Cooking Through the Football Season – Week 5

Arkansas.  What can you say about Arkansas? 

Well, they kept our mascot, Miss Reveille, and our band off the field for this game.  It seems as though they desperately want a rivalry.  We’ve been calling them the Tech of the SEC around our house.  If you’re an Aggie, you get that.

The Aggies?  I think our team is hungry for a win on the road.  This is our first away game, after all.  As Aggies, we’re all hungry for pig!

Our menu item for the day is courtesy of the Arkansas Razorbacks menu: Ham Stuffed Biscuits with Mustard Butter.

The biscuits are different than the biscuit recipe that I normally use.  These called for yeast rather than relying solely on chemical leveners (baking powder & baking soda).  I don’t know that I’d dig them for a normal breakfast biscuit, but for these little mini sandwiches, they worked great. 

I was also skeptical about the mustard butter, but I found myself to be pleasantly surprised.  Even with a good “slathering” of it on the biscuit, it just gave a hint of the mustard flavor that compliments the ham perfectly.

All in all, a great finger food that would be perfect for your next tailgate (regardless of the time of day).  Especially when you need to prepare yourself to feast on pig!

Beat the Hell Outta pig!

Bye week next week, so I’ll catch up with you in two,

Gig ‘em and God Bless the Aggies!
