Sometimes we crave comfort foods because they taste good and other times we just need comforting. This week I needed comforting. Thank goodness for Dorie’s Saint Germain des Pres Onion Biscuits, this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe.
I do not believe that biscuits are in any way considered french food. Dorie has included this recipe in her book because she made these biscuits in her kitchen in France.
I probably should have cut the recipe in half, but I was just too excited about making biscuits to do it. And, while I agree that biscuits are generally best hot out of the oven, I tend to enjoy them as leftovers as well. The first night (excuse the very dark photo) we served our biscuits with veal chops, mashed beans, and broccoli. The next morning we served them up at breakfast with scrambled eggs, and later in the day I threw some ham on one for a quick snack.
Yum, yum, and yum! Dorie’s biscuit recipe is fairly classic, except for the addition of some sautéed onion. The dough was quick and easy to work with and my biscuits rose up beautifully in the oven. As far as my personal list goes, biscuits rank pretty high among all time most comforting foods. Hot from the oven, buttery, and flaky, these hit the spot and provided comfort.
