Any Southerner worth their salt will tell you that all the biscuits back home are square. Points for authenticity aside, Jacob's take on breakfast scores high marks thanks to a perfectly poached organic egg,  a generous heap of Grain Miller organic grits, and a robust homemade sausage patty. This is a breakfast worth waking up for.
