This Southern-style biscuit emporium offers a B.Y.O.B. (Build Your Own Biscuit) menu with a choice of some 23 ingredients at various prices. The list of their own signature knife-and-fork biscuits, though, leads off with this one, a combination of fried chicken, goat cheese, pepper jelly, and balsamic reduction.

West Virginia

This hearty sandwich may or may not cure hangovers, but it should certainly assuage hunger. The ingredients are eggs, sausage, onions, green peppers, and pepper jack cheese, combined on a bagel, a toasted English muffin, or a country biscuit.
