simple sunday: popeyes biscuits

May 1, 2011


These are so good y’all.

Anyone who has had Popeyes biscuits knows that there is not a better biscuit on planet earth.  The Popeyes in Baker, LA is conveniently located next to Luie’s Bait & Tackle where we always made a pit stop on the way to go fishing in Norwood.  I could make a whole meal out of the biscuits covered in honey.

The first time I made this homemade version of Popeyes biscuits I was 12 years old.  Jennifer and I were staying in Carmel at Granny and Paw Paw’s and we were taking a picnic to the park.  Granny and I made these biscuits, which I swear taste exactly like the biscuits from Popeyes.  I don’t know where she got this recipe but I have had it written down on a sheet of (now crumpled, ripped and butter-stained) paper ever since.

Here are the magical ingredients:

Start by cutting the sour cream into the Bisquick until the mixture is crumbly.

Add the 7Up and mix the dough until it is sticky and well-combined.

Pour the melted butter into a pie dish and tilt it in all directions until it covers the bottom.

Pinch off pieces of the dough and shape into lemon-sized balls.  Arrange the biscuits in the dish so they are all touching.

Bake at 450 degrees F for 11-13 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.

    It doesn’t get much better than bream and biscuits! Oh, on second thought, maybe hushpuppies and bream!
