Ingredients

Sausage Gravy:

1 tablespoon butter

1 log package sausage (recommended: Jimmy Dean)

2 cups heavy cream

1 teaspoon hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup maple syrup

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Biscuits:

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup cold butter

1 cup whole milk

All-purpose flour, for dusting

Cream, for glazing

Directions

  1. For the sausage gravy:
  2. In a large heavy bottom pot melt the tablespoon of butter and brown the sausage for about 5 minutes. Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Once at a simmer, add the hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and maple syrup. Simmer the gravy for 15 minutes and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. For the biscuits:
  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  5. In a bowl sift together the dry ingredients. Add the butter and incorporate the flour into it until the texture is consistent. Pour the milk into the flour mixture and mix with a fork until the dough begins to come together.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out until it's about 1-inch thick. Cut the dough vertically and then horizontally, yielding approximately 15 square biscuits. Lay the biscuits out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Glaze the top of each biscuit with a little bit of cream and place the sheet in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the biscuits turn golden in color.
  7. Assemble by placing a biscuit on a plate and covering it with about 1/2 a cup of the sausage gravy.
