How to Entertain Like a Southerner... with Biscuits!
From Carrie Morey's hot little suppers cookbook
Southern Entertaining Necessities:
- • A signature savory dip
- • Handmade biscuits or grits
- • A "fool-proof" recipe
- • Your appetite!
If there is one thing that every good Southerner knows, it's to always be ready for unexpected guests. Whether it's a weekday and my girls bring friends home from volleyball practice, a weekend on the boat, or a house of rotating friends and family that helped us get by when my girls were just born – we are always prepared to have extra seats at the table.
Entertaining in the south comes down to a few things: good food, good weather, and good company. I love spending time in our kitchen or around the patio. Over the years, I've put together a few fool-proof ways that I entertain to make life easier on the hostess in my cookbooks, Callie's Biscuits and Southern Traditions and Hot Little Suppers.
Today, I'm rounding up a few of my personal favorite Callie's Hot Little Biscuit southern staples to keep stocked for entertaining guests – expected or unexpected!

For the cocktail party where you don't want to cook:
- You've got to have our Hostess Helper Kit – everything you need to make entertaining effortless!
- I also always keep our Cocktail Pecans and Cheese Crisps on hand. The pecans are candied with just the right amount of salt and spice and our Cheese Crisps use extra sharp cheddar and a hint of freshly cracked black pepper for a kick!
The perfect hostess gift: I love to gift items that can be enjoyed after the guests have left! Here are three of my go-to kits for gift giving for the entertainer in your life!
