Biscuits and Gravy

My absolute favorite breakfast would have to be biscuits and gravy. My Aunt Joyce has made it for me since I was little. I used to go to her house everyday before school and we would have biscuits and gravy once or twice a week. It has now become a camping Saturday breakfast routine and a favorite at my house every once in a while. Although my mom’s is really good, my Aunt Joyce makes it the best. It is definitely not the healthiest food in the world, but it is one of the most delicious!

First, you have to cook your sausage. Once it is done, you take most of it out to put in a separate dish and leave just enough in the pan to start the gravy with. Next, add oil and cook until the oil is really hot. Then, add flour to the sausage still in the pan and stir it around until it gets all nice and brown. Now, add a mixture of milk and water to the browned flour and sausage. You have to keep stirring this until it gets thicker, then add a little more water and milk until you have reached the amount of gravy you want. Once the gravy starts to thicken, add the sausage from the other dish and mix it in evenly. Do not forget to add lots of salt and pepper and your gravy is done! Now pour the mouth-watering gravy over warm, steamy, fresh out of the oven biscuits and top it all off with Tabasco and you’ll have the best breakfast your mouth has ever tasted!
