Galettes - Skillet Biscuits

A Deep South fry bread, called Galettes, made from simply flour and whole milk, shaped into biscuits and fried in a skillet. Serve with butter, jam, jelly, preserves, honey or cane syrup.

These skillet biscuits, what we call galettes down here along the coastal south, are for those times when you just want a biscuit but don't feel like all the mixing, cutting in, rolling and baking. They are quick and delicious, whether it's with a dab of butter alone, or served with jam, jelly, preserves, honey or cane syrup.

Galettes are sometimes made into one big biscuit, as with my biscuit bread, but mostly they are like a fry bread. Pinches of dough are pulled off, rolled into balls and then flattened to about 1/4 inch thick. To avoid overcrowding skillet and chilling the oil, cook them in batches in hot oil until browned on both sides.

Fork and Knife Baked Chili Cheese Dogs

Chili cheese dogs made easy in a baked form, fork and knife required!

Fork and Knife Baked Chili Cheese Dogs

I. Love. Hotdogs. I do! I don't care about what's in them or how they're made. I don't even want to hear about it. If somebody on Team Food Police tries to lecture me about them, I just plug my ears like a child, and drown them out, lalalalalalala... because I love them.

Okay, you have probably not considered shrimp cooked in a brown, beef-based gravy, I'll give you that.

In a gumbo or stew form, shrimp is usually prepared with water, a shrimp stock, or maybe even chicken stock, but beef stock? Sounds a little odd for sure! This was not a dish my Mama ever made, and I remember thinking the very same thing first time I saw it, until... I tasted it. Fabulous!
