    American biscuits and gravy

    After months of trial and error, I have come close to the perfect biscuit. And yes, it was great.

    Looks like a gravy made from pork sausage drippings, flour and milk. Are you using Bisquick or making them from scratch?

    You yanks are gonna have to stop using the term 'gravy' with biscuits. Biscuits dip in tea, you don't drop some bloody bisto on them...



    YES.



    NO!

    You just need a bigger cup (they look nice too, perfect with a cup of Yorkshire).

    We yanks have actually invented a way to make gravy without pouring it out of a tin, a bottle, or a packet.

    Chicken fried steak, easy way to take a tough piece of meat and make it nice.

    ^ see, that's good, lovely in fact. Lovely because there are no biscuits involved; gravy with chicken, pork, beef or pie (just like the Aussies) is great.

    (I suspect it'd be nicer still if you found a way of drying it into a tin then adding hot water when you actually wanted to eat it - that's quality gravy!)

    Sounds disgusting, is the biscuit hidden by the bread roll ?

    No, that's a bread roll, surely... it's all very confusing...

    (Fondles, bloodywell beat me to it...)

    Who was that bloke that hated Subway? He used to be very confused about bread/rolls/wraps, etc. I kinda miss him.

    That is an American biscuit which is very similar to your scone. No yeast, just some baking powder salt, water and wheat I do believe.
    Our biscuit is similar to your scone. We call biscuits cookies.

    The gravy from the southern part of the US tends to be thicker as well as it is made with the addition of flour. We take the dripings and all from the roasts, but often add a roux which is simply flour fried in butter with any spices or no spices as you like. The darker the flour turns influences the color of your gravy.

    Bet I confused you more, but the intent was good.

    Now this is in jest. I dont have a clue why we eat what we eat but we like it the same as you like jam on your scones.

    This is one not a Yank one can get their head around I would guess.

    ^^^ throw a bit of shortbread on top and that'd be perfect. Yummy.

    Enjoy your fried chicken with scones and gravy, mate.

    ^ just adds a bit of crunch...

    actually I do have a clue, the pioneers coming west really only had dried foods and flour. The key was the bean as you see above. When cooked if you have a hunk of bread to sop it up with it goes a lot further. So a simple bread was made of flour, baking powder, and a little salt. Cooked in a frying pan over the fire. Now my guess one day some clever pioneer said it reminded him of a plain biscuit. And there it began. I would imagine the cooks figured out if they made it better and with a little more water it could sop up more beans.

    Thats the best I can do, and it took a beer and a trip to my balcony to come up with it.

    You'll be needing another beer to encourage the ole grey matter...

    It seems from my limited internet research that you fellas make cheeseburgers in a scone. What's all that about then???
