Biscuits and Gravy is one of my favorite meals. I know it’s not the most healthy thing so I do not eat it often these days. However, I was craving some good “B & G and Floyd Sized Choco Milk” the other day.
“I’ll have a Half Order of B&G and A Floyd Sized Choco Milk”
A Half Order of B&G with a “Floyd Sized Choco Milk” was my order of choice back in my younger days when my friends and I were the (self-proclaimed) “Foosball Kings” of Storm Lake IA.
When I was about 17-19 my friends and I played Foosball. ALL THE TIME. We got really good. When I turned 18, I could go to the local bars. We couldn’t drink, but we could play Foos. The bars hosted weekly leagues, occasional tournaments, and almost every night of the week we could find a group of guys playing Foos at one of these local bars.
If for some reason we could find a game out on the town, my friends and I always had our home base – The Bowling Alley. My pal Dave’s parents ran the place, and my friends and I all worked there. This was our Foosball court. It was our house. Our turf to defend! Anyone who wanted to play there had to win the table from us (if we were playing). It was pretty tough to beat us anywhere, but especially on our “Home Table” at The Bowling Alley.
Anyways, we usually ended our Foosball adventures around 2 AM sitting in the back booth of a local eatery known as The Pantry. “Dino” was the cook, and he made the best Biscuits and Gravy ever!
That started my love of biscuits and gravy.
- **A box of Biscuit mix like “Bisquick” or Jiffy. I am using the “Everyday Essentials” Brand mix because that was all that was left at the store. I am following the directions on the box to make biscuits.
- 2 1/4 cups of biscuit mix
- Country Gravy packet
- 1 lb of pork sausage
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 1 3/4 cup of water
- stick of butter to butter the pan with
- Step 1 – Preheat the oven – the instructions for my box mix say preheat to 450
- Step 2 – Measure and pour the dry biscuit mix and milk into a mixing bowl and stir together until well mixed
- Step 3 – Butter the pan
- Step 4 – Spoon and drop dough – I make “drop biscuits” because they look prettier to me than those perfect “hockey puck” shaped biscuits.
- Step 5 – As the oven is heating up get the sausage started cooking. I cook the sausage just like when browning hamburger.
- Step 6 – When the oven is ready place the biscuits in to bake for about 8-10 minutes at 450
- Step 7 – Keep watching the sausage and moving it around occasionally.
- Step 8 – Pour the gravy mix into a saucepan. Slowly pour in and whisk the water into the mix. Once all the water is whisked in, heat the pan until it starts to boil, keep stirring slowly until it boils. Right when it boils, reduce the heat to a lower temp and then stir the gravy until it gets thick. Turn the heat very low or off.
- Step 9 – When the sausage is cooked, dump it all into the saucepan with the gravy. Stir together
- Step 10 – Remove the biscuits from the oven when done. The tops should be a nice golden brown.
- Step 11 – Plate and eat!
Or Add Scrambled Eggs for a Protein punch to this carb load!
