From Scratch Biscuits and Gravy






Biscuit

Ingredients:

Yield 10 biscuits, 4oz each

All Purpose Flour 3 ¼ cups

Salt 2 tsp

Granulated Sugar 2tsp cup

Baking Powder 1 Tbsp.

Baking Soda ½ tsp

Unsalted Butter, cold 1 ¾ sticks

Milk ¾ cups

Buttermilk ¾ cups

Method of Prep:

1. Sift together the dry ingredients

2. Cut in the butter (using a cheese grater to shred the cheese works brilliantly)

3. Add the milk and stir, combining only until the mixture holds together

4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface; knead until it forms a mass (about 2-3 turns)

5. Roll out the dough to a thickness of ½ inch. Cut biscuits with a floured cutter and place on a parchment paper lined sheet tray. Make sure the biscuits butt-up against each other, as the biscuits will help each other rise!

6. Bake at 400 degrees until the tops are light brown, about 10-12 minutes. Don’t be afraid to pop one open to make sure they are done inside.

Sausage Gravy

Ingredients:

Butter 1 Tbspn

Flour ¼ cup

Milk 16 oz

Sausage 4

Method of Prep:

In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Be careful not to brown the butter. Once it's melted add the sausage and brown until fully cooked. Add the flour and stir into a paste. Cook the paste for 1 minute and add milk. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the bottom of the pan to make sure it's all incorporated. Use a whisk to stir the sauce over medium to high heat. Cook until the sauce is a nappe consistency. Season to with Pro Seasoning
