Breakfast is taken very seriously in our house.
The hubby and I never miss one, even when the mornings are super busy.
Plus, it’s always my favorite meal to make.
Probably because I’m a morning person, please don’t hate me.
It had been such an amazing week, I decided to make something new for Sunday morning.
The husband is very good about eating healthy when I’m cooking…
But it’s really fun to see his face when I surprise him with a “hungry man” breakfast.
I grabbed some giant, flaky biscuits at the grocery store when I was there on Saturday.
Not sure what to do with them, then it hit me – Biscuits & Gravy.
If y’all thought, I made the biscuits, I love your confidence, but no…I bought them.
Biscuits & Gravy is one of my father’s favorite breakfast foods.
I’ve seen it a thousand times, but I’ve never made it.
It seemed easy enough – milk, flour, pepper, salt and sausage.
Y’all know by now, I don’t eat sausage/pork/beef.
So, the hubby had to help me taste the gravy, as I cooked.
Trust me, this is one time he didn’t mind helping me out in the kitchen.
- 1 pound sausage
- 2 cups 2% milk (whole is good too)
- ¼ cup whole wheat flour
- salt and lots of pepper to taste
- Cook sausage in skillet.
- Add flour and mix, cook for about a minute.
- Add 2 cups milk.
- Whisk while gravy thickens and bubbles.
- Add salt and pepper and continue to taste until perfect.
- Let stand a minute or so to thicken and serve over some biscuits.
