How to Make Skillet Biscuits and Gravy
- 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.)
- Then, add your breakfast sausage and break it up with a wooden spoon. Cook until sausage is a golden brown and fully done.
- Next, stir in the flour, salt, and the pepper. Keep cooking until the meat is done.
- 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.
- Prepare the Bisquick mix, then drop biscuits by spoonfuls on top of the warm sausage gravy. Bake until biscuits begin to turn golden brown.
- Brush biscuits with melted butter and serve immediately.

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

- 3 to 3 ½ cups whole milk
- 2 ¼ cups Bisquick original

- Crumble sausage with 2 tablespoons of butter into a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Cook over medium high heat until completely browned and thoroughly cooked.
- Stir in the flour, salt and the pepper until combined, continue to cook for a minute or so, continuing to stir so it doesn’t stick.

- In a medium bowl, mix together the Bisquick and the milk until a soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls onto the top of the gravy. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
