Sausage gravy poured over biscuits

NOM - Homemade biscuits & gravy

Trying to be better at cooking from scratch

Ate this at Home on , and noted Turned out great. Froze some to give to Josh & Kris.

I've posted the sausage gravy recipe I follow here before. This was only the second time I've made the biscuits from scratch though. For something so "simple" it can still be quite stress inducing.

I followed the directions from Sugar Spun Run's video. Her instructions were clear and concise. Good tip was putting the butter in the freezer for 10-20 minutes, then grating it.

I don't bother with pressing out rounds. Just use a knife to divide the dough into 6 squares.



  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (very cold)
  • ¾ cup of milk


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425Β°F
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl
  3. Grate in cold butter, mix with a fork until it looks like a course crumble
  4. Stir in milk, with spoon, until dough gets "shaggy"
  5. Flour a surface (and your hands) and turn out the dough
  6. Fold, turn 90Β°, fold again. Repeat this about 6 times using only your hands
  7. Form into a rectangle (about 1" thick) and cut / press out biscuits
  8. Cook for about 15 minutes
