Biscuits and Gravy


When was the last time you had some biscuits and gravy ? In the colder months of the year, it is several times a week. This time of year its not that often. But today, its whats for breakfast . While my coffee is brewing, I am going to tell you how I do it. I have an electric skillet, so I use it for my gravy. I turn it up to about 350 and add about a 1/4 inch of water. When it gets steaming, I add a whole roll of sausage. As it cooks, I break it up with a spatula into little pieces. After it browns, I turn down the heat and drain off the fat and remaining water. In a 2 cup measuring cup, I add 2/3 cup flour and 1 cup cold milk. I mix it with a fork, and pour over the sausage. I ill fill the measuring cup with water, and keep it ready. I add about 2 teaspoons pepper, ans 2 teaspoons seasoning salt. I turn up the heat again and add the water while stirring until it gets just thick enough to where it will coat the spatula, but not stick. Now for the biscuits. I need to give a big thumbs up here, because I love these biscuits.

I started using these frozen biscuits a little while back, and decided I would never buy the can kind again. These things are the best, pop them in the oven for a few minutes, and it tastes like you mixed them yourself.
Well, there you go. Fry some eggs and potato's, and your set for the day. And speaking of fried potato's, I think I will share hoe I do those sometime, you will love them. If you have a version of sausage gravy, or chipped beef gravy, please let me know.

Sunday breakfast at Casa de Hawg is typically biscuits and gravy, thanks to my wife.

Usually sausage gravy, but she'll make chocolate gravy if I've been especially good...

I make mine similar to yours except I like to use condensed milk and not have it too thin, I like mine more on the thick side. Condensed milk gives it a richer flavor since we use 2%. Just don't use sweetened condensed milk or you will not wind up with what you expected.
