I have yet to meet a person that doesn’t love a good gravy biscuit. I make these at least once a week and for dinner pretty often. Some people are intimidated by gravy. I’ve been watching my mother make it my whole life. This recipe uses a shortcut that I find tastes better than the original way, but the basic technique is still the same.
Start with 1 lb of country mild sausage. I use good ole’ Jimmy Dean. I brown this into very small chunks. Then instead of flour like in the original, I sprinkle the top with a packet of gravy mix. I think it just tastes better than flour, salt and pepper. The package instructions says to mix half with water, and all this other stuff, but I pour the packet right over the top, and stir quickly into the sausage and grease, just like a rue. After I feel the package powder is cooked through, just about a minute , I whisk in almost 2 cups of milk. It will seem really runny for a while, but a few minutes on the heat makes it nice and thick, and delicious! Super easy!
Sausage Gravy Ingredients:
- 1 lb package Country Mild Sausage
- 2 cups milk
- 1 package gravy mix (I use Pioneer Brand Country Sausage Flavor Mix)
- Texas Pete! (optional)
I have yet to perfect homemade biscuits. If anybody out there has a recipe that is fool proof, please share it with me. I am in desperate need of a tutorial!
