onion biscuits

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.

    We loved these, too. I agree – total comfort food! I like that you showed how versatile they are! Have a great weekend!

  2. I liked how you paired your biscuits with both dinner and breakfast, and then again for a snack! Plus, I love the look of your veal chop!

  3. Dinner to breakfast indeed. Half of mine are stocked in the freezer to bake up this weekend for a nice benedict. I’m making it in california so can I name it Anaheim biscuits? 🙂

    I noticed that someone in my house sneaked the leftover biscuits for breakfast the next morning as well 🙂
    Have a nice weekend!

    I think I might be more interested in those chops…

    Biscuits anytime of the day. I love biscuits, toast, etc. more than sweet goodies.
    I tried giving up eating bread during Lent because I would rather have that
    than a piece of cake. Yours look wonderful, and that veal chop looks so good.

    Wonderful looking biscuits! They came out perfectly lovely and look so delicious! Perfect comfort food!!

  12. Veal chops are one of our favorites, your sauce looks terrific – what did you use? Biscuits are true comfort food – and versatile, great with gravy, fried chicken, egg sandwhiches, you name it!

      Thanks, it was actually a Food52 recipe, Veal Chops Lombatina if you would like to look it up on their site. The veal was delicious, but the sauce was actually not as flavorful as I would have liked.

    I like that you turned your biscuits into “every-meal + snacks” biscuits and tried them warm as well as cooled off for next day and for leftovers. Although I froze my extras (I had a busy week) I might bake them all off and follow your lead.

    I am glad that these were a winner for you.

    You’re right, biscuits are a comfort food. These were good weren’t they?

  16. Elaine says:

    Your dinner looks delicious and your biscuits turned out lovely. They are wonderful out of the oven, but I also enjoyed them for leftover ham biscuits. I am glad that they were the perfect comfort food for you. I hope all is well.

  17. All of your uses of the biscuits look and sound fantastic! We’ve warmed up a few for a quick biscuit and butter fix, and I think I will make another batch to do it Dorie’s way, with ham and Champagne 😉
