Biscuits and Gravy

Best Biscuits and Gravy

The classic biscuits and gravy. Weather it is a Sunday morning or a quick dinner. This is a go to for our family. (Not to mention it’s cheap!) It is not a very healthy option but let’s face it sometimes you need to give into carbs!! Enjoy! 

To start I always get refrigerator biscuits and bake them before I get started. (Feel free to make your own.) Most of the time when I am making this I am in a hurry. So feel free to follow your own recipe or bake refrigerator biscuits. You will need 8 all together. 

For the gravy it is very simple buy your favorite sausage. I always use original. But feel free to spice things up and use what your family will like best.

Then you will need milk, flour, salt and pepper. 

Lets make some Gravy

Get a large skillet and start it on medium heat. Then place sausage into hot skillet and fry until no longer pink. Drain as much grease off as you can. 

Once you have all the grease drained sprinkle the flour over the sausage and mix until incorporated. 

When you have the flour mixed in pour milk over sausage and flour mixture. (Be sure to keep stirring so the milk doesn’t burn) The gravy will start to thicken up. Some like it thicker than others just keep and eye on it for your thickness preference.

Once you are happy with the thickness of your gravy, grab some biscuits and pour the gravy over them. You can enjoy this dish plain, scramble up some eggs or a add a side of fruit! 

To store put it in a microwave safe container and refrigerate. (With lid vented if still warm. Once cooled place lid on top.)

Gravy should last 5 days left over or frozen up to 2 months.
