Blogging from A to Z: Drop Biscuits and Sausage Gravy


  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1-1/2 stick (3/4 Cup) Cold Butter, Cut Into Pieces
  • 1-1/4 cup Buttermilk
    Set that oven of yours to 400 degrees.
    Add the first three ingredients into a bowl, probably a large one.  Add the pieces of butter and use a pastry cutter to cut them into the dry ingredients.  Slowly add in the buttermilk until the dough sticks together and no longer crumbles apart.
    Put a large spoonful on to a baking sheet and stick it in the oven for 15 minutes or so.
    Sausage Gravy
  • 1 pound Breakfast Sausage, Hot Or Mild
  • 1/3 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 4 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Black Pepper, More To Taste
    For the sausage, I prefer the maple flavored ones.  It brings that little sweet kick in.  Put the sausage in a skillet and brown it up.  Once it’s all brown, reduce the heat a little and add some flour and allow the sausage to soak it up. Add a little more.  Pour in the milk and keep stirring.  Simmer for around 10 minutes, stirring consistently.  Don’t let it get stuck on the pan.  Add the salt and pepper to taste.  If it gets too thick, you can always add more milk.
    Serve the gravy over the biscuits you just pulled out of the oven.


  1. I have never heard of drop biscuits, but I'm getting ready for a snack over here, so I'd be willing to give it a try..!?

  2. I have done drop biscuits in a chicken and dumplings version. My hubby loves biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Nicely done.
