Biscuits and Gravy

It's Brinner time again!  And I'm throwing in a Southern flair.  You can't go to the South and not have Biscuits and Gravy.  And it's exactly what it sounds like - a biscuit, with gravy.  But Southern style is a white gravy loaded with yummy sausage.  And in true Southern fashion, it's a one pot meal, using the fat from the sausage to thicken the gravy.  If you want a little more spice, you can add a dash of cayenne pepper.  I toned my recipe down a bit in order to please the kidlets.  And the best part is that this is a simple dish, taking about 15 minutes from start to finish.

Biscuits and Gravy


1 lb. ground country sausage
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups milk
2 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
1 can Grands® Biscuits (8 count)


1. Cook biscuits according to package instructions.

2. While biscuits are cooking, prepare gravy.  Preheat a skillet over medium heat.  Add sausage.  Brown, making sure to break sausage into small pieces as it cooks.

3. When meat is browned, add butter and melt.  Add flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.  Stir to coat meat.  Pour milk over meat and stir.  Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes to thicken gravy.  Remove from heat and add parsley.  Serve over biscuits immediately.
