Making biscuits usually only takes about 20 minutes, but sometimes there are mornings when 20 minutes just isn’t happening. At least that’s the case at my house from time to time. That’s when these simple make ahead biscuits are a life- and time-saver! Learn how to freeze biscuits for a simple morning! 🙂

I know I’ll turn to them continually in the next few weeks as Sam starts back to school. I am trying as best I can to get myself in gear!

Since he’s in high school, I’m trying not to be as much of a hover-er as I’m sure I’ve been the last nine years he’s been in school. It’s not easy, believe me. But, one thing that I couldn’t skimp on was making sure that we had the freezer stocked with his favorites for breakfast. If Sam had his way, he’d have pancakes, waffles, or biscuits every single morning. So, I decided to do just that in preparation!

I started with these biscuits.

If you have a rainy day, I urge you to bake up a few batches of these to put away for busy mornings. You can use my three ingredient buttermilk biscuit recipe or even my two ingredient cream biscuit recipe. Either one of these work incredibly well and are always loved!

Now, once you have baked them, I recommend allowing them to cool completely.

Then, add in any special additions you’d like to your biscuits to make those mornings go even more quickly. Love sausage biscuits?

Cook a batch while your biscuits are cooking and then make your sausage biscuits to freeze and enjoy later. Cheese biscuits your favorite? Then make those as well!

The possibilities are just endless, but I always like to leave some plain for serving with jam or jelly, too!

Now that you have your biscuits all prepared, wrap them in freezer paper and store in a sealable freezer bag. Label the bag to make sure everyone knows what kind of biscuits are included and add a date so you remember when you made them.

Here’s the printable for these Make Ahead Biscuits. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

  1. This is a great idea, and it’s something I do to make mornings less hectic. Of course, we tend to make a lot of breakfast burritos. I had to laugh when I read this. I have an old microwave. It’s only 500 watts. Our rule for heating something up is to heat on 50% defrost for the cooking time, then rotate the item and cook it for the cooking time under the cooking mode. I wonder what it would be like to have a modern microwave….I just can’t bring myself to replace something that still works and looks good.

  2. 5 stars
    I appreciate this as I do not like the taste of the canned biscuits. I make burritos, quesadillas and now homemade biscuits. I am not a cheerful early riser so my son and friend can grab and go and I know not hungry.

  3. 5 stars
    My boy is going to love this and my girls too! This will be great for school days. I also think it’s yummy for my daughter, the nurse, who works nights. She likes breakfast foods before going to the hospital and I am usually cooking dinner when she leaves the house.Quick question. If I want to make a large quantity of biscuits do I double the recipe? Or are biscuits best one batch at a time?

    1. Hey Shannon!
      Yes, you can double the batch for the biscuits without any problems. I hope your sweet family enjoys them! They are a life-saver around here! 🙂 We’re going to miss seeing y’all this year. Come visit! xo

  4. This is an ex excellent way to prepare your breakfast food, like biscuits. Freezing them makes it easier when you are in a hurry!

  5. Very good idea for the working Mom/dad/grandparent also. Question-Is it possible to freeze, longer, without baking off the biscuit first? I have no children at home any longer, though do have grandchildren from time to time to get to school or pick up from school, and baking them first for me I do not think I would eat quickly. Any thoughts?

    1. Hi Wanday,
      Yes, you can absolutely freeze the unbaked biscuits and they’ll keep longer in the freezer. To do that, just make the biscuits up until the point of baking them. Place them on a rimmed baking sheet in the freezer until they are frozen, about 15 – 20 minutes. Then remove them from the freezer and place into a sealable freezer bag. When you need to bake, just remove from the bag and place on a pan and into the preheated oven. You’ll need to add a few more minutes to the baking time. I hope you love them! xo

  6. My favorite kitchen tool is a really good sharp knife that I can use to cut even the most difficult cuts of meat, really hard potatoes or apples, or even a nice slice of cake. I could really use a nice set of knives.

  7. I am excited about your post on biscuits. My Mom, also from Ga, was the world’s best biscuit maker. However, when She taught me it was a little of this and a little of that. You now have given me the measurements. Thank you. I was just thinking of her yesterday and thinking she is cooking biscuits for Jesus. We are expecting a crowd soon and I needed a quick breakfast before golf. This will be perfect. PS, of course White Lily!
    Thank you,
    Milah

  8. Have you ever tried to reheat those biscuits by stovetop? I think isn’t bad idea if you follow that way! To make your biscuits have salty and meaty flavor, you should try to reheat them by using stovetop with bacon grease.

  9. Hi Robyn!
    This recipe brings back fond memories for a beloved Aunt of mine! Ga Girl here! My question is. In your insruction’s you say to let Rise and Cook.. How long do you let them Rise? Thanks for the help!! Renata

  10. DARN GOOD. I cut the shortening into the flour (that I made using a/p flour/baking powder/baking soda/salt) in a food processor (because I haven’t seen my pastry blender for years!!) THEN dumped that mess into a bowl and added the buttermilk that I made from whole milk and vinegar. For giggles I even cut the recipe in half. Bravo!! p.s. ironically i’ve been baking cakes from scratch since I was ten but was always shy about trying my hand at biscuits. p.p.s. Maybe next time I will use apple cider vinegar and add a handful of sharp cheddar cheese.

    1. You can freeze the biscuits after you have cut them out and before baking. Prepare biscuits as directed in instructions except for baking. Once you have biscuits cut and on baking sheet, wrap tightly to make freezer safe and place in the freezer for up to two months. When ready to bake, preheat oven as directed in recipe, place sheet pan directly from the freezer to the oven and bake a few additional minutes over the standard baking time. Or you can flash freeze the biscuits, remove from the pan, and store them in a freezer safe container. You can remove as many as you want and bake.
