The 14th of May is Buttermilk Biscuit Day.
Buttermilk biscuits are a quick, easy bread to make. You can have them for any meal, any time of the day.
Treat yourself to some at a restaurant today. Some restaurants today will offer buttermilk biscuit specials and contests you can enter.
Or, if you are pressed for time, cheat and get the ready-to-bake dough from a supermarket chiller cabinet.
The earliest print mention of a “Buttermilk Biscuit Day” that CooksInfo is aware of dates from 2005. It appeared in several affiliated newspapers across the states at the same time:
