Just wanted everyone out there in Farmhouse and Chickens land know that I made these Cheddar Bay biscuits for company last weekend and man oh man are they the best or what???? I contribute my biscuit making skills (since before I came to Retreat, I had ZILCH) LOL to Suzanne herself!  I’m not Ellie Mae Clampet anymore LOL  I am so impressed…and so was my company. So impressed in fact she took about 5 of them home with her!  It was a huge hit and I am so thankful to have met you wonderful people.  I cannot wait and I MEAN CANNOT WAIT until Retreat 2012~  BRING IT ON!

If this were Face Book, I'd “like” your post!

Well, I have been a good biscuit baker since I learned how at my mother's knee when I was knee high to a grasshopper, but I have never even heard of Cheddar Bay Biscuits!  I am sold already, so I guess I better head over to Farm Bell Recipes to see if I can locate the recipe!

I was just at Red Lobster the day before yesterday enjoying Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  Until I looked at them and thought….Man, Betsy was talking about making these at home.  I bet they're WAY better.  And then I thought…It's probably a good idea if I don't try my hand at it, or else I'll be eating NOTHING but these babies for the next 20 years or so!

Wearing cowboy boots does not make one an agriculturist….Having at least 3 varieties of poop on them does.

OMG!  These biscuits are like…THE BEST!!! Lynne usually brings them to work, and we scarf these down quicker than anything…when it's eating time…all you hear is the smacking of the lips and the hands fighting to grab the last biscuit out of the bowl.   :)

Suzanne:  I have no idea HOW you stay so slim, except maybe for chasing  BP around and Bad Baby LOL. 

I'm like you Heather, I cannot make these too often, because before I know it 4 of them are gone gone gone…..and my hips well, they spread spread spread…

But They are worthy to be made for guests!

 

..and then of course when company comes you HAVE to eat one as well lest they think you are trying to poison them.

I can't wait to see all of you again next year, did you see the line up that they have planned for us!

These sound yum and I have all the ingredients and want to make them tomorrow for dinner. BUT – in America, what meals do these go with? Is it simple food? Is it seafood? Roast? Beef? What with and when do you eat these yummy savoury scones (sorry! – that’s the local translation.) PS. Tomorrow night’s dinner is chicken and salad. I would usually give my crew chips (that’s homemade fried or oven baked potatoes) or grandmother bread (THANKYOU!!) or mashed potato. Where do these flavourful American biscuits come in to the dinner menu? What is the dinner that these go with? Thanks for advice. I know my kids would love them anyway.

These biscuits (which is what we Americans usually call baking powder rolls) are originally from a well known seafood restaurant.  The are served with everything which that restaurant serves, not just seafood and are very popular!  Biggest problem (asset for them?) is we go there and they are so good we load up on them and eat less of the seafood, which is good as far as they’re concerned, because the often have specials that include all you can eat.  Go figure!

I “get” that you’d call them scones!  The texture is similar, though a bit more moist, but I’ve traveled a bit and understand the whole biscuits/cookies/rolls/scones thing!!!!  Here rolls are usually yeast raised small bread products served with dinner, biscuits are usually similar but baking powder raised, our cookies (your biscuits) are sweet hand held snacks, and scones are…. scones!  Sweet or savory, but usually served as a snack or treat with coffee or tea for breakfast or a ‘break-time’ item.

Clear as mud?  I’m guessing you understand most of that from what you said but we have readers from all over!  hug  Sometimes things get confusing!

I think these would be great with almost anything but your menu for tomorrow night would be perfect with them!  I have never had leftovers when I make them!  Yes, I could double the recipe and might have ‘some’ left over, but I don’t think it would be healthy thing to do!  Good with soup, stew, any meat or seafood.  I bet you could start a new fad with them in your family or with your friends, but watch out, you won’t ever be asked to bring anything else to a picnic or dinner!

We just love Cheddar Bay Biscuits in my house.  I just made them to bring to our cottage in NH, we were opening it up and my brother and his wife were visiting from Louisiana.  They loved them too!  I was secretly hoping she would make her award winning (seriously!) chili (no beans) and thought they would go so well with it.  Unfortunately the camp was in no shape to do any cooking so we ended up going out for dinner at night but would have one of the biscuits for a late breakfast or mid-day snack.  They were a big hit!

I have made Suzanne’s Cheddar Bay buscuits, and they are fabulous, in fact, since we are having fish tonight for dinner I think I will make a batch to go with, fish isn’t my favorite food, so if we have the biscuits I can have them along with the side dishes and be perfectely happy.
