Ultimate Biscuits & Gravy

(4 servings)

  • For the biscuit sandwiches:
  • 1 package of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (Pillsbury or other -in a tube)
  • 4 breakfast sausage patties
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese

  • For the sausage gravy:
  • One 12-ounce tube pork sausage
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • freshly ground black pepper-to taste
For the sausage & egg biscuit sandwiches:

Bake the biscuits as directed on the package. Split the biscuits in half and set aside.

In a saute pan, cook the sausage patties. Remove from the pan and place on bottom half of each biscuit.

Add butter to the sasauge fat and melt. Crack the eggs into the pan and cook to desired doneness. Top the sausage with a slice of cheese and then top with fried eggs. Place the other half of each biscuit on top of the eggs and set aside while making gravy.

For the gravy:

Add the tube of sausage to the skillet, break it up with a wooden spoon, and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a bowl, leaving the rendered fat in the skillet.

Whisk the flour into the fat and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. While whisking, pour the milk into the skillet and bring the gravy to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Stir in the sausage and season with pepper.

Smother the sausage and egg sandwiches with some of the gravy and serve immediately.

A heavy breakfast - but delicious! This recipe is fairly easy since it uses refrigerated biscuits.
