Total Time45 mins
- 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
- 1 lb ground breakfast sausage
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- Pepper to taste
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.
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.
