The Best Southern Biscuits and Gravy Recipe Ever

Biscuits and Gravy is a southern breakfast staple, and one of my favorite breakfasts growing up. I’ve lived all over, and the b’s and g’s in other states just don’t compare to the way we’ve made them at home for years. So I’m here to show you how to make The Best Southern Biscuits and Gravy Recipe Ever. 

The biggest mistake people make is draining the grease. I’ve even seen people blot it. Come on y’all – you’re making a southern breakfast and you’re just gonna add another type of fat to make up for the grease you could’ve used. Keep the grease, you’ll have a richer flavor. The second biggest mistake is under seasoning. Nothing worse than chunky gravy with zero flavor, it’s like eating glue.

I’m gonna save homemade biscuits for another day, since they’re deserving of a post all their own. Today we’re focusing on the main player here, sausage gravy. The best store bought biscuits are the bag of frozen southern style biscuits, not the cans. These are pretty good.

A few pointers as you make this:

 
  • Start the biscuits before you start the gravy, they’ll take about 20 minutes to bake.
  • Set your butter out to soften, and slice it so it softens quicker. 
  • Have a separate skillet ready so you can fry your eggs right before plating.
  • Don’t forget the pepper!
  • Taste gravy before salting, sausage is pretty salty so you’ll want to account for that.
