    Ahhh, Abomination! Buy a Southern Cook Book pronto! Odd to read this cuz I was thinking of whippin up some biscuits and gravy this morn. I like drop biscuits in a cast iron fry pan in the oven. Piss on rollin them out and doing all that cuttin. Some red eye gravy with sausage, couple eggs over med. and I’m a happy man. Course a side a grits is required too.

    I make a mean sausage gravy and would be happy to share the recipe with our friend down under. Unfortunately, Wilson Farms Meat Company of Catlett, Va. is set to close next month, so getting top flight sausage is going to become a problem real soon for me.

    • brighteyes says:

      Wilson’s is closing! Now that is a sacrilege.

        Holy Moly! Passed by there on the way home tonight. Had no idea they were closing. Some of the locals here use Fauquiers Finest for processing, they do a good job.

    Sausage gravy is good, but bacon gravy and biscuits is outstanding….

    That’s all right, mate. You should have seen my attempt at Bangers and Mash. It was not a pretty sight.

  8. Sanders says:

    Oh well, there’s always Vegemite.

    Biscuits and gravy was the bestest, most awesomist UGRE there ever was. Pure bliss.

    Off note: The resident midget which some how ran on sugar and never lost his six pack, hoarded all the pudding mixes that came with it. -.- Mutant.

    Leave it to the queen’s english to misconscrew a cookie for a biscuit. In the USA, biscuit is almost universally understood to mean baking powder, flour and water combined to make a bread like edible baked in an oven.

    I do note that the venerable Merriam Webster actually has TWO, countem’ TWO definitions for biscuit, one for the USA and one for British, to wit:

    Definition of biscuit

    1a US : a small quick bread made from dough that has been rolled out and cut or dropped from a spoon While both types of biscuit use the same handful of ingredients and are quick to prepare, drop biscuits don’t rely on any of the finicky steps rolled biscuits require to get them just right.— Sandra Wu

    b British : cookie The children were divided into groups of five seated round a table and each one was given a chocolate biscuit.— H. Colin Davis

    Note that the b. definition specifies it (the def.) as British, thus not country specific as in the a. def. How Webster made that classification is beyond me.

    Webster defines cookie as – 1 : a small flat or slightly raised cake (there are two other definitions listed, neither of which have anything to do with an edible)

    Then the world wonders why the British Parliament can’t figure out that it’s not in Britain’s best interest to be subject to EU laws and regulations when its language conflates a cookie with a biscuit.

    So So SO glad we kicked them to the curb all those years ago.

    Brits and Aussies, murdering the english language one word at a time.

      “In the USA, biscuit is almost universally understood to mean baking powder, flour and water combined to make a bread like edible baked in an oven.”
      Not in my house. Self-rising flour, 1/4 cup of milk & 1/4 cup of lard (or bacon grease) per cup of flour. Easiest thing in the world.

      • brighteyes says:

        That’s it cept I prefer buttermilk. Piss on baking powder. I drop em from a spoon inta a iron pan and in the oven about 20 min. or til brown. Make the prettiest lil ol biscuit ya ever seed. If ya aint got buttermilk throw a splash a white vinegar in whole milk and it’s a fair substitute. But next time get the buttermilk.

    • Bacon says:

      That’s hilarious Nemo!

    • rocketride says:

      Actually that reference to ‘British’ means that it is specifically British English, as opposed to US, Australian, South African, Scottish, etc. English.

    From Oz, making inbreeds classy the world over.

    For any US ladies visiting Oz, expect to be very popular if you decide to root for a particular team

  13. Judy says:

    Um, no, that is not our breakfast dish biscuits-n-gravy. When one is going from one dialect of English to another you should really consult a lexicon. Or just type into your search engine, “What is______”, which can be a fun rabbit hole to go down, sometimes. In the rest of the English speaking world our biscuits = a close approximation of scones, our sausage gravy = a medium to thick white sauce cooked with sausage.

    Something else I find odd, soup in England always appears to be pureed and if left chunky, it is a stew.

  14. ZombieDawg says:

    Biscuits & gravy?
    You yanks are weird ☺
    A decent aussie bbq will cure you though…turn yerz into real men ☺

  15. CC says:

    I guess Bisquick hasn’t made it down under yet – pity.

  16. BorntoRaiseHell says:

    I guess the nearest Aussie recipe for ” biscuits” is damper

  17. FaCubeItches says:

    Unless something begins with “Oi, cunt…” it is not authentic ‘Strine. Then again, there is always the possibility that my Australian relatives are low-class.
