How Big Are Your Biscuits?
A recent post on biscuits by A Yankee in a Southern Kitchen got me thinking about the size of the typical Southern biscuit. Growing up, I seem to remember them always being very small--2" or so in diameter. These days, however, it seems we are experiencing serious biscuit inflation.
I suspect it has something to do with Hardee's and other fast-food restaurants starting to sell biscuits back in, I guess it was the early 1980s. The size of your average biscuit has steadily increased until what used to be enormous "catheads" are now the norm.
Am I just crazy, or is biscuit inflation a real phenomenon? What size are the biscuits you cook at home?
