Sunday Morning Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

tastythumb.files.wordpress.com  until I get my own photo!

A family favorite since my friend taught me how to make it almost 25 years ago

Here's the simple recipe

Preheat oven to 400* or to specifications on the recipe for the biscuits you would like to prepare

For the gravy you will need:

1  1lb package Breakfast sausage
   ( I like Jimmy Dean,  or Tennessee Pride original the best)
Seasoning salt
Pepper to taste

For the biscuits you will need:

1 tube of biscuits ...big homestyle buscits from pillsbury ( the ones in the tube) and bake them for 8-10 minutes while the gravy is thickening.
 You may also make your own from bisquick or your favorite recipe.  I find the pillsbury are just as good.

I brown the breakfast sausage in a large saute pan on medium heat.  Once browned, sprinkle the meat with flour.
  ( I use about 1/4 cup of flour)  and swizzle around the pan for about 2 minutes for the flour to absorb the flavor from the sausage.

When the sausage is coated with the flour, begin adding the milk to cover the meat.  Stir until the mixture thickens. Sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper to taste. Stiring occasionally.

While the gravy is thickening, pop the biscuits into the oven and bake as recommended on the package, usually 8-10 minutes.

Continue to stir the gravy.  It will thicken over time and become even thicker when it is removed from the heat.

Remove the biscuits from the oven and split.

Place the split biscuits on a plate and spoon sausage gravy over top as desired

This recipe will feed 4 hungry adults at 2 biscuits each.
