The food on Triple D always looks so delicious! (And I think I saw the episode with the biscuits in gravy Harry - there's no way I could finish eating that much food, but I would give it a go for sure!)

Actually all the portions served on Triple D look huge!

No contest! I'd lose before I even started!

My visits to the US have not involved anything other than fast food/chain restaurant food I'm afraid. I will some day make it to a diner like the ones on Triple D though!

The main difference is texture, IMHO. Scones are heavier, denser and, in the case of the recipes from this book I use most often, scones tend to be drier. I find I'm usually adding a bit more liquid than called for. Biscuits tend to be fluffier and a bit moister. Probably more favorable for soaking up all that gravy. Also, most of the scones that are sold around here are sweet, not savory.

i think what gravy meant,cg is that what we call biscuits you call cookies & what we call scones you call biscuits.so it sounds odd to a brit to have gravy on biscuits.we do have savoury scones over here,usually baked with cheese.
omg cg,savoury cheese scones(biscuits)with sausage & bacon gravy....mmmmm...hubba hubba!!
