I shared this recipes a few weeks ago while on Facebook Live, and have received several emails requesting it, so finally took time to share how simple it is!

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cans of biscuits
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp minced garlic

Instructions

  1. Preheat the over to 350 degrees and grease loaf pan.
  2. Melt one stick of butter in a large bowl.
  3. Combine Italian seasoning and minced garlic to the melted butter.
  4. Cut biscuits into quarters and add to the butter mixture.
  5. Stir well so all the biscuits are covered with the butter mixture and pour into loaf pan.
  6. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until brown.  Enjoy!!

Margaret Ann’s Biscuits & Sausage Gravy Recipe

My sweet friend Margaret Anne was gracious enough to visit this morning, and made quite possibly the best biscuits and gravy I’ve ever eaten to share with you. 

 

good. gravy. 😉


We met at Bible Study earlier this year, and the minute I heard her sweet Southern accent I felt all-of-a-sudden-at-ease in a group of women who were completely new to me.

 

Isn’t it funny how a kind voice can do that?

 

And once we got to talking, I realized she cared about so many things that I just loved too.

 

Margaret Ann’s been a wife, mom, teacher, realtor, culinary school professor, chef . . . and she’s even owned two restaurants in Rome, Georgia.

 

In fact, one of the scenes from the movie Sweet Home Alabama was filmed in her restaurant Magretta Hall. 😉

I knew you would love Margaret Ann too, so I was thrilled when she offered to do a few “cooking classes” with us here on PPP. 

 

Last week in the Dinner’s Done Facebook group she taught us how to make omelets (I learned so much from her!), and today she’s showing us how to make homemade biscuits and gravy.

 

Or as she calls it, ” thickening gravy.”

 

That you can lather with a little butter too. 😉

 

Honestly? They were all just a little heaven sent. 😉

 

The biscuits and gravy were perfection.

 

And if it were up to me, you would come right over to my kitchen and we’d let her serve us up biscuits and gravy all day long.

 

A girl can dream, right? 😉

If you’d like to make biscuits and gravy too, here’s what you’ll need to get started:

 

(Note: I DEFINITELY recommend watching the video to see all of her tips – I had no idea the importance of incorporating the shortening, and she had so many tricks that I’ve never read in a cookbook. Thank you Margaret Ann!)

Margaret Ann’s Biscuits & Sausage Gravy Recipe

*Makes a small batch of about 8 biscuits, but doubles beautifully.

Biscuit Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/3 Cup of Crisco Shortening (or softened butter works too!)
  • 3/4 Cups of Buttermilk (or 3/4 cups of milk mixed with 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice, let sit on the counter for 15 minutes to sour the milk)

 

 

Biscuit Directions:

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients
  2. Cut the shortening or butter into the dry mix with a pastry cutter (or you can use a couple butter knives if you don’t have a pastry cutter)
  3. Work the dough until there are no chunks of shortening left (watch video for exactly how long to cut the dough)
  4. Add buttermilk, and stir into the mixture with your hand until you have a nice dough
  5. Sprinkle a little flour onto a clean surface and place the dough in the middle
  6. Knead the dough with the palms of your hands (not using fingers) by pushing it down a few times and then folding it in half.  Repeat 4 or 5 times and then pat it into a mound.
  7. Roll out to a thickness of about 3/4″
  8. Tap a cookie or biscuit cutter in flour and cut out the biscuits (Number will vary depending on the size of your cutter)
  9. Place on a greased or sprayed cookie sheet and brush a little melted butter on top
  10. Bake between 400 – 450 for 10-15 minutes.  *Because all ovens are different you’ll want to just check for when they look just right to you!

Gravy Ingredients:

  • 1 Lb of Pork Breakfast Sausage (Jimmy Dean is Margaret Ann’s favorite)
  • 4 Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Cup Milk

Gravy Directions:

  1. Cook and crumble the sausage over medium heat (Do NOT drain)
  2. Turn heat down to medium-low
  3. Sprinkle a couple tablespoons of flour over the sausage and stir it in, cooking it for another minute
  4. Add 1/2 Cup of milk and stir around as it begins to thicken up.
  5. To stretch your gravy further or thin it a little, just keep adding more milk until it’s how you like.

 

The best part is that by making them from scratch, you’ll save a bundle, most likely using everything you have right in your pantry. 

I’m hoping I can get her tricks down soon and make a batch for my bunch (but for today, we have just a few biscuits all ready to try for after school snacks.)

Let’s just call it their lucky day. 😉

Let me know how the recipe goes for you, and share any other tips in the comments. I can’t wait to hear from you!

Here are some tools that you may want to pick up if you plan to make biscuits often:

Non-Stick Pastry and Baking Mat

Pastry Cutter and Biscuit Cutters

Rolling Pin

Flour Sifter

Nonstick Cookie Sheet

Wilton 3-Tier Cooling Rack

What is an Instant Pot?

An Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker that takes the “scary” factor out of pressure cooking and makes the job of cooking fast and easy!  It speeds up cooking by 2~6 times using up to 70% less energy, and, above all, produces nutritious healthy food in a convenient and consistent fashion.

If you need a support group for getting dinner on the table (especially using our Slow cookers and Instant Pots!) – come by and join our Dinner’s Done Facebook Group ~ so much great wisdom and encouragement there!

I ran around all morning to doctor appointments, and am just now sitting back down to my computer but Mrs. Potts is hard at work and our kitchen smells fantastic.

 

That gives me just a ridiculous amount of joy. 🙂

We really did eat McDonald’s every single night (Countertop Cooking Challenge Day 17)

Do you need to get dinner DONE?

motionmailapp.com

TODAY ONLY GET FEBRUARY AND MARCH MENU PLANS WHEN YOU PAY FOR JUST ONE MONTH ~ ORDER NOW TO GET THE BEST PRICE!!!***

 

Do you have struggle with dinner on the table?

Does grocery shopping and menu planning and then actually getting dinner on the table completely overwhelm you each week?

Do you throw food away each week because you didn’t really have a plan in place to begin with?

Do you spend too many nights going through the drive thru because you just can’t get dinner done at home? 

I can help. 

As I shared last week on Facebook live, I grew up in a home where we ate dinner at McDonald‘s 7 nights a week. 

I’m not kidding.

(Okay, sometimes there was a little variety and we’d swing through Wendy’s or Arby’s, but basically my mom drove us 4 kids through the drive-thru each night because that was the easiest way she knew to get dinner done.)

The truth is, my mom was a good mom who was trying her very best as a single mom raising 4 kids on her own. But at the end of the day she just didn’t have the energy to figure dinner out, so through the drive-thru we’d go.

 

This was me as a junior in high school when I was probably around 190 pounds – it was all I could do not to photoshop this picture to make me look just a little better, but I’m keeping it real here ~ yikes! 

 

By age 18 I ballooned up to 225 pounds because I just hadn’t learned how to eat correctly, but I’m determined that’s not going to happen to your family.

 

***That’s why this whole menu planning thing is so very important to me.*** 

 

The truth is, getting dinner done isn’t easy, but I really believe this tool can change how dinner looks in your home.

 

Because this matters. 

 

Getting dinner done is so important for so very many reasons, beyond just getting dinner done.

This month as we’ve done the Countertop Cooking Challenge, I hope you’ve been encouraged and inspired to get yummy meals on the table for your family.

 

And I love that I can give you the tools my own mom didn’t have to easily get dinner done.

 

Today’s the last day to get access to the Eat at Home Cooks Menu Plans for 25% off regular price. (Use the code COUNTERTOP at checkout.)

And if you’ve been cooking for what feels like forever but just need a few new fresh ideas, I really think this might be just for you.

Freezer Meals Made on Monday

I really never expected to love freezer cooking, but goodness, this week these recipes have been a life saver for me as I’ve been able to get dinner done so smoothly each morning this week.

Yesterday’s Maple Apple Pork in the Slow Cooker

I can’t even wait to try the Slow Cooker Chicken Philly Sandwiches (they sound so good!) and doing the prep work ahead of time helped so much.

Today on Facebook Live I also made these wooden signs (see where I use them next week.) I love that having dinner take care of makes room in my day to do things I really love (like crafting!), so this was a big win for me today. 🙂
