Biscuit Roundup.

Made-from-scratch biscuits are one of my all-time favorite things. I'll take a hot, fresh, salty biscuit any time of the day. Here’s a roundup of some of the best ways to eat a biscuit.

A few things I know to be true for a good Southern biscuit - always use White Lily flour, buttermilk and lard, over another butter or shortening ingredient. It will give you that biscuit texture, hint of tang, and smooth, authentic flavor you can't quite put your finger on.

Here’s my go-to Buttermilk Biscuit recipe if you like it plain Jane, but I have rounded up some of my favorite ways to enjoy them below if you’re looking for more ways to enjoy this Southern favorite.

1. Biscuits with Jam

Jam is one of my breakfast go-tos, and I just love slathering it on warm biscuits fresh from the oven. Jam made from peak-of-the-season fruit is a far cry from anything you can buy at the grocery store. Which is why I love making it from scratch and utilizing summer berries or figs straight from the little tree in my front yard.

2. Biscuits with Gravy

Classic white gravy is creamy and full of black pepper, making it the perfect topping for your breakfast or brunch buttermilk biscuits. My step mom is from Kentucky and she makes the absolute best white gravy around. I consider it a true hallmark of Southern comfort food, a must-try.

3. Biscuits with Butter

Like all made-from-scratch things, I love the simplicity and basic nature of making homemade butter. It tastes unbelievably fresh, and is so easy to make. Though one of the simplest combinations, bread and butter is one of the best pairings of all time. Combine homemade butter with our buttermilk biscuits, and you will be in foodie heaven. Take it a step further with a honey butter or herbed butter and you’re pretty much set for life.

4. Fried Chicken Biscuit

If there's something more Southern than a fried chicken biscuit for breakfast, I truly don't know what it is. I’ll start my morning with crispy, juicy fried chicken sandwiched between a warm, fluffy biscuit any day. And of course, Chick-Fil-A is my favorite, but on Sundays I have to make them on my own. Sometimes I will even elevate it to a lunchtime meal of choice with a smear of homemade mayo, and the addition of crunchy, vinegary pickles.
