Homemade Biscuits and Gravy

Morning ya’ll! I have no right to say ya’ll because I’ve never lived in the south. But, it goes so perfectly with today’s Tried and True that it just seemed fitting 🙂 Years ago when I was a working woman got a paycheck for working (moms should get paid!), I had a coworker change my life with this recipe. We decided to go to her house during our lunch break so that she could make me her famous “B and G” recipe. I had never tried Biscuits and Gravy, so I was a bit reluctant. I’M SO GLAD I was too afraid so say no, because this recipe is amazing and has become a staple in my home and several other people that I’ve introduced it to.

It’s very simple to put together and is controlled by you, with how thick or creamy you want it. Add more milk if you need it creamier. Add more flour if you need it thicker. It’s that easy! Now, I’m not above using generic brands on most things. However, I must warn you… I have tried other sausages and nothing has compared to Jimmy Dean. My family loves the Hot Sausage Roll, but if you’re not a fan of spice, stick with the regular.  Or if you’re making a for big crowd, do one of each and its the perfect combination. Your life will never be the same now that you know how to make biscuits and gravy. You’re welcome!

Sausage Gravy and Biscuits Recipe

How to Make Sausage Gravy:

As delicious as canned buttermilk biscuits are, let’s be honest – the sausage gravy is the real star of the show. The biscuits are nothing until they’re smothered in this delicious, creamy, savory sausage gravy. The best part? It only takes THREE ingredients to make this biscuit gravy! And chances are, you probably already have 2 of those 3 on hand. Here’s how you make it.

  1. Cook the sausage on medium high heat, breaking it up with a spatula as you go.
  2. Once sausage is cooked through, carefully stir in flour, ½ cup at a time, until sausage has a nice coating. Slowly add your milk, until you’ve reached your desired consistency. (If you prefer soupier, add more milk. If you like the sauce to be thicker, add less milk. If you find you have added too much milk, add flour to thicken it up.)
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You’ll be blown away by how much flavor can be created with such few ingredients in so little time. And then when you pour it over some freshly baked buttermilk biscuits? Match made in heaven!

    I love biscuits and gravy and have eaten ALOT of it. Canned biscuits are nothing compared to a good homemade biscuit. I call them “sopping” biscuits because they pick up that gravy. I have also made gravy with bacon grease. Yummy.
