Biscuits – Adapted from Alton Brown’s Recipe
- 2 cups flour (I’ve used white whole wheat flour for this recipe as well and it comes out great!)
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup buttermilk, chilled (I used 1 tablespoon of lemon to one cup of milk to make buttermilk)
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees
Place flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and butter into a food processor
. Pulse until mixture has a crumble like texture. Then turn on food processor and slowly add the milk. When dough is completely mixed together it will have a very sticky texture.
Using a liberal amount of flour, flour your surface and place your dough on it. Roll out your dough to be at least 1 inch and using a cookie cutter make the shape of your biscuits. To celebrate spring I used a daisy cookie cutter! I rolled out this dough a little thin but they still came out good!
Place biscuits on a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Biscuits will be tall and have a beautiful golden color.
From start to finish (if you have a food processor) it should take less then 10 minutes to make up the dough! It’s a very easy recipe.
Now for the gravy – Recipe adapted from allrecipes.com
- 1 (8 oz) package of sausage, ground
- 1/4 cup of white whole wheat flour
- 2 cups of milk
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
In a 10 inch skillet, on medium heat, brown the sausage. Then, stir flour into cooked sausage. Adding the milk slowly, whisk the gravy until it becomes smooth and thick.
Time to assemble
Place biscuits on your plate.
I added one scrambled egg over the top of the biscuits.
Then top with gravy and sausage. YUM!
