Lots And Lots Of Nashville Biscuit Love, And Sufganiyot Inspiration

We had the very best lunch at Biscuit Love in Nashville. It started out as a food truck and now has this nice-size location

The portions are super generous, so we just ordered for the table and we snacked around. Apparently they have a ‘secret’ menu with which you can switch some things around, so Av got the Princess biscuit ‘Biscuit, Nashville Style Spicy “Hot Chicken” Thigh, Pickles, Mustard, Honey’ but he really just wanted a biscuit and hot chicken, so they talked him into some gravy and said it’s the ‘Nasty Princess’ as it combines elements from the ‘East Nasty’ biscuit. It fed us all.

Since we didn’t realize how big it was, we ordered what everyone says you *have* to order — the ‘bonuts’ — “Fried Biscuit Dough, Lemon Mascarpone, Blueberry Compote”

…and since it was Chanukah, it inspired me to do our sufganiyot (fried doughnuts) this year not as doughnuts or beignets (we usually make beignets), but as fried biscuits a la Biscuit Love.

I just made my fave biscuit recipe, fried them at 350* until they were a nice golden brown (just 2-3 minutes, tops)

Served at our big Chanukah supper. Hmmmm my presentation could use some work, but served with bowls of warm chocolate and Bonne Maman strawberry preserves, guess what? They were inhaled. Looooved them.

One morning, we took the boys back to the Loveless Cafe outside Nashville for breakfast

At Mexican restaurants, there’s the basket of chips. At some barbecue places or fish camps, it’s the basket of hushpuppies. At the Loveless, it’s the biscuits that hit the table first.

So light, so good, so so so so very good.

This day, I had the fried green tomato with pimento cheese biscuit
