Guys, just…stop. Stop everything and make this.
This is the first thing I’ve made out of Emeril Lagasse’s soon-to-be-released cookbook, Kicked Up-Sandwiches, and I sure do have a good impression now!
Traditionally made with ham, Emeril changes things up with fried chicken.
And, we’re not talking about just any biscuits. Cheddar and Green Onions Biscuits give bite and flavor that’s more elegant than a plain buttermilk biscuit.
Yeah. All that and… I’ve never made my own biscuits before.
Really. I’m not joking. I guess I’ve never felt the urge to try it before? Now, I couldn’t see why I wouldn’t want to make them myself.
Emeril’s recipe is simple and required ingredients I already had.
Look at those yummy pieces of cheese and green onions.
I rolled these out pretty thin, knowing that I wanted to eat it like a sandwich. I could have rolled them thicker and would have had enough for dinner, but these smelled so good while I mixed the batter that I knew I would want to take one or two for tomorrow’s lunch.
Or, who am I kidding – breakfast?
Emeril also puts a spin on the gravy with coffee, chicken stock, onions and green onions, thickened up and well-seasoned so it can hide in all the nooks and crannies of the fried chicken.
I WILL be making this recipe again.
You could, too! Kicked-Up Sandwiches won’t be released until October 16, but as a #SeriousSandwich Cookalong blogger, I’ll be giving away a copy to one lucky reader starting October 8!
Until then, I’ll be back with Emeril’s Columbia Street Grinder and Ginger Ice Cream Sandwiches with Ginger Molasses Cookies. Yeah, there’s an ice cream recipe in this book. I about died, too.
