When I was just a boy, my dad would make the
gravy while mom fixed the bisquits and everything
else for breakfast.
Good homemade gravy is more art than science,
and after almost 50 years of making sausage
gravy, I still muck it up sometimes.
Here in the South, Pioneer brand gravy mix is about
as good as you'll find at any restaraunt, and a
heck of a lot easier than making it from scratch.
I prefer the peppered.
Just fry up some sausage, then make up the gravy,
crumble in the sausage, and spoon over bisquits.
I can make good bisquits, but we find that Mary B's brand
buttermilk frozen bisquits are as good as homemade
especially if you brush the tops with melted butter
or margarine as soon as they come out of the oven.
Served up with a couple of scrambled eggs...make your
tongue slap your brains out!
PS. MellowRoast - I grew up and lived in your neck of the
woods for 31 years before I moved to MS...in Pikeville, TN.
I used to play music at the old Stagecoach Inn and
the VFW on Lee Highway.
The Governor's Lounge on Brainerd Road had a great
breakfast as well, although they're probably gone
