Mashed Potato Biscuits are so easy to make and a wonderful way to use any leftover mashed potatoes. We love these delicious biscuits with butter and honey. These are a great way to start the day and keep well in an airtight container and reheat well too.

Mashed Potato Biscuits Simple Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour

Baking Powder

Baking Soda



Mashed Potatoes




This recipe uses just basic ingredients and is one of our favorites, especially after any holiday gathering! We always make a lot of mashed potatoes and if we have any leftover, these are on our breakfast menu the next day! You can easily cut this recipe in half if you wanted too.

You can use this Buttermilk Substitute if you don’t have buttermilk on hand.

“I came across this recipe yesterday. I was having Sheherds Pie for dinner so I saved a cup of mashed potatoes. Made these this morning as written except slathered some melted butter on after removing from oven. They are excellent…love them!” – Phyllis

“Made these yesterday – wow!!!! My mashed spuds were made with sour cream and used White Lily flour, wish I could buy that flour here!!!! The biscuits were so tender and delicious, even today when cold!!!! This is definitely a keeper recipe!!!!!” – Janet
