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.

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Yield: 4


1 pkg sausage
2 cups milk
3 Tbsp flour
fresh ground pepper
8 biscuits


While biscuits are baking, make sausage gravy.

Brown sausage in a skillet. Add milk and flour to pan and whisk together to form a gravy. Add more milk to thin the consistency out, more flour to thicken the consistency. Season with pepper to taste.

Serve gravy over biscuits.

    I love the idea of a week of family favorites! Can’t wait to see them all. And you started off with a bang with this lovely pie. I love the tip about the flour too – I will definitely remember that one.

    I just made a fabulous pecan pie and this one looks great as well! For my crust I actually had no trouble taking it out. I didn’t butter or flour it or anything extra. It was a no roll crust from Joy the Baker and tasted fabulous!

    That pie looks scrumptious! We used to have one every year at Thanksgiving dinner, but somehow no one made one this year – it was so sad.
