Flying Biscuits!

Happy Monday! It’s an important day here in the states.  Not only is it the inauguration of our President, but it is also Martin Luther King Day, the federal holiday that celebrates the life and achievements of American civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. His crusade to end racial segregation for racial equality holds a special place in Atlantans hearts, as it is King’s birthplace.

As I try not to do any work, the pull to do so is heavy-duty. Indulging in a leisurely breakfast helps divert my attentions away from my work bag and computer.  And, today’s  The Secret Recipe Club reveal day recipe definitely facilitated my avoidance.

Secret Recipe Club

I was matched up with Cara, from The Boys Made Me Do It. A mom of three boys, she is consistent in posting her weekly menu plans (with commentary).   I have enjoyed perusing the plans, as they reminded me of how I have gotten out of the routine of preparing for my meals.  It’s time to jump start that habit!

As I do whenever I receive my match-up, I headed straight for Cara’s archives. I stopped short when I went back to this time last year.  Her biscuits?  Done deal.  Cara used to live here in Atlanta and she mentioned her husband job at the The Flying Biscuit before they were married. While The Biscuit became their place for brunch on Sundays, I have only been a few times.  The wait-time is out the door most weekend mornings and (if being honest) I don’t have the patience for waiting to eat. Even so, the restaurant is known for their biscuits and I wanted to see if I could bring the The Biscuit into my kitchen. 

I did!  The biscuits are pretty spot on. Next time, putting my feet up with these biscuits will have to include the restaurant’s Organic Lavender Blueberry Basil Jam

What do you make when you want to indulge in a leisurely breakfast?

A leisurely breakfast for me is a smoothie. I’m too lazy to do anything during the week except grab a granola bar.

I love how much cream they have in them, I bet that makes them quite tender!

Oh delicious! I love biscuits and jam–especially when the biscuits are homemade and fresh from the oven :)

So awesome that you made these!!

I live I guess what you would consider just outside the metro Atlanta area and have only been to The Flying Biscuit a few times, but I loved it. I’m definitely going to have to try these!

Looks like a light, fluffy, amazing biscuit! Thanks for sharing. Drooling over that lavender jam too!

Those biscuits look great! I use white lily flour for mine. I never thought of using cream. I may have to try that next time instead of regular milk. I cant wait to try these with my homemade applebutter!

Whoa, how could these fluffy wonders not be wonderful??? Full of cream and half and half must give an amazing richness! I need to make these soon :)
