Spotted: American biscuits (sandwiches)

Must Try

They have been wildly popular in the South of America for years and with the arrival of the 24-hour biscuit restaurant in New York City, the craze only gets more intense. These biscuit breads are so popular for a reason, because you can use them in all kinds of ways and eat them both sweet and savory. 

  • 175 grams of flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 95 grams unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 180 ml whole milk

The sandwiches

The ‘biscuits’ are a type of bread made from biscuit dough. In America, especially the southern states, they are sold by bakeries and restaurants as well as the standard supermarket.

At home you can cover them with whatever you have available: from jam to vegetables and from traditional spreads to grilled meat. Of course there are also plenty of places where you can get them filled and eat them on the spot.

In addition to being very popular invested, they are also often served au naturel  for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is nice to eat them in combination with, for example, an egg or a homemade stew.

24-hour restaurant

Biscuit lovers in New York cried a shout of happiness when they found out that Empire Biscuit had opened its doors. This restaurant, located in the East Village district, sells filled sandwiches 24 hours a day in no fewer than 24 varieties.

The menu includes vegetarian versions, one with gravy and toppings like foie gras butter and  pumpkin pie spread. Is your mouth already watering?

make it yourself

Of course you can also make your own and the recipe we used comes from Martha Stewart .

Preheat your oven to 230 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt, then mix the butter into the mixture using a fork or two knives. Make sure that the butter does not melt and you get a kind of crumbs.

Then slowly add the milk while stirring continuously and mix into a dough. Make heaps of about two tablespoons of dough and bake them for 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Let cool slightly and serve with a dish or with your favorite toppings.

Do you prefer some firmer biscuits ? Then gently knead the dough until it is a somewhat smooth mixture. Roll out on a floured work surface and cut out circles with a cookie cutter (similar to scones). Then bake them in the oven for 13-15 minutes until they turn golden brown.
