Today is Mardi Gras and the recipe I’m about to share with you is a popular staple in the southern United States… biscuits!
I am sure you have been to the famous seafood restaurant chain called Red Lobster. It was one of my favorite “chain restaurants” back in the late 80s’. As soon as you sat at your table, they would bring you a basket of warm biscuits. Oh My! I loved them! I’m not sure if my taste buds changed or the quality of the food did but I eventually stopped going there.
During the Holidays I decided to make Southern Gravy and Biscuits for breakfast. As much as it is absolutely delicious, this breakfast is quite heavy and we only have it twice a year at the most. Anyway, today is not about the gravy but the biscuits.
Although in the southern part of United States they love their biscuits and gravy, these biscuits can be served along with most any main course. They taste amazing plus they are not as heavy as most people think. They are very easy to make and if you enjoyed them at Red Lobster, you will definitely love mine. Could I have called them a copycat of theirs? I’m not sure but I know they taste pretty incredible. It’s up to you to give them a try and make your own judgment.
