How to Make Skillet Biscuits and Gravy

  1. Add butter to a hot 10-inch cast iron skillet. (Note, you do not have to use cast iron, any skillet that is oven-safe is fine.)
  2. Then, add your breakfast sausage and break it up with a wooden spoon. Cook until sausage is a golden brown and fully done.
  3. Next, stir in the flour, salt, and the pepper. Keep cooking until the meat is done.
  4. Gradually stir in the milk and let the mixture come to a boil. Simmer a few more minutes until your gravy is thickened and creamy.
  5. Prepare the Bisquick mix, then drop biscuits by spoonfuls on top of the warm sausage gravy. Bake until biscuits begin to turn golden brown.
  6. Brush biscuits with melted butter and serve immediately.

Can You Make This Sausage Gravy Skillet Ahead?

Save even more time when making your biscuits and gravy skillet by making your sausage gravy the night before!

After following the recipe for the gravy, allow it to cool. Add the gravy to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to two days.

Reheat before adding your drop biscuits when you’re ready to eat your skillet biscuits and gravy.

Can You Freeze Sausage Gravy?

Unfortunately, I’ve found that milk-based gravies like this one do not freeze well, as it tends to separate when thawing.

I hope you enjoy our wonderful biscuits and gravy skillet as much as my family does!

  1. This looks fabulous! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the new blog! These are the kind of recipes I want to see. Great idea! Keep them coming.

  3. This looks like a recipe that my whole family will love! Trying it this week!

  4. Do you think this recipe could be modified to add frozen biscuits on top in place of the Bisquick?

    • Hey Hannah, while I haven’t tried it, I’d say if the cook time for the frozen biscuits is close to the cook time for the drop biscuits, it should be fine! I love the frozen Grands! Buttermilk style biscuits, so I’m going to try it too. I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂

  5. Thank you. This looks amazing and easy. Can’t wait to try it.

  6. This is a regular receipt at our house. However I add onions and garlic to my pan before I fry the sausage. My family love the change in taste it brings.

  7. My most favorite comfort meal!! Thank you for making it easier!

  8. Thanks for the recipe. Love the Golden Girls photo after email sign up!! Congrats.

  9. We don’t have Bisquick in South Africa – please share a recipe to make biscuits for this meal.

  10. I am going to fix this for Breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks for sharing
