This morning I made sausage gravy and biscuits to celebrate the Assumption. I am well aware that this breakfast has nothing to do with Mary's assumption to heaven, but it was a nice warm breakfast. It took awhile to make and we really enjoyed eating it, so that equals a celebration!
This is how I made it:
Sausage Gravy & Biscuits
Brown 1 lb of ground sausage. Empty sausage from skillet, set aside. Melt a 1/4 cup butter in the same skillet. Add 1/3 cup flour and stir constantly, about 1 minute, until mixture is smooth. Then gradually add 3 1/4 cups milk to the skillet. Continue stirring constantly, until gravy thickens and bubbles (this part takes awhile...plan on standing next to the stove and stirring for 7-10 minutes). Then add 1/4 t Italian seasoning and some salt & pepper to taste. Add the sausage to the gravy, and stir until heated through [you may attempt to recruit husband to stir for you while you get the baby, but be warned: husband will get bored and want to hold the baby instead of stir the gravy]. Serve over warm biscuits.
You can use any sort or kind of biscuits you want. These are what I used.
Mix 2 1/4 cups Bisquick with 2/3 cup milk. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Should make about 9 smallish biscuits. Cook at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
And perhaps someday I will remember to take a picture of my successes in the kitchen...I'm really good at taking pictures of the baby! :o)
