Biscuits and Gravy for SupperNovember 21, 2013 at 8:33 am | Posted in Biscuits, Breakfast, Gravy, Main Dish, One-Dish Meal, Ron's Own Creation, Supper | 1 Comment
This is last night’s supper. I’m about a day behind, but oh well! Biscuits and gravy are usually hubby’s specialty but with him not quite 100% himself, I decided to toss them together last night.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (according to biscuit package)
One tube of Pillsbury Grands! Buttermilk Biscuits
One pound of Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Sausage
Flour – I don’t measure this!
Milk – I don’t measure this, either
Salt and Pepper, to taste
In a 12-inch skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat; keep breaking up the meat.
Notice that I use a potato smasher to break up the meat; my husband tried this once, and it works really great if you don’t want huge pieces of sausage.Once the sausage is completely browned, you can begin adding flour. I don’t measure and neither does Ron. Just add flour until all of the meat is covered…coated with flour.Put the biscuits in the hot oven and set the timer (13-17 minutes).Turn heat up a bit, to medium-high and keep stirring and let the flour brown. My husband tells me that when the flour and meat seem to be brown enough, they’re not quite ready, and to keep stirring and cooking for a few minutes more.
Slowly pour in milk. Again, I don’t measure the milk. I typically pour in enough to cover the sausage, and then some….see below:Now you must turn the heat up to high – and KEEP STIRRING! Milk will curdle quickly but you have to let it boil, otherwise you won’t get the thick gravy. It should take about 10 minutes to reach a nice low boil. Remember to keep stirring 🙂
By now, the biscuits are ready, so plate them. When the gravy is thick enough, pour into serving bowl and bring to the table with the biscuits.Split biscuits and pour gravy over them. I only ate one, hubby ate two and I won’t tell how many the teen boy ate…he is a growing teenager and he definitely filled up last night!The only thing missing last night – according to the teen – was orange juice. I forgot to purchase some on my race to the grocery store the other day 😦
