Come on Irene
Country Cooking by Irene is a throwback to the good ole’ days of Southern cuisine. It’s set up like a classic cafeteria where you walk through the line and pick what you’ll be having to eat. The menu consists of a variety of southern dishes that are spelled incorrectly and I think the prices are determined by how much the lady working the register likes you.
Although this would have been a great opportunity to enjoy some typical southern fare like a fried pork chop with cornbread and collard greens, it was a little too early for something so heavy and I opted to have a biscuit instead. I ordered an Egg & Cheese biscuit, which at that moment was being served for a $1.75.
I thought I was ordering something light - but this enormous, fluffy biscuit was anything but. The scrambled egg was cooked to order and it was topped with a slice or american cheese, which melted atop the steaming egg and biscuit. The biscuit wasn’t too doughy or flour-y and did a decent job of staying together as I ate it. I might be considered weird, but I think ketchup and black pepper are a great combination for an egg & cheese biscuit. Being able to enjoy all of these ingredients together was the perfect way to enjoy a late-Saturday morning breakfast.
Leave it to me to go to a farmer’s market and find a fresh plate of cholesterol.
