As I look back on our very early years, this mom didn’t have access to all the clean nutrient-dense ingredients that I have today. When a recipe like this called for sausage I would often replace it with grass-fed hamburger because, at that time, beef was the only clean meat produced on our family farm.
Thankfully, a lot has changed since then and regenerative farming practices have grown and are flourishing insomuch that we now can offer all my personal favorites in our on-farm store and on our website. It fills my heart to know that so many families across America are teaming together quality ingredients in flavorful recipes that nourish their families.
Yes, I will admit, that my cooking may not seem high-end compared to some, but the sacrifices we make for clean wholesome ingredients make all the difference! I hope you enjoy this simple yet satisfying recipe.
God’s very best to you and your family from a mother who understands the sacrifices we make to fuel our children with REAL whole foods. John 3:16
How to Make the Gravy
- In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the breakfast sausage and break it down.
- When the sausage in browned, add in your butter and flour. Mix evenly throughout the sausage.
- Add in the milk and cream, mixing continuously until mixture begins to thicken - add more milk if needed. Season with salt and ground pepper (can use organic gravy seasoning as well).
- The gravy is ready to be served atop biscuits.
How to Make the Biscuits
You can use canned biscuits or a biscuit mix if desired for a quicker biscuit. ;) Or, follow this simple biscuit recipe below:
- Cube 1/2 cup butter and place in refrigerator until ready for use.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/2 tbs baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp salt, and mix thoroughly. Add in your cold butter and cut it into flour mixture with a pastry cutter or blender until the butter becomes pea-sized.
- Add in 1 cup of cold milk minus 2 tbsp (add in later if needed) and stir until mixture comes together (do not over-mix).
- Turn out dough onto a floured surface, pat dough into a rectangle, fold a second time and pat into a 5x10 rectangle with a 3/4" thickness.
- Cut out biscuits with a cutter or a mason jar head and place on a prepare baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter and serve. Yields 10 biscuits.
