  • 16.5 oz can Pillsbury Grands biscuits one package should contain 8 biscuits
  • 16 oz roll breakfast sausage we like "hot"
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk we use skim
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt more or less to taste


  • Bake biscuits according to package directions while you prepare the gravy.
  • Heat a large skillet (I use a straight edged sauté pan) over medium-high heat.
  • Add sausage and cook, breaking it up as you go, until pork is cooked through, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Transfer cooked sausage to a bowl, set aside.
  • To the same pan, add butter and melt.
  • Whisk the flour into melted butter and cook, whisking continuously, for about 1 minute.
  • Slowly whisk the milk into the pan.
  • Stir in pepper, rosemary, thyme, and salt.
  • Bring the gravy to a simmer while whisking regularly and simmer for 2-5 minutes, or until desired thickness is reached.
Stir in the sausage.
  • Taste and re-season if necessary.
  • Serve with biscuits!



*Store gravy and biscuits separately. Storing information is for gravy.
