Okay so our guests from the UK were in a quandary as to what those circles things were on the breakfast plate. They loved breakfast, ate every bite including the pineapple! 

It threw me for a moment, circle things? Oh sausage! haha  Yes our "patties" are flat and round, vs reg shaped snags they are used to.  Then they asked what a biscuit was as they have been seeing it everwhere and what sort of gravy?...I had not planned on that for breakfast tomorrow, might have th change it up now but had bought everything as we have another room checking in from Southern Calf, I don't dare do sausage gravy and biscuits...

ok, clue me in - what's the deal with CA people?  We haven't had any, but it'll be good to know...

There seems to be a disproportionate number of them with dietary issues. They basically subsist on air. Of course, it's a big state with a lot of room for differences! The attitude could use a little tweaking also. No matter what it is you do, they seem to think it could have been done better by trained monkeys. Again, big state with a lot of room for people not like that.

Here in Scotland they have a traditional square sausage, usually called a lorne sausage. Most English people have never seen them either.

 We had UK guests once....cute kids.   We introduced them to "smores"  by the campfire.   They thought they had died and gone to heaven.

No wonder they were confused - who would put gravy on a cookie?

Do the biscuits and gravy thing, a good flaky southern biscuit and creamy gravy!!!  They won't know what to do next.  You are technically in the south so give them southern like no body's business.  But you might want a lighter menu that is easy as a back up plan - at least for your CA folks.

Years ago we stayed with our friends in Atlanta and they served southern biscuits with breakfast. We loved them.

I have tried various recipes but I just can't get them like theirs. Last time they visited they even brought me a bag of southern biscuit mix, but I still can't get the beautiful layered light biscuit they made for us at home.

The trick is to handle the dough as little as possible. Over handling make them "tough".
