Country Style Gravy and Biscuits

This is one of Olivia's favorite breakfasts!  The biscuits are super easy.  This recipe comes from Mary Ann Wilcox.

Country Style Gravy with Sausage
 ½ lb. pork sausage
2 T. chopped onion
5 T. flour
3 cups milk
½ tsp. sage (optional)
¼ tsp salt
Pepper, to taste

In a large skillet over medium heat cook the sausage and onion until sausage is no longer pink.  Drain, reserving 2-3 Tbls drippings in skillet.  Stir flour into sausage and drippings until blended.  Cook and stir until light golden brown.  Gradually stir in milk and seasonings.  Bring to a boil and cook and stir until desired thickness.

I got this biscuit mix from Mary Ann Wilcox, the lady I have taken many food storage classes from.

Biscuit  Master Mix
12 cup flour
4 T. baking powder
3 c instant powder milk or 1 ½ cups dry non-instant milk powder (cannery)
2 T. salt
2 cups shortening

Blend all ingredients together with mixer, pastry cutter or wire whisk. 

2 cups biscuit mix
2/3 cup water

Mix together to form a soft dough.  It will be a little sticky.  Turn out on counter that has been generously covered with biscuit mix.  Gently knead dough until easy to handle.  Roll out 3/4” thick.  Cut with biscuit cutter dipped in biscuit mix.  Bake 8-10 minutes at 450 degrees until lightly browned.

Tiff's Tips:  I double the biscuit recipe for my family.  Doubled it makes about a dozen biscuits.
