Biscuits and Gravy Recipe Seasonings
There are many different seasonings you can put into your gravy cream sauce. Some of the best seasonings include: cracked black pepper and a good sea salt. But there are also many herb options. Which herbs you ask? Well, I have tried thyme, sage along with onion powder, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. All of these seasonings help to spice up your sausage and gravy recipes.
Bob Evans Biscuits and Gravy Recipe
Because of watching all of the cooking shows on the food network my wife and I have have taken to signing up for cooking classes together and have worked hard to duplicate different restaurant recipes at home. But, the Bob Evan’s biscuit and gravy recipe always eluded us. Until, that is, we found the secret: we can now duplicate most restaurant recipes at home. What we use is a combination of Grandma’s Buttermilk Biscuits along with the peppery gravy sausage shown at the bottom.
And, here is what I like to call Grandma’s Buttermilk Biscuit recipe:
Grandma’s Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe
I just found a biscuit recipe that rivals my grandmothers.This would make a fantastic base for your sweet sausage gravy. Definitely a recipe to keep.
What you will need:
• 2 Cups all-purpose flour
• 1 Tablespoon baking powder
• 3/4 Teaspoon salt
• 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
• 5 Tablespoons vegetable shortening (cold)
• 1 Cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425F.
In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut the shortening into the flour and mixture with a blender, or fork, until coarse crumbs form. Add the buttermilk, and toss with a fork, until the dough holds together. Turn the dough out on a floured surface and form into a disk.
Knead slightly until smooth. Pat dough to 3/4-inches. Use a biscuit cutter or glass dipped in flour, to cut out biscuits. Place the biscuits about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Gather the trimmings and repeat forming and cutting. Bake about 13 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
Makes 12 biscuits.
Gravy – Peppery Sausage Gravy
What you will need for this gravy recipe:
1 Stick butter
3/4 Pound sausage
1/2 Teaspoon black ground pepper (or, to taste)
1 Cup flour (or less for thinner gravy)
1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 Quart milk
Fry sausage into small pieces. Melt butter in a separate skillet. Add black pepper, stir. Add flour by tablespoons until thick. Whisk in milk. Whisk until smooth and hot. Add sausage, stir. Put sausage gravy on open-face biscuits.
