Ingredients

Drop Biscuits

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter cold, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cup milk

Sausage Gravy

  • 1 lb ground breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

Drop Biscuits

  • Preheat oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar and sugar. Whisk together well.
  • Using a pastry mixer, cut in cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in milk, and mix dough together just until moistened. Do not over mix.
  • Drop by rounded spoonful onto prepared baking sheet. Makes 12 biscuits
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the tops have turned golden brown.

Sausage Gravy

  • While biscuits are baking, brown and crumble sausage in a large skillet. Drain off the excess grease but do not rinse meat.
  • Sprinkle flour over cooked sausage and mix to combine. The sausage should be coated and crumbly and not clumpy
  • Pour in 1 cup of milk and pepper to taste and stir well. Add in remaining 1 cup of milk and bring mixture to a very low boil.
  • Reduce heat to simmer and stir frequently until the sausage gravy thickens.
  • If the sausage gravy is too thick for your taste, add more milk 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve warm over fresh from the oven homemade biscuits.
