    Biscuits and Gravy, something I havent had since I was 14/15 when I was at my grandmothers for a month and i miss em. Really good ones not those shitty ones you get from restaurants. My grandfather owns a small farm so everything was home made, from the milk to the sausage it was incredible.

    If you can't make good biscuits & gravy then you deserve to starve. It's quite easy to prepare.

    I'm pretty sure we're talking about southern US style biscuits here (very far from sweet cookies). I can't imagine what other kind would go so well with gravy.

    British scones closely resemble a North American biscuit (many recipes are actually identical) — itself not to be confused with the English biscuit, which equates to the American cookie. In the United States, there is a growing tendency to refer to sweet variations as "scones" (perhaps under influence from espresso bars, where they are popular fare), while those eaten as part of savoury meals are known as "biscuits". American "scones" are often baked to a dry and somewhat crumbly texture, and are typically large and rectangular; more like a cross between a cookie and a muffin than a biscuit. In Canada, both tend to be called "biscuits" or "tea biscuits".

    Anyone can make biscuits but no one makes them as well as some 80 year old woman.

    I am shocked at the fact that scones are really Scottish.

    The main difference between American biscuits and scones is sugar. Biscuits are generally not sweet, while scones generally are. Aside from that they are quite similar.

    ADDITION DESBOT

    A biscuit with jam would be called a scone over there. All biscuits are scones over there.

    ADDITION 2

    This gravy is much too thick. It's supposed to be a sauce, not a pudding.
