“Welcome to Foodie Fridays! Delight your senses with our Easy Buttermilk Bacon Biscuits, accompanied by the bold kick of Harissa Butter. This flavorful combination promises a culinary journey that transforms your Friday breakfast into a gourmet experience.”
Mr. B and I have different approaches when it comes to eating.
In fact, it’s one of the few things in our marriage where we simply agree to disagree. Mr. B is of the “sectional eater” kind; he gives each vegetable or potato or meat serving individual attention and eats them in a particular order.
Now, yours truly is of the mix-everything-together-corn-in-my-mashed-potatoes variety. Seriously, is there anything better than grilled corn, mashed potatoes, and gravy mixed together? Instead of yogurt shops, they should have mashed potato shops where you can mix in 100 + flavors! #itcouldhappen
Even though Mr. B won’t be mixing his corn and mashed potatoes anytime soon, I do believe I can get him to mix different cultural foods together. When I think of a buttermilk biscuit my mind instantly heads straight to the South. I don’t know how they do it south of the Mason Dixon line, but they sure know their biscuits. My favorite being buttermilk. So light, fluffy, and buttery, it’s the perfect vehicle to load on your favorite ingredients.
Which is why harissa butter is the perfect side kick to the biscuit. Harissa is a Northern African spiced chili sauce made up a mixture of peppers such as red roasted and Serrano peppers. In Northern Africa they put harissa on everything! So naturally why not mix it with a little butter and put it on a biscuit!
Let me tell you friends, if there were a 12 step program to getting sectional eaters to mix up their foods, this would be step #1. Okay, probably number two because the first step is admitting you have a problem. But nonetheless, these buttermilk biscuits with harissa butter are fool-proof way to get them to mix it up.
Now, about those mashed potato shops…..
