The MacGregor from Honest Biscuits

Waiting for you at the West Seattle Farmers Market: one giant biscuit, filled with bacon, cheese, and caramelized onions.

Crunchy and crumbly on the outside, soft and buttery inside.

At the start of the year, Honest Biscuits set up shop at the West Seattle Farmers Market, where owner Art Stone tempts chard-shoppers with oversize, buttery packets.

Stone, who described his biscuits to Hanna Raskin as “crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside,” offers rotating flavors. On one recent visit, Honest Biscuits offered a standard version, another made with Beecher’s cheese, and an especially tempting-looking number with a big chunk of Theo chocolate baked in the middle.

But the $5 MacGregor might be the perfect introduction to Stone and his biscuits. This version is studded with Hempler’s bacon and caramelized onions, as well as Beecher’s cheese. Heat it up as a market-wandering snack, or take it home and make that bad boy into a sandwich.

You can track Honest Biscuits’ menu on its website, and keep an eye out for Stone to expand to other farmers markets in the future. There’s also talk of a Mexican-inspired biscuit recipe for Cinco de Mayo.
