How to Make Buttermilk Biscuits
- If you do not have buttermilk available, you can prepare a substitute by combining 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar, and allowing the mixture to stand for 5 minutes.
- The biscuits can be served with butter, honey or fruit preserves as a breakfast side dish. Alternatively, they can be topped with ham, bacon, sausage, or eggs for a hearty breakfast sandwich.
