Biscuits and Gravy
½ pound pork breakfast sausage (bulk)
2 tablespoons chopped yellow onions
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups hot milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 batch of biscuits
|I cheated and used biscuits from a can. But they were really good biscuits from a can!|
The dish is made in a frying pan. Heat the pan and fry the sausage and onion until the sausage is brown and the onion clear.
|Gotta make sure that your sausage doesn't clump. Mine tried to be really cohesive so I spent the entire time it was frying cutting it up into smaller pieces.|
Drain off all grease except for 2 tablespoons. Stir in the flour and cook for just a minute. Add the hot milk. I heat mine in the microwave. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens and then season with salt and pepper.
|Soy milk (which was what I had on hand) proved to add a delicious element to the overall flavor (although it lost a little something in texture).|
I doubt that you will need much salt, but pepper will be a must.
Serve over warm opened biscuits.
|The ultimate decadent comfort food.|
My Rating: 4/5 "So simple, so tasty! This recipe is really all about the sausage: It'll be great with great sausage and mediocre with mediocre sausage. I used the bulk country sausage from Fresh Market and I really can't recommend it enough. The gravy was even better as leftovers once the flavors had all had a while to mingle."
