Here's what you need:
For the biscuits I use my Buttermilk Skillet Biscuits recipe
2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup vegetable shortening, cut into cubes (I use butter flavor Crisco)
3/4-1 cup buttermilk (depending on the humidity you might need up to 1 whole cup)
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
4 Tbs. butter, melted
10" Cast Iron skillet
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
In a mixing bowl place the self rising flour. Add the shortening cubes and mix with your fingers until it resembles little peas.
Add the buttermilk and stir with a fork until almost completely incorporated. Use your hands to bring the dough together, making sure you are gentle with the dough.
On a piece of parchment pat the dough into approximately a 9-1/2 " circle. It will be about 3/4" thick.
Pour half the melted butter into the bottom of the skillet and place the biscuit dough on top. Then pour the rest of the melted butter on top and brush to completely coat the biscuits with melted butter.
1 pound Jimmy Dean regular sausage, or any breakfast sausage will do (not links)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2-3 Tbs. flour
3 cup warm milk
While the biscuits are in the oven make the sausage gravy ~ In a large skillet brown the sausage until no longer pink
Add the salt, pepper and flour. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add the milk and stir until mixed well. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and simmer about 10 minutes until the gravy is the desired thickness.
When the gravy is ready serve over the hot buttermilk biscuits. YUM!
Serves 3 - 4
