Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

We usually have gravy and biscuits on a couple of Saturdays each month. We probably won't have time for a big breakfast tomorrow before we go down to watch the parade, so I made a batch today.

My husband has been trying to loose weight (he's lost 20 lbs!). One of his weaknesses is sausage biscuits. Well, he hasn't ate one from a fast food place for quite a while. I've been making him sausage biscuits using turkey sausage. I put it on double fiber buns, add an egg fried in Pam, and fat free cheese. He loves them!

This is also the sausage we now use for our gravy and biscuits. . .


It's really good. It must be the spices they use.

I make my biscuits using a biscuit mix (such as Bisquick, Jiffy or Kroger brand). I mix with buttermilk, roll them out and cut them into large biscuits. I use a big cup to cut them out with.



Another secret to good biscuits is baking them on a baking stone. You can see how well used my stone is by it's patina. I love my baking stone!




I use Teays Valley Country Gravy Mix. It's the best! I buy it in a 3-box pak at Sam's. Each box contains 2 pkgs of the mix. Just follow the easy instructions on the box. If you want to make a double batch, just use 2 pouches of the mix.



Chop up and fry your turkey sausage and add it to the cooked gravy mix. This is how much a double batch makes.



Here's your biscuits fresh out of the oven



Here's your plate of sausage gravy and biscuits just waiting for you to eat and enjoy. Looks and tastes just as good as what you would get at Tudor's Biscuit World. But it's better for you because of the turkey sausage.

  3. Sister B and I love sausage gravy. Sister N turns her nose up everytime and says, 'Ick.' Yours looks fabulous! My stomach is actually growling. :)

    We also like creamed chipped beef. When our Mom was still with us she used to make it a lot when we had breakfast food for dinner. She'd make creamed chipped beef, scrambled eggs, fried tomatoes, scrapple and biscuits. Yum! xxoo

  7. Looks so good and that is excately what we had for breakfast this morning. It has been puring down since 3 am and the bbq wiil probably be delayed until late since the sun is refusing to shine today and I had a small pool party with the girls planned for today. We wanted to get butter ball brown for tonight's festivites. Oh well, I guess that why they make bronzer. Your hubby is a lucky man, eating like a king, mine too I guess.
    Happy 4th,
    Shanda
