Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

It has been a while since I have shared a good brunch recipe with you guys!

And truly – what would my life be without brunch? It is my favorite meal ever!

Truth – biscuits and gravy are a super heavy breakfast dish. But, if you are in the mood to treat yourself, why not? Since they are so notoriously heavy I especially like to bust these out for my hubby’s birthday or on Father’s Day morning, but with fall on the horizon I have them on the mind and may find an excuse to make them soon regardless 🙂

Anyways…

I feel like people perpetually think baked goods are so much effort, but in reality they are quite the opposite! Biscuits are especially easy, since they turn out best with minimal handling. The less you mess with the dough, the better the result! Ideally you would make your biscuit dough in your food processor with nice cold butter just out of the fridge.

This recipe is best when served over hot fresh biscuits! What I do is toss the biscuits in the oven then get started on my gravy. By the time you pull them you of the oven you will be finishing your gravy and should be able to serve it all fresh off the press. YUM!

BISCUITS

Ingredients:

  • 2C All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4t Salt
  • 3t Baking Powder
  • 1t Baking Soda
  • 5T Cold Butter (diced/cubed)
  • 7/8C Buttermilk (use plain yogurt in place of buttermilk if you don’t have any on-hand)

Preheat your oven to 450 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine all your dry ingredients and the butter in your food processor. Pulse several times, enough that it combines into a grainy/crumb-like mixture. It will be lumpy and uneven. Do not over mix!

Stir in the buttermilk and form a ball. Pour out onto a floured surface and press into a disk, about 3/4 of an inch thick. Be sure to flour your hands and the surface to prevent sticking.

Using a 2-inch round biscuit cutter (or a glass if you don’t have one) cut your biscuits and place them on a baking sheet. Continue to reshape the dough and cut into biscuits until all has been used.

Bake for 7-9 minutes until golden brown around the edges. Serve ASAP, but they can be reheated and served again for a day or two.

GRAVY

Take me down to gravy town!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Pork Breakfast Sausage
  • 1/3 C Flour
  • 3 to 4 C Whole Milk
  • 1/2t Salt
  • 1/4t Thyme
  • 1/4t Oregano
  • 1/2t Ground Pepper
  • 1t Garlic Powder

In a medium skillet, brown your sausage, crumbling as you go. Once your sausage is cooked, lower the heat to medium/low and sprinkle with 1/2 your flour. Stir to coat your sausage. Slowly sprinkle on the rest while stirring the whole time.

Pour the milk in and stir to combine. I like using a silicone whisk to stir well without scratching my pan. Cook the gravy and stir regularly as it thickens. Turn the heat off when desired consistency is reached. Dust with herbs, stir and serve immediately!

Of course, ours are served smothered in gravy with a nice fresh runny egg on top!
