As soon as fall weather begins to creep in, I start thinking about all the comforting, casserole style dishes that I want to make. I love a dish that has the versatility to be served at any meal, and also has an ingredient list of affordable and easy to find items. This savory cobbler hits all the marks. Caramelized onions, thinly sliced mushrooms and hardy greens in a creamy sauce with cheesy biscuits on top, what’s not to love? I also used the slicer attachment for the onions and mushrooms, which made prepping this a dream.
These are not your typical biscuits. Tall and pillowy they are not, they are actually kinda on the squatty side of biscuits. But what they are is full of butter and tangy sourdough flavor with a soft fluffy interior and crispy exterior. Oh, and they don’t rely on any commercial leavening agents. Just good ol’ sourdough starter. And you make them up the night before and let them sit for 8-12 hours to develop all those sourdough flavors. Come morning, bake them off and you can have long fermented sourdough biscuits in less than 30 minutes for breakfast. Dreams do come true….
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Since this post falls on a holiday, I decided to figure something out that could be made with leftovers of traditional foods people might be cooking today. Last year our bonus post for March was a basic Irish Soda Bread. I delved a bit into the history of the bread and my version stuck to the more historic recipes, just flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk. One of my favorite things to do with leftover bread is make bread pudding. Perfect for a simple dessert or even breakfast (along with some corned beef hash!)
