18 Southern Biscuit Recipes
We've rounded up these Southern biscuit recipes that are perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.
Prep tip: Press straight down with a biscuit cutter or glass for higher rising biscuits. If you twist the cutter, you'll seal the edges of the dough and the biscuits won't bake as tall.
- Recipe: Cornmeal-Chive Biscuits
These crumbly biscuits are moist and flavorful. Their fresh and savory flavor makes them the perfect choice to accompany any meal.
- Recipe: Herbed Biscuits
Try this Southern twist on a classic. Basil pesto gives a fresh spin on these tried-and-true flavors.
- Recipe: Biscuit BLTs
The addition of yeast will guarantee fluffy biscuits every time.
- Recipe: Angel Biscuits
Two Southern icons make the ultimate sandwich, generously topped with pickled green tomatoes and local honey.
Recipe: Fried Chicken Thighs & Biscuits
These slightly sweet and oh-so-tender biscuits pair nicely with ham, sausage, or bacon.
- Recipe: Sweet Potato Biscuits
These taste similar to the chicken from a certain closed-on-Sundays fast-food chain that folks love. The secret? Dill pickle juice! If your cutlets are thick, put between sheets of plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/2 inch thick using a rolling pin.
Recipe: Chicken Biscuit
Add your own signature spin with a few teaspoons of your favorite herb, such as thyme or rosemary.
- Recipe: Cornbread Biscuits
Yeast biscuits—also called angel or bride’s biscuits—hold together well, so they’re a good choice to serve at gatherings. The so-Southern combination of ham and biscuits is always a hit!
Cat-head biscuits are delightfully huge, crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside homemade biscuits. Their size and crunch make them ideal to serve with a thick, hearty gravy. The name comes from their colossal size, about that of a cat’s head. They bake longer and at a lower temperature than their smaller cousins.
