Biscuits And Gravy Recipe

I love a good biscuits and gravy recipe. Who wouldn’t love some flaky buttery biscuits with warm savory gravy? It only takes 45 minutes, but since there are quite a few steps, it might be a good idea to make this ahead of time.

For the biscuits

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter frozen
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegetable shortening frozen
  • 3 tbsp buttermilk blend
  • 3/4 cup water ice-cold
  • 1 medium egg yolk

For the sausage

  • 6 oz 85% lean ground pork
  • 3/4 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1.5 tbsp parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tsp white wine Sauvignon Blanc

For the gravy

  • 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • In a bowl, combine pork, spices, and seasonings (listed in the recipe card), and refrigerate it for 30 minutes, covered.
  • Add cold butter, shortening, flour, buttermilk blend, seasonings to a food processor and pulse. Stop when you see small lumps.
  • Place the mixture in a large bowl. Add cold water and mix well with a fork until a dough forms.
  • Place the dough onto a floured working surface and roll it out. Dust the dough with a little flour if it’s too wet.
  • Use a 4-inch round cutter to cut out four pieces of dough and remove the excess dough. The biscuits come out nicer this way.
  • Slide the tray into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Brush egg yolk onto each biscuit and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a pan. Add the marinated ground pork and cook for 5 minutes or until all of the fat renders out.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir for 1 minute. Pour the milk in and season it with salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat.
  • Sprinkle with cayenne and serve.
