Breakfast Biscuits with Sourdough Buttery Sourdough Biscuits are great to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

It’s time for this month’s edition of Bread Bakers and our host is Karen who blogs at Karen’s Kitchen Stories. She has asked us to bake bread with a preferment like a sourdough starter, a biga or a soaker or even a tangzhong starter (which happens to be my absolute favorite). Even with so many different options, I went back to using my sourdough starter to make these Buttery Sourdough Biscuits.Breakfast Biscuits with SourdoughI have had my sourdough starter for about 7 years now. It has gone through many good and bad cycles. I feed it regularly for a while and then totally forget about it. It has even taken the recent 500+ mile road trip from NJ to NC. I am really glad it’s still going strong and works beautifully even with all the neglect it had to endure.

So here’s my very first sourdough recipe from my new home. These buttery sourdough biscuits recipe is from King Arthur website. I make my starter with 50-50 all purpose flour and wholewheat flour, so I didn’t add any more wholewheat flour to the biscuits recipe.Breakfast Biscuits with Sourdough

These biscuits are great to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We had them for dinner with eggs and they were just amazing. I made an Indian fusion sandwich with some green chutney, provolone cheese and chopped cilantro. Both my kids loved these for dinner.

  1. I’ve never made biscuits with my sourdough starter. Definitely going to give this a try. My starter is about 3 years old and it too has had it’s ups and downs.

  2. These sound wonderful and your photos are stunning. Congrats on your new home.

    P.S. My starter has survived quite a bit of neglect at time but always comes back!

    1. Thank you Julie. My starter probably died and revived more than a few times now — so I guess it is more resilient than we think. I’m sure your starter will be just fine 🙂

  3. Congratulations Pavani on your new home and new place. The biscuits look perfect. For this recipe did you use the unfed starter or did you feed the starter? Would like to make these to go with the eggs.

    1. Thank you Mayuri. I used Unfed Sourdough starter in this recipe — don’t know how I missed that info — will update the recipe accordingly.

  4. Congratulations for your new home Pavani. Those biscuits looks perfect for a nice and tasty breakfast. I started keeping sourdough starter and totally forgot to feed it. Later I discarded it thinking it’s gone but I think I should have kept it. Will start again soon.

  5. Beautiful and puffy sourdough biscuits, these are so tempting. Must try them out with my sourdough starter, thank you for sharing this recipe.

  6. My poor sourdough start has been neglected for so long.. Not sure if it is even alive. Need to check it and will message you on how to feed it. Sourdough biscuits with fried eggs is drool worthy !
