Usually being a little Italian pasta girl I’m always looking for different ways to combine foods with that delectable carb. and so far I think I’ve got it down pretty well… But I do have lots of other carb. loves and so many years ago when I lived down south in North Carolina I truly did fall in love with one of their notable dishes, biscuits & gravy, I don’t get it much but when I get a chance, if I see it on a menu, I will order it just to see if it’s still as wonderful as I remember😁 So the other day when I came across this Pillsbury Biscuit recipe I just had to try it!!! Needless to say it didn’t disappoint me, we ate it with fruit and eggs for breakfast one morning and even with a salad for Dinner one night. It’s just a plain and simple southern comfort food. It sparked a wonderful conversation about our young adult life starting out, old friends and all the fun we had! I truly wish all of you such lovely memories from your kitchen too❤️ Enjoy!
2 cans of Pillsbury Honey Grand’s Biscuits
1 pound of breakfast sausage
2 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of flour
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups of milk (might need more if gravy is too thick)
Cut your biscuits into 4 quarters
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a 9×13 pan with non stick spray.
Lay the biscuits on the bottom of the pan. Do not smash them together, Just sprinkle them around the whole bottom of the pan.
In a lg. skillet brown the sausage and drain off the grease once finished.
Now take browned sausage and pour it over the biscuits leaving out about 1/4 of the sausage in the pan for your gravy.
Place the casserole dish in the oven and cook for 30 minutes, until biscuits are cooked through and lightly browned.
Right before the biscuits are done, return the skillet, with the sm. amts of sausage in it, to the stove and add in the 2 tablespoons of butter. Over medium heat melt the butter then add in the flour and stir constantly allowing it to cook for a few extra seconds. Adding in the garlic powder, salt and pepper a little at a time as you stir.
Now slowly pour in the 2 cups of milk and whisk constantly combining the flour mixture with the milk till smooth.
Heat to a small slow boil stirring constantly, allowing the gravy to thicken. Add more milk if you need the gravy to be thinner, or allow it to cook a little longer, stirring constantly, if you need it to be thicker.
Taste the gravy and add more salt & pepper if needed till it’s to your liking.
Pour your hot homemade gravy over the warm Biscuit casserole and serve for breakfast with eggs, even for lunch or dinner with a salad. Its scrumptious!!
