Cat Head Biscuits: Very southern. When I was in Grand Junction, CO, this winter, we stopped in at Starvin' Arvin's and had them with green chili and eggs. Oh, my! They were like the ones we were forced to eat when we were kids, lol Cuz, they were yummy.
Funny name, delicious biscuit! Loretta gave them this unusual name because when her husband "Doo" made them, he dropped such huge amounts for each biscuit onto the baking sheet. She said they were as big as cat's heads! :)
Cathead Biscuits Don't worry, there aren't any actual cat's heads involved. The origins of the name are lost to time, but the conventional wisdom seems to be that they're called that because they're about the size of a cat's head. An old Appalachian favorite. Less fuss than rolled and cut biscuits. White Lily flour is preferred.
