Some Of The Different Ways We Eat “Cat Head” Biscuits:
In the South, the infamous “Cat Head” biscuit was and still is used in a
great number of ways. In fact this versatile bread can easily be eaten in
different ways with every meal. Here are just a few ways I remember eating
Aside from the usual biscuit filled with various homemade jams and
jellies, we would sometimes eat them hot from the oven, filled with a
generous amount of brown sugar and butter. The butter melts over the brown
sugar and creates a breakfast food that no store-bought brown sugar and
cinnamon toaster pastry can even touch.
Split open or torn into small pieces and smothered with one of the
delicious southern gravies such as Chocolate Gravy, Sausage Gravy, or one
of the homemade “Fruit Jams”.
Not much in the world of food is as good as a sandwich made out of a big
homemade biscuit with a large slice of a ripe, red tomato and a little
salt or with a slice of pork tenderloin or ham.
“Cat Head” biscuits make great desserts when covered with your favorite
berries, ice cream, and whipped cream. This is a very easy way to make a
wonderful strawberry shortcake.
Another way I remember eating them was to cream butter and honey or butter
and molasses together and spread over the hot biscuits.
Try some for yourself and you will find that the biscuit is one of the
most versatile and delicious foods ever to come out of your oven.
