I grew up in Northern California – pretty much as far from the South as you can get. I grew up cooking alongside my mom – we made lots of dishes with a Mexican flair, cookies, casseroles, pastas. But not much Southern cooking.
Somehow, though, I ended up married to a Tennessee boy. So when I was challenged to cook a Southern-inspired recipe here on Better in Bulk, I turned to him and asked what good home cooked Southern recipe HE wanted me to cook.
When he suggested biscuits and gravy, I hesitated for a few minutes. To me, biscuits and gravy are almost too iconically Southern. I wanted to be a little bit more unique. If I hadn’t already blogged about my #1 favorite Southern dish – Black Eyed Peas and Sausage – a few years ago, I would have made that (go check it out…it’s a family favorite)
I decided to go ahead and cook the biscuits and gravy for him (he asked so nicely)…and in the end, they turned out so good that I had to share them, cliche or not.
I didn’t know what I was missing.
Whether you’re a Southern at heart (or at stomach??) or a biscuits and gravy novice like me, you have got to try this recipe!
