Portland was coated in ten inches of snow on Wednesday, which is a number of snow for a metropolis full of people that don’t know find out how to drive in snow. This implies I’ll be staying dwelling till it melts, and taking part in a enjoyable sport of Chopped with my pantry and chest freezer. I hope to unearth many treasures. Seeing as I’ve already discovered a field of Crimson Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit combine, I’d say I’m off to a reasonably good begin.
Should you’re not acquainted with this specific combine, I’m glad to inform you it’s fairly good, and near the biscuits you get on the mid-range seafood chain. (Although I’ve not been to a Crimson Lobster in a very long time, the field combine biscuits style just about precisely how I bear in mind them tasting within the restaurant.)
One of many good issues about making issues at house is which you can mess around with the format. I didn’t really feel like portioning the dough into biscuits so as an alternative, I scraped all of it right into a loaf pan, then baked as regular, including about 10 minutes to the bake time.
It turned out fantastically, if you happen to contemplate an enormous, sliceable biscuit to be a factor of magnificence. (And I do.) Being a biscuit, it didn’t rise as a lot as a loaf of yeasted bread, however you can at all times double the recipe (and double the prepare dinner time) to make a taller sliceable biscuit, however I discover the slim slices to be fairly charming.

As soon as sliced, you possibly can lay down just a few items and slide a fried egg on prime, or fry the slices in butter for additional crispiness (after which slide a fried egg on prime). You may additionally lay down a skinny slice of chilly cream cheese, just a few slices of ham, or anything you suppose can be good on a tacky, buttery biscuit plank. Should you get tired of the flavour, you possibly can at all times change out the cheddar for a special cheese. I made mine with Jarlsberg (as a result of I’m snowed out and in of cheddar), and it was pleasantly candy and nutty, however I can’t wait to attempt it with aged gouda, or Dubliner.
