Light, flaky biscuits are any cooks dream.  I’ve made a few of them in my time and have always remembered “a light hand produces a light biscuit.”  Biscuits are not difficult to make, but I must say I’ve had some that were – to be kind – less than light.  Basically, you don’t over-mix them.

I have always mixed my biscuits with my hand because it’s the quickest way to mix and takes the least amount of working the dough.  So when my goodie-box from Adluh arrived, I was just a tad skeptical when I saw the Adluh Yellow-Flake Biscuit Mix.

It’s no secret that I don’t use a lot of mixes – any mixes.  I generally just like to put my own things together.  But I was making meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and mushroom gravy and those biscuits were calling my name.

First thing I did was add too much milk.  I added some self-rising flour to compensate and hoped for the best.

The hoped-for best was outstanding!  These were some fine biscuits!  Light as air, flaky, the epitome of what a biscuit should be.  I was impressed.  And I was even more impressed that even screwing them up didn’t screw them up.  Talk about a forgiving mix!

They went perfectly with the meatloaf!  So perfectly, in fact, that Victor had meatloaf sandwiches on biscuits for lunch, today!

And trust me, the picture doesn’t do them justice.  They really were good!

And my meatloaf is as basic as basic can be, with no real recipe or set amount of anything.

I use:

  • ground beef
  • chopped onion
  • garlic powder
  • bread crumbs
  • catsup
  • mustard
  • an egg or two
  • worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper

Form into a loaf and bake.

Really.  that’s it.  And it is virtually always served with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and peas.  It’s Victor’s favorite meal.  Who am I to argue?

It really is the most basic a meatloaf can be.
