Classic Biscuits & Gravy

Not having grown up in the south, I thought it was awfully strange that people ate biscuits for breakfast. I had only ever eaten biscuits as a dinner side. After we were married my husband convinced me that it wouldn't kill me to try it. My mother-in-law made them for us shortly after and now they make an appearance at our house a few times per year. It's one of those special occasion breakfasts for us. It shows up around Christmastime and weekends that we have visitors in town.  

I was a little embarrassed that I had to ask her for the recipe--because I guess it's not much of a recipe if you know how to make gravy (which I obviously didn't), but I was grateful she wrote it down for me anyway--it's one of the hubby's favorites. My 4-year-old and my picky almost 2-year-old loved these, too!

Biscuits & Sausage Gravy


1 lb. your favorite sausage (I like Johnsonville’s HOT sausage)
¼ cup flour
2 ½ cups milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 can Pillsbury Grands, or 1 recipe of your favorite biscuits


Preheat oven and bake biscuits according to recipe or package instructions.  

Form sausage into patties, if desired.  Brown patties and remove to a plate.  Brown remaining sausage.  Drain off as much grease/flavor as possible. :) Add flour and mix well.  Stir in milk.  Add salt and pepper.  (Lots of pepper!) Gravy will thicken as it boils, and as it cools.  If needed add more milk to reach desired consistency.

  1. I grew up with biscuits and gravy. I've now converted my husband and son!

    1. I love that! I hadn't had them til I was an adult and now loove them. Leesh definitely convinced us we needed to try them and we loove them. :) Hope you are well!

  2. These biscuits do not look like Pilsbury, Omg looking good!!!

    1. These aren't pilsbury, you're right. We'll have to post a favorite biscuit recipe soon to go with these.
