Sausage gravy

This is very popular for breakfast in many southern states, but has spread to almost the entire country. The trick is to getting a very flavorful gravy is to cook the flour and sausage together for a while before adding the milk, totally leaving open for how much browning your prefer. What could be better than to add homemade biscuits for your gravy. They are really easy to make adding a great touch to your meal.

Grandma's Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits

2 1/2 Cup all Purpose Flour (plus a little more for dusting pans)
2 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp Salt
8 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Buttermilk
2 Tbsp Butter melted

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Stir all ingredients together then transfer to a food processor. Cut the butter into cubes and add to flour, pulse 6 to 7 times until mixture resembles course crumbs. Or, cut butter into flour in the mixing bowl, add buttermilk and stir with a fork until it forms a course ball, don't worry if it a bit sticky. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it into rectangle, about 1 inch thick. Fold it over and gently roll it down again. Repeat 6 times. Gently roll out the dough some more, so it forms a rectangle. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Do not twist cutter when cutting, this will crimp the edges of the biscuit causing it to not rise. If you have scraps, form a new rectangle and cut more biscuits. Place biscuits on baking sheet and place in oven. Bake until golden brown, around 10 to 15 minutes. Brush melted butter on top and enjoy. Serves 6 to 8.
