Happy National Buttermilk Biscuit Day! Who knew such a thing existed? There is a special day for just about anything and everything! Do you tend to eat the foods on national “days”? I like to try and eat whatever day it is, when I know about them.
I remember my great grandmother making homemade buttermilk biscuits and grits when I was really young. The smell of homemade anything in her kitchen was always southern and delicious. Yummy! While I never got her recipe, making homemade biscuits require just the right balance of ingredients and bake time, and I don’t think she ever measured anything. With that in mind, luckily we have restaurant options here to find tender, buttery biscuits without making a mess in the kitchen.
Looking for a place to get your National Buttermilk Biscuit Day fix? Try one of these popular local favorites: The Flying Biscuit at Lake Sumter (my personal favorite), First Watch at either Trailwinds or on Bella Cruz, TooJay’s Deli-Bakery-Restaurant in Lake Sumter or Brownwood, Darrel’s Diner has multiple locations, and there’s Bob Evans and Cracker Barrel too (both are faves of my parents). Make sure to come back to Villager Eats to find the daily specials for dining and happy hour!
