Biscuits and Sausage Gravy



I had never had Biscuits and Sausage Gravy until a few years ago. My son had gone to Disneyland with his school band and had some on one of their meal stops. He couldn’t stop talking about this so I decided to look up a recipe and make it for him at home. Everyone here at home enjoyed it.

Since the biscuit dough doesn’t use yeast I was actually able to roll it out.

These biscuits look so pretty when they puff up!

Put the Biscuits and Sausage Gravy and it is a match made in heaven!

Makes my mouth water!

Basic Biscuits and Easy Sausage Gravy

Biscuits-makes 8-1 2 biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening with fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Pour milk into flour mixture while stirring with a fork. Mix in milk until dough is soft, moist and pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and toss with flour until no longer sticky. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick sheet and cut with a floured biscuit or cookie cutter. Press together unused dough and repeat rolling and cutting procedure.
  5. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheets and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Sausage Gravy


  • 1  1 lb. package  pork sausage

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1.  Cook sausage in large skillet over medium heat  until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Stir in flour. Gradually add milk; cook until mixture comes to a boil and thickens, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Split biscuits in half. Place 2 halves on each of 8 plates; top with about 1/3 cup gravy.

I added about  1 tablespoon of dried sage to my gravy mixture to give it a little punch. I don’t know if this is supposed to be strictly a breakfast meal but I have also served it for lunch and dinner.

  1. Guess you don’t live anywhere near the south. This is a staple of nearly every restaurant that serves “Home Style” food. My husband loves this stuff. Me, not so much. I don’t like biscuits. Great post. It was fun to read about the joy you had from this experience.
