What are Biscuits and Gravy?
I thought you would never ask! They are fresh homemade country style biscuits (the kind you would have with fried chicken) covered with a creamy pork sausage gravy that is very simply seasoned with salt and pepper. It you have never tried it or made it fresh at home I suggest you do so as soon as possible. It is delicious!
How to make Biscuits and Gravy.
Let’s start with the warm mouthwatering biscuits. The flour, sugar, baking powder and salt are sifted together and then placed in a food processor. The butter is added one tablespoon at a time and pulsed. Pour back in bowl that you sifted in and slowly add milk until rough ball forms. Place on flour covered surface and pat out to half inch thick, let rest and then cut biscuits with glass or biscuit cutter and bake. Piece of cake or this case a cookie sheet full of homemade fresh biscuits.
Now for the gravy! Brown good quality bulk breakfast sausage. I personally like to leave mine a little chunky but you can break it up real fine if you like. Remove that browned sausage to a plate, wipe the pan clean and add the butter to melt. Whisk in flour and brown for a couple of minutes. Slowly whisk in milk and cook until slightly thickened. Add sausage back to the pan and season with salt and pepper to taste.
See what I mean! Not difficult at all. Now you have fresh homemade biscuits and gravy!
