Sausage Gravy is very simple to prepare and tastes amazing. Weather a cool morning or a dinner after a days hard work, its always enjoyed. With this simple recipe even the newest of cooks can pull it off.
In a large skillet I prefer cast-iron but any will do fry up 1lb of ground sausage. Cook it till it is super crispy not burnt but crispy.
Once all crispy add 1/4 cup of all purpose flour and stir it in.
Add in 2 1/2 cups of milk, bring to a boil over medium heat, then bring down to a low simmer. Make sure to stir often so gravy doesn't burn to the bottom.
Add salt and pepper about 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2-1 tsp of pepper depending on the taste you like.
Now the biscuits are simple don't be scared its easier than you think, but you will need a pastry cutter to make it super simple. You can make without just use two butter knives instead just takes a little longer.
Preheat oven to 425 Fahrenheit
In a large bowl put in 2 cups all-purpose flour, 5tbsp of butter, 1tbsp baking powder, 1/2tsp salt, 1tbsp sugar. Using your pastry cutter cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly.
Then add 3/4 cups milk and mix well kneed your dough on a floured surface a few times don't over work it. roll out your dough to about 1 inch thick. If you have a biscuit cutter use it to cut out the dough if not use a glass drinking glass flour the rim and cut.
Place the cut biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet or in a cast-iron skillet bake for about 15 minutes.
