Biscuits & Gravy

Here is a great, quick recipe for biscuits and gravy. The trick with the gravy is patience. And stirring. A lot of stirring.

- 2 cups flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 to 1 cup milk

Combine dry ingredients, then cut in shortening. Add milk a little at a time until dough forms. Toss until it isn't sticky anymore, then roll out until 1/2 inch thick. Cut with round floured cutter. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 450 for 8-12 minutes.

- 1 lb ground pork sausage (I used light)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 6 tbsp flour
- 3 1/2 cups milk
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper

Brown sausage, then add butter. Sprinkle flour over the top, mixing in evenly, then add milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce and cook for about 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. It will thicken on it's own while cooking, and more as it cools.
