National Biscuit Month invites you to bake more biscuits and eat more biscuits. September is a prime food month, which includes National Honey Month, National Breakfast Month and National Apple Month.
Biscuits are golden brown on the outside and soft white on the inside. Munching on a biscuit is like nibbling on September sunshine.
Shall we explore some fun ways to enjoy biscuits?
Sop Biscuits with Honey
Every southern gal knows honey is the best for sopping. Don’t know how to sop? Follow these easy steps and you’ll soon sop like a true southerner.
1. Slice 2 biscuits in half and slather with real butter.
2. Arrange them on a cute breakfast plate (glass plates offer eye-appeal).
3. Pour a pool of honey on your plate (Important: do not pour honey over biscuits).
4. Blot ½ biscuit in honey and swoop it from side-to-side until the biscuit soaks up the honey like a sponge.
5. Move hand-to-mouth and enjoy.
Congratulations – you’re a blue ribbon sopper.
Best Tasting Biscuit is?
I’ll go first. If you truly want to bake more biscuits and eat more biscuits, get yourself a genuine wood burning cook stove. My auntie baked five pans of homemade biscuits every morning when I was a little girl.
She tenderly patted butter she had churned the night before on them and drizzled a teaspoon of sugar over each biscuit.
So – auntie’s butter-sugar biscuits, baked in a wood cook stove, are the best biscuits I’ve tasted. Who wouldn’t want more? What is your favorite biscuit?
Biscuits and Gravy
Biscuits and gravy a total breakfast make. Among popular gravies are: sawmill gravy, meat gravy, white gravy, crème gravy and red-eye gravy. Sawmill gravy is conjured from meat grease, flour and crumbled breakfast meat. Red-eye gravy is made with ham drippings and coffee.
For your gravy breakfast, skip the butter and spread two biscuits on a dinner plate. (A larger plate allows enough room for plenty of gravy.) Pour gobs of gravy over biscuits and gobble until your tummy grumbles.
Restaurant Biscuits to Die For!
When we moved from Dallas to Nashville, my husband and I consumed baskets of biscuits at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant – until we packed on so many pounds, we concluded we were committing slow suicide.
The Cracker Barrel bakes beautiful buttermilk biscuits, served with sawmill gravy or skip the gravy and choose my favorite – Cracker Barrel apple butter.
Red Lobster’s garlic cheddar cheese biscuits will also further your mission to commit suicide by biscuit. Red Lobster’s dinner biscuits are delightful! Bet’cha you can’t eat just one…
Spiffy Stuff I put in Biscuits
Because I adore peanut butter, often I’ll spread it on my biscuit instead of butter. Grab your bib because the peanut butter will dribble down your front.
Crème cheese should be taboo on biscuits, it’s that good.
Here’s the piece de resistance created by me: pour extra-virgin olive oil over a Morning Star Veggie Sausage and bake about 25 minutes. Put the Morning Star Veggie Sausage in biscuit and sprinkle with fresh grated Parmesan. The idea is that the good-for-us innards negate the bad biscuit fats!
The Absolute Worst Biscuits on Earth
The Roach Coach services factories all over the United States. What’s inside them remains a mystery product. Don’t be surprised if you crunch on a roach.
September Food Holiday: Bake More Biscuits – Eat More Biscuits
If you prefer more substantial stuffing for your breakfast biscuit, try ham, sausage, or eggs and cheese.
Stuff a biscuit, grab an apple and you’re good-to-go, during National Biscuit Month all of September or anytime of any day or night.
