These Bisquick Biscuits with buttermilk are fluffy and tender. They are perfect for a breakfast of biscuits and gravy or served as a dinner side.
Biscuits are a simple basic bread choice that is easy to whip up without waiting for a yeast dough to rise like you would have to with dinner rolls.
They can be served for breakfast as a breakfast sandwich, biscuits, and gravy, or with butter and jam. On the other hand, they are perfect for dinner as well! Serve them with soup, meat, and potato meals, or with chicken strips and gravy.
How To Make Bisquick Biscuits
Put bisquick and sugar in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk.

Is there a buttermilk substitute?
I am right there with you! I rarely have buttermilk on hand. There are a couple of options. One is to store powdered buttermilk like this in your refrigerator. Simply mix it with water when you are ready to use it.
Another option is to make a buttermilk substitute. For one cup of buttermilk, mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice into 1 cup of milk. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes before using it. For this recipe, you’ll need 1 1/3 cups (1 1/4 cup for the biscuits and 1 tablespoon for brushing on top).
Stir until the dry ingredients are moistened and a rough dough forms.
Turn the dough onto a well floured surface. Sprinkle the top with flour. Gently pat into a rectangle about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick.
What kind of mat is the dough on?
Fold the rectangle over onto itself in thirds. Turn the dough and gently pat into a rectangle again.
Use a biscuit cutter to cut circles in the dough. Gently re-roll the scraps to get up to 12 biscuits.
Or as a faster option use a sharp knife to cut the dough into squares.
Place the bisquick biscuits on a parchment covered baking sheet and brush them with buttermilk.
Bake the biscuits at 425˚F for 15-20 minutes, until the tops are golden.
When the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the tops with melted butter.
Can I make bisquick biscuits in advance?
Yes, bisquick biscuits can be made in advance. It’s so nice to have biscuits on hand to use as a quick side for dinner. Here are a couple of options:
- Bake and Reheat: Fully bake the biscuits. Allow them to cool completely and then wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for several days.
- Prep and Freeze: Prepare the bisquick buttermilk biscuits up to the point of baking. Instead of placing the pan in the oven, place it in the freezer. Once the unbaked biscuits are frozen, transfer them to a freezer storage bag. Bake the frozen biscuits as directed in this recipe but add a couple of minutes of baking time.
How should leftover biscuits be stored?
Wrap any leftover bisquick biscuits tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for several days. Or store in the freezer in an airtight container or ziptop freezer bag.
How to reheat biscuits
We love having biscuits in the freezer so they are ready to go when we wan them. Warming up leftover or frozen biscuits is easy! Here are a couple of options:
- Microwave: Wrap the frozen or chilled biscuits in damp paper towels. Cook on high for 20-30 seconds. Check to see if they are warm enough. Continue microwaving them in 10 second intervals until they are warm enough. Frozen biscuits will take longer to heat.
- Oven: Place biscuits on a baking sheet and cover with foil. Bake at 350˚F for 10-15 minutes, until heated through. Check the biscuits occasionally so that they don’t overcook.
- Toaster: Cut leftover biscuits in half and toast them in the toaster.
