Kia's Biscuits and Gravy

Ingredients

Biscuits:
1 1/2 cups Nash’s soft white wheat flour
1 1/2 cups Nash’s red wheat wheat flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 stick (3/4 cup) cold/frozen butter, grated
1 1/4 cup buttermilk or raw milk 

Sausage gravy:
1 pound Nash’s breakfast sausage
1/3 cup white or red wheat flour
4 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper 

Instructions

For biscuits:

Preheat oven to 400° F.

1. Put flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add grated butter and mix thoroughly with your fingers. Drizzle in the milk and incorporate it with a wooden spoon, until dough just comes together and is no longer crumbly.

2. Drop in clumps on baking sheets. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. 

For gravy:

1. With your finger, tear small pieces of sausage and put them in a single layer in a large heavy skillet. Brown over medium-high heat until no longer pink.

2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Sprinkle in half the flour and stir so that the sausage soaks it all up, then add a little more until just before the sausage looks too dry. Stir it around and cook it for another minute or so, then pour in the milk, stirring constantly.

3. Cook the gravy, stirring frequently, until it thickens, about 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle in salt and pepper and continue cooking until thickened. If it gets too thick too soon, add 1/2 cup milk or more.

4. Taste and adjust seasonings. Spoon sausage gravy over warm biscuits and serve immediately.
