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.

    That’s funny. We only ever made sugar cookies at Xmas time too. Those poor little Easter Bunnies and Halloween pumpkin cut-out just collected dust in the cupboard. Yours look great; and I’m with your aunt. I like them big and soft. 🙂

    Hey I love that you compared recipes. I made a gazillion wedding cake cookies and used Nancy Baggett’s sugar cookie recipe which worked really well for cut out cookies and they taste good. Very buttery. I was surprised. What a fun party idea.
