Do you like southern food? Yeah right! Who doesn’t? And the one thing everyone wants is a good southern biscuits and gravy recipe. Well here is the perfect recipe to go with my Southern Style Buttermilk Biscuits.
Y’all the other day I made my Homemade Southern Style Buttermilk Biscuits and it made me crave some biscuits and gravy, and I am talking a serious craving! We’ve had B & G twice since then; once for dinner and then Sunday morning for breakfast. I don’t get it but somehow country sausage gravy makes every breakfast better. I’m sure y’all all have experienced country sausage gravy that sucks. Literally just plain sucks! It’s either too thick, to thin, to starchy or the sausage is nasty or even better flavorless. The best part? Homemade country sausage gravy is so easy to make!
This is a recipe that I picked many many years ago, like 20+ years ago. There was a brief time that I lived in Cleveland, Tennessee. It is just between Chattanooga and Knoxville. I will say that is a beautiful area and I am glad I got to experience it; but I am also glad to be back in Arizona. Anyhow, while I was there I did get a recipe for southern country sausage gravy and an introduction to cast iron cooking and I’ve been making it ever since. You can get the true southern cooking by using a Pre Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet (12.5 inch) by Utopia Kitchen
