My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
Everyone who has ever had breakfast at my parent's house knows that my mom makes the best biscuits and gravy, period. I have never, ever, in my whole life, at any restruant or house, had B&G that tasted better than momma's.
I grew up watching her make it and stuffing my face with it pretty much every Sunday for about 18 years, and I'm still not sick of it. Is this why I was so fat growing up? Maybe, but it was worth it!
The first time Stef came to meet my parents, mom made B&G. It was love at first taste. Now we have to have it every time we go back to visit. The mere mention of heading back to New Albany brings a smile to her face.
Like I said... I've seen my mom make this recipe countless times, so this morning I got up 45 minutes early and tried to make it for myself. I browned a 1 pound log of Bob Evans sausage and set it aside. I added flour and seasonings to the leftover grease and cooked it until it turned brown. Then I added some milk and started stirring. You have to stir it constantly for about 20 minutes while adding more and more milk, making sure not to scorch it. I gave it a try and added salt and pepper to taste. Lastly, after the base had thickened up to the proper consistency, I added about 3/4 of the sausage back in.
About that time, the Grands biscuits were turning gold in the oven below, so I grabbed one and split it open. I put two spoons of sausage gravy on each half and sat down outside to give it a try. It tasted pretty darn good. Aww... who am I kidding, it was awesome! But, as good as it was, it still paled in comparison with the original recipe. I guess I'll just have to watch momma make it a few more times.
