Favorite biscuit?

It can be store-bought or homemade. If homemade post the recipe! I had one yesterday at Popeyes and it was really freaking good!

Popeye's biscuits are wonderful. I'm not even fat.

Shirley Chorriher, a food scientist, wrote a science-based cookbook called “Cookwise” which has a terrific recipe for her “Touch of Grace” biscuits. They are feather light and the best I’ve ever had.

Best part about going to Popeye's. Use the drive-thru, get a half-dozen, skip the chicken.

by Anonymousreply 303/30/2019

Popeye's is the best fast food biscuit, followed by Hardee's and Bojangles'. For homemade biscuits, I like the simple recipe found on Martha White Flour sack, for Hot Rize biscuits.

A few years ago, a DLer posted a rave review and the recipe for Butter Swim Biscuits. They are REALLY good.

by Anonymousreply 703/30/2019

I should add that in that recipe I linked to I mentions using White Lily flour, which is a southern brand. Pilsburys or King Arthur flour is made from a different type of wheat which has more gluten. White Lily is made from lower-gluten winter red wheat and makes a more tender crumb.

Her recipe also makes a very wet dough and if you see the women at Hardee’s making their dough in tv commercials, theirs is a very soft, wet dough. The extra moisture makes them bake up puffy and light. Nothing is worse than a sense, dry biscuit.

I don’t have access to a Popeye’s. I do like the biscuits from KFC.

[quote][R7] there’s some serious food porn in that link! Have you made them?

Yes, I have. Not too often, though, because it's too easy to eat the whole batch in one day. (They're that good.) I've also tried cutting the recipe in half and baking it as a loaf. That works well, too, and limits the piggishness.

Hands down.....Popeyes. KFC a close second

I went out to breakfast a while back and ordered a biscuit with my meal. It came out all soggy and weeping grease. Turns out they had microwaved it. Sent it back. Gross, I'll have toast thanks.

Here in California Carl’s Jr. claims they make & bake their biscuits fresh every morning. They don’t really taste like it though.

Biscuithead. A small chain in Asheville NC and Greenville SC is fantastic. It honestly blew me away when I went there on a visit to Asheville.

by Anonymousreply 2203/30/2019

To be honest, I usually use bisquick and the biscuits come out delicious. The recipe provided above in this thread is for self-rising flour, which, like bisquick, already has baking powder and salt in it. Bisquick adds the shortening too, so you can either add milk or cream to make the dough. I have made biscuits from scratch, which includes using regular flour and adding baking powder, but that's a riskier proposition, since baking powder won't make the biscuits rise if it's past its expiration date. But there's a sweet potato biscuit that a friend of mine makes that is really yummy. Basically, you just add some mashed sweet potato to the flour, baking powder, shortening mixture (or use self-rising flour as above). It substitutes for some of the liquid in other recipes.

by Anonymousreply 2303/30/2019

Yes, Bisquick does make good biscuits.

I was addicted to Hardee's breakfast biscuits. I ate them every morning until the one that was in my area closed.

I agree R28 - KFC's biscuits are the best. So light and fluffy.

Anyone who eats at KFC or Popeyes is a HUUUGE red flag. Have some respect to dine out at independent or better places. Unless you live in a city with less than 50,000 people it’s a big NO.

R31 you can dine out in my asshole if you like...munch away girl, is that Independent enough for you?

No. Now make some homemade biscuits if you like em so damn much you fatty and stop buying Frozen biscuits from Popeyes. It’s literally 5 ingredients lazy.

Try Tudor's when you're in WV. Biscuitville in NC was originally the idea of the Tudor's guy.

by Anonymousreply 3403/30/2019

Came here to say that, R20. Hardee’s cinnamon raisin biscuits covered in that thick glaze. I don’t know if it should be a considered a “good” biscuit, but definitely a rare guilty pleasure. I used to eat them every Saturday morning when I was a surprisingly not fat kid. I also second Tudor’s. I live in WV and will have one on occasion. They are massive, crispy and buttery on the outside, and the fluffy center melts in your mouth. Very good with an egg and slice of bacon in between. I’m leaving this thread while I’m still skinny.

I grew up in an area that did not value a good biscuit. It wasn’t until my 20s at a truck stop in Tennessee that I actually had an amazing biscuit! Ever since then I have a softspot for them. I went to Yardbird in LA recently and their biscuits were pretty great.

I too love Popeyes biscuits!

Popeye's biscuits have a strange chemical taste. I think its the margarine.

by Anonymousreply 4003/31/2019

All those big fast food chains make their biscuits with something other than real butter. The best biscuits are made with natural butter.

You can buy the RL biscuit mix at the grocery store and it’s super eay to make. Fuckin delicious.

R41 I disagree, butter is nice as a topping, but shortening is best to make the actual dough.

You should never be allowed to touch a biscuit again r43.

But the author of that piece agrees with me that butter biscuits are a better product. She mentions shortening is cheaper and easier to work with.

That's what you use in your defense?

by Anonymousreply 4603/31/2019

She also says it is a matter of personal taste and that shortening will never give you a bad biscuit. Shortening tends to make a lighter fluffier biscuit, whereas butter based biscuits tend to be denser, because it tends to create larger gluten strands.

In the Midwest where I live, Bob Evans has the best biscuits. They make Popeye's taste like hockey pucks. The problem with all biscuits, though, is they're loaded with fat and sodium. So, I only eat them about once every 6 months.

There’s a local small chain in Houston called Kelly’s. Huge biscuits the size of a dinner plate. So good but it’s a place for really fat people. Good country cooking with an obese country clientele.

by Anonymousreply 6204/07/2019

I can't eat them anymore (wheat! carbs!), but I make a version where you melt the butter, let it get as cool as possible without reverting to solid form, and then stir the butter into ice-cold buttermilk so it forms tiny beads. Then mix with your dry ingredients. You get luscious, tender, flavorful biscuits.

That's what I aim for, a biscuit with real flavor, unlike these bland things some of you love.

I've been perfecting my biscuit recipe for a few years. Ultimately, the trick is not to overwork the dough and to keep your ingredients ice cold before mixing - even your flour!
