Perfect Biscuits & Gravy

I used to hate biscuits and I used to hate sausage gravy–now I love both, and especially when put together! Am I happy about my expanded pallet (and yes, I consider B&G an expanded pallet for me :))? Anyway, am I happy about it? Yes and no–no, because my jeans won’t zip after multiple B&G breakfasts over break, but yes, because they are so good. And let’s be honest, you’re not reading this recipe post to hear about how fit and healthy I am.

This recipe is perfect–I don’t claim that too often, but honestly this basic recipe is all you need from now on when making B&G.

Biscuits & Gravy

Serving Size: 6-8 people


Gravy –

1 lb sausage (I’ve used both mild and hot pork sausage and both work well)

1/3 cup flour

3 cups half and half

1 tsp salt (I use flaky sea salt – Maldon Sea Salt Flakes)

1 1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp – 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like it)


Biscuits –

I followed Joanna Gaine’s biscuit recipe exactly but halved the recipe – SO good…like so good

Gravy –

  1. In a large skillet, with wooden spoon, break sausage into large crumbles and brown until no longer pink
  2. Once sausage is cooked, add flour to skillet and coat sausage until no flour is visible anymore
  3. Add in half and half and mix well
  4. Add in spices and continue mixing over medium heat until mixture reaches desired thickness (mine normally takes between 5-10 minutes to thicken up!)
  5. Serve immediately over biscuits or reduce heat to very low and stir occasionally until serving
