When you’re hungry and have a house full of growling tummies what does one make on a perfect snowy morning? This is even great to make when you’re camping too.
Sausage & Gravy n’ Biscuits
Here’s a super easy recipe that can be changed as you make it to suit your tastes.
· 1 lb. of sausage (or more depending on how much sausage you like or how many you’re feeding)
· Flour about a ¼ cup
· 2 – 4 tblsp. Butter
· 3 c. Milk
· Chicken bullion
· Salt & Pepper
1. Take a large skillet and brown up the sausage. Once the sausage is browned, use a slotted spoon, and place in a bowl with NO paper towel!
2. With the grease still in the skillet, lower the heat to about medium and toss in about 4 tablespoons of butter. (And if you’re thinking this is a healthy recipe sorry to disappoint ya!) Melt the butter while mixing it up with the grease. Keep the temperature low otherwise your butter will burn. Once it’s melted start sprinkling in flour, I do 2 tablespoons at a time while whisking it into the butter and grease until smooth.
3. With heat still at medium, gradually whisk in milk and cook till thicken.
- Now here comes the differences. My mother in law leaves her’s like this and serves it. But I like a little bit of extra flavor so I take some chicken bouillon and sprinkle about a tablespoon of the powder in & stir it in. I add mine till it tastes a little less floury. One of my friends will take chicken stock and slowly add it in for taste and to thin it out a little. It’s all a matter of preference. Play with it, have fun.
4. Add sausage; use a spatula to get any grease drippings out of the bowl into the gravy. Stir.
5. Add salt & pepper to taste (I don’t add any salt since I NEVER cook with it), simmer for around 15 minutes.
6. Serve over drop biscuits, either make from scratch or use Grand’s.
This is really an easy recipe and the ONLY way to ruin it is to not check the milk, make it, serve it and for everyone to spit it out because it’s been determined you just used rotten milk to make the gravy AND the biscuits.
BUT I would NEVER know that from personal experience!
