This is not a health food recipe, but it’s really delicious. I’ve tried making flaky biscuits healthier in the past, but the texture really suffers. If you wanted to be a little healthier, you could eat the sausage gravy on toast instead. It is very good if you don’t feel like making biscuits.
Preheat the oven to 450. Mix all together in a bowl:
3 c. flour
4 t. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1 t. salt
Cut in until you have little crumbles:
3/4 c. butter
Make a well, and add
1 c. milk
Stir until well-mixed. Roll out on lightly-floured surface and fold the dough over 3 times. Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter (or a cup if you’re like me and don’t have a biscuit cutter!) Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes or until golden. I like to make small biscuits, so I get 16 of them.
While the biscuits are baking, make the gravy. Cook until browned:
1 lb. ground sausage
While the sausage is browning, whisk together gradually in a bowl:
1/4 c. flour
3 c. milk
Stir the mixture into the cooked sausage until it thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste. I like lots of pepper! Serve over biscuits.
1 serving is 2 biscuits with 1/2 c. gravy.
