Biscuits and Gravy...

Do you see the pattern here? I have been making breakfast dishes for the past few days. This morning while I was enjoying my first cup of coffee, I peeked through some of my favorite blogs... One that caught my eye was about great biscuit fraud Kate is HILARIOUS, she had me laughing out laud before I finished my coffee, which is pretty difficult to do given that I was only half awake at that time. I've never contemplated the biscuit greatness before, but thought that my recipe is pretty good, but again I am biased here. I decided to make biscuits and gravy for dinner tonight. I needed a quick recipe so I chose the cream biscuits. They are very quick and easy, and of course mighty tasty. Now, this is my variation on biscuits and gravy.


2 cups of AP Flour
2 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 tsp. of salt
2 tsp of sugar
1 1/2 cup of heavy cream

Sift the dry ingredients together, add cream and stir till just combined. Turn it out on the floured surface and knead for 30 seconds. Pat it into 1 1/2 inch thick disc and cut the biscits out, making sure not to twist the cutter. Bake in 450'F for 15-17 minutes.


1/2 medium onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 lb of sausage out of casings ( I used mild italian sausage)
2 TBSP of flour
2 cups of milk
saly & pepper to taste
couple of shakes of hot sauce

Brown sausage in the skillet, add onion and garlic and sautee till translucent. Sprinkle with flour and cook for couple of minutes, add milk and bring it to boil. Season to taste with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Gravy is ready when it thickens.
