Biscuits have long been a staple of the southern diet. Families baked biscuits for breakfast and ate them with butter, sorghum syrup, gravy, or jellies. Many Southerners recall that their introduction into the world of baking came through the preparation of biscuits, almost as a rite of passage. Mothers and grandmothers taught young girls how to mix and prepare biscuits, measuring by “pinches” or through the “feel” of the dough.
To commemorate this rite of passage, Midstate Mills is celebrating it with a FREE sausage biscuit for Southern Biscuit® Day on Tuesday, September 14. Johnsonville Sausage® will be donating breakfast sausage to compliment these free biscuits. They will be giving away biscuits between 7:00 am and 1:00 pm to anyone who stops by the town square in Newton at the Catawba Museum. It will be served fast for people on the go.
It is also the last day of the Catawba Museum’s 60th anniversary celebration, another reason to visit the Newton town square and enjoy a homemade biscuit with sausage.
The event is sponsored by Midstate Mills in Newton, NC, a family-owned mill just footsteps from the town square. Midstate Mills is celebrating its 75th anniversary as maker of Southern Biscuit® Flour and Tenda-Bake® Corn Meal and Pancake Mixes. Come out and meet the family owners, and grab a quick free breakfast.
