The restaurants themselves are an American chain of combined restaurant and gift stores with a Southern country charm. Each location features a covered porch littered with rocking chairs, a stone fireplace and wooden board games on every table. Cracker Barrel has received awards for their menus, their advertising, and their charitable donations. Zagat’s has mentioned Cracker Barrel in two editions (2010 and 2011) for their famous breakfasts.
My recipe starts with Bisquick, the familiar baking mix in the bright, yellow box. It was invented in 1931 and has been a staple in American kitchens ever since. If you don’t have Bisquick on hand, don’t worry. One cup of Bisquick can be substituted by a mixture of one cup of flour, 1 1⁄2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt, and 2 1⁄2 tablespoons of oil or melted butter (or by cutting in 2 1⁄2 tbsp of Crisco or lard).
To make these biscuits taste more like Popeye’s biscuits or KFC biscuits, brush melted butter on top of each before they are placed in the oven and again when you take the biscuits out of the oven. Freshly baked biscuits right out of the oven are hard to beat. Cracker Barrel makes some of the most delicious biscuits around and now you can too!
