How to Reheat Biscuits for Perfect Results 

Absolutely delicious; southern-style biscuits are one of my families favorite sides! They tend to go with so many dishes, not just traditional fried chicken or gravy. We have found new ways to enjoy them, so we always seem to make extra. Getting those soft flaky biscuits reheated properly isn’t hard, and I’ll give you 3 of my best ways to reheat biscuits below!

Before we get to the reheating, storage is important too. Especially if you are planning on keeping your biscuits for a long time after baking.

Best Ways to Store Biscuits to Keep Them Fresh

Enjoying leftover biscuits, just like any foods require proper storage to start. Know the best ways to keep them ready to enjoy at a later date. I’ll quickly go over a few storage tips below!

Store in the Pantry

  • Best to use for short-term storage of up to a few days
  • Place your biscuits into an air-tight container or into a ziplock bag
  • Store in a cool and dry spot in your cupboard or pantry
  • Break up into multiple containers if you plan to eat them periodically. The more often you open the container, the quicker they will loose their freshness.

Store in the Refrigerator

  • Our favorite method and best used for storage of your biscuits up to about a week.
  • Place your biscuits into an air-tight container or ziplock bag with a sheet of paper towel. The paper towel will absorb any extra moisture!
  • Avoid leaving the container or bag open as your biscuits will quickly loose freshness.

Store in the Freezer

  • This is the best method when storing for long-term.
  • Biscuits will stay perfectly good in a freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Its best to wrap each individual biscuit in plastic wrap or wax paper as they will be very crumbly and prone to breaking once frozen.
  • I recommend storing in a container rather than loose or in a bag to avoid breaking them.

Each of these methods I’ve used, and I’ll put them in order of favorite to least favorite. Each way gives you pretty good results, some just quicker or better than others. Try it out, find your fav!

If you’re reheating frozen biscuits, please allow enough time for them to thaw at room temperature first before reheating. This is the best way. If you don’t have enough time, 1 minute each side on medium power in the microwave will quick thaw them.

how to reheat biscuits in the oven

This is my go-to method when we reheat biscuits. Its typically half a dozen or so at a time, so doing it in the oven makes sense. If you are only heating up a couple at a time, maybe the microwave method or stovetop is a better idea.

  1. Let biscuits stand at room temperature.
  2. Pre heat the oven to 325F.
  3. Brush a light amount of olive oil or butter onto both sides of biscuits.
  4. Place the biscuits on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  5. Heat biscuits for 2 minutes each side. Be sure not to over bake them!
  6. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Stovetop Reheating Instructions

Prep Time: 2 minCook Time: 3 minClean Time: 1 min

The stovetop method is the best way if you only want to warm up a couple biscuits. It doesn’t sacrifice quality and you’ll still get that delicious crisp flaky texture.

  1. Heat skillet or fry pan over medium heat.
  2. Brush a light amount of olive oil or butter onto both sides of biscuits.
  3. Fry the biscuits for about 30 seconds each side. Biscuits from the fridge will take longer, continue until desired temperature.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and serve immediately.

Microwave Reheating Instructions

The microwave method is super easy. Let’s face it. Its probably the most used way to reheat most things. You do sacrifice quality a bit, you wont get the best texture. Sometimes this doesn’t matter and you want your biscuits as quick as possible with almost no prep or clean up.

  1. Place the biscuits onto microwave safe dish.
  2. Fill a coffee cup with 1/2 cup water and place it with the biscuits in the microwave.
  3. Heat on medium heat for 1 minute. Check for desired temperature.
  4. Heat for additional 30 seconds until desired temperature.
  5. Serve immediately.

I hope this helped out and you get to enjoy leftover biscuits just as they were served fresh from the oven.
