Need biscuits in a hurry? Perhaps for breakfast or for a good side dish to go with your favourite soup (such as our Instant Pot Hamburger Soup or Slow Cooker Macaroni Hamburger Soup Recipe), why not whip them up in the air fryer? These air fryer canned biscuits are a snap to make for dinners or breakfast!

You can use pretty much any canned biscuits but the most popular tends to be these Pillsbury ones, which we used for this recipe. A typical container makes an easy 10 biscuits so it’s usually enough for a family without any leftovers.

To get started, open the can and separate the biscuit dough into individual pieces and place them in the air fryer basket. Make sure you separate them enough that they are getting plenty of air flow between them, otherwise they won’t cook evenly and nobody wants that to happen!

Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may not fit all 10 in at once. In our case, ours only holds about 5-6 so we do them in batches.

Cook for 325°F for about 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.

They should sound hollow when tapped, so be sure to check them before removing from the air fryer.

Crack open your freshly baked biscuits and serve with butter or jam, whichever you choose. Either way, they are quick and delicious.

  • 1 can Pillsbury canned biscuits of choice


  • If needed, preheat your air fryer to 325°F. If you are cooking Grand sized biscuits, turn the heat down to 320°F.
  • Place 4-6 biscuits in the air fryer basket, leaving room between them so that the air can circulate. This will depend on what size of biscuits you have chosen.
  • Cook for 5-6 minutes, until the outside is well browned and they sound hollow when tapped. If the biscuits are larger, cook them for longer until done.
  • Remove, and bake the remaining biscuits the same way.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    These were SUPER easy to make, tasted delicious & my daughter thought I must have spent all day making these. I am not a very good cook, so when I can make something and have my family fooled into I finally did something right, is EXACTLY what I am looking for. Keep these coming! Thanks guys!
