Best Biscuit Recipe …with Gravy

I love biscuits and gravy! It’s probably my favorite breakfast–but buttermilk biscuits and gravy are pretty easy to make at home, and biscuits can be used for any meal–not just for breakfast. I’m using mushrooms for this gravy recipe, but sausage can easily be substituted if you’re in a meaty mood. A printable copy of this Buttermilk Biscuit and Mushroom Gravy recipe can be found at

Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe Ingredients:
1 tsp SALT
1 Tbsp SUGAR
1 cup BUTTER (diced, chilled)
1½ cups BUTTERMILK (chilled)
(plus buttermilk for brushing biscuit tops)

Buttermilk Biscuit Directions:
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar (optional). Mix ingredients together well. Add diced butter. For best results use chilled butter –keep the diced butter in the refrigerator until needed. Cut butter into the flour using a pastry cutter or knives. Butter should be cut into pea-sized bits, but there’s no reason to be militant about it…nice chunks of butter are nice.

Once the butter is cut into the flour, add buttermilk. Keep the buttermilk chilled until you are ready to use it–cold butter and buttermilk are best for this recipe. Pour the buttermilk into the bowl, and using a spatula (or your hand), roll the flour around the edge of the bowl until the buttermilk is absorbed and the dry flour begins sticking together. Roll until there is very little loose flour…add a drop more buttermilk if needed, but do so sparingly–you don’t want the flour to be “wet”.

On a lightly floured surface, empty the bowl and press the flour together, knead once or twice and then spread the dough out into a flat, ½ inch thickness. Do not knead or “handle” the dough too much.

Flour the edges of a biscuit cutter or drinking glass and cut out biscuits. I like my biscuits about 2″-3″ across, but make whatever size you like. Giant biscuits can be fun :^) Cut the biscuits closely and get as many out of the first press as you can. Once all of the biscuits are cut from the first press, bring the dough together again and cut out remaining biscuits–again trying to handle the dough as little as possible. Arrange the biscuits touching side by side on a lightly greased pan or on parchment paper. Lightly brush the tops of the biscuits with buttermilk or melted butter–this will help them to brown nicely. Place biscuits in the oven and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown to your liking.

  1. Ah `Scones` in the UK, we usullly have them filled with jam and/or clotted cream – I came to see what biscuits and gravy was about. I`ll give it a whirl, it may become a thing for us – Not for Mrs Djinn though, she has a very `cautious` palette(fussy).
    Thanks for the instructional

  2. Did you ever try to make those biscuits with vegan “buttermilk” (soy milk curdled with a little apple cider vinegar)? I am plant based, but even if I weren’t, that would be my only option, as they don’t sell buttermilk here in Norway…

  3. I do agree w/others on the gravy. With all that butter being used you might as well go ahead & make sausage gravy. I’m a big fan of biscuits & sausage gravy. Mmm mmm mmm! 😚

  4. For those who seem to have issues w/his clothing…who cares? I mean it’s just like he is in a pair of shorts, nothing inappropriate is showing so let the man cook! It can be miserable in a small kitchen w/so much heat from a stove/oven & in august to boot!
