Creamy gravy & savory sausage, topping carb-happy biscuits, makes Biscuits and Gravy a comfort food that's perfect any time of day!
For the Sausage (or just use 1 pound of flavorful sausage):
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fennel
  • Pinch cayenne (optional)
For the gravy:
  • 2 tablespoons oil if needed
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garic, minced
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 6 biscuits (your favorite recipe or Art of Natural Living White Whole Wheat Biscuits)
  1. Brown ground pork, cooking the meat until at least some of it is turning a nice golden brown. Stir in the sausage seasonings. (Or simply brown the sausage if using that)
  2. Remove meat with a slotted spoon retaining a couple tablespoons of fat. Add additional oil if needed to make 2 tablespoons or drain excess fat.
  3. Cook onion and garlic in retained fat until tender. Mix in flour and cook for a couple minutes. Gradually mix in milk a little at a time, and stir until thickened.
  4. Add cooked sausage back to the gravy and heat until rewarmed.
  5. Serve over your favorite biscuits.
