Here in the South, we definitely love our fried food. Fried chicken, fried squash, fried okra – I mean, can you blame us? At the top of that list of favorite fried foods sits Chicken Fried Steak smothered in white country gravy. Add you a side of mashed taters – also smothered in gravy, along with a buttermilk biscuit to sop up whatever gravy is left on your plate – and you’ve got a plate straight outta foodie heaven.
Wow, I sure said gravy a lot there. I like gravy. A lot. It’s hereditary, so blame my mama. (Sorry Mama)
Now, make sure you serve this classic southern dish with another classic piece of the South - my Mama’s buttermilk biscuits. If you ain’t tried them yet, well you best do so because you have never tried a better biscuit than hers. Even if you’ve never been able to make a good biscuit, you can make my Mama’s.
And, don’t forget Great Granny Brown’s mashed taters.
