tenderloin biscuits

Today I’m going to share with you my very favorite breakfast in all of the world – tenderloin biscuits. It’s really just hard to beat it. Little Buddy would say his favorite breakfast includes some type of a waffle and mine revolves around a Southern buttermilk biscuit.

Is it a sign of the times?

I remember growing up Mama would fix biscuits for breakfast a whole lot more than she would waffles. Maybe it’s because my Daddy preferred it that way, but regardless, waffles weren’t served nearly as often at her table as they have been at mine since I’ve grown up.

But, maybe I should start right now and change that situation. Everyone here loves buttermilk biscuits, they couldn’t be any easier to make, and they practically go with everything!

And you know what? These pork tenderloin biscuits can be ready in 15 minutes or less.

No kidding.

Talk about a major win!

Even better, why not go ahead and cook a whole week’s worth of tenderloin biscuits, wrap them carefully and put them in the freezer? Then, for a busy morning on the go, just grab one, pop it in the microwave and enjoy a delicious homemade breakfast that surely beats anything out of a box or a drive thru.



Who wouldn’t love that?

Easy on you and delicious for them!

So, here’s how I make them.
