Happy New Year, everyone!
My husband’s sister is visiting us from California this week for a belated Christmas trip, so I wanted to cook something special for breakfast. One of her favorite breakfast dishes (and my husband also LOVES it) is Biscuits and Gravy. So this is my super easy, foolproof Biscuits and Gravy recipe! It took under 20 minutes to make when using canned biscuits.
If you’ve never made this before, don’t worry! Biscuits and gravy is a super easy recipe to make. Honestly, even a beginner can do it. It’s so warming and filling, and the perfect way to start anyone’s morning. For the gravy, all you need are some Italian sausages (or your favorite uncooked breakfast sausage), some flour, and milk. You can use your favorite brand of biscuits (make them from scratch yourself), but in our busy family, I do what’s easiest. I used the refrigerated Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Biscuits (16.3 oz / 8 biscuits in a can). They baked in the oven for 13-16 minutes, about the same time it takes to make the gravy.
Enjoy and Happy Eating!
Easy Biscuits and Gravy
- 1 can of Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits (16.3oz / 8 count)
- 1 lb of Italian Sausage (Salsiccia)
- 1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour
- 3 cups Milk
- Salt (optional)
- Fresh Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
- Cook the biscuits according to package instructions.
Remove the casing on the sausage. In a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, add the sausages.
- Using your spatula, break up the sausages into bite-sized pieces. Cook until the sausages are brown and cooked. Fat will be released as the sausages cook. DO NOT DRAIN the fat.
- Sprinkle the flour on top of the crumbled sausage and fat drippings. Stir to mix. Add the flour a little at a time. Keep stirring until the flour is completely mixed with the sausage.
- Add milk and stir constantly. Cook until the mixture thickens.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low and keep stirring until the gravy thickens to your liking. It took 3-4 minutes to thicken to our family’s preference.
- Add ground black pepper to taste. Serve over warmed biscuits and enjoy.
- If the sausage gravy is too thick at the end, add more milk to thin it out.
- The sausage adds a lot of salty flavor to the gravy. However, if you like your gravy saltier, add salt at the end.
