Homemade Biscuits & Gravy

Corey and I visited our friends Joe & Becca who live in Tulsa on the way back from vacation in Texas.  Joe is an excellent cook and became famous for his biscuits and gravy when we were in college.  Pre-tailgate anyone?  Well he of course was the best host and made them for us while we stayed with them a couple weeks back.  And now Corey has been begging me to try making them ever since.  It was actually pretty easy!  I followed the recipe I used to make the homemade gravy for chicken fried steaks and it turned out awesome!  Corey was in charge of making the homemade Bisquick biscuits which are pretty easy as well and taste amazing!

makes about 9
2 1/4 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
Heat oven to 450.  Stir ingredients until soft dough forms.  Generously sprinkle counter with Bisquick, then place dough on surface.  Knead 10 times.  Roll 1/2 inch thick.  Cut out biscuits with the top of a drinking glass or similar shaped circle.  Bake for 8-10 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.

Sausage Gravy:
1/2 roll sausage (I use spicy)
butter if needed
1/3 cup flour
2 to 3 cups milk (depending on how thick you like it)
salt & pepper
Cook sausage in a saute pan.  Take our sausage leaving remaining grease in pan.  You need about 1/4 cup grease, but if it looks like less you can add additional butter.  Whisk in your flour until dissolved and starts to get bubbly.  Slowly whisk in milk and continue whisking over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes adding more milk if its too thick for you.  Season with salt & pepper to taste.  Add back in sausage and serve over biscuits.

its a must to top it with a runny egg!
