Both Rick and I have a special love for biscuits and gravy. I found/modified a recipe that we really love and would like to share with you.
For the biscuits, we use this Fluffy Biscuit recipe from Taste of Home. To me, they turn out too crumbly for an every day biscuit, but they are perfect for biscuits and gravy.
For the gravy, we use a modified version of this Super Sausage Gravy recipe from All Recipes.
1 lb. Jimmy Dean sausage (we like sage)
1/3 c. all-purpose flour
3 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain sausage, if preferred. Stir in flour until dissolved. Gradually stir in milk. You can add one more cup of milk to make more gravy. Cook gravy until thick and bubbly. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over hot biscuits. Refrigerate leftovers.
2 c. flour
4 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. shortening
2/3 c. milk
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead 20 times. Roll to 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter (or drinking glass works too!). Place on a lightly greased baking sheet (or pizza pan). Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
