Homemade Freezer Biscuits

Since switching from eating already prepared food and snacks bought from the store, to cooking from scratch, we have discovered many amazing recipes. The children have also began to expect amazing home-cooked meals every time. Which is good! Right? They should crave real food and not a box of pop-tarts. But I don’t always have time to prepare a meal from scratch. Those are the times I rely on freezer cooking to save the day.

I’m not gonna lie. Sometimes there is absolutely nothing on my schedule! I am not the type of person that enjoys being bored. Not at all. So on those days I usually end up preparing a couple of meals for the freezer to spare the extra stress later.

These biscuits are my favorite freezer food.  Being Southerners we love our biscuits and gravy. Yup. Mmmmm.

Sorry.

So I love having these already prepped for busy mornings when we woke up late (so what if that’s every morning?), can’t find anything and have 20 minutes to get out of the house.

Having things prepped in the freezer allows us to still have a family breakfast. (Which is pretty stinkin’ awesome.)

These homemade freezer biscuits smell, taste, and look almost exactly like the kind you can get from the store…but better! They’re so easy to make and they’ve quickly become a staple in my house. I like to make a few batches at a time (maybe 3-4) so that I can pull out biscuits anytime I need a quick and easy side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cup milk

Instructions:

  • Mix dry ingredients together. Add in the butter and mix until crumbly. (If you have one, you can use a KitchenAid or food processor to save time and effort). Add in the milk and mix until a ball forms.
  • Roll out onto a floured surface and cut into biscuits.
  • Freeze on a cookie sheet for 1-2 hours. Then remove and place in a airtight freezer bag.
  • To cook it, pull the desired number of biscuits out and let thaw for 30 minutes to an hour (I move them to the fridge the night before). Bake at 450 degrees for 8-12 minutes.

70 Thoughts on “Homemade Freezer Biscuits

  1. Yummy and you are right Biscuits and Gravy are ‘Make you slap” your mama good. I could live on them. So I can not wait to try out this recipe as I am sure it will beat any store bought recipe.

  2. These look so delicious and Im sure they beat the heck out of those store bought ones!

  3. I clicked on a beef stew recipe post at Inspire Me Monday because I making beef stew right now in the slow cooker for dinner tonight, and I am clicking here because I made homemade biscuits for breakfast this morning. I was so glad to begin this tradition or hone this skill or whatever it may be properly called, again in my home. My grandmother made homemade biscuits probably everyday of her adult life–two or three times a day. But then the skill got lost during my mom’s generation. She tried to make biscuits so many times and they NEVER came out right, so we started to just think it was an “old time” thing that is just too difficult to continue. But I have since taken on the challenge and revived making biscuits in my home. And I am determine to start my girls out on it now at 9 and 6 so this doesn’t happen again.

    I was in the store one day to buy some frozen biscuits and had an epiphany…I have flour, baking powder, salt and milk at home right now. Why would I spend 4-5 dollars for a bag of biscuits…my grandmother would NEVER done that. So I went home and revived a down home money saver that is healthier (no preservatives) and more enjoyable.

    Great post, great recipe (mine similar), and great perspective on preparing meals.
