Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Biscuits and gravy is one of those foods that just reminds me of home. My dad used to make this for us on the weekends. When I first met Hubby, he had no idea what biscuits and gravy were. Crazy Northeasterner! He fell in love the first time he had my dad’s biscuits and gravy. And it’s so simple to throw together when you’re half asleep on a Saturday or Sunday morning.

I like to use the flaky buttermilk store bought biscuits. You could definitely make your own from scratch if you wanted. We also like our gravy pretty thick. Feel free to add more milk to thin out your gravy if you prefer.

    I love the nerdy charm of Alton too! And that first picture = total food porn! You shouldn’t do that to me, now I’m stuck here without a cinnamon roll to eat. Cruel…

    Can’t disagree with Steph’s comment, food porn is good. We’ll be making these tomorrow for breakfast.

    Did you cover them while they were rising in the oven? The recipe doesn’t say whether or not to and mine (I’m making them right now) aren’t rising…I guess I’ll just throw them in the oven to bake and hope it works out like yours did.

    I did not cover them. Mine did rise enough in the oven while baking. Hopefully yours turn out as well!

    I love AB! I think he’s geeky but he definitely knows great many things about cooking, baking, etc. So when it comes to a recipe from AB, I definitely give it a try! Especially since you’re so good at posting this recipe, I will have to make it this weekend! Your picture also convinces me that this can be done, by an amateur cook like myself!

    Thanks for posting and for sharing!

    All the brown sugar mix came out of mine while baking. What did I do wrong?
