I know, the first thing you thought of when you read that title was our President. Sorry to disappoint, but that’s not what/whom inspired my line.
I’m about to date myself a bit, but whatever. I’m 36 and fabulous.
The line “I’m the one that said, just grab’em in the biscuits” comes from one of my favorite groups: Digital Underground. That’s right. The Humpty Dance. Many of you probably don’t know that this guy, Shock G, produced Tupac’s “I Get Around”.
Never heard of them you say? Psssh, what rock were you lying under in the 90’s.
I kid, of course.
Ok. Back to cooking.
This recipe is YUMMY. Seriously. I don’t think I could ever get my sausage and gravy the way I wanted. But the other night- BOOM. No, the pressure cooker didn’t explode- but I finally made gravy that I LOVED. It was perfection and so damn easy too!
Here’s another kicker, when I served it, my kitchen didn’t look like a hot mess, so I was actually able to enjoy it! No ma’am, there were no lingering thoughts in my head of “Damn it, I don’t wanna go in there!”
Many of you will say “But Kimmy, you could easily just make this on the stove top”
Mmmm I disagree. For me, it’s not as easy and it’s not as clean either, as mentioned above. Usually when I would make sausage and gravy- flour would be everywhere from me adding more and more to the mix. There would be drops and dribbles of milk. I’d mess up the roux. Nope. Not anymore. None for me thanks, I’m driving.
There are moments while cooking up this deliciously delicious ambrosia of the southern Gods- to clean- or whatever you wish. For me, those moments are precious- I’ve included them in the recipe- hopefully to save you from the after dinner clean up!
Here it goes ya’ll. (You simply cannot make gravy without saying ya’ll)
Sausage and Gravy with Biscuits
Here’s what you will need:
Microwave (or oven- or neither- more on that)
4-6 pieces of Bacon (OR you can save time by buying precooked bacon or REAL bacon bits)
2lbs of ground sausage (I used Jimmy Deans original)
1 cup of chicken stock (if you made the Buffalo Wings/Drumsticks you should have some left- if you have some left from this and haven’t made the drumsticks… well you know)
6 cups of milk (I used whole milk)
1 cup of flour
1 tube of Grands Southern Biscuits (OR you can save time and buy them premade- BoJangles biscuits are delicious… just sayin)
Salt, black pepper to taste
Ok YA’LL, there are many ways to start out. You can cook your bacon in the oven or stovetop, you can buy precooked bacon, OR you can dice up your bacon and toss it in your instant pot with the sausage (probably faster- but not crunchy).
Lastly, you can just follow my lead. Microwave. I’m all about fast. Ha!
Hold on to your biscuits- because here we go!
That’s it! This made A LOT of gravy! We had enough left overs for two more meals. I really hope you guys enjoy this, because we sure did! For two days and I wasn’t mad about it.
I don’t think I’ve had gravy this delicious before- sorry dad- this totally beats yours.
**Re-heating tip- add just a little bit of milk when you reheat. It will get it back to smooth so that when you heat it up it’s not clumpy. And now you know…
