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  Red, White and Blueberry Biscuits

It is the Fourth of July, so I decided to do something a little patriotic. Red jam, white flour and dried blueberries seemed just the ticket for a holiday breakfast.

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 Buttermilk Biscuits

I had bought some buttermilk to make cornbread—which takes only one cup of milk—but all the store had for sale was quarts. What could I do with all of the extra buttermilk? Obviously, biscuits for breakfast.

Karl’s Blackberry Biscuit Hand Pies

I had some blackberries on the counter that were getting a bit worse for time. I thought I would turn them into a quick jam. Then I decided to put the jam into biscuit dough to make hand pies.

Karl’s American Biscuits

For some reason, I have never made biscuits from scratch.  I frequently make scones for breakfast, but I have always depended on Bisquick for biscuits. Part of the reason for this is that I really did not understand the difference between the two. While I was making biscuits for biscuits and gravy, I discovered that they are easy and, by themselves, the are a delicious and versatile bread.

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.

Karl’s Sweet Potato Biscuits with PB&J

Last week Jan had a work lunch that had Sweet Potato Biscuits with PB&J. She brought some leftovers home for us to try. She suggested that this would be a good thing to serve the teenagers on their Thursday movie night.
