Happy “eat all the carbs and don’t apologize for it” month! I LOVE breakfast. It’s one of my favorite foods to eat and to cook! If I’m ever in a bind on what to cook for dinner, I go for breakfast. I mean, who doesn’t have a pack of bacon in their fridge at any given moment?
September is breakfast and biscuit month! I’ve whipped up an amazing gravy to go on a super easy biscuit recipe. I’ve made a lot of mistakes when it comes to making biscuits, but this biscuit recipe never fails me! I will say that I do not grate the butter. I dice it up really small with a knife and then break it up in the flour with my fingers. I tend to follow the rest of the recipe to a “T”, and they turn out great!
Slather those babies with this decadent gravy, get on the couch (cause you’re already in your comfy pants), turn on Netflix, and have a fantastic Saturday morning. That my friends, is self-care. Enjoy!
1 lb. of breakfast sausage
2 Tbsp. butter
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
½ tsp salt
½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper
¼ cup heavy cream.
In a large skillet, crumble and brown sausage, on medium heat. DO NOT DRAIN GREASE. Once sausage is browned add butter and melt. Add flour and stir, coating sausage. Cook for approx. 3 minutes. Slowly add 1 cup of milk and stir until mixture starts to thicken. Reduce heat to low and add additional cup of milk. Season with salt and pepper and let simmer for 5 minutes. Finish gravy by stirring in heavy cream. Serve over warm biscuits immediately.
