A staple at breakfast, lunch and dinner, biscuits perform many roles, from being a center-of-the-plate showcase (biscuits & gravy) to serving as the perfect accompaniment to a hearty breakfast. Biscuits are a quintessential part of southern living and a must-have for residents and visitors alike.
NEW TWISTS ON A REGIONAL FAVORITE:
- What do you get when you cross a biscuit and a donut? A bonut of course. One inventive culinarian created the bonut as a tribute to his two favorite items. Stuffed with lemon curd and whipped mascarpone filling, the bonut is topped with berry compote making it a truly irresistible treat.
- Variety is the spice of life. Restaurants in the region have decided to stay true to the biscuit’s heritage, but accentuate its appeal by creating a variety of flavor profiles. One popular biscuit location offers 11 signature biscuits, including one that is made with bacon, guacamole, fried green tomato and a special sauce.
- Stuffed and ready to go. While biscuits are delicious on their own, a few food operators have discovered that this Southern classic takes on a whole new dimension when fried and stuffed with sweet and savory fillings.
