A couple weekends ago I was up early before anyone else was awake and decided to make biscuits and gravy. I had been saving two apple-sage Field Roast sausages specifically for this purpose. First the biscuits:
The recipe is a pretty standard biscuit recipe using Earth Balance and soy milk to make them dairy-free.
This was the first time I actually rolled out the dough and cut out the biscuits. I usually just make drop biscuits because I’m too lazy to cut them out. Surprisingly it didn’t take that long so I’ll probably start cutting them out more often. I did roll most of them a little too thin so I ended up with quite a few biscuits. Next time I’ll make them thicker. The two in the upper right corner of the picture that split in the middle were perfect.
Next up is the gravy. I used a recipe from I Eat Trees that I have made several times. But I like my gravy more soupy and less chunky so I only used two Field Roast sausages where Keri calls for four. I also didn’t have worcestershire sauce so I used a spash of soy sauce and a couple drops of liquid smoke.
The end result:
Lord it was brilliant. Might have been my best homemade biscuits and gravy yet. The apple-sage Field Roast really makes the gravy. You’d have thought I hadn’t eaten for a week the way I scarfed it down. Benzo and I ate every drop of gravy and almost all the biscuits. Serves four? Not in this house. 😉
