My young friend Samuel Bedor, son of John and Dorothy Wilkes Bedor, and I enjoyed cooking together for several days. He is an extremely bright young man who is passionate about food. Not only is he growing but he participates in his school’s swim team and is burning a significant number of calories daily. He told me that he eats 3 bowls of cereal every day after school! We decided to make foods he can cook by himself. One of the things he particularly liked was biscuits with sausage gravy. You won’t believe how easy this is to make. There are only 3 ingredients and it tastes like you went to Hardees or McDonalds. The best part is you can make it in your PJ’s.
Biscuits with Sausage Gravy
6 Frozen Biscuits (I like Pillsbury Southern Style)
1/2 pound sausage (I used Jimmy Dean Regular)
1 package biscuit gravy mix (I used Pioneer brand)
In a skillet on medium high heat, cook sausage until browned and no longer pink; break up sausage as it cooks with a wooden spoon. Drain and reserve. Preheat oven and bake biscuits according to package directions. Make biscuit gravy according to package directions. Add reserved sausage to gravy and stir. Serve over hot biscuits. Tip: Cook sausage the night before. Reheat in the microwave before adding to the gravy.
