A traditional southern breakfast that warms you from the inside out!
Sausage gravy biscuits are synonymous with the south...almost anyone you meet has enjoyed the dish at least once (often on a weekly basis!). The meal originated because it was cheap and substantial, perfect for the long hours of work spent on farms in what used to be a mostly agrarian culture.

  • How to cook a biscuits and gravy dish. Southern Sausage Gravy Biscuits - Step 1
    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Remove the butter from the freezer, and grate it into the mixture on a box grater (this allows for a uniform consistency throughout the dough). Stir with a fork until thoroughly mixed.

  • Step 2

    Beat the egg with the milk, then stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened.
