excitement when Daddy came home with a couple of squirrels in his sack. Mama would boil them, roll them around in flour, salt, black pepper then fry them up all brown, then Daddy would take over. He would leave all the drippings in the skillet, put in flour and got it real brown then put water in it and the gravy was on. Those were the days! By the way, I’m a Mississippi girl.

      Hi Andi, I love hearing you like sausage gravy like me! These are so easy and I like that I can pull a chunk of dough out within 5 days and make a few more! Linda
