Big Homemade Biscuits
recipe source here
3 c. flour 4 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. sugar 1/2 tsp.
1/4 tsp. baking soda 1/2 c. shortening
1/4 c. margarine, softened 1 egg
2/3 c. milk.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Sift your flour with a flour sifter. Add all your ingredients into a large bowl and stir with a spoon. Do not use a mixer. Once it is stirred up, dump onto a floured surface and knead the dough about 20 times gently. Roll out the dough to about 1/4-1/2" thick and cut with biscuit cutter.
Place on an ungreased jelly roll pan or cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Take a stick of margarine and using the end of the stick, smear butter over the top of the biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven. Makes 12 big biscuits.
|3/4 cup flour||2 cups milk|
|3/4-1lb sausage||1/4 teaspoon garlic powder|
|1/4 teaspoon salt||1/4 teaspoon onion powder|
|1/4 teaspoon pepper||1/4 cup oil|
Remove the sausage when fully cooked, but leave all drippings in the skillet. Leaving behind a few small pieces of sausage doesn’t hurt either. At this point, reduce the heat to medium and gradually add flour to the skillet, stirring occasionally until the flour turns light brown.
At this point add milk while stirring and making sure to remove any lumps of flour. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Continue to stir and add milk until the gravy reaches the thickness you desire.
Taste it. Enjoy it. Add seasonings until it’s how you like it.
Now return the cooked sausage crumbles to the gravy. Stir in well, reduce the heat and cook for about 10 minutes. Should the gravy become thicker than desired, simply add more milk to thin the gravy back out the way you want.
Goes great with biscuits.
Now I hope you enjoy this little diddy that will share why it is best to enjoy your biscuit and gravy
