Sweet potato biscuits? Might be worth a try, though it'll be hard to top sweet potato pie.Peter
Those look delicious. Check out the menu at this local (in NC) restaurant. I went there for the first time a couple weeks ago (after years of my wife telling me I'd really like it and me demuring in favor of the local brewery/restaurant) and I'm thinking that I'll be back this week.http://www.sweetpotatoes-arestaurant.com/index.htmlwv: protabutPre-ass
The Blonde is definitely coming over if you keep cooking up all these sweet potato goodies.ironrailsironweights said...Sweet potato biscuits? Might be worth a try, though it'll be hard to top sweet potato pie.That's what The Blonde says.
I made sweet potato and bacon biscuits a few years ago for Thanksgivng. Got the recipe from the Food Network's website. They were delicious. Sweet and salty and savory. I should make them again.
There's a part of me that applauds experimentation, and there's another part of me that says, "I don't think Grandma done it that way."My west Texas Grandma made a mean biscuit, by the way.
This isn't in biscuit form, but try sweet potato burritos. The recipe calls for kidney beans, but black beans are so much better.
Is that a Wisconsin metaphor? Are you asking who among your fans has a bun in the oven? Not I!
@Lincolntf, that looks like my kinda place! In my mind I'm goin' to Winston Salem, Carolina... Can'tcha smell the Mambo ChickenCan'tcha taste the comfort food?
Biscuits are made for country ham. Other uses are interesting, but they are not the original use as intelligently designed by the food gods. Unfortunately the suckers are full of salt.
It's worth the trip, Meade.
"It's worth the trip, Meade."We're going! My favorite restaurant is already in North Carolina. We need to go to North Carolina to get something to eat.
Well, keep me posted. The Voodoo Pork is on me if you find yourself in Winston.
Tiny biscuitsWhat became of them. These are diminutive, as far as biscuits go, but larger than I originally intended. I'm still stuck on the idea of tiny biscuits a little larger than oyster crackers. Speaking of oyster crackers, I invented snail crackers. They're a pain in the butt to roll up individually.
That clinches it! Sometime in 2011. Count on it.
We will have Voodoo Pork within the year!And then on to 12 Bones.
Althouse is Notable and Quotable in the WSJ today. They spelled Ann correctly.
The best pork is east of Greensboro, specifically my employers' church BBQ, but the best country ham is from Virginia. Others have much less salt.Zephly House in Winston used to serve the only cooked cabbage that I can bear to share a room with. Deep-fried shaved red cabbage.
The potato blog isn't on your blogroll? Damn. There's some cruel neutrality for ya.
I just made cinnamon-raisin biscuits last night.
We did a biscuit inspired crust for home made pizza last weekend. Delicious.But the more important issue is what kind of sweet potatoes did you use?
Never met a sweet potato I didn't like, although I will say that the white variety has a distinctly different taste, and apparently isn't readily available. When they appear at the farmer's market, everybody wants them, and then maybe a month later, not to be seen for another year.Maybe our potato expert knows more about them? They aren't really white, just very pale in comparison to their cousins.
Marica, I prefer the orange-fleshed varieties. The redder, the better.
making the biscuits right now.
"aboslutely"That good, huh?
whoops...slip on the keyboard!! absolutely..i swear.and they were great!
I *think* the white fleshed sweet potato that Penny mentioned was the 'Nancy Hall' variety. I grew them last year and they were awesome! I do believe they're considered an heirloom-- I got my slips from a place in Tennessee. New here to commenting, but I think this is allowed. Penny, you can grow sweet potatoes in containers if you don't have space for a garden. If your climate is such that you see sweet potato vines in flower containers... you can grow the real thing. Meade-- to each his own! Far be it from me to dictate what my fellow citizens should eat!!
Marica, I completely agree - to each his own. Maybe I'll even try growing 'Nancy Hall' this year. Glad to see you as a new commenter. Welcome!
Meade & Ann-- thank you both for spelling my name correctly.
