EASY DROP BISCUITS

I love breakfast! It’s always my favorite meal of the day. I’m excited to share with you my recipe for easy drop biscuits that literally take just a minute or two to whip up and toss into the oven.

Here’s how my morning usually looks: I roll out of bed and wake up the kids and then head back to my room to get ready for the day. When we all head out of our rooms, my home turns into a whirlwind of water bottles, snacks, lunch prep, and finding backpacks, shoes and folders. I never have time to tend to eggs and bacon like I would like to on a busy school morning.

Instead of a bowl of cereal that I know won’t fill up my kids, we took a challenge to get a homemade meal on the table with ease. After waking up my boys for school, I whipped up a batch of biscuits and then headed back to my room to get dressed and ready while my biscuits were baking.

The biscuits finished baking in no time and after they are cooked, you can top with anything that you’d like! Sausage, eggs, butter…anything!

Loaded Breakfast Drop Biscuits

It was the perfect easy breakfast to fill our tummies and help us start our day!


How to make home made drop biscuits:

This drop biscuit recipe is so incredibly easy and takes no more than 5 minutes to prepare. Just whip together these 6 ingredients, drop them by the spoonful, and then pop them in the oven.


Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • ¾ Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Stick plus 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter (Melted) (reserve 1 tablespoon)

Begin by adding all of your dry ingredients into a sifter and then sift together to evenly distribute. If you don’t have a sifter, you can use a whisk to help get that same airy effect while mixing.

Drop Biscuits Mix

Blend your melted butter and milk into your dough with a spatula until a sticky dough is formed. Drop your dough by tablespoons onto a pre-sprayed baking sheet.

I used a non-stick baking mat so they cooked evenly. We like our biscuits BIG, so I used a #12 ice cream sized scoop for quick and easy biscuits.

You don’t need to use anything that fancy, though, the whole point is for these to be easy.

Drop Biscuits Scoop

Pop your biscuits in the oven at 375° and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

The larger your biscuits, the longer they will need to bake. We cook our large biscuits for 15 minutes.

Brush the tops of your biscuits with the reserved melted butter as soon as they come out from the oven for a softer biscuit.
