INGREDIENTS
BISCUITS
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon very cold milk
¼ cup very cold butter, cubed
GRAVY
1 small shallot, diced
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Turkey Breakfast Sausage Roll – Mild
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2 cups chopped fresh spinach
¼ cup white whole wheat flour
2 cups milk
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper

DIRECTIONS
1) Heat oven to 425°F. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add milk and butter, use your hands (or a pastry blender) to rub it into the flour until mixture is crumbly. Do not over mix.
2) Turn dough out onto a clean lightly floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Use a round biscuit cutter or the top of a water glass to cut out biscuits. Place the biscuits onto a lined and lightly sprayed baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.
3) Meanwhile, in large non-stick skillet, saute shallot. Remove to a small bowl; set aside. In same skillet, add sausage and cook as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F. as measured by a meat thermometer. Drain off any excess fat and add the shallot back to the pan. Sprinkle with cumin, paprika, thyme and fold in the spinach, stirring gently allowing the heat to wilt the spinach. Transfer mixture to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
4) In medium bowl, whisk flour, milk, broth, salt and pepper until smooth. Add mixture to the same pan used to cook the sausage. Cook over medium-low heat stirring continuously, 15 minutes or until mixture has thickened and flour is completely cooked off. Add the reserved turkey sausage mixture and cook until the gravy is heated through.
5) Cut the cooled biscuits in half. Spoon turkey gravy over biscuits and serve.

2) Brush sauté pan with a little oil, over medium heat, and place patties into heated pan. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side. During the last two minutes of cooking, add the cheese slices and cover the pan to melt cheese.
3) While sausage is cooking, heat remaining oil in sauté pan, over medium heat and add your eggs. Season with salt and pepper, cover, and cook until the yolk is medium, about 4 minutes. This will make for a soft, but not runny or hard yolk.

One of America’s Favorites – Biscuits

October 29, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment

Biscuits

A biscuit in the United States and parts of Canada, is a variety of small baked goods with a firm browned crust and a soft interior. They are made with baking powder or baking soda as a chemical leavening agent rather than yeast. They are similar to British scones or the bannock from the Shetland Isles.

Biscuits, soda breads, and cornbread, among others, are often referred to collectively as “quick breads”, to indicate that they do not need time to rise before baking.

Although the American English and British English use the same word to refer to two distinctly different modern foods, early hard biscuits (North American: cookies), were derived from a simple, storable version of bread. The word “biscuit” itself originates from the medieval Latin word ‘biscoctus’, meaning “twice-cooked”.

The modern Italian baked goods known as biscotti (also meaning “twice-cooked” in Italian) most closely resemble the Medieval Latin item and cooking technique.

In the Hispanic world a bizcocho refers to an array of differing baked goods depending on the country, from Spain and throughout Hispanic America. In the Philippines, a biskotso (also spelled “biscocho”), derived from a word used by the Spanish conquerors, refers to a type of garlic bread.

The definitive explanation for the differences in the usage of “biscuit” in the English speaking world is provided by Elizabeth David in English Bread and Yeast Cookery, in the chapter “Yeast Buns and Small Tea Cakes” and section “Soft Biscuits”. She writes,

It is interesting that these soft biscuits are common to Scotland and Guernsey, and that the term biscuit as applied to a soft product was retained in these places, and in America, whereas in England it has completely died out.

Early European settlers in the United States brought with them a simple, easy style of cooking, most often based on ground wheat and warmed with gravy.

Biscuits and Gravy

The biscuit emerged as a distinct food type in the early 19th century, before the American Civil War. Cooks created a cheaply produced addition for their meals that required no yeast, which was expensive and difficult to store. With no leavening agents except the bitter-tasting pearlash available, beaten biscuits were laboriously beaten and folded to incorporate air into the dough which expanded when heated in the oven causing the biscuit to rise. In eating, the advantage of the biscuit over a slice of bread was that it was harder, and hence kept its shape when wiping up gravy in the popular combination biscuits and gravy.

In 1875, Alexander P. Ashbourne patented the first biscuit cutter. It consisted of a board to roll the biscuits out on, which was hinged to a metal plate with various biscuit cutter shapes mounted to it.

Southern chefs may have had an advantage in creating biscuits. Northern American all-purpose flours, mainly grown in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, are made from the hard spring wheats that grow in the North’s cold-winter climate. Southern American bleached all-purpose flours, originally grown in the Carolinas, Georgia and Tennessee before national food distribution networks, are made from the soft winter wheat that grows in the warm southern summer. This summer growth results in wheat that has less protein, which is more suited to the creation of quick breads, as well as cookies, cakes and muffins.

Pre-shaped ready-to-bake biscuits can be purchased in supermarkets, in the form of small refrigerated cylindrical segments of dough encased in a cardboard can. These refrigerator biscuits were patented by Ballard and Ballard in 1931.

Biscuits can be prepared for baking in several ways. The dough can be rolled out flat and cut into rounds, which expand when baked into flaky-layered cylinders. If extra liquid is added, the

dough’s texture changes to resemble stiff pancake batter so that small spoonfuls can be dropped into the baking sheet to produce “drop biscuits”, which are more amorphous in texture and shape.

Large drop biscuits, because of their size and rough exterior texture, are sometimes referred to as “cat head biscuits”. A common variation on basic biscuits is “cheese biscuits”, made by adding grated Cheddar or American cheese to the basic recipe.

Home cooks may use refrigerator biscuits for a quicker alternative to rolled or drop biscuits. Refrigerator biscuits can even be cooked over a campfire on a stick.

A sweet biscuit layered or topped with fruit (typically strawberries), juice-based syrup, and cream is called shortcake. A type of biscuit called an “angel biscuit” contains yeast as well, as do those made with a sourdough starter.

While there are many different ways to prepare and top biscuits, the ingredients from recipe to recipe are generally the same. Most recipes will call for all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, either milk or buttermilk, and either butter or shortening (about half will also call for a small amount of sugar as well). The amount of each ingredient will vary for each recipe much the general concept is the same for these simple baked goods.
