Biscuits and gravy are a southern staple, and one of my family’s favorite breakfasts. Sometimes we even have it for lunch or dinner. It’s the epitome of food! Flakey biscuits fresh out of the oven, savory sausage gravy, you just can’t go wrong. It’s so simple to make that you’ll probably want to have it every week for Sunday breakfast!
I like to make homemade biscuits with mine, but if you’re in a pinch you can always buy Pillsbury! Homemade is definitely better though.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and start on your biscuit dough.
In a medium bowl combine 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Then cut in 1/2 cup of cold butter. Using a fork stir in 1 cup of buttermilk just until all of the flour is mixed in.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and press out to about 1 inch thick, then fold in half. Repeat that step 3 more times then flatten to 3/4 inch thick.
Once you get your biscuits in the oven start on the gravy. Cook 1 pound of ground breakfast sausage (I use regular) in a large skillet on medium/high heat. When that’s finished cooking add 2 tablespoons of butter, once the butter has melted sprinkle a quarter cup of flour and mix until the lumps are gone. Cook for another minute before adding 1 3/4 cup of milk. Mix well so it doesn’t get lumpy. Continue cooking or another 5 minutes on low and add salt and pepper to taste.
