Sausage Gravy and Bisquit Recipe from Distraction Charters
Those of us who are from the South, have all been to at least one Hardee's Restaurant and had a helping of their sausage gravy and bisquits. This recipe below is merely Distraction Charters rendition of the southern delight. This is a favorite of our children on a Sunday morning, but you can make it anytime of the year. Hope you enjoy.
Sausage Gravy Ingredients:
- 1 pound - ground sausage. Jimmy Dean, Rudys, Zeigler - any will do.
- 1 large pot. 4 quart will do just fine.
- 2 cups of 2 percent milk. Whole milk or skim milk will do just fine.
- 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 tablespoon Salt
- 1 tablespoon Black Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning.
- 3 cups of cold tap water
- 8 to 10 whomp bisquits or fresh frozen whole bisquits from Mary B's. Cook as directed.
Directions to making Distraction Charters Sausage Gravy:
- In a large pot, add 1 pound of ground sausage and brown the meat on a medium high heat.
- After meat is browned, add 1 cup of all purpose flour and stir into meat. The purpose of this is to get each piece of cooked sausage covered in the flour. It keeps it from clumping and is the secret to making lump free sausage gravy.
- Add 2 cups of milk. Begin stirring in at a rapid pace, but not too fast. The milk will begin heating up rapidly and the flour will start thickening up.
- Add 3 cups of cold tap water and bring up to almost a boil, but not bubbling over. Be careful not to scorch the gravy to the bottom of the pot. This will keep the consistency of the flour mixture the same as it thickens.
- Reduce heat after the gravy thickens a bit to a simmer, stirring all the time to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
- Add Salt, Pepper and Cajun Seasoning and stir in well.
- Continue cooking on a simmer to low heat until desired consistency is met.
- Turn off stove top and remove from heat. This will keep it from burning on bottom.
- Serve over home made bisquits for a truly remarkable southern style bisquit and gravy flavor.
Total prep time is about 30 to 35 minutes. Frozen bisquits take about 22 to 23 minutes to cook. If you start them both at the same time, you will be ready with the gravy when the bisquits come out of the oven.
Ok. Know your hungry by now. Go ahead and get after it. Your kids and family will really enjoy this treat.
