Homemade Biscuits and Gravy Recipes

My family loves for me to make a quick homemade meal of biscuits and gravy. It is a meal that always goes over well with my family. I enjoy making a home cooked meal that will satisfy everyone in my family. Having several picky eaters, it can be a challenge.

My teenage son enjoys his biscuits and gravy separate. As he likes to dip his biscuits in his gravy. There si no wrong way to enjoy homemade biscuits and gravy.

Homemade Biscuit Recipe

Ingredients :
2 1/2 C. Flour
1 TBS Baking powder
1 C. milk
1/3 C. soft butter
1 tsp of sugar and salt

 Lightly grease baking sheet. I use a paper towel to wipe the grease on lightly. Add all dry products and mix : Flour, salt, sugar, baking powder. Add butter. Mix well. Slowly add in milk. When mix. You must kneed the mixture about 15 times. To ensure all the air bubbles get removed. Use a cookie or ice cream scoop to scoop out the mixture on the baking sheet. To ensure they are all roughly the same size. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.

Optional : Brush the tops of the biscuits with butter for extra buttery flavor.

Homemade Gravy
Instructions :
1/2 gallon of milk
2 tsp chicken bouillon
1 TBS butter
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
5 pieces of crumbled up turkey bacon

On medium heat. Add all ingredients to pot. Mix well with a whisk. Once complete, add a thickener. Slowly add in a mixture of 1/2 c. cornstarch and enough water to make it as thick as you want your gravy. This mixture is what thickens your gravy.

When complete, pour over biscuits. Enjoy!
