How to make Easy Sausage Gravy and Homemade Biscuits:

For the Biscuits:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 C). Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender, 2 knives, or a fork until mixture resembles coarse meal. Chill in refrigerator for 10 minutes.

 

Stir honey into buttermilk until well blended. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until moist. The key to making really soft biscuits is not handling the dough too much.

 

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 4 times.

 

Gently roll dough into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle with a rolling pin. Fold the dough into thirds as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope. Gently re-roll dough into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Fold dough into thirds one more time. Gently roll to a 1/2 inch thickness.

 

Cut dough with a biscuit or cookie cutter to form 4 biscuits. Place them 1 inch apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

 

Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

 

For the Gravy:

While the biscuits bake, brown the sausage in a large saucepan.

 

Add the flour, butter, and cream. Cook on medium-low, stirring often, for several minutes until thickened.

      Hi Lynn, that nutrition listed is per serving and includes 2 biscuits each. They are generous portions and yes, Sausage Gravy and Biscuits are NOT diet food 🙂 Thanks for your question.
