    So I finally tried it.

    Biscuits & Gravy.

    Still don't get it. Why do people ruin perfectly good biscuits by pouring gravy on top?

    There is a clown, I mean redneck I pass every morning. It says across the windshield of his hillbilly truck that sits about 12 feet in the air, in big letters, "I LIKE BISCUITS".

    Evidently he does by the size of him.

    Anyhow, down here in the south biscuits and gravy is a concoction of sausage gravy (the bigger the pieces the better) gobbed over biscuits. Some call it redbone. Bob Evans has it on their menu but the best you will find are at small independant hole-in-the-wall places.

    It's like adding more grease and starch to grease and starch: It must be twice as good.

    That said...I don't care for biscuits and gravy. Seems to me like something left over from dinner at ******* Barrel someone's trying to pass off as breakfast.

    You're baked biscuits are greasy?

    I think you're confused.

    No idea why it's so good to me, the gravy adds moistness to the biscuits, the sausage adds awesome flavor.

    FTW!

    Edit: Biscuits were always meant to be an accessory to other food. As the Good Book says, "Man does not live on biscuits alone."

    That said, I've had some downright lame biscuits and gravy. One place nearby has some great gravy, but the biscuits are basically hardtack, and they pour all the grease (and then some?) from the sausage in the gravy. It doesn't just clog your arteries. It clogs your intestines even. Also, most places serve bland gravy, usually some kind of whitesauce rather than a true gravy. No bueno.

    Being from the South, I can't really hate on them.
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    Anyone in the south who drives a pickup truck ten feet in the air, with "I LIKE BISCUITS" on his windshield and bulls balls dangling off the rear bumper IS a redneck. Evidently since I am in Public Relations, I can't notice these things. Who are you to say anything?

    botto! B&G is a basic staple!

    You need to get it from someone that uses cream as the gravy base though to truly get good Biscuits and Gravy. An acceptable substitute is whole milk, but not as good. Light, homemade buttermilk biscuits are also a must and top it off with a brace of 3 over easy eggs.

    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    That, and grits, I just don't get.

    So basically the southern diet is mostly food the is either ok normally or very bland, and just dump lots of fat/grease/sugar in/on it, and call it a eatin' good.

    As has been said, Southern cooking is a recipe for a heart attack. If you weren't born a Southerner, it will surely kill you. A true Southerner has evolved to be able to survive it - but they might roll down the street instead of walking though...

    Biscuits & Gravy = Art

    Don't try to explain. Don't ask. You either get it or you don't.

    And from what I understand, Duchamp was all about the grits.

    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    3/4 cup Crisco shortening <Grease

    SAUSAGE GRAVY:

    1/4 cup sausage drippings <Grease

    1/4 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

    In that case almost everything that has fat in it can be considered greasy???

    greasy - containing an unusual amount of grease or oil; "greasy hamburgers"; "oily fried potatoes"; "oleaginous seeds"

    I don't think biscuits contain an unusual amount of grease or fat.



    I like arguing random crap.

    Botto, I suspect you ate substandard gravy. Gravy making is a dying art. That said, I prefer my stepdad's biscuits with just good butter on them. The gravy tends to be a bit too rich for me. I did use some leftover Christmas goose gravy with biscuits once & it was rather good.
