Biscuits and Gravy

This recipe is another great one from my friends blog . You should definately check her blog out! I made this for dinner the other night because I was in the mood for something simple and fast. This was simple and fast and was very delicious! I served the gravy over mashed potatoes and had the biscuits as a side to dip into the gravy!

What you need:


2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 tsp. melted butter


1 pound sausage (I used Jimmy Dean, they have a couple of different flavors that I think would taste great in a gravy)
2 tbs. butter
6 tbs. flour
3.5 cups milk
Salt and ground pepper to taste

In a bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Combine milk and butter and incorporate into dry ingredients until blended. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Meanwhile brown the sausage in a medium sauce pan over medium heat until there is no pink left. Add the butter and stir until melted. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and gradually add the milk. Stir over medium heat until you reach desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over warm biscuits!
