Super Duper Easy Biscuits & Gravy
My husband and I had breakfast with friends awhile back and one couple (ahem… Chris and Jessica) ordered biscuits and gravy. As soon as their dish came out, I started salivating like a moron and my taste buds decided the eggs I ordered were soooo not as good. Luckily, they ordered too much food and I was able to snack a little bit on their dish. This gave me the idea to (duh) try making it myself. I was so shocked at how simple and easy it was. It’s all about the sausage… heh heh.
Ingredients: The Gravy
1 lb Jimmy Deans breakfast sausage (a must)
1/4 cup flour
2 1/2 cups milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
Biscuits: If you don’t have any Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits laying around, fear not! You can make biscuits with either flour or Bisquick mix (which we always have on hand).
1. Prepare your biscuits and have them ready to go on a cookie sheet. Preheat the oven to either 450 degrees or to whatever temp is required for your biscuit recipe.
2. Cook the thawed Jimmy Deans sausage in a skillet (use a large enough skillet or saute pan to fit the rest of the ingredients). TIP: Do not drain out the yummy grease, it gives the gravy a great flavor.
3. Once the sausage is thoroughly cooked, add the 1/4 cup of flour (sprinkle evenly to make your life easier) and mix with sausage until flour is absorbed. It’s really cool to see the flour soak up the juices and make the sausage look all light fluffy
4. Pour in the 2 1/2 cups milk and start whisking. I like getting my skillet hotter to thicken up the gravy faster as I whisk.
5. Add salt and pepper to taste as you go.
6. Pop the biscuits in the oven, turn down the heat in the gravy and cover. Make sure you stir frequently or add more milk if too thick.
Roughly 10 minutes later – BING! When the biscuits are done, pull them out split in half and serve the gravy over top! Voila! Biscuits and gravy to perfection
