Biscuits and Gravy for Father’s Day
Sometimes a simple homemade meal speaks more than the most expensive gift.
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons butter cubed
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425. Mix all dry ingredients together. Using your fingers rub the butter in until the mixture looks like bread crumbs. Add the milk and mix until a dough forms. On a floured surface place dough and shape into a rectangle and fold into thirds. Roll the dough out to 3/4 inch thickness and using a floured cutter cut out shapes. If you prefer you can roll out the dough into a rectangle and using a knife cut into equal size square/diamonds. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or lightly browned.
1 lb beef sausage, or your preferred sausage
3 cups of milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
Brown the sausage in a pan over medium-high heat, breaking the sausage into little pieces. Once the meat is no longer pink sprinkle half the flour and stir allowing the sausage and juices to soak up the flour. Gradually add in the rest of flour allowing all to be incorporated. Pour the milk in while stirring constantly. Allow to cook until it thickens, about 10 minutes. If too thick add 1/4 cup of milk at a time until desired thickness. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour hot gravy over warm biscuits for a great meal!
