Biscuit Mini-Batch for Toaster Oven

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 10 mins

A nice, little batch of fresh, hot, biscuits to make in the toaster oven when you just need a little something. Drop biscuits are no more trouble to make than opening a can of dough and you don't have to keep track of expiration dates. Of course you could roll them and cut them if you wanted, but I've always liked the crunchy bits you get from the texture of the drop biscuits.


  1. Pre-heat toaster oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix together flour and baking powder.
  3. Work in melted butter.
  4. Add milk and mix into a soft dough.
  5. Drop 6 biscuits onto a small baking sheet that will fit into your toaster oven.
  6. Bake 8-12 minutes or until done.
  7. Pay careful attention to the doneness because toaster ovens aren’t as reliable in their temperature control as full-size ovens.

Very quick and so easy. Made to have with leftover sausage gravy. Perfect combo. Made exactly as written except that I cooked for 2 minutes longer, and did use my toaster oven. Yea! I didn't have to heat up half the house cooking these biscuits. Thanks for posting 3KillerBs.

These were super easy and baked up great. I actually just baked them in the oven since I was already cooking something at 425. I will definitely try them out in the toaster oven. The only change I would make is adding some salt next time. Thanks for posting this!

I love, love, love how quickly I can make a small batch of biscuits (no leftovers) without heating the entire kitchen! I don't like leftovers with baking powder because they develop an odd taste (to me). This time, I used 1 Tbs canola oil and 1/3 cup milk, and added a dash of salt. I've used Bakewell Cream and King Arthur white wheat flour before, with good results. So fast, not-too-big, and adaptable! What's not to love? OK, these aren't the fluffiest highest most-Southern biscuits you can make. The taste is good, but not rapturous. But do you want the perfect biscuit, or a small batch right now, with that leftover gravy, just in time for breakfast? They're great for their niche.
