Southern Biscuits And Gravy From Scratch Tips

We all know that homemade sausage gravy is an absolute classic and hearty breakfast. Makes you feel like you instantly traveled down South, right? If you are looking for a few quick tips to help make this recipe run smoother, don’t skip this section.

  • Country sausage in a creamy white gravy tastes great over biscuits. But you can also use this topping on vegetables as well. If you have any left over, consider adding it to roasted Brussel sprouts and asparagus. Even mashed potatoes!
  • You can make the gravy the night before! In case you want to split out this recipe and make some of it ahead, it is possible. Simply, make sure the gravy has completely cooled and then feel free to store your gravy in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 24 hours. 

This is the best biscuits and gravy recipe I have ever made! I hope you truly enjoy it. Let me know if you try it out. Be sure to print the below recipe and try some more of my breakfast ideas during the rest of the week:
