Wonderful from-scratch yeast biscuits-golden and crusty outside and tender inside-were a staple Mom prepared regularly when I was growing up. They are perfect for sopping up gravy from bowls of beef stew and are also great for sandwiches.
"We enjoy these flaky biscuits covered with creamy gravy not only for breakfast, but sometimes for dinner," reports Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. Priced at only 27 cents per serving, "It's hard to find a more stick-to-the-ribs meal and at such a low cost," she notes.

"To complete the meal, I pass a basket of Mini Cheese Biscuits," Chris notes. "We're garlic lovers, so we enjoy the flavor of these easy biscuits. If your taste buds prefer, omit the minced garlic altogether.
"Friends and family tell me these treats are best warm from the oven," Chris adds. "But then, they never last long enough to cool off!"
