Biscuits + Gravy

Biscuits + Gravy

When I was a little girl (around eight or ten) I would always request Biscuits and Gravy for my birthday. To me, there was no meal more delicious.

Hot, homemade biscuits.

Crumbled, ready to receive some gravy goodness.

Drenched in sausage gravy. Seriously delicious.


 I have included my favorite recipes for homemade sausage, gravy, and biscuits. You could, of course, use store-bought sausage, but I find that it is often filled with MSG.

We usually double or 1.5 times the biscuit recipe. One recipe makes about 12 biscuits.

I know this recipe looks long, but it’s definitely worth it.
