Day 2 of 17 Days of PW cooking...

Yes, Yes I know that I am very very far behind on my blog. For all of those people that said I would give up or wouldn't post regularly like I should...well you were right. So :-P.

On my 2nd day of a PW cooking, I decided to make biscuits and gravy. Simple enough. Just need to make the gravy, cook some Jimmy Dean Sausage (again, first time ever in life making the sausage that I have to make into patties) and eat. Not bad.

I was always told that making gravy was kinda tricky. And yeah I have to agree. The first time I added milk, it was WAY too runny. So I added bit more flour and this point, it was too thick. So that is defiantly going to be something that I have to master the art of.

These are the best biscuits ever. I used them for Monkey Muffins and OMG...delicious. Just something about them, can't get enough!

The cooking "connoisseur" proceeded to tell me that the sausage needed more salt. He of course did not eat any of it. So hence, no dessert. Oh well. I sure enjoyed my ice cream.

Recipe used is not always...PWs. Recipe and link are below.


  • 1 pound Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 can (16 Oz.) Canned Biscuits
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preparation Instructions

Slice the breakfast sausage and place in a warm pan. Cook the sausage according to the instruction (thoroughly cooked inside). Remove them to a paper towel to drain.
Place your biscuits into the oven to cook according to the instructions on the can.
Pour grease out of the skillet/pan you used for the sausage, adding back in only what you want to use to make the gravy. For one to two people, use about 2 to 3 tbsp. of grease. Over low to medium-low heat, add about 2 tbsp of flour to the grease and whisk immediately. If you add in a little more grease so it’s smooth and stirrable. You want to find a good balance between the flour and the grease.
Once you find it, just keep stirring with the whisk and allow the mixture to brown for a few minutes. As you whisk, scrape in the anything from the bottom of the pan as you go.
After 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly, pour in about a cup of milk. IF the mixture is dry, lumpy or pasty, add in more milk – again, drawing a balanced mixture. Add salt to taste. Let the gravy warm up over low heat, stirring occasionally. Cut prepared biscuits in half pour gravy atop them
