The Assumption

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)

Yum! I hope I'm as good of a wife and mother as you are.

Thanks for the recipes. This one will definitely be added to my box.

I'm so glad you posted this... this is definitely one of my favorite breakfasts, but I'm never quite pleased when I order it at restaurants. Now I can make it myself! : )
