Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits & Gravy

I don’t know about the man in your life, but there are few things that Doug enjoys more for breakfast than Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits & Gravy. So with Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, I thought I would share one of his favorite breakfast recipes with you all!

Now, I have to honest here…Doug is a better gravy maker than I am. So even though he will enjoy this Sausage Gravy for Father’s Day, he might have to make it himself.

Gravy making is really not difficult, and I think the more you practice the better you get at making it. One of the key tools is a cast iron skillet, of course you can make it in a regular skillet and we did for many years, but the extra flavoring that you get from the sausage dripping left in the cast iron gives the gravy that extra special touch.

We tried a new recipe for the Buttermilk Biscuits, and were pretty happy with them. The original recipe came from Sugar & Spice by Celeste. They were easy to put together and baked up nicely. They were a little heavier than I expected though.

  2. Can I make ahead and refrigerate the dough???

    • Hi Hannah, we haven’t tried chilling the dough in the fridge, but I don’t see why you couldn’t.
      I would just wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and maybe put it in a resealable bag.
      Thanks for stopping by!

    How many biscuits does this make? Trying to decide if I need to double the recipe to feed my family. Thanks!

  4. Do we add the oil to the grease from the sausage?! Or drain it all off, then add the oil?!
