I don't know if this is Popeye's recipe, but I've had it for 30 years and it makes great biscuits. My highschool home ec. teacher had it in a church cookbook. I always bake these in an iron skillet and place a pat of butter on top of each biscuit. These biscuits remind me of my grandmother's cathead biscuits.


  1. Cut sour cream into biscuit mix.
  2. Add club soda and mix.
  3. Turn out dough on floured surface.
  4. Roll dough with rolling pin til about one inch thick.
  5. Cut dough with biscuit cutter and place in buttered iron skillet.
  6. Place a pat of butter on each biscuit and bake at 450 for 10 minutes or until browned to your liking.

So insanely good I can't even find the words. The one change I made: I melted a stick of margarine in the baking dish, put my biscuits in and flipped them over before baking. Unbelievable. Best recipe EVER. :)

I had to add a little more biscuit mix to get the consistency right but one they were cooked I had to make my self stop eating these. Yum. Thanks for sharing OmaJane!!!
