Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
This biscuits and gravy recipe use buttermilk biscuits and turkey sausage for a hearty, family-favorite breakfast that is ready in just 15 minutes. Nothing says comfort like waking up to a warm plate of creamy gravy ladled over hot, steaming, biscuits for breakfast! This is one of my favorite comfort food breakfasts.
Biscuits And Gravy
You’ll find biscuits and gravy on most Southern breakfast menus. It’s hard to tell exactly when people started putting sausage gravy on their biscuits, but it was a combination that made sense. The ingredients were readily available and inexpensive.
To make sausage gravy you have to start with a good breakfast sausage. If you start with a good breakfast sausage, everything else falls into place. We use turkey sausage for this recipe.
After browning the sausage you add a bit of flour as a thickener for your gravy. All the fat you need is there from the sausage. And because it is turkey sausage, there is no need to drain the fat. Then, we add milk to our flour and sausage mixture. The milk gets added slowly, stirring as it goes in, and you’ll watch the gravy thicken in front of your eyes.
How To Make Perfect Sausage Gravy Every Time
Making gravy is a fairly simple kitchen task. Fat, thickener, and liquid come together to create a smooth sauce that is perfect for so many meals. Then, you have a decision to make. How thick do you want the gravy?
For a thicker gravy, simmer it longer. For a thinner gravy, simmer is less time. Gravy is so forgiving too. If you accidentally simmer it a bit too long and it gets too thick just add in a little more milk as you heat it, until it reaches the desired consistency.
- 1 16 oz Can of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
- 1 lb package of turkey Sausage
- ¼ cup flour
- 2 cups milk
- salt and black pepper to taste
- soy sauce for color and sodium optional
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Put biscuits 1-2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake in the oven until golden brown, about 13 to 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until thoroughly heated, about 5 to 6 minutes.
- You can use red pepper flakes and toss them in as the sausage is cooking
- Stir in flour until well combined.
- Slowly, add (room temperature) milk, stirring continuously, until the gravy thickens and comes to a boil.
- Reduce heat to med-low; simmer and stir for 2 more min.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Split biscuits in half.
- Put 2 halves on each plate; top with 1/3 cup gravy.
Make sure that you stir in the flour completely and let it cook with the sausage & grease for 1-2 min before adding the milk, this will take out any “pasty taste”.
