Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Give your family that fuzzy warm feeling with this easy to make comfort food.

You’ll need:

4 qt saucepan


Cookie sheet 

Griddle or skillet



1/2 lb of breakfast sausage (we make our own. See recipe at the end.)

1 Pkg. Pepper gravy mix ( we use Pioneer)

1 tube of Biscuits (We use the cheapies at Aldi’s)

Preheat griddle to 350 degrees.  Spread sausage on griddle, break into small pieces with spatula.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place biscuits on cookie sheet and bake for 11 to 15 minutes.  While the biscuits are baking , follow the directions on the Pepper gravy mix.  Pioneer directions are: Boil 1 ½ cups of water. (check the sausage) In a 2 cup measuring cup mix ½ cup water with pepper gravy mix.  When water boils, whisk in the pepper gravy mix.  This will thicken quickly.  Remove from heat.  Check your sausage again.  Turn off griddle or skillet if all sausage is brown.  Throw sausage into strainer to drain grease.  Check biscuits, when golden brown on edges, biscuits are done, turn off oven.  Put sausage in saucepan with gravy.  Mix thoroughly.  Voila!

Makes 4 servings, 2 biscuits each.  We halve our biscuits then pour gravy on top.  This is one of those comfort foods that we fix when the cold makes us want to stay inside.
