Sausage Gravy & Biscuits

I think Biscuits & Gravy is one of the most comforting of comfort foods. It’s one of the first dishes I started making for breakfast, and even dinner, when first learning to cook. Even when making biscuits from scratch, it’s a meal that comes together quickly. Using simple ingredients, to boot. That seems to be a common thread among my favorite comfort foods.

I always make this for breakfast on those Sunday mornings when the last thing I feel like doing is making breakfast, due to one too many margaritas the night before. And it always makes things right with the world, and my stomach. In the past, I always used canned biscuits, and there’s no shame in that. But, if you have a little bit of time – try making them from scratch. This is a fabulous recipe that I’ve made time and time again, and they always turn out perfect. And, you’ll be beaming with pride – I promise!

I wish I could have made these for Jon this morning for breakfast. With the 49ers loss, he could have used this kind of breakfast to start his day. This one is sure to lift a man’s spirits. But, it was a great game and I say we should still hold up our heads high. Next year, boys! Hopefully a nice steak dinner tonight will help to ease his pain. Now, to see Maryland get painted purple. Congrats to the family in Baltimore!

    Jimmy is a pro at Biscuits and Sausage gravy but uses Bisquick. I have to share this with him. I tried Jimmy to take a vacation day but he had to go in. Super Bowl game is not a good day to take off. Ha. They think you can’t stay up until midnight and make it to work. Hope you enjoyed your breakfast.

    Bummer about the game last night – talk about an exciting finish, though!

    Sorry the game didn’t turn out as you’d hoped. I was really hoping they’d pull it out at the last minute…

    Would you believe I’ve never had sausage gravy and biscuits?? I really need to remedy that soon – this looks seriously amazing.

    This is my most favorite breakfast item in the entire world. I get it every time we go out for breakfast. But I think that making it at home, with buttery, fluffy biscuits from scratch, is even better! Your version is right up my alley! 🙂

    I love biscuits and gravy, hands down favorite breakfast, and I have to say that your sausage-heavy gravy looks PERFECT! I will have to try your sausage to gravy ratio, because yours looks nice and hearty. I also have to give your props for your food styling… biscuits and gravy is a hard dish to photograph, but you made it look stylish!
