Known for her famous pop-up Sunday Supper Club, ERIKA COUNCIL’s biscuit recipe (and perhaps her graceful charm) comes by way of her grandmothers. Lately, she has been popping up at B’s Cracklin’ BBQ, mixing and folding flour, butter, shortening (or B’s famous lard) and buttermilk into layers by hand. The softest, fluffiest biscuits and her iced Cinn-rolls draw long queues and early sellouts. Council’s grace extends to her pretty blog, Southern Souffle, where she shares her recipes and stories of the South. We crown her our Biscuit Queen. www.southernsouffle.com. less...

No Southern breakfast is complete without biscuits, but the Flying Biscuit has made the biscuit — cakey, oversized and with a touch of buttermilk — the cornerstone of all its meals, even its lunch-menu items and dinner entrees. Next door to the restaurant, there's a small to-go shop that's always crowded where you can get your biscuits, sold by the dozen, to go with your morning coffee. Don't forget the apple butter — somewhere between apple jam and applesauce. P.S. the Flying Biscuit gets the other necessary breakfast elements — cheese grits, bacon and eggs — right also. less...

Mammy's Kitchen has been serving biscuits and gravy for 25 years. Nearly all the customers here are regulars, and the only available seating is at the counter facing the griddle. The menu on the wall lists breakfast — two eggs, grits, biscuits and coffee — as the foundation from which you begin, adding gravy, cheese or hotcakes as you please. You may also order biscuits a la carte, with salmon patties, country sausage patties, bacon or country ham. Mammy's biscuits are flaky and light with a touch of buttermilk. less...
