Biscuits and Gravy

We just got back from a wonderful camping trip with friends, and Chef Tom offered to make breakfast for everyone on Saturday.  He made his famous Biscuits & Gravy dish (a favorite of ours.)  Since we already blogged Camp Biscuits a while back, we’ll just direct you to that page for the biscuit recipe.  It’s the sausage gravy (below) that really makes this dish.  These are perfect for camping or any old time you want, and they are very filling if you’ve got a large crowd to feed!   No they are not low-cal or vegetarian, but you can use whatever kind of sausage you prefer (i.e. turkey sausage, tofu sausage, etc.) to lighten them up a bit.  
Enjoying our Biscuits & Gravy breakfast in the campground

1 lb. of ground pork sausage
1 tbl. vegetable oil
1/3 cup all purpose flour
good dash of ground black pepper
pinch of salt
½ of a medium onion, chopped
3 cups whole milk
Tom's famous Camp Biscuits!

·        Cook your CampBiscuits as directed and keep warm in a low oven
·        Put the sausage in a large skillet and break it up with a fork
·        Add the vegetable oil and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until no longer pink
·        Add the chopped onions and continue cooking and stirring until the sausage is thoroughly cooked
·        Reduce heat to medium-low and slowly stir in the flour
·        Continue cooking while stirring constantly about 4-5 minutes until the flour begins to slightly darken
·        Pour in half of the milk and stir or whisk until it starts to thicken
·        Add the remaining milk (you might want to adjust the milk measurement to get the thickness you like)
·        Split your biscuits in half with a fork and pour the hot sausage gravy over the biscuit halves
·        Serve hot and enjoy!
