 Without a doubt, one of the most comforting, indulgent old-fashioned breakfasts, from my perspective, is biscuits and gravy. I’m not from the South (though my grandma is), so I have no idea what the “traditional” preparation is supposed to taste like, but I know that the versions we have access to here in the Northwest are quite tasty. I’ve ordered it in restaurants, with varying degrees of success (generally, the cardinal sin seems to be an insufficient amount of salt), but nearly every time I’ve tried it at home, it’s turned out perfectly. And little wonder – there are a just a couple of ingredients in the gravy, which is the easy part, and the only part I attempt! Yep, I use a can of Grands biscuits. Why? Because they’re incredibly tasty. Chels makes some great drop biscuits, and maybe someday I’ll learn how to do that, but right now, not being especially comfortable with baking but being incredibly comfortable with a skillet over open flame, I’ll stick with what works.

Easy Biscuits & Gravy | Catz in the Kitchen | | #Gravy #Recipe #Breakfast #BiscuitsI’ve used many different sausage gravy recipes, and they all seem to aim for (and generally hit) that creamy, salty, slightly spicy mixture of goodness that makes this meal so fulfilling. The last one I tried, however, was more or less based on Ree Drummond’s over at The Pioneer Woman, where I find a lot of the basics behind recipes I make. I adjust the amounts of various ingredients to make it the way I want it to be, but Ree generally nails these types of meals, and sausage gravy is no exception.Easy Biscuits & Gravy | Catz in the Kitchen | | #Gravy #Recipe #Breakfast #Biscuits

Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier – sausage, milk, flour, a few seasonings, and a can of Grands. If this wasn’t so unhealthy, I’d make it all the time! When I took these photos, we had just had nine inches of snow dumped on our heads, which here in the Pacific Northwest qualifies as Snowpacolypse (or so social media tells me). Needless to say, the roads, trains, buses, and many businesses were shut down completely. I broke Chels’s Volvo out of the snow and ice, warmed it up, and made the quick one mile trek up the road to our local supermarket, and grabbed some sausage. That wasn’t overly perilous, and it was worth it. Biscuits and gravy are the right meal for a snowy, stay-in morning.
