|My Role Models - Grandma Lois (On the left, in black) |
and her sisters
I have not had the opportunity of working with Grandma Lois yet on perfecting some of my cooking and recipe skills that women of their generations inherently seem to posses. However, I have done experimenting of my own to find a recipe for B&Gs that I feel confidently enough competing with those monumental women. So please test my theory and decided for yourself...
Jess' Biscuits & Gravy:
1 lb ground pork sausage
1 Tbsp Butter PLUS 3 Tbsp (total 4)
3 Tbsp flour
2 1/2 C. milk
S & P to taste
-Brown ground sausage with 1 Tbsp butter.
-Pour in milk and stir constantly. (High heat helps gravy thicken)
-Continue to stir on high heat until gravy becomes thick and bubbly. Remove from heat. Add Salt & Pepper to taste.
|This is round 2, just some seconds... no big deal.|
-I have yet to find a solid biscuits recipe that I like, so to save on time I use store bought pop canister biscuits, still yummy and buttery.
-Use Turkey sausage
-Use whole wheat flour
-Use skim milk
*If your gravy fails to thicken, mix a “paste” of 2 Tablespoons flour with 3 Tablespoons of water. Stir the mixture into your gravy, little bits at a time until the gravy thickens to desired consistency. Do NOT sprinkle flour directly into the gravy. That’s how lumpy gravy is made. :)
