This week, to celebrate National Biscuits & Gravy Day, Tom calls up Matt Cole (@mc_dj_mc) to get a little history lesson (maybe also a geography lesson?) about southern cooking and what goes into the titular gravy! What makes a sausage gravy a uniquely beautiful partner for a flaky breakfast biscuit? How does someone even *make* gravy out of breakfast sausage? Is it, like, actually good, or just filling and satisfying? Matt challenges Tom to make Biscuits & Gravy before the second half of the show, and Tom challenges Matt to spend a little time cooking for himself as a self-care thing! We also talk Dippy Eggs, and what makes southern cooking the best cooking. Do you have a favorite way to eat biscuits & gravy? Did we miss something that you think absolutely should've been mentioned?

The Biscuit Recipe: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/20075/basic-biscuits/ (although, obviously, I used butter instead of shortening, which, in retrospect, is maybe part of why I had texture issues? But also who buys shortening??) Debate This! episode 69: https://www.debatethiscast.com/blog/2020/12/1/episode-69-mr-toads-uncomfortably-horny-journey Debate This!
