Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 2 cups of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  3. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the cold diced butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; it’s okay if there are some lumps.
  5. Press the biscuit dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly golden.
  7. While the biscuits are baking, in a large skillet, cook the ground breakfast sausage over medium heat until browned and cooked through. Break it into crumbles as it cooks.
  8. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour over the cooked sausage and stir for about 1-2 minutes until the flour is fully absorbed.
  9. Slowly pour in the whole milk, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  10. Once the biscuits are done baking, pour the sausage gravy evenly over the top.
  11. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the gravy is bubbly and the biscuits are golden brown.
  12. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
