Must admit Mark that I'm also curious... on a scone it could work, but a Bourbon? Could be fatal.

UJ -

Yeah I agree. While in the US recently I was brought to a fast food version of a place selling biscuits (uk scones as Liz says) with all manners of toppings and dips. I can't remember the name of it but I have to say they were excellent.

I had to watch the wasit line but it was worth it.

Buttermilk biscuits are scone like baked bread that can be baked in a house hold over

Buttermilk cookies in the US are cookies

And Ham on a biscuit (US) is a southern american thing. In states like Virginia, North and South carolina and further south until tyou get to texas

One other meal using the biscuits is biscuits and gravy - using teh biscuit instead of mash potatoes.

And yes, PB&J go to together. Especially Welch's Grape Jelly and Jif PEanut Butter (Creamy)

And chips are fries

anddont even get me started on grits and red eye gravy

Well, like GMT/time in a previous post, I was going on the standard British biscuit and cake definitions, not those crazy trans-atlantic versions... Wink

That's just grim!

Guys,

don't knock it till you have tried it. I thought the same - but got stuck in and then went back for more.
