Homemade Biscuits With A Bonus Recipe!

 

Homemade Biscuits:
2 1/4 cups Homemade Biscuit Mix
2/3 cup milk

Mix well (If the batter is not doughy enough, add a bit more milk until it reaches the right consistency) and drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.

Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

If you want to freeze them:
Place on cookie sheet and freeze.  Once frozen store in airtight, freezer safe container. Thaw and enjoy!

You could also freeze them uncooked (place on wax paper on a cookie sheet until hard, then transfer to container) and then pop in the oven the morning you need them!

NOW for the Bonus Recipe!

Homemade Biscuits and Gravy

Once in awhile it's nice to enjoy some comfort food and this is one of our favorites!  It's a bit of a southern style recipe and it is oh so good!

Gravy Recipe:
1 pound breakfast sausage
1/4 cup flour
2-3 cups milk
2-4 tbs butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder

Cook sausage until brown.  The grease can make your gravy very flavorful but it is not healthy at all. So it's up to you if you want to include it.  If you drain off the grease, save at least a few of the little cooked up bits at the bottom of the pan.  Remove sausage from the pan.  Melt butter (the amount of butter you use depends on how much grease you left in the pan).  Mix in the flour and whisk together until brown and smooth.  Add more butter as needed to get a smooth consistency.


Whisk in milk a cup at a time.  Mix until smooth and thick and it begins to bubble.  Add more milk as needed to maintain a thick and smooth consistency.  Return sausage to pan.  Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Simmer for about 10 minutes.

Serve over the biscuits above and enjoy!

 
OK, this just looks like a big blob of brownish stuff but I promise, it's good!
