Cracklin' Biscuits

The Cajuns, always looking for variation in recipes, certainly created a winner here. Adding the hog cracklin' to the biscuit mixture created a unique breakfast item. If you don't have cracklin's, you may wish to substitute salted pork skins.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup chopped hog cracklin's
  • 1 1/2 TBSP sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. Mix well to ensure proper blending. Using a pastry blender, cut 2/3 cup of butter into flour mixture. Once butter has been well blended into flour, add buttermilk and chopped cracklin's. Continue to mix until biscuit dough is well formed. Place dough on a floured board and knead lightly. Roll dough out until approximately 3/4-inch thick. Cut biscuits with a 3-inch biscuit cutter until all are formed. Place biscuits in a greased 12-inch Lodge cast iron skillet and drizzle with remaining melted butter. Bake until golden brown, approximately 25 minutes.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 8-10 biscuits
