Biscuits. They’re one of the best things to come out of ovens, ever. I know everyone has a preferred version–cream, buttermilk, lard, shortening, butter, baking powder or soda, cheesy or sweet, and so forth. To me the buttermilk biscuit is the standard, made with butter and maybe lard or bacon fat: not too tall and fluffy but nicely leavened with some floury heft to withstand toppings or fillings. Okay, so this isn’t a food blog, but I had to wax for a moment about biscuits. I hope you understand.
So, what to pair with biscuits? Coffee, a natural breakfast beverage, or tea is great. But for an adult breakfast, or hell, any meal (because biscuits go whenever), I think a balanced amber ale is a good choice.
