After our fantastic breakfast at C&T's house last Sunday I promised SP I would make biscuits with sausage gravy for breakfast this weekend. On Sunday morning, while my darling husband was at the grocery store, I made the gravy, baked the biscuits and scrambled some eggs:
I used bake-off biscuits instead of making my own, but I have a feeling those biscuits SP was making earlier this year would be fantastic with this meal. The gravy is very simple - cook one of those tubes of breakfast sausage, breaking it into small pieces, until browned. Season with a little salt, pepper, dried (or fresh, if you have it) sage and thyme. Add 2 tablespoons of flour to the sausage and stir for about a minute. Add two cups of milk and cook until thickened. Since SP wasn't home yet I turned off the heat and let it sit so the flavors could combine. Once he got home I added a little more milk and turned the heat on low so it could reheat and thin out a bit. Such a fantastic, easy breakfast meal. Of course we won't be eating this again for awhile, but man was it good!
