I’m getting excited to decorate my kitchen and thought I’d start with this;) I love making biscuits and gravy so it fits. Here’s my granny’s old recipe that I often make today. Unfortunately, it’s done with a pinch of this and a pinch of that. But you can take short-cuts and I’ll include the easy version here…
1 pound sausage (Jimmy Dean is our favorite)
Dried sage, salt, fresh ground pepper, cayenne, flour, milk, butter
Frozen Pillsbury Biscuits
In cast-iron skillet, brown sausage in a bit of butter (yes, butter. Somebody put Jimmy Dean sausage on a diet and it’s too lean nowadays). Add pinch of sage. Then add a couple of tablespoons of flour and pepper and mix well. Gradually add 2 cups milk. Turn to simmer and let thicken, stirring occasionally. Add salt and more pepper or even a pinch of cayenne to taste.
Bake biscuits (I know it’s a terrible thing to use store-bought biscuits but does anybody make homemade biscuits anymore besides me)!? Besides, Pillsbury makes a good biscuit as well as a pie crust in a pinch.
Anyway, when gravy is bubbly and thickened, slather on freshly baked biscuits. Eggs and fried green tomatoes can be served alongside.
