Biscuit & Gravy Bites- Brooke

Messy, gooey gravy. Soggy biscuits. Old-fashioned plates and forks. There's got to be a better way! And so, introducing a revolution in biscuit and gravy eating...

Biscuit and Gravy Bites

4 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups milk
1 package of 8 large refrigerated biscuits
1 lb. package country sausage

Sausage gravy directions:
Cook sausage over medium heat until browned. Drain on paper towels. Remove excess grease from pan and discard, but leave crusty meat bits. Add butter to pan. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk all at once. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Turn off heat and add sausage.

(At this point, it's a good idea to have some extra, cooked biscuits on hand and go ahead and feed your hungry family. Then you can go back to the test kitchen.)

Assembly instructions:
Flatten a refrigerated biscuit with your hands, and spread it out a bit. Place a small scoop of sausage gravy on the round. Fold the other half over, sealing in the gravy, and flatten the edges with a fork. Gently place them on a cookie tray and bake according to biscuit package directions until browned.

Eat them with your hands and enjoy the freedom of plate-less, fork-less biscuits and gravy. I have to say, ours came out perfect! We were concerned that there might be too much biscuit and not enough gravy, but they were yummy.

According to the package directions, the biscuit dough should not be frozen. So these could be prepared in advance, but could only be stored in the refrigerator.


Lee: "Appropriately bite-size. Still biscuit-and-gravy-like. Good for the bus stop, I'd think."

Alex: "Yeah, I could definitely eat this at the bus stop."

Emma: (sounding surprised) "It's good! Good job, Mama."
