Step by Step Instructions
Frozen biscuits in the air fryer are as easy as frozen food gets! You just pop them in, set your timer, and bam! deliciousness!
Spray your air fryer tray or basket with non-stick spray before placing frozen biscuits in the air fryer.
Air Fry the Biscuits
Pre-heat air fryer to 350 degrees F. Place biscuits in one layer in the air fryer, space out 1 inch, do not overfill the tray.
Cook for 6 minutes, flip biscuits and cook for 5-6 more minutes until the biscuits are golden brown.
Pull biscuits out and let sit for 2 minutes before serving.
- This recipe is based on frozen biscuits.
- Biscuits can be thawed and then cooked at a slightly higher temp for less time. We didn’t find any benefit in this or change in flavor and prefer to cook them frozen.
- For best results, don’t forget to flip your biscuits halfway through for even cooking.
- Biscuits will need some air between them, so be sure not to overcrowd your fryer. Cook in batches if necessary.
- You can use parchment paper rather than non-stick spray. Be sure to cook enough biscuits to weigh down the parchment paper so it doesn’t blow up into the fan and light on fire.
Biscuits are best served with country white gravy, your favorite fruit preserves, or a smear of butter. Country white gravy is easy to make and really levels up the meal. Fruit preserves or jam are great if you just want a biscuit as a snack, and butter is perfect if you are using the biscuits as a side to compliment a larger breakfast.
Biscuits tend to be good for up to 3 days. You can either store them in an airtight or sealed container, or you can freeze them and reheat them at a later time. Although I would recommend you only cook what you plan to eat rather than freezing the cooked biscuits. Primarily because they are already so easy to cook in your air fryer.
