Biscuits and gravy are just about the most southern dish in existence. Every diner, cafe, and hometown restaurant is basically required by law to have this dish on the menu, and for good reason. It’s absolutely delicious! Here’s my version of this southern favorite:
Brown 1/2 a pound of breakfast sausage in a pan.
Break the sausage into small pieces as it cooks.
Sprinkle in 4 tbs of flour.
Stir the flour in with the sausage and allow it to cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add in 3 to 4 cups of milk. 3 cups will give you a thicker gravy while 4 cups will make the gravy much thinner.
Stir in the milk and continue stirring regularly as the gravy thickens.
Once the gravy begins to thicken, season it to taste with salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne.
Stir everything together then turn off the heat.
Serve the gravy over homemade biscuits and enjoy!
Biscuits and Gravy
- 1/2 pound ground breakfast sausage
- 4 tbs flour
- 3-4 cups milk
Brown the breakfast sausage in a large pan. Break the meat into small peices as it browns. After the meat is fully cooked, sprinkle in the flour. Stir in the flour and cook the mixture, while stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes.
Slowly add in the milk while stirring. For thicker gravy add 3 cups, for thinner gravy use all four cups of milk.
Stir the mixture periodically while it cooks and thickens. Once the gravy is thick, season to taste with salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne.
Serve spooned over homemade biscuits.
