Biscuits and Gravey

Because today is Logan's Birthday I made biscuits and gravey for breakfast. I've seen a lot of recipes for the gravey but this is our favorite. The recipe is quite big - that way we can have it for breakfast two mornings.


3-4 lbs. farmer sausage

1/2 large onion chopped

3/4 tsp. sage

Fry onion, sausage and sage in large pot until the sausage is done.

Add 8 tbsp. flour, mix well and fry, stirring once in awhile, on med/high heat.


6 cups of milk (I use 1%)

1.5 tsp. poultry seasoning

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

2 tsp. worchestershire sauce

1/4 - 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, depending how "hot" you want it.

Let this come to a boil over med/high heat, stirring often. If the gravey doesn't get thick enough, mix flour and liquid (from pot) in a bowl till well blended and add to pot.


In a food processor, place 2 1/4 cups flour, 4 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 cup hard margarine cut into 16 pieces. Mix.

Place in bowl and make well in center. Add 1 1/4 cups milk, mix till just blended. Place on a cutting board, flatten with hands, cut with round cutter.

Place on cookie sheet and bake at 400F for 12 minutes.Sometime I use 1/2 milk and 1/2 buttermilk just to add a different flavour to the biscuits.
