#200 Biscuits & Gravy (by JoeFoodie)
A special meal for day 200. Homemade cheddar cheese and sage cream biscuits covered in sausage gravy served with scrambled eggs.
The key to good sausage gravy is a cast iron skillet & liberal use of fresh cracked black pepper.
Brown 3/4 of a pound of sausage in the skillet over medium high heat. Once browned (about 8 minutes), remove sausage with slotted spoon. Add 2 tablespoons all purpose flour to skillet with sausage drippings. Whisk until combined. Add 2 cups of whole milk slowly, whisking continuously. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken (around 5-7 minutes). Add black pepper to taste.
Ladle over biscuits & top with fresh cut sage (if available).
