Karl’s Biscuits and Chicken Sausage Gravy

I decided that I wanted biscuits and gravy for breakfast, but I did not have my usual sage pork sausage—which wife, Jan, does not really prefer. I did have some Trader Joe’s chicken sausage in the freezer, so I decided to go with that. I did not used to make this kind of thing—except on special weekends—but I just had a hankering.

Karl’s Biscuits and Andouille Sausage Gravy

My wife, Jan, is reading the Longmire mystery series. In the final book, Longmire has biscuits and Andouille sausage gravy. My wife came to me and said, “Make this.” Fortunately, I had some sausages left over from Fat Tuesday’s red beans and rice.

Karl’s Biscuits and Sage Sausage Gravy

Jan’s “old” brother—long story involving 23&Me—and his wife are stopping by for breakfast.  He has few teeth left and they have very standard “American” tastes—so nothing too chewy or exotically spiced. I decided that biscuits and gravy would be to their liking.

Karl’s Biscuits and Gravy

This posting is more of a “what do I do with the leftovers.” When I make a whole roast chicken we will usually eat only about half of it. If I have a left over breast, I will slice it for a Chinese chicken salad. If I have made the pan drippings into gravy, I have the joy of biscuits and gravy for breakfast, today with leftover fruit salad.

Karl’s Biscuits and Beef Jerky Gravy

More than forty years ago, I visited my second cousins in “Pleasant Valley,” Arizona. While I was there I had one of the most memorable meals of my life, biscuits and beef jerky gravy served with a side of fresh pinto beans. While biscuits and gravy is a standard Southern/Western dish, I have never had—before or since—as good as I had that day.
