500BestSquareBiscuits @ Mother’s

Early in the morning every day, the cooks at Mother’s bake several pans of enormous scratch-made biscuits. All morning long, those tall, wide biscuits–usually still hot from the oven–go out with gobs of butter and the same kind of raspberry jelly you find in jelly doughnuts. Obviously, you will not sully your biscuit (all you need is one of them) with that jelly. You can ask to have some of the famous baked ham or bacon or sausage shoved into the biscuit. But I still advise you take the biscuit as it comes. There is no better in this town. (Other than the ones my daughter and I make for one another at home.)
