Homemade Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits

Homemade Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits

My favorite food for breakfast on the weekends is grandma’s homemade biscuits and gravy. I know this meal is probably one of the unhealthiest meals that you can eat. Sometimes you just have to go out on a limb and treat your taste buds to something that you crave and for me this is one of my comfort foods.

I have tried so many variations of biscuits and gravy but I still come back to this one that I am going to share with you. Whenever we have family gatherings of all our kids, they cannot wait for me to make up a batch of homemade biscuits and a pot of homemade sausage gravy.

For my family what I like to do is make the sausage gravy the night before. This brings all the flavors together when the gravy sits overnight. The morning of breakfast I will bake the biscuits. Click here for the biscuit recipe.

Ingredients for sausage gravy

  • 16 oz. sausage, if you want a little kick to your gravy add 8 oz. of hot sausage
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ cups of flour
  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1 tsp of ground sage
  • ¼ tsp of onion powder
  • ¼ tsp of ground pepper
  • Pinch of salt


  • Brown the sausage in a frying pan on medium heat and drain off the grease.
  • Melt the butter after you drain the grease in the same pan with the sausage.
  • Add flour to the sausage and butter and stir together and let cook for two to three minutes.
  • Pour in milk over the sausage in the frying pan and let sit for a few minutes.  Then add the sage, onion, pepper and salt. Bring this mixture to a boil and then turn to low heat.
  • Continue to cook on low for another ten minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Transfer the sausage gravy to a container and cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  • In the morning after the biscuits are about done baking bring out the sausage gravy and heat on low. Only add a little cold milk if the gravy is to thick.
  • Enjoy

Grandma’s Homemade Southern Style Buttermilk Biscuits

Grandma’s Homemade Southern Style Buttermilk Biscuits

Good old-fashioned southern homemade buttermilk biscuits just like grandma use to make. I just love waking up on Sunday morning to smell the biscuit coming out of the oven. The thought of homemade sausage gravy poured over southern style fluffy buttermilk biscuits, what more could you ask for. The biscuits are about 1 -2 inches tall and light and fluffy just like grandma used to make.

Grandma’s Southern Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

Ingredients:ups of flour

1 Tbsp. of baking powder

1 Tsp of baking soda

½ Tsp of salt

½ cup of shortening

1 ¾ cups of cold buttermilk

4 Tbsp. of melted butter


  • Have the oven preheated to 425 degrees. While this is happening mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Using your fingers, mix in shortening into the flour mixture and work together till it resembles crumbs. Work the mixture pretty quickly.
  • Pour the buttermilk into the mixture and continue to mix with your hands until the dough ingredients all come together, you will know it when the dough becomes sticky.
  • Spread some flour onto the counter top. Take the dough from the bowl and lay it on the floured surface and sprinkle more flour onto the dough. Fold the dough over and over about 7 times. The top of the dough will be smooth with flour and the middle with still be sticky. But if the outside is still sticky sprinkle some more flour on the sticky areas.
  • Take your hands and make the dough about 1 inch thick while still on the floured surface.
  • Cut out your biscuits with a 2 inch cutter. Make sure there is flour on the cutter also. Push the cutter through the dough and come straight up.
  • Now place each biscuit on a baking sheet, make sure they do not touch each other.
  • Take your scrap dough and rework it so it is in a 1 inch thick form and cut more biscuits from this and place them on the baking sheet also. Don’t waste any leftover dough.
  • Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the biscuits are tall and golden brown on the top.
  • Take out of the oven and brush the top with melted butter. Yum Yum
