Biscuits with Sausage Gravy

Southern-style biscuits with sausage gravy is a wonderful, comforting breakfast that my boys just devour. Shhh, don’t tell them that biscuits with sausage gravy is a pretty easy recipe to make! The star of this recipe is the gravy: the thick, creamy gravy warms your throat and soothes your belly.

I cook the refrigerated biscuits in the toaster oven*. I LOVE my toaster oven, in fact it’s one of the top kitchen gadgets I recommend. It heats up quickly, cooks up the biscuits to be browned on top and fluffy throughout and doesn’t set off my temperamental fire alarm like the big oven does EVERY. TIME. I. COOK! 

I cook the gravy in a separate saucepan (I have this set*) as I am trying not to eat as much meat to help ease my Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms. My boys prefer more gravy and less sausage so I keep the sausage separate so I can use later in the week in a Western scramble or on homemade pizza.

You certainly can sprinkle the baking mix (or flour) directly on top of sausage and add milk to the same skillet for a one-pan gravy if you want easy cleanup or your family enjoys a meaty gravy. Sometimes, I don’t even put the sausage and instead scramble some eggs to put on top of the biscuit and then smother with gravy. Really, you can’t go wrong with this simple delicious gravy.
