Who doesn't like the classic comfort food biscuits and gravy? While Adam loves it, I actually thought I hated it. It reminded me too much of chicken and dumplings, which I find way too soggy for my taste. However, this morning, we decided to make some for brunch. We were both quite happy with how they turned out. :) The biscuits are fluffy and tall, even though they are half whole wheat. They are filling and delicious. The gravy isn't too thick or too thin. It has a very pleasant savory sausage taste.
Biscuits: (makes 10-12)
(modified slightly from here)
3/4 t. salt
1/4 c. softened butter (use the real stuff, not margarine)
1 c. buttermilk (1 T. vinegar poured into a liquid measuring cup. Fill the rest with milk and mix. Let rest for 5 minutes or so.)
Gravy: (makes 3+ cups)
1 package McCormick Sausage Flavor Country Gravy
5 pre-cooked sausage links (we used Banquet Brown and Serve)
2 c. milk (we used 2%)
1 c. water
1 T. Real Bacon Bits (optional)
1. Heat sausage in the microwave for 15 seconds so that it is warm enough to cut easily. Dice into small pieces.
2. Stir all ingredients together and bring to boil while stirring.
3. Set aside and gravy will thicken.
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. grated cheese
Mix together in bowl. Cook on stove. Good job.
Cut biscuits in half, top with gravy, then eggs.
Or, if you'd rather have the gravy on the side, pour into a small container and dip your biscuits and eggs.
