Whether served up for breakfast or alongside a delicious main course, who doesn’t love a plump buttermilk biscuit? Whether slathered with jelly, drizzled with elderberry syrup, dripping with honey, coated with gravy, or sandwiching a piece of breakfast sausage, biscuits have been a staple in many American households for at least a century. And a faster, more delicious alternative to a conventional oven is making air fryer buttermilk biscuits.
Why Air Fry?
First of all, air frying is faster and more efficient than a conventional oven. By the time you preheat the oven to 350, you could already be enjoying a flaky, hot biscuit cooked right in your own air fryer. While the cooking instructions on the biscuits I used said to bake at 350 for 12-16 minutes, I cooked them in the air fryer at 340 for only eight minutes with no preheating. That’s at least 14 minutes saved.
Secondly, the air fryer creates the perfect texture. In my opinion, the best biscuits offer a slightly crisp top with soft, flaky layers inside. If you are like me, the air fryer will not disappoint. These biscuits came out piping hot with a lightly browned top and delicious, soft middle that made me want seconds.
Go on. Give them a try. These air fryer buttermilk biscuits will quickly become a breakfast staple in your home.
