Ingredients

For the Biscuits

  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • ¾ cup cold whole milk

For the Gravy

  • 1 lb. loose breakfast sausage
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt until combined.
  3. Add the butter and cut it in using a pastry knife until the butter is the size of rice.
  4. Mix in the milk until just combined and then transfer the dough onto a cutting board.
  5. Knead for 1-2 minutes or until combined together.
  6. Flatten the dough with your hands until it is about 1” thick.
  7. Using a circle cookie cutter, cut out as many biscuits as possible and place on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.
  8. Reform the dough and cut out more biscuits and repeat the process until all the dough has been used.
  9. Bake in the oven at 425°F for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside.
  10. Add the sausage to a medium-size pan over medium-high heat. Break up the sausage into small bite-size pieces and keep on the heat until fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
  11. Set the sausage to the side and return the pan to the cooktop over medium-high heat. Mix in the butter and flour until completely combined.
  12. Pour in the milk, stir and bring to a boil until it becomes thick.
  13. Once the gravy is thick, add the sausage back in and season with salt and pepper.
  14. Mix together and serve with the biscuits.
