A few weeks ago, I shared a recipe for buttermilk biscuits. Those biscuits gave me a craving for biscuits with sausage gravy and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. This weekend I finally made some. It was a perfect breakfast choice for the cold Fall morning.
The mother of my childhood best friend would make us sausage gravy and biscuits when we had sleepovers. This is where I first ate sausage gravy and I instantly fell I love. The buttery biscuit and peppery gravy is a fantastic combination.
Throughout the years I’d order this Southern staple at diners and restaurants on and off. A consistent problem was a serious lack of seasoning and sub-par biscuits. Light or no seasoning ruins sausage gravy and hard dense biscuits won’t soak up the wonderful gravy. I stopped ordering this out… It was always disappointing. After giving up on restaurants, I began making this classic breakfast item at home. Turns out it’s easy, fast and incredible tasting!
These biscuits are super flaky, buttery and salty. The sausage gravy is hearty and spicy. That spicy kick from the red pepper flakes, along with the sweet flavor of the sausage, are my favorite parts. The fresh chives on top lend a slight onion flavor and freshness that compliments the dish nicely and gives a nice pop of green color.
