Biscuits and Gravy are sooo good! They are warm, creamy and savory…what more do you need for breakfast?! The gravy is only 4 ingredients and easy to make. I keep frozen biscuits and dinner rolls around in case I want or need them without having the hassle of making it from scratch all the time. This is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket if you ever wake up wanting something different from the usual cereal and toast! Within 30 minutes you have a hot breakfast that seems it took hours to make and it can really feed a crowd!
Yields: 6-8 servings Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 16 oz. Breakfast Sausage
- 1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 3 Tbsp. Butter or Margarine
- 3 Cups Milk
- Salt and Pepper (to taste)
- 6-8 Biscuits (Frozen)
Butter the top of the frozen biscuits, place in the oven and bake according to the package directions.
*If you have store-bought biscuits or want to go all out and make homemade biscuits…by all means go all out! Frozen is just easier and faster to do early in the morning for me!
In a medium sized pot, brown the breakfast sausage on medium heat.
Once browned add the butter and combine.
*It WILL seem like there is a lot of grease before you even add the butter, it’s okay to keep it…it will help when the time comes to make the roux. But if you’re not wanting that much grease feel free to remove a couple of tablespoons of the sausage’s grease, then add the butter.
Add flour to make the roux, cook for about 3 minutes or so.
The roux should have a buttery golden color.
Lower the heat to medium-low.
While stirring, slowly pour the milk.
Simmer and occasionally stir, approximately 5-7 minutes until thickened.
Add salt and pepper to taste. (I added about 1/4 -1/2 tsp of each).
*A great tip to know if any gravy is ready, use a spoon or cooking utensil like a wooden spoon and swipe it down the middle. If the gravy stays in place like this picture, it’s ready! If it runs down or it’s too watery, keep it for another 5 minutes.
The gravy should be thick and creamy and the biscuits should be golden brown.
Open the biscuit in half and spoon the gravy over the biscuits, eat while warm!
