Wake up sleepy head! Biscuits and Gravy will get them up and out of bed!
I found this recipe on my all time favorite site (allrecipes). The recipe was posted by Bob Evans. It is a restaurant chain on the East Coast that serves incredible breakfasts. I tweaked the recipe here and there.
Biscuits and Gravy
adapted from Bob Evans recipe on allrecipes.com
- 1 lb sausage
- 2 Tbsp butter (optional)
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- salt and black pepper to taste
- 8 prepared biscuits
- 8 fried eggs
Bake biscuits (I used the Bisquick Mix and used the recipe on the box).
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and cook the sausage, crumbling the sausage as you cook it until it is no longer pink. Move the sausage to the side of the pan and tilt the pan to let the drippings flow to the other side. Add the flour and about 1/2 tsp of salt to the drippings (oh this is BAD! But I feel a tingle! I should really not be eating this, but oh it is sooo good
for you –oops tasty!) Stir the flour into the drippings and combine until there is no raw flour left. I actually added 2 Tbsp of butter to the drippings so the flour was not clumpy. Heat the milk up in the microwave. I find it combines better adding a warm liquid. Slowly add the milk to the flour mixture and whisk it into the pan. Add the sausage back in. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Bring the gravy to a boil and allow to thicken. If it becomes too thick you can thin it out with additional milk.
To serve, split a biscuit in half Top with a fried egg and ladle sausage over the egg, replace the top of the biscuit and ladle more gravy over the dish. Soon you will have all sorts of creatures (children) crawling out of the woodwork to eat breakfast (big ones too).
