Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
One of the South’s signature dishes, biscuits and gravy can be enjoyed at any time of day. Much like shrimp and grits, however, this instinctively savory meal has become a Southern breakfast staple. Biscuits and gravy can be broken down into two essential components: the fluffy, warm buttermilk biscuits, sliced down the middle, and the thick, salty gravy. Like most traditional renditions, this recipe uses pork sausage to add flavor and texture to the gravy, but you can substitute with any kind of ground sausage, from chicken to turkey.The dish comes together quickly—just set your alarm an hour earlier and your guests will awaken to the sweet aromas of biscuits baking and gravy stewing. It’s one of our weekend brunch favorites, and it’s a great way to feed a crowd. If you’re in a pinch, it’s easy to prepare this dish ahead of time—just allot time to bake the premade biscuit dough for 14 minutes, and you’ve got a winning breakfast spread.
