How to Reheat Frozen Biscuits: 4 Ways

This article explains how to reheat biscuits so that they taste like freshly baked biscuits. Incorrectly heating frozen biscuits causes the biscuits to become dry and lose their original flavor. Frozen or leftover biscuits don’t have to end up in the trash.

Reheating Frozen Biscuits: Oven, Microwave, and Toaster Oven

Reheating frozen biscuits is easy as long as you use one of the methods on this list. The best way to reheat frozen or leftover biscuits is to bake them in the oven.

Oven

Preparation and cooking time: 10 minutes

Oven cooking is the best way to reheat frozen biscuits because the even heat distribution warms the biscuits thoroughly. This method is also best for reheating big batches of biscuits at once.

You will need:

  • An oven
  • Parchment paper
  • A large baking tray or baking sheet
  • Aluminum foil

Here’s what to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Place a layer of parchment paper on the baking tray
  3. Spread the biscuits on the paper 1-inch apart
  4. Cover the biscuits with aluminum foil
  5. Place the tray in the oven and wait 5–7 minutes for the biscuits to reheat
  6. Remove the tray and serve the biscuits as you prefer

Toaster Oven

Preparation and cooking time: 10 minutes

A toaster oven is the next best alternative to a traditional oven for reheating frozen biscuits. Toaster ovens give frozen or leftover biscuits a freshly-baked taste and are ideal for reheating small batches of biscuits.

You will need:

  • A toaster oven
  • Parchment paper
  • A toaster oven tray
  • Butter (optional)

Follow these instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Line the toaster oven tray with parchment paper
  3. Place the biscuits on the paper 1-inch apart
  4. Brush the biscuits with butter to keep them moist (optional)
  5. Bake the biscuits in the toaster oven for 6–8 minutes until they’re thoroughly reheated
  6. Remove the tray and serve the biscuits while they’re hot

Microwave

Preparation and cooking time: 3 minutes

Microwaving frozen biscuits is the quickest way to reheat them. To ensure the biscuits retain their moisture and flavor, wrap them in a damp paper towel.

You will need:

  • Microwave
  • Damp paper towels (enough to wrap each biscuit individually)
  • Microwave-safe plate or container

Here’s what to do:

  1. Set the microwave to a medium heat setting
  2. Wrap each biscuit in a damp paper towel
  3. Place the wrapped biscuits on a microwave-safe plate or in a container
  4. Place the plate or container inside the microwave and heat for 45 seconds
  5. Remove the biscuits and check that they’re warm enough. If parts of the biscuits are still cold to touch, heat them for another 15 seconds
  6. Continue to microwave the biscuits in 15-second increments until they’re warm enough, then serve

Stove

Preparation and cooking time: 3 minutes

Reheating frozen biscuits on the stove is just as quick as using a microwave, but takes some extra care. This method works well because it doesn’t alter the texture of the biscuits during reheating.

You will need:

  • A stovetop
  • Aluminum foil
  • Butter or olive oil
  • A medium or large pan

Follow these steps:

  1. (Optional) Brush the biscuits with butter or olive oil to give them flavor
  2. Wrap the biscuits individually in aluminum foil
  3. Preheat the pan to a medium heat
  4. Place the wrapped biscuits in the hot pan, reduce the heat to low, and cover with a lid
  5. Remove the lid and flip the biscuits every 30 seconds to evenly cook them, then return the lid
  6. Cook the biscuits for up to 3 minutes, then remove and carefully unwrap a biscuit to test it
  7. If the biscuit is warm enough to your taste, remove the rest of the reheated biscuits and switch off the heat
  8. Serve the biscuits alone or with your preferred toppings

Reheating Leftover Biscuits

Frozen Biscuits

The most common leftover biscuits are homemade, KFC, Red Lobster, Odom’s Tennessee Pride, Cheddar Bay, Popeye’s, and Pillsbury biscuits. The easiest way to reheat leftover biscuits is by microwaving them.

Preparation and cooking time: 3 minutes

You will need:

  • Microwave
  • Damp paper towels
  • Microwave-safe plate or container

Follow these instructions:

  1. Set the microwave to a medium heat setting
  2. Wrap the leftover biscuits in damp paper towels
  3. Place the wrapped biscuits on a microwave-safe plate or in a container
  4. Place the plate or container inside the microwave for 30 seconds
  5. Check the temperature of the biscuits and microwave them for another 10 seconds if they’re not warm enough

Some tips for reheating biscuits are:

Storing Biscuits

To properly store leftover biscuits, wait until they’ve completely cooled, then wrap them in cling film or aluminum foil and place them in an airtight container. Store the container in a cool, dark cupboard or in the fridge. Biscuits with ingredients like cheese or cream cheese should always be stored in a refrigerator.

Leftover biscuits can also be frozen — wrap them in aluminum foil and freeze them in separate Ziploc bags. Leftover biscuits stored in a refrigerator or pantry last for one week. Frozen biscuits maintain their quality for two to three months.
