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

Instructions

  • 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

Homemade Ketchup Recipe

Homemade Ketchup Recipe

Homemade Ketchup Recipe.

When it comes to eating healthier or stock piling food away for future use ketchup is one of those foods you can never have enough of. My wife and myself put ketchup on most of our foods, the issue is that most commercial ketchup’s that you purchase at the store is loaded with sugars and other ingredients that are not good for your health.

Taking ketchup out of our diet is not an option my wife or I are about to do. In order to still keep ketchup on the menu we had to come up with an alternative that was healthier for us and that was to make our own. I started looking online and doing some trial and error ideas that sounded good I finally came up with a recipe that taste and looks like store bought ketchup. The items are store bought or taken from your pantry but overall it is much healthier than the ketchup in the bottle.

Ingredients

7 oz pure tomato paste

2 tbsp raw honey

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/8 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp onion granules

1/8 tsp ground cloves

2 tbsp of raw apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup of water

Instructions

Total Prep Time: 5 – 10 minuets

Mix together by hand all the ingredients but not the water yet in a large bowl. After everything is mixed slowly add was until you reach a happy consistency. Refrigerate after mixing and keep refrigerated.
