How to Cook a Fast, Delicious Weekend Breakfast

by Cupcakes & Crowbars ™

Pressed for time? Tired of the same old cereal and oatmeal? Whip up this quick idea on a weekend morning! Kids & grown ups alike love it!

Supplies

  • Pilsbury Grands biscuits
  • Package sausage links
  • 2 Tablespoons All purpose flour
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Start cooking your sausages according to package directions. I used honey & brown sugar flavor this time. The family may have a bit of a sweet tooth.

    Step 2

    Open up your biscuits! This morning, I used some Pilsbury Butter Flavor Grands that were on sale - any old biscuits will do!

    Step 3

    Roll them out to about 1/2 inch thickness.

    Step 4

    Yum! Now the sausages are done! Place on some paper towels to drain & cool off for a minute or two. Leave the pan on, we're about to make gravy!

    Step 5

    You need about two tablespoons of fat to start gravy - I didn't have that much from the sausages, so I added a tablespoon of butter to the hot pan.

    Step 6

    Now SLOWLY add a couple tbsp of milk. If you've never done this before, be careful - it may steam up quickly! Use your whisk to scrape the bits off the bottom of the pan.

    Step 7

    Now, the flour - to avoid lumps, I put mine in asieve and lightly tap the side against my hand, sifting a tiny amt into the pan at once - and KEEP WHISKING!! I alternate milk & flour until gone.

    Step 8

    Turn your heat to medium, whisking frequently until thickened. My gravy isn't ever exact - I keep extra milk & flour handy to add as needed, until I get the consistency I want. Salt & pepper to taste.

    Step 9

    While your gravy is simmering, place one sausage on each flattened biscuit. Here's the fun part: sausages are usually 14 in a pack; biscuits, 8 in a tin. So freeze half your sausage, or buy two tins.

    Step 10

    Roll up, burrito style. Place on a cookie sheet & bake at 350* for 18 minutes.

    Step 11

    Mmm thick delicious gravy.

    Step 12

    Serve to your salivating family. Or just yourself. I won't judge.

    Step 13

    So. Freaking. Good. Dip them in that fabulous gravy you made. Or skip the gravy & drizzle syrup over them. Or be a purist & just eat them naked. The food, I meant. The other is a personal choice.

    Step 14

    Gratuitous Extra Gravy Shot. No reason. It's just ... Gravy!! Yum!
