Hey All,

I just got finished making sausage rolls using my biscuit recipe above....... And it hit me! For 2 cups of flour you use 3/4 cup of buttermilk. I am so used to making 4 cup batches I didn't reduce the buttermilk as I should have.

I am so sorry if I messed anyone up. Speechpeach... especially you, I should have noticed after you called me on it.

To make the sausage rolls:

Use the above recipe for biscuits. Turn all the dough at once onto a well floured board and PAT it out with your hands, very gently, until the dough is 3/4 inch thick. Take 1/2 pound of sausage and spread it as best you can a pinch at a time all over the surface of the dough.
Roll up the dough/sausage like it was a jelly roll cake. Wrap in Saran Wrap (yeah, the rolling up and wrapping is tricky) and place in the freezer for about 3 hours. Take out and slice it 3/4 inch thick slices and bake at 350* for about 20 minutes or until it is light brown on top. BTW, you will need to leave about 1 1/2 inch between each slice as they spread a lot.
You can double or even triple the recipe and re-freeze the slices for later, that is what I always do.

Kids love these things and they dont last long around here. Every time my kids have friends over for the night they eat 'em up!

    I love biscuits and gravy. Of course, home cooking is the best, but I've always have pretty good luck with biscuits and gravy no matter where I find them. The key to me is the thicker the gravy the better.

    Breakfast, lunch, even for dinner once in a while... Good stuff anytime.

      Since my husband is from the South I learned how to make this. It is sooooo tasty! I also learned how to make hot dog gravy for him (one of his favorites) served over white bread.

            Hello everyone:
            this is big jim in ca. You are talking about my favorite food. B/G
            I have read all these e-mails and come to the conclusion that all
            these canned and frozen biscuits are good for is to throw at a dog
            passing by the front of your yard. the homemade biscuits and gravy
            are so easy to make and once you get use to making them homemade you
            will see that it dosen`t take as much time as you first thought.
            God put us on this earth to enjoy the simplar things in life and
            B/G is one of them. god bless keep you all....Big Jim

              Sorry I am just now seeing your post.
              You can eat them however you like them best. We like them hot out of the oven with sourwood honey drizzled on them.

                    I love biscuits and gravy! If I go out for breakfast, that's usually what I get. It's cheap, filling and good!

                      a FEW YEARS AGO THE FAMILY WANTED A CHEAP PLACE TO HAVE BREAKFAST BEFORE WER WENT TO bROOKFIELD ZOO NEAR cHICAGO.(I hate when I hit the cap key)WE didn't know what part of the world we were in. we found a place named something like "Hobos" I knew it was not going to be cheap when the lowest priced car in the parking lot was a Benz ( excluding my 78 Celebrity S/W.) Guess what they used for biskets and gravy? LINK sausage! I'll bet they had never been near any self respecting Truck Stop. Not bad but it took all my money.

                        Whenever I visit a Bob Evans restaurant, I always have some biscuits and gravy. Usually it's a side dish served alongside bacon and eggs. They're good, but I'm not sure what everyone else thinks of the quality of Bob Evans restaurants.

                          I like biscuits and gravy, but I prefer chicken gravy instead of sausage...whenever I fix fried chicken I make a batch of biscuits and fix gravy with the pan drippings.
                          Making biscuits is quick and easy, in fact I often bake a batch when we are in need of a fast snack.

                                I always ate biscuits and gravy while I lived in Fl and got them so cheap never had to make them myself. Came to MA for a visit went to a Bickford's for breakfast seen it on the menu stated as suasage biscuits and gravy and ordered it.
                                Got some OK biscuits but the gravy had us laughing at the table,. It was a glazy brown gravy with mushrooms, onions and peppers with link sausage on the side. This was served at 7:00am. I could not let it go and told the waitress that this was not sausage gravy and biscuits as the menu stated she got miffed and got the cook who came out and told me that he didn't care where I was from but up here in New England this is how everyone likes the biscuits and gravy. Needless to say I didn't eat it.

                                I have since made my own:
                                I use Jiffy or Bisquick mix according to pkg. I don't roll or drop. Instead a mold them like I would a burger then bake, always good.
                                For the gravy I fry up bulk sausage and leave the drippings and pieces in the pan and mix with a little butter, flour and milk untill I have the consistancy I want then I add sausage back to pan and season with Ms. Dash and s&p as needed. I get raves every time. Quick and easy

                                  I use a package of jimmydean spicey brkfast sausage crumbled and browned, a couple spoons full of flour to the resulting grease and make a blonde ruex add a couple cups of milk and stir till thickened, a little salt and lots of redpepper, then return the sausage.. Although biscuts are easy to make some of the frozen ones are rather good and theres no cleanup.. I often make a large batch of sausage gravy and refrigerate it, pop a couple biscuts in the oven a cup or 2 of gravy in the nuker and in 10 minutes brkfst/brunch/2am snack is ready

                                      Re; Popeyes biscuits...the places near me taste fishy...there is some cross-contamination from the fried fish somehow.

                                        Hello All,
                                        I like to make a thick gravy, just flour, milk, salt and pepper, and chipped beef. I spread it over white bread, then add more pepper. It looks pretty gray and isn't a fountain of flavour, but it hits the spot and reminds me of my childhood.
                                        Take care,

                                          RE: Biscuits and Gravy Sat, 09/17/05 7:57 AM (permalink)
                                          Chip beef and gravy reminds me of my basic training at Lackland AFB in San Antonio. They had it every morning and I ate it every morning for eight weeks. I made my self a vow at the time that I would never try it again but I was wrong. I still enjoy it and I buy Stoffers frozen chip beef and gravy to this day.

                                            Found a place called Brothers Restaurant (Waring Road of I-8 in San Diego) this morning. Took my mother and wife there for breakfast. The place is about 35 years old and looks it. Has a breakfast counter with those bolted in place stools. No booths, just formica covered tables and metal chairs with vinyl seats and backs. The Biscuits and Gravy came with four biscuits covered with sausage gravy, three eggs, two slices of bacon and two sausage links and hash brown potatoes for $6.95. I heard some people have been coming there every day for over 10 years. The food was good and reasonable… all three of us left only $23.00 (including tip) poorer and skipped lunch.

                                                Oh my, I love biscuits and gravy! Gravy was my first food, eaten off my mamaws fingers when milk just wasn't good enough for me.

                                                I don't like sausage in mine but do love tomato gravy. If I have to have just biscuits, it's muscadine jelly, pear preserves or blueberry jam. Or my all time favorite, sorghum syrup and butter!

                                                And my poor husband would pure faint away if I opened a can of biscuits, even though I like em sometimes.

                                                As for Sister Schubert's, Amen! Those orange rolls are soo good!

                                                  Being from the northeast, and having lived with a bowl of cereal for breakfast for the better part of my life, I have had B&G on only two occasions when I lived in Chicago. Once while visiting a girlfriend's relatives in Normal, Illinois, and once when her brother came to visit us in Chicago. I don't remember the place in Normal, but it may very well have been Bob Evans. In Chicago, we ate at Ann Sathers on Belmont.

                                                  I must say I enjoyed both meals, but I find the whole thing very heavy eating that early in the day. Gravy for breakfast is virtually unheard of in Central New York where I grew up and now reside.

                                                  Having said that, I have enjoyed reading these posts, and am considering making it home made. I can make my own sausage with the help og Bruce Aidell's cookbook, or trip up to Syracuse for some Liehs, and Steigerwald's, and we have a great recipe for cream biscuits....HHHMMMMMM....

                                                    I fell in love with biscuits and gravy on my trip to NY during the summer. The Hampton Inn hotel I was staying at offered them for breakfast one morning. Loved them!

                                                      That's funny about biscuits and gravy seeming too heavy. My family ran a dairy farm from the 40's - 70's in west TX and it was common practice for "the men" to eat their big meals in the morning and at "dinner-time" (aka lunch-time) for energy (and before it was just too hot to eat), and biscuits and gravy were a staple for breakfast. "Supper" was usually light - leftovers from "dinner" most of the time.

                                                      It's also funny to think of anyone discovering biscuits and gravy in the Hamptons! For some reason that cracks me up - the world gets smaller by the day - soon none of us will have any "regional" items at all to point to as "ours."

                                                        Just a thought for those who enjoy bisquits and gravy. I have purchased Libby's sausage and gravy in the can at Walmarts for some time and my family has enjoyed it very much. For a canned product it is very good. I usually add some pepper to zip it up a notch and serve it with Mamaw Smiths home made drop bisquits.

                                                          I really don't want to talk too much about sausage gravy and biscuits because they're really good at Bob Evans, and sometimes the food is brought quickly, and it is a chain.
