Cooking From Scratch - Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

Updated on December 17, 2007

Cooking from scratch is a great way to enjoy food and save money in the kitchen. Sausage biscuits and gravy is a favorite around here. I guess that happens when you grow up in the south. This recipe is fast and easy, which makes it that much better.


1/2 pound ground sausage

2 tablespoons of butter

2 cups of milk - I use dry milk in all cooking to save money

2 tablespoons of flour

2 cans buttermilk biscuits - the kind you whack on the counter to open


Brown the sausage, breaking it up as it cooks. While this is cooking get the biscuits in the oven, my biscuits say to cook on 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Mix together the milk and flour. When the sausage is cooked through, add the butter to the pan and turn the heat down to medium. When it melts pour in the milk/flour mixture and stir constantly until it bubbles and thickens. Once it is thick turn off the heat and spoon over the biscuits.

This is another good breakfast to have for dinner. It is delicious and filling. We typically have sauteed potatoes with it and pour the gravy over the potatoes as well. While the potatoes are sauteing I will sprinkle paprika, pepper, onion salt and garlic powder over the potatoes for flavor. We sometimes will have scrambled eggs with the sausage and gravy biscuits too. This is a little faster than the potatoes, so if you are really pressed for time, I would choose this option. Enjoy!
