I am sure everyone has at least one person in their life who loves this dish! Holy cow do I! My whole family goes hog wild for this breakfast and really…I could take it or leave it, but…when I want to make them happy I make this dish.
This past Father’s Day was pretty special as our kids are all home now and it was a pretty special day. Our daughter hasn’t celebrated Father’s Day in over 8 years so she wanted to make him his favorite dish. Later for dinner, our son made him his favorite appetizer. The one an only 7 layer dip which he got a surprise after we devoured the beautiful dish.
The biscuits are really DROP DEAD awesome! Seriously! I have tried many recipes but this one beats them all. How do I know? Because my man adored them and said, “hang onto this one hon!” So I did!
Ok…a little sidetrack there with the whole plate which led to the dinner menu, which too was fabulous. But for now, on with the beginning of our special day…

- Cut in butter. I cut them into cubes to help. Add shortening again blending and cutting in well.

Cook sausage until fully done. Add your milk and heat for 2-3 minutes. Slowly sprinkle in flour stirring as you do. Add seasonings and you are ready to pour over those warm biscuits!
This dish really is the best we have ever come up with and believe me…we have tried a ton of varieties over the years.
Enjoy…and let me know what you think!
Love deeper, talk sweeter,
