Big, classic drop biscuits are a breakfast favorite at my house. This simple bread recipe will be one you’ll find yourself using over and over again. It’s adapted from the biscuit recipe I used for many years when my kids were growing up.

The ingredient list is small and you likely have all of the necessary ingredients already on hand. It takes just minutes to mix up the biscuit dough and under 15 minutes to bake the biscuits. Enjoy these buttery biscuits with beef stew, a bowl of minestrone soup or in the morning with a dab of melted butter and jelly. I’m convinced this will be your go-to biscuit recipe from now on.

    • Now that my kids are moving out and on with their lives, I don’t have a need to bake “in bulk”. Smaller portion sizes work great for us. Thanks, Amy!

  1. I totally agree – sometimes you just need a good biscuit to start your day! And I normally end up making way to many so this recipe is perfect! Pinned and yummed! And trying ASAP friend 🙂

    • Thanks, Chrysta! Now that my kids are growing up and going away to college, I don’t need to make big batches of foods we enjoy. It’s nice to be able to prepare smaller portions.

  2. This recipe is awesome. I’ve been making biscuits for a long time and always end up with too much dough. This is perfect for two portions and it tastes great. I didn’t even have milk and had to use water, but it still tastes fantastic. Don’t know why I’ve never thought to add that bit of sugar… It makes such a difference. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Awesome Recipe it worked wonderfully I actually added cheese to mines but it’s definitely a great idea for one person or if you like shearin for two. Thanks again for the tips!

  4. I halved this recipe (but not the sugar) and made one good size biscuit. I sprinkled it with sugar and used it for a single strawberry shortcake. Thanks!

  5. Hi, I am so glad that I found this site cooking for one. This morning I wanted a biscuit but, did not want to make a whole batch, this recipe was quick, easy and delicious.Thanks

    • I’m so happy you found us too! Thanks so much for letting me know that you enjoyed the biscuit recipe. Hope you find many more recipes that you love. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Planning to make these biscuits tonight to go with a pot of beef stew. Since I am just cooking for myself after 45 years of cooking for my husband and children, it’s nice to have recipes that are “downsized” so I don’t have a lot of waste. Hoping these turn out good, and thank you for the recipe!
