    Biscuits and Gravy

    This recipe comes from the Magnolia Table Cookbook. I thought about posting it with the homemade biscuits I shared a few weeks ago, but thought it deserved it’s own post! Sausage gravy and biscuits may not be the prettiest ‘brunch food,’ but they are always a crowd pleaser (especially for the men). Comfort food at it’s finest!

    These homemade biscuits and gravy became a fast favorite in my household. We like to make them on the weekends or when hosting a brunch at our place. The homemade biscuits are light and flaky, while the sausage gravy is creamy and hearty. Together they make the perfect pair. Believe me when I say that you need to make this biscuits and gravy recipe ASAP! :)

    How to make biscuits and gravy

    Making biscuits and gravy is a lot easier than you may think. Of course it starts with a good, WARM homemade biscuit and then comes the gravy.

    1. Cook the sausage patties over medium heat in a large skillet, until browned. Flip them halfway through cooking. Transfer the patties to a plate when cooked. Chop once cooled. You could always use regular breakfast sausage as well.
    2. Turn the heat to medium low and then whisk in 3 Tablespoons of flour with the grease and a little bit of milk. Whisk in a little more milk until the mixture is smooth. Then pour in the remaining milk and whisk until smooth. Bring to a light simmer and the gravy has slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. If it’s too thin, whisk in another Tablespoon flour, or if it’s too thick, add milk a couple Tablespoons at a time.
    3. Stir the sausage into the gravy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot over warm biscuits.
