Biscuits and Gravy
Biscuits and gravy is often served as a hearty and filling breakfast or brunch dish, and is popular in the Southern and Midwestern regions of the US.
8 biscuits (homemade or store-bought)
1 lb breakfast sausage
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 425°F.
- If using homemade biscuits, prepare them according to your recipe or bake the store-bought biscuits according to the package instructions.
- While the biscuits are baking, cook the breakfast sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks. Cook until the sausage is browned and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
- Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the flour is fully incorporated and starts to brown slightly.
- Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the gravy thickens. If the gravy is too thick, you can add more milk to thin it out.
- Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the warm biscuits with the sausage gravy spooned on top. Enjoy!
