Biscuit Heaven

I love biscuits and gravy, but whenever I check out restaurants I buy a replacement of sourdough toast for the biscuits. Dining establishment biscuits are pretty much consistently … well, simply not up to much.

The very first time I purchase B&G from a brand-new restaurant, I will take the biscuits. Far this screening process has yet to produce golden biscuits worthwhile of the name.

I matured eating wonderful biscuits in your home, however a lot of Americans never ever had a taste of biscuits up until 1973 when McDonald’s presented them with their breakfast menu. My better half and I make wonderful biscuits as does my earliest kid. Mine are absolutely perfect. Since they are smaller sized, my better half prefers her variation. She uses a little juice glass to eliminate her biscuits, while I such as the bigger size of a 16 oz. tumbler. Peg’s biscuits likewise do not stand as high as mine. Plus she tends to overcook her biscuits … in my opinion. Naturally, my other half disagrees with me. All these homemade biscuit distinctions are only small as compared to commercial products.

The odd thing about Biscuit, nevertheless, is the fact that three fast-food dining establishments produce great tasting biscuits. McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuits regularly serve biscuits that are not just worthy of honey, or butter and jam, but likewise gravy.

My order of choice are: Popeye, McDonald’s and KFC. Popeye’s is a recent addition to my favorite locations. I dropped in at the dining establishment on Sixth Opportunity and purchased chicken and biscuits. The chicken didn’t do anything for me, but the biscuits were oily and warm. I love the sausage biscuits at McDonald’s and the only thing wrong with KFC biscuits is the almost unsavory brown gravy, which ought to never come closer than a foot or 2 from their biscuits. At Popeye’s you can buy a side of their Cajun gravy, which goes really well with the biscuits.

I would have thought that the Popeye Biscuits were greater in fat, and they were, however only marginally. The Popeye Biscuits were substantially lower in sodium, however otherwise the three were neck and neck within many nutrition categories.

The KFC Biscuits were 220 calories, while both Popeye and McDonald’s weighed in at 240 calories. Biscuits are not diet food, however of the 3 only Popeye’s was the very best without added butter or jam. With gravy, we have a different story. Exactly what would be finest would be for me to make my own sausage and milk gravy. Even bad biscuits taste much better with excellent gravy on them. Of course, my idea of a perfect breakfast is biscuits and gravy with hashbrowns (prepared brown and crusty with onions), deep-fried eggs, sausage links and patties … and bacon. I simply can not eat that every day. It has to be a special day.

I think for next Father’s Day I will request for sides of gravy and hashbrowns from my two favorite gravy restaurants in Tacoma (Old Milwaukee on Sixth Avenue and Knapp’s in the Proctor District) and a bag of biscuits from Popeye’s … okay, do not spare the eggs and pork, either.
