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.

    Wow those sound delish! Where do you find cinnamon chips? I think my husband would go nuts for this recipe, maybe with some apple thrown in there too!

    Those look so good….wish I could get the cinnamon chips here in East Texas! Did you find them at a specialty shop or your regular grocery market? Blessings, K

    Yum! My comments are along the same theme as the others – I’ve been dying to make cinnamon chip scones (based on ones that I tasted from Concord Teacakes in Concord, MA) but have yet to find cinnamon chips. I believe you got yours on your Hershey, PA trip? I may have to find them online somewhere because I’m convinced they’re not sold in New England.

    I like the cinnamon chip substitution! I used to make scones a LOT – and then I bought a scone pan at king arthur and I never made them again.

    I’m thinking I’ll dust it off for mother’s day brunch – Mama clean plate loves scones!
