Cheddar Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

I made this up for breakfast this morning. Once I had the biscuits mixed up I got the sausage in the pan. As the biscuits came out, the gravy was being pulled off the stove. I made a thick gravy, if you like it a bit thinner feel free to add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk. This was a hearty breakfast and very tasty!

Cheddar Biscuits


  • 2 1/3 cups baking mix
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup grated mild cheddar


Heat your oven to 450° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl add the baking mix and cheese, toss to combine. Quickly add the butter and milk, mixing to combine. Drop the batter into 6 biscuits on the prepared sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Sausage Gravy


  • 12-ounce package lower fat breakfast sausage
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups dairy milk
  • 1 tsp dry thyme, rubbed
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley


In a large non-stick skillet melt the butter over medium heat, add in the sausage and cook till fully done, crumbling into small pieces. Shake the flour and seasonings over, cook for a couple of minutes till the flour is not raw anymore.

Slowly stir in the milk, scraping the skillet to release any golden tasties. Cook till thickened, lowering the heat to medium low, stirring often. If too thick, add up to 1/2 cup more milk to thin to your taste.

Split the warm biscuits and top with gravy.

Serves 3 to 4.
