I never ate biscuits & gravy growing up. In fact, the very idea of eating a biscuit in some kind of milky, white gravy was fairly disgusting to me. As an adult I've often celebrated holidays with my step-family. My step grandmother makes the best down-home southern-style breakfast you've ever had. It was there I realized that biscuits & gravy is not only delicious, but it's pretty easy to make.
Biscuits & Gravy
You can make biscuits with the standard Bisquick Recipe or you can dress them up with the following:
2 1/2 c. Bisquick
1/4 c. cold butter
2 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 c. buttermilk
1 egg & 1 Tbsp. water
1. Combine Bisquick with butter using a pastry cutter.
2. Add sugar and buttermilk and combine. Knead thoroughly in bowl
3. Pat on table into 1 in. thick dough. Cut with biscuit cutter (or juice can, 2 in. glass etc).
4. Brush tops with beaten egg mixed with water.
5. Bake at 450 for 12 minutes.
For my family of 6, I need to double the following recipe:
1-2 sausage patties
1 Tbsp. flour
1 c. milk
salt & pepper to taste
1. Crumble sausage in a skillet and cook until nicely browned.
2. Add flour and cook for 1 minute.
3. Add milk and salt & pepper (I usually do about 1/4 tsp of each). Cook over med heat until thickened (just a few minutes)
4. Serve over hot biscuits.
