Equipment

  • Mixer
  • baking sheet
  • Glass or biscuit cutter
  • large skillet
  • Pastry brush

Ingredients
  

Buttermilk Biscuits

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup coconut oil softened
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder a level tablespoon
  • 1 tsp. salt a level teaspoon
  • cups buttermilk
  • ½ stick butter melted

Creamy Sausage Gravy

  • 1 lb pork breakfast sausage cooked and crumbled, do not drain
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • Dash hot sauce

Instructions
 

Buttermilk Biscuits

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • With the mixer on low, combine the dry ingredients and the coconut oil until the mixture resembles course oatmeal and sticks together.
  • Add the buttermilk, and with a spatula gently work it into the mixture. Never knead biscuit dough. The less the dough is handled, the lighter the biscuits will be.
  • Add a splash of milk if the dough is too dry.
  • Sprinkle flour into a cutting board and place the biscuit dough on the cutting board. With your hand, flatten the dough to about an inch thick.
  • With a glass or biscuit cutter, cut the biscuits out and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Melt the butter and brush it all over the tops of the biscuits.
  • Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes until the biscuits are golden brown.

Creamy Sausage Gravy

  • Sprinkle ⅓ cup of flour over the hot sausage crumbles until the crumbles are well coated. This makes the roux that thickens the gravy.
  • With the burner on medium-high, add 3 cups of whole milk to the sausage/flour mixture in the skillet.
  • Add a splash of hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir the gravy continuously on medium-high until it thickens and gets bubbly - about 5 minutes.

Putting it Together

  • On a serving plate, cut a biscuit in half and ladle sausage gravy generously over both halves and serve.

Notes

No need to keep a carton of buttermilk on hand for making biscuits. Make your own buttermilk by adding a 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to sweet milk and let it sit for about a minute to thicken.
