Recipe: Biscuits and Gravy

Standard

I’m not a morning person, I’ll admit it. Usually a good breakfast is what I need to help me start my day, but I am also lazy in the morning, so I don’t want to flex my kitchen muscles or my credit card too much. So what’s a gal to do? Though some trial and error, I’ve come to enjoy eating and making this simple delicious gravy over store-bought biscuits and fluffy scrambled eggs. It’s simple and cheap and always a good idea to have at least one gravy in your repertoire.

Ingredients
1 can biscuits [$3]
Eggs [$2]
1 package breakfast sausage links [$3]
Milk or half and half [$3]
Chicken stock [$2]
Ap flour, which I had in my pantry

Directions

Bake biscuits according to the package directions.
Dice sausage links and place into a skillet with butter. Just a note: I know you can buy breakfast sausage already crumbled, but I like the taste and texture when I dice the sausage by myself. Personal preference.
I digress, apologies.
When the sausage has browned, sprinkle some flour on top and let it cook until its a slightly nutty color. It will add more flavor. Add about a cup of broth and let gravy thicken, then add another cup of milk, salt and pepper, and I like to throw some dried tarragon I’m as well. You can use any herb you have, dried or fresh. Your call.
When the biscuits are ready, spoon the gravy over them and serve with eggs, if desired.

This is literally my favorite dish to make instead of going out to brunch. All I need now is a Bloody Mary.
