Sausage gravy or hamburger gravy is real good on mashed potatos also. I make both foe my deer hunters and that really fills them up. I make the gravy using the white sauce also. Thanks for the hot sauce idea Rain.

Talking mamas biscuits and gravy

lb of spicy bob evans sausage
1 can of campbells cream of mushroom
1 vidalia onion chopped
cornstarch and 1/2 and 1/2
milk

salt and pepper
grands large biscuits

anyways u brown sausage and onion add 1/2 stick of butter let melt add mixture of milk and cornstarch in large 20 oz cup then slowly pour into pan ... it will start to thicken add can of mushroom soup and keep stirring.. remember cornstarch is 1/2 of what u would use for flour so about 3 tablespoons of cornstarch to the milk.. add half and half if it still needs more liquid . this is heart attack on a plate and meant for occasional use lol... we like breakfast for dinner alot and it also freezes well can be warmed up in microwave with left over biscuits good as day one.
good luck

I think a bold gravy like that is just begging for a sprinkling of chilli pepper flakes or a dash of something tangy or hot!

Humm Brooksy ... I thought I taught you how to use the "Search" feature here?

You call a cookie a biscuit - and I had a scone and thought to myself .. humm ... a cold biscuit!

This is a good thread for a basic discussion and recipes for All-American Buttermilk Biscuits.

So do the Brits and the Irish, Brooksy...but I can't bring myself to do it (at least at home). To me a cookie is a dessert/sweet snack and a biscuit is a lovely, floury, scone-like treat to eat with meals

Too funny. So many names for so many things. I was taught as a youngster that scones were made by taking raw bread dough, leavened with yeast, and cutting off a small chunk. then flatten it as you would a pizza crust, and pop it in hot oil. Cook to a golden brown on both sides. Searve with good strawberry freezer jam.


As for buiscuits, I use:
1 tbs. double acting baking powder
1 cup AP flour
1 tbs. sugar (or Splenda)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk

Whisk the dry ingredients together then add the milk. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness and cut out with the open end of a glass. Bake at 425 until lightly browned.

To make with buttermilk, omit the milk and use baking soda instead of baking powder.

My dd makes a really good sausage gravy (the only one I've ever liked). She uses 2 lbs of a really good sausage and then proceeds with the recipes similar here. I think the difference is it is a meatier gravy. I'd never had it until a few years ago. I'd seen what was called "sawmill gravy" which looked like a white sauce with a bit of sausage inside. She drains all grease from hers and the flour sticks to the sausage. It doesn't taste greasy at all. I have a real problem with grease and it suits me well.

You can sub this out for the meat sausage, if you're into the 'healthy' aspect - it's a great product, and veggie hub and son love it!
