National Biscuit Month
Beef Pot Pie topped with Cheddar Onion Biscuits is a riff on Chicken Pot Pie
I have fond memories of seeing the kitchen counter covered in flour and my Mom rolling and cutting biscuits for our meal. There was always butter and a variety of jellies and jams, and in the Summer fresh from the garden sliced tomatoes to dress our biscuits. Biscuits here in the South tend to be more savory but, sweet biscuits or scones, are popular too. They're delectable. Homemade cheddar-onion drop biscuits make the perfect topping for this hearty beef pot pie. It's a one dish meal packed with the kind of comfort that's sure to please your hungry eaters.
