Biscuits and Gravy is one of Hubby’s favorite meals to order out when we go out to breakfast. Now that we have a 2 year old we don’t get out of the house very early these days and he rarely gets it. I’m not a big white gravy fan, but I told Josh I would make biscuits and gravy for him so I made good on my promise and put it on the menu. The recipe I used was from my idol, The Pioneer Woman, and I really liked it because there were minimal ingredients and it was a simple recipe for my first attempt. I will say that biscuits and gravy still isn’t my absolute favorite meal, but Hubby said it was delicious and he’s already requested it again! I suppose that means that it was a hit! 😉
– 1 pound breakfast sausage, I just bought the cylindrical Jimmy Dean sausage
– 1/3 cup flour
– 4 cups whole milk
-1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
– 2 tsp. black pepper, to taste
– biscuits, I just used canned biscuits
Crumble and brown the sausage over medium-high heat, until fully cooked. Turn the heat down to medium-low and sprinkle in half of your 1/3 cup of flour. The sausage will absorb most of the flour initially, then add the rest of the flour to the pan. The sausage will look pretty dry at this point. Continue stirring as you increase the heat to medium-high.
Slowly pour in the milk, and add in the pepper and seasoning salt. Once the mixture comes to a boil it will thicken very quickly, so just keep stirring about 8 minutes or so until it is very thick. If the gravy becomes too thick, you can thin it out with a little bit more milk.
Taste and adjust your seasoning before serving over warm biscuits. I served this meal with a side of hash browns and fresh fruit.
