I have several homemade biscuits recipes that are so simple to make and are "melt in your mouth" delicious. These include Red Lobster biscuits, and homemade buttermilk biscuits.

Here's my homemade sweet potato biscuit recipe.

The recipe below for baking powder biscuits produces a tender, flaky biscuit. Just don't work the dough too much, or they will be tough.


You can make the biscuits twice as big as usual so you can make breakfast sandwiches. Just add scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese. You may also make them with vegetable oil and it makes them more flaky. When you use shortening or butter, it makes them more fluffy. I usually add 1/2 teaspoon more of baking powder when I am making big ones. It helps to keep them from being so heavy.

If you're new to biscuits, remember - any time you make biscuits (or scones or anything else that uses baking powder or soda to rise) you want to gently mix the dough JUST until the ingredients are all mixed -- don't overwork it or knead it. The more you handle your dough the more the gluten develops and the tougher your biscuits (or pie crust, etc.) will be.

Sausage Gravy Recipe

Red Eye Gravy 


2 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS white sugar
1/2 cup butter, cold
1-1/4 cups milk (whole milk is best)

PREHEAT the oven to 450 degrees and lightly spray a cooking sheet.

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender or a knife until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk a little at a time, barely stirring after each addition. (Frequent stirring makes these biscuits or any biscuit tough.)

Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

These are delicious warm with butter, homemade jam or honey. I created this recipe when I lived in Tennessee, and this is certainly a keeper.
