Get the Most Out of Your Breakfast with This Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

National Buttermilk Biscuit Day is observed each year in the United States on May 14th. This food holiday celebrates the delectable culinary invention of the American biscuit. Before the American Civil War, biscuits emerged as an inexpensive addition to the U.S. working class’ breakfast, which could be made without the yeast typically used in bread baking.

This savory bread product became increasingly popular over the years, as people of all backgrounds noted its buttery deliciousness. Many dishes began using biscuits as an ingredient, and one of our community’s favorites is Biscuits and Gravy! Check out the recipe below:


• 1 can (16.3 ounces) Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits
• 1 pound sage flavored pork breakfast sausage
• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 2 1/2 cups whole milk
• 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper


1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake biscuits as directed on the can.

2. Place sausage in a saucepan and turn heat to medium-high. Cook, crumbling the sausage as it cooks, until no pink remains. Do not drain the skillet.

3. Sprinkle the flour evenly over the sausage crumbles and cook until the flour is absorbed.

4. Slowly pour the milk into your skillet, stirring as you pour.

5. Add crushed red pepper, then cook, stirring, until mixture is thickened.

6. Once biscuits are finished baking, slice in half, pour gravy over the biscuits, and serve!
