Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits with Country Sausage Gravy
Hey friends! I’ve been getting a ton of request for breakfast and brunch recipes. As many of you know, I am a breakfast lover. I can eat breakfast food, all day every day and I wouldn’t get tired of it. You’d think since I love breakfast so much, that I would have a lot of breakfast recipes posted, but I don’t. I have no legit reason for it, but that’s going to change. Since everyone has been requesting so many breakfast recipes, I’m definitely going to start posting more!
In this post, I’m going to share one of my all time favorite things to have for breakfast- Biscuits and Gravy!
In this post, I’m going to make homemade buttermilk biscuits. I know that we are in a day and time that people like to use canned biscuits. However making your very own homemade biscuits, are actually very easy! The recipe for buttermilk biscuits is really simple, and fool proof!
Now let’s talk gravy! I love old fashioned country sausage gravy. I used to think that making this gravy was so complicated, but It one of the easiest gravies to make! It only takes 4 ingredients, and one of the ingredients that I use is Half & Half (half milk and half cream). I used half and half because it is MY preference. I love the creamy texture of it. Therefore I use half and half in a lot of my dishes, and baked good. If you’d like to replace the half & half with regular milk, you can.
This recipe is pretty much foolproof, but make sure you watch the video down below for a visual 🙂
Here’s the video tutorial & recipe!
