Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

These Sweet Potato Biscuits have the same flaky goodness as the traditional buttermilk biscuits but with the added flavor and texture that sweet potatoes can give to many baked goods. I began with my Flaky Buttermilk Biscuit recipe as a base and adapted it to create another version of a Southern staple. I think they’d be great with molasses, honey or cinnamon butter or even the bookends of a BLT. I don’t know about you, but a BLT sounds mighty fine to me.

With that said, for the past few weeks I’ve been trying to perfect Buttermilk Biscuits. I used a biscuit recipe from a local restaurant, Tupelo Honey, as a starting place and made adjustments over the course of a few renditions, settling on a biscuit recipe that I think would make Nannie proud.

Easy Whipped Cream Biscuit Recipe

These Whipped Cream Biscuits remind me of the ones my grandmother used to make, smaller in size to serve with Country Ham. We made tiny ham sandwiches with these biscuits, unfailingly with mustard. Never without mustard. There was nothing luckier than finding one biscuit and just enough Country Ham left to make one more teeny sandwich. It was like a prize for whoever lingered long enough at the table.

If you’re looking for a good—scratch that—a great pancake, you’re in luck. These Sweet Potato Pancakes leave those rubbery, tasteless pancakes desperate to be drowned beneath butter and syrup in the dust. This recipe produces the perfect textured pancake, dense yet somehow fluffy at the same time, full of fabulous flavor with still a bit of flavor-room left for a touch of honey or syrup, or perhaps a sprinkling of crunchy Candied Bacon? Oh yeah!

Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

Muffins can be tricky. Some people may hear the word “muffins” and think healthy cupcake, therefore most places that sell muffins cover them in chocolate, drench them with powdered sugar, fill them with cream cheese or other goodness deserving of a full-blown dessert, while others think of them as lumps of gluten, bran and mushy fruit. Which usually means one is left to choose between muffins drowning in sugar coatings, or visit the “healthy” muffin mongers who sell basically pastry rocks. Where’s the happy tasty medium?

Grilled Candied Bacon Recipe

Easy Candied Bacon Recipe

That is until a couple of weeks ago when I realized it was okay to explore the bacon and all that it embodied, especially when smothered with brown sugar and a bit of black pepper. And man, it was good. Great even. So we made it again. And then again. Thrice. Ya know, to make up for those five years, and such. So now here we are. Candied Bacon done our way. On the grill. Easy peasy. Bacon+brown sugar+black pepper+a grill (or oven). Goodness abounds, y’all. It does. In bacon form.
