Biscuits N’ Porn – A Must Visit in Outer Banks
This might seem a little NSFW, but I promise it’s an innocent post about some delicious biscuits in Outer Banks. Well, in a gas station in Outer Banks. Trust me, you want to visit here.
Don’t worry, the inside of the gas station (restaurant?) was just like every other gas station, no dirty pictures littered the wall. It’s just home to the delicious spot Biscuits N’ Porn. Feel free to bring the whole family, unless you don’t want to share your biscuits.
Here is their whole menu. I actually wanted to order it all. We stopped there in the AM and there was a line of about 6 people in front of us and more coming in the door.
They were also getting phone orders. I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s not the tourists who stop here, but the locals who know this little secret spot the best.
I’m actually not sure why I didn’t get these cinnamon rolls too while at Biscuits N’ Porn. Oh, maybe because I had already eaten this butter laden biscuit and probably didn’t need more carbs in my life.
To the right are some of the protein options you can get including sausage, fried chicken, ham, and bacon.
Oh yeah and there are CHEESE TOPPED biscuits too. In addition to the slice of cheese you can get on your breakfast sandwich. If there is a place like this in Columbus, I expect someone to tell me immediately.
There it is. The best breakfast sandwich I’ve ever eaten and you guys know I love my breakfast sandwiches. I’m 99% sure there is at least one stick of butter inside of this biscuit, which is exactly how they should be made.
Also, this place is crazy inexpensive. We got two biscuit sandwiches, one biscuit, a side of breakfast potatoes and two drinks for $13. That’s amazing. Sometimes “cheap” food is the best food.
I love these kind of breakfast potatoes. They are a pure form of potato that taste best when smothered in a thin hot sauce and a little salt and pepper. They are super easy to recreate at home too!
There you have it. The best biscuits in Outer Banks and quite possibly anywhere we’ve been. Do yourself a favor and stop at Biscuits N’ Porn when you are in town then bring a biscuit sandwich back to us.
If you need some other Outer Banks restaurant recommendations, we’ve got you covered.
Biscuits and Gravy
Austin is a really cool place. Like, super cool. And I haven’t even ventured into town yet. I’m just really digging the weather. It’s slightly humid right now and not too hot, so my skin is way happier. I swear, my skin always is happier in humid places. No matter how much I moisturize and oil and glob on anything hydrating, my skin is always dry in CO. Stupid skin. Stupid CO.
So PaleoFx has been fun so far. I haven’t done much or listened to much, but I’ve met some bloggers and some food lovers. Those are the best kind of people. It’s just so intimidating. All these people know so much and I don’t even know how to find jeans that fit correctly. But seriously. All these people have fantastic cookbooks and blogs and podcasts and gosh knows what else, and I feel like a child. A 24 year old blogging child who knows how to do nothing. Except eat.
I know what I need to do. I need to work on confidence. Sexy Juli 2013 is not possible without confidence. And remember how that was one of my New Year’s Resolutions? Well it was, and it’s still a work in progress.
Speaking of sexy, let’s talk about what’s not sexy. Actually, we’ll talk about what IS sexy and what IS NOT sexy.
- Men in jeans with flip flops. I dig that look. If a guy can pull that off, I’m down. If he can’t, he probably should get tanner feet. And relax a little more. Relaxed people tend to be sexier people.
Lesson 2: What IS NOT sexy
- Men in jeans with five fingers. And a dress shirt. And a blazer. Not ok. Do you hear me?? NOT OK. Just because you have pale toes doesn’t mean you have to wear gloves on your feet. I understand the benefit to five fingers, I do, but when you’re having dinner, after you’ve showered and shaved and put on pants that are more snug around your nether regions, do not slide on foot socks to sport around women who are in high heels.
Lessons learned by JB. You’re welcome male population. I just got you laid. And when I say laid, I mean I just got you flowers around your neck in Hawaii. Not really, but I have to say that so people don’t get offended. But seriously, you’re welcome.
Do you remember the other day when I posted Shrimp and Jalapeño Sweet Potato Biscuits? Well, I topped them with gravy. Because I want gravy on a regular basis. These still aren’t exactly the same, but they did the job. I’m not craving them anymore. Right now I’m just craving sleep. Talking about paleo all day is exhausting. Not really, just eating a lot of food and standing is exhausting. Not really. I’m just a bore. And similar to a child.

Pair this juicy lemon chicken with the dynamite veggie combo of your choice — be it tomatoes and zucchini, peppers and pineapple, sweet potato and red onion, or any others that come to mind. (You can also make sausage kebabs!)
Any one of these drumstick glazes — sweet n' tangy, garlicky herb, or coconut curry — is bound to be a big hit with your friends and family.
Chop and add your peppers and honey to a small pot or a small saucepan. Heat the honey and simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes to infuse it with the pepper flavor and heat.
I used fresh habanero peppers and spicy red dried chiles (Hawaiian Hots), though you can use any peppers you&rsquod like. More on that below.
Remove the honey from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
Strain the honey through a fine mesh sieve. You can toss out the peppers, or enjoy the fresh peppers, as they are now candied with honey.
Store your infused honey in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator.
Use as needed. It&rsquos wonderfully sweet and spicy.
BOOM! It&rsquos very easy to make. I love easy. Go and make yourself some spicy honey! I know you want to.

Easy to make and delicious. Maybe not authentic Mexican but a great weeknight dish nevertheless.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 can 15.5 ounces chili beans
- 1 can 10 ounces enchilada sauce, mild or hot
- 8 flour tortillas 8-inch size
- 1 large yellow onion finely chopped
- 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
- 1 can 2 ounces sliced olives
- ½ cup fresh salsa
- vegetable oil
- kosher salt and ground black pepper
Heat a large skillet over a medium flame and add the ground beef and chopped onion. Season the beef with salt and pepper and sauté it until it is no longer pink. Drain the beef through a strainer, then return it to the skillet. Stir in the chili beans, ¾ cup of the enchilada sauce, and 2 tablespoons of the fresh salsa. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and set it aside.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Spread a tablespoon of the enchilada sauce around the bottom of a baking dish, about 11 x 7 inches.
Heat a half-inch of the vegetable oil in the skillet over low heat. Hold a tortilla along one edge with tongs and dip it in the hot oil, turning it once, until the tortilla is just limp. Drain the tortilla over the skillet, then set it on a plate. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
Place a half cup of the meat mixture on each tortilla and roll them up. Place the enchiladas seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
Sprinkle the enchiladas with the remaining salsa and enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with the sliced olives, then cover the casserole with the shredded cheddar cheese. Bake them in the hot oven, uncovered, for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.
Good To Know About This Beef Enchilada Recipe
These are fairly substantial enchiladas, and the recipe makes 4 servings of 2 enchiladas each. For a larger group, cut the finished casserole in squares.
Food For Thought – Serve small bowls of extra cheddar cheese and chopped onions on the side. A bowl of guacamole and fried tortilla chips would be the perfect accompaniment.
On Your Own – Some cooks save a little time and calories by skipping the tortilla frying procedure. You can eliminate this step, but be aware that the flour is likely to absorb lots of the liquid from the filling, and your enchiladas may come out a bit mushy. The light frying in oil not only make the tortillas pliable, but acts as a seal to keep out the moisture of the filling.

This velvety-smooth sauce uses real cheddar (not the processed stuff) and comes together in less than 10 minutes. Serve as is with chips, fries, or chili dogs, or transform it into the best queso you've ever had. Pro tip: Skip the aged cheddar from the fancy cheese counter—the sauce will be even creamier with a block of no-frills cheddar from the dairy aisle of the supermarket.
Ok, this quick and easy hors d'oeuvre is a little retro, but that means it's just right for an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. And you'll want to scarf down these little cornucopias down as fast as you can make them.
