Whenever we would go to my grandmother's house for lunch growing up she would always have homemade biscuits hot out of the oven. My grandfather taught me how to cut the biscuit in half and add a dab of butter, slices of tomato and onion, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Sounds weird I know but it was crazy good. Over the years I learned to not question some of the things I tried while visiting my grandparents because I was always in for a pleasant surprise. Cornbread crumbled into a glass of milk was life changing for me. I demand encourage you to try it if you have not.
Anyway back to these biscuits. My grandmothers they are not and no I did not eat them with slices of tomato and onion (although now I am wondering why I didn't) but they are delicious. I made them twice in one week because I could not get enough. With only 4 ingredients they take no time at all to make and they can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The outside has a golden crust while the inside is soft and fluffy. They are best served hot out of the oven but if you have some leftover I would heat them in the microwave for 20 seconds or so to warm before eating. You can eat them plain, with honey or jam, or if you are feeling daring you could add some butter tomato and onion and call it a day. I double dare you.
