I think it’s a requirement when you live in the south to have a biscuit and gravy recipe. A true southern wife would have made biscuits from scratch. I can and I have before, but this weekend I just didn’t have the time. I used refrigerated biscuits this time but most times I use frozen biscuits. It’s a good idea to have a big bag of biscuits in the freezer that you can pull out to use at a moment’s notice. You never know when you might have a biscuit emergency. Just joking. I take my biscuits very seriously.

This recipe is seriously easy. My mom sent this to me years ago and my husband loves when I make it for breakfast. So here you go, give it a try, you will like it so much more than pre-made gravy or the dried gravy packet.


  1. 6-8 biscuits
  2. 1 lb. breakfast sausage
  3. 2-3 tbsp all purpose flour
  4. 3-4 cups whole milk
  5. 1/4 tsp. pepper


  1. Put the biscuits in a preheated oven, bake according to package directions
  2. Brown the sausage over medium heat and crumble
  3. Coat the sausage with flour
  4. Add enough milk to almost cover the sausage
  5. Turn the heat down to low-medium and let the mixture simmer until it becomes thick, add pepper to taste, stir occasionally
  6. Slice the biscuits in half and cover with the gravy mixture

I hope you try this recipe and let me know how it turned out by leaving a comment below.
