Biscuits and Gravy

This family-favorite biscuit and gravy recipe comes together in less than 20 minutes.

We love sleeping in on the weekends, then enjoying a hearty brunch. One favorite is biscuits and sausage gravy, fruit, and a salad. Sausage gravy is a traditional Southern breakfast dish in the U.S.

You don’t have to live in the South to enjoy this delicious breakfast fare. The recipe I am sharing today is quick, easy, and hearty. Another bonus is that you can use store-bought biscuits, like Pillsbury.

If you’ve never tried making gravy or thought it is difficult, try this step-by-step recipe. You might be surprised how easy this is!

Biscuits and gravy is a great option when you need to feed a large family or guests on weekends or holidays.

  • 1 lbs. pork breakfast sausage
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, plus 2 tbsp. to brush over the finished biscuits
  • 1 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. finely sliced fresh sage
  • 1 tbsp. finely sliced chives
  • 1 16 oz. can Jambo buttery biscuits


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line and spray 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.

Then arrange biscuits 1-2 inches apart on the baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown for about 15-18 minutes.

Once the biscuits are done, brush the top with melted butter.

In the meantime, heat a large electric skillet over medium-heat. Then, brown the sausage for 3 minutes.

Next add the butter and onion. Cook for another 3 minutes. Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well and cook for 40-50 seconds.

Add flour, stir well, and cook for 3 minutes. Make sure to stir often.


Gradually add milk and heavy cream stirring continuously until the gravy thickens and comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, then simmer and stir for 2 more minutes.

Stir in the sage and chives. Turn the heat off, then taste for seasoning.


When you are ready to serve, split biscuits in half. Place 2 halves on a plate. Top with desired amount of gravy. Sprinkle some chives over the gravy and enjoy!
