Sausage, Biscuits and Gravy (a staple, where I come from)

Sausage, biscuits and gravy for breakfast are such a comfort food in this house. My mom makes them almost every single time we are in town, simply because of how much my husband loves it! We recently started making them ourselves, mainly because it seemed so intimidating to me. I’m not sure why, but it did. Once I got the recipe from my mom and realized how simple it was, it was all downhill from there. 😉

SAUSAGE GRAVY:

1 lb sausage (your choice, can be spicy, sweet, mild – cook’s choice here!)

milk (no measuring, sorry…again, it’s up to the cook as to the consistency desired)

flour (I know, I know..what’s with not having any measurements? I’m so sorry!!! We just tend to not measure that much when we cook. Baking is a whole ‘nother story, but cooking? We eyeball it all, almost. I would guess you would use a tablespoon or two?)

Seasonings of choice (salt, pepper, onion, garlic, maple seasoning – again, you choose!)

Brown the sausage, adding the desired seasonings. Once the sausage is browned, turn the heat down and sprinkle the flour on top, stirring the meat almost constantly. Pour milk into the mixture until you have a consistency you want. If the gravy is too runny, add a little more flour. If it’s too dry, add more milk. Once it’s the consistency you want, you can simmer on the stove for a few, or serve immediately. Just make sure that the gravy is a little more on the runny side if you are simmering for a few, as it will thicken as it simmers. 🙂

BISCUITS:

2 cups biscuit mix

2/3 cup milk (or water, but milk makes it taste better and adds something to the texture, in my opinion)

Mix together and bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

*The Amish Cooking cookbook has hundreds (maybe thousands? I haven’t counted and don’t plan on it..) of recipes and no names were listed as to whom to give credit to for the actual individual recipes. Therefore, I can not give credit to the proper person for the above Biscuit recipe!
