Old Fashion Buttermilk Biscuits with Sausage and Black Pepper Gravy

Breakfast the old fashioned way, just like Grandmother used to make.

  • tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 13 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 /2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and divided
Sausage Gravy:
  • 1 pound Paula Deen Breakfast Sausage by Smithfield (either hot or mild)
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 4 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon Louisiana Style hot sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cayenne pepper. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two forks until crumbly. Gradually add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Dough should be sticky. Do not overwork dough.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness with a floured rolling pin. Cut 12 biscuits with a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter. Place biscuits in a cast iron skillet or hoecake pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray and brush tops with half of melted butter. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until lightly browned. Brush with remaining melted butter before serving.
  • While biscuits are baking, start gravy. In in large saute pan or cast iron skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly. Reduce heat to medium and add flour to sausage; mix thoroughly. Cook until flour browns, about 4 minutes stirring constantly. Add milk slowly and increase heat to medium-high. Continue to stir. Add hot sauce, pepper, and salt. As the gravy comes to a boil, it will thicken. If too thick, add additional milk. After boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and add butter.
  • To serve place two of the buttermilk biscuits on each plate and top with sausage gravy and garnish with freshly cracked pepper.
Serving Suggestions
  • For a great twist, serve the biscuits on top of a bed of steamed fresh spinach.
