20+ Mouthwatering Biscuit Recipes
No matter what time of day, a buttery, flakey biscuit simply can't be beat. Whether you're craving something savory (like these Parmesan-Herb Angel Biscuits) or something on the sweeter side (we're looking at you, Copycat Bo-Berry Biscuits), we've got the biscuit recipes for you.
Fluffy Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
Fluffy Buttermilk Drop Biscuits Recipe
When the warm butter meets the cold buttermilk, it will begin to form clumps—little droplets of fat throughout the liquid—a sign of success. The pockets ensure even distribution of fat throughout the batter, creating a lighter biscuit with less butter.
Two key techniques make these whole-grain biscuits light and fluffy: smashing the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers, and folding the dough to create layers.
Copycat Bo-Berry Biscuits
Copycat Bo-Berry Biscuits Recipe
Enjoy the Bojangles favorite whenever the craving strikes with our easy-to-follow copycat Bo-Berry Biscuit recipe.

Creole Mayonnaise, Chive-Radish Compound Butter, Spicy Orange-Peach Butter, and Pecan Cheese Spread are our newest spreadable recipes that you’ll love for these biscuits, but whether jelly, jam, mayo, or mustard, you can’t go wrong topping this timeless biscuit recipe.

Strawberry Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe
Many months ago, New Orleans chef Kelly Fields stopped by Extra Crispy and made the best biscuits and gravy in the world. Other than their fluffiness, their main strength was that they were massive. There wasn't a ruler in the kitchen, but they must've been like five inches tall.

What could be better than macaroni and cheese combined with a buttermilk biscuit? Add some bacon and you’ll never look back.
Sheet Pan Ricotta-Chive Biscuits with Baked Eggs
Sheet Pan Ricotta-Chive Biscuits with Baked Eggs Recipe
Our sheet pan take on “egg-in-a-hole” is such a perfect play for a fun, and totally photogenic, weekend brunch. A slab of rich, tender, and herbaceous biscuit cradles just-right, over-easy eggs (you’ll have set whites and delightfully runny yolks after 7 minutes of baking), drizzled with hot sauce and a sprinkling of fresh parsley. The best part? While your giant egg-filled biscuit slab lends itself to being served savory, the (normal-sized) biscuits you cut out to create holes for the eggs can be served up with sweet accouterments, like jam and honey butter, in order to achieve the ultimate sweet and savory breakfast balance. Of course, you can also just slice and serve the egg-filled biscuit portion with a side of bacon and fresh fruit, then pop your individual biscuits in a plastic zip-top bag and freeze for your emergency biscuit stash. Also, topping this entire situation with sausage gravy is not a bad idea either.
The addition of heavy cream will guarantee moist biscuits every time. Brush warm biscuits with melted salted butter, and serve with Basil-Honey Butter
Whole-Grain Spelt and Cornmeal Biscuits
Whole-Grain Spelt and Cornmeal Biscuits Recipe
Gently pat the dough flat instead of rolling with a rolling pin. Patting preserves all the pockets of fat needed for flaky biscuits, whereas rolling pancakes them into small, dense pucks. Cut the biscuits into squares to avoid any leftover scraps. Spelt flour adds a deep nutty flavor, but you can use white whole-wheat flour if you can't find spelt.
Potato-Sour Cream Biscuits
Potato-Sour Cream Biscuits Recipe
These savory treats are delicious alongside roast beef, chicken, or ham. They are great for sandwiches, too.

Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich with Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Recipe
These simple breakfast sandwiches are made for weekend crowds. The eggs are baked on a sheet pan so you can cut them into little squares and tuck them into biscuits along with your favorite toppings. If you have leftover cooked eggs, they can be refrigerated up to 1 day. Reheat them in the oven (not in the microwave) at 325°F for 5 minutes to keep them from drying out.
Pumpkin-Buttermilk Biscuits with Crispy Ham and Honey Butter
Pumpkin-Buttermilk Biscuits with Crispy Ham and Honey Butter Recipe
Pumpkin gives these light and flaky biscuits a pretty orange hue and an earthy flavor that pairs well with honey butter and salty country ham. Be sure to use pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling, which is sweetened and spiced.
