Biscuits and Gravy

Ever since making the sausage-cheese biscuits, I’ve been craving biscuits and gravy like crazy. I’d never eaten biscuits and gravy until I was in my early-ish twenties. Tom frequently proclaimed his love for this meal, and frankly, I always thought it sounded really weird and it just didn’t appeal to me. But, after trying it once, I was hooked. Now I realize that I was weird to think it weird. I mean, what’s not to like about flaky biscuits, breakfast sausage, and gravy? Nothing.

Sausage gravy is pretty much the easiest thing to make, ever. All you do is cook bulk sausage, and then make a super quick gravy from the drippings in the pan, a little flour, and milk. That’s it. Making the biscuits is the most time consuming part and even that is pretty easy. I used a recipe for buttermilk biscuits I love and have used before* but there is no shortage of biscuit recipes out there I’ve been meaning to try, and I may try one out next time that rises a little higher.

Even though this is easy to make, it’s still a very welcome breakfast that feels special. Okay, in actuality we  had this for lunch on a weekend because it’s hard for me to get my act together first thing in the morning and my child is a food beast, who wants to eat rather quickly after waking  up. Either way, we all love this, and can’t wait to  have it again soon—for any meal of the day.

I must admit that I have never had a proper biscuits and gravy. Just another thing that needs to change.

I looove biscuits – they’re one of my favorite breakfast items :) I’m sad to admit that I’ve never had them with sausage gravy before though – I must try it! Sounds like such a tasty treat!

I never realized that sausage gravy was that easy to make. This is dangerous information….
