Tuesdays with Dorie: Sweet Cream Biscuits Breakfast Style

TWD again! Wow the week sure goes fast! Melissa of Love At First Bite chose Sweet Cream Biscuits. When we have biscuits here (which isn't often), we've got to make them with sausage gravy! I also made them into breakfast sandwiches for the kids, since they are not so big on the gravy.

Do you know I am not a big fan of biscuits? I always think they are dry and get stuck in my mouth, lol. But I do like them when they're hot with butter and honey! These were so good, light and fluffy. Since I made so much gravy (warning it makes lots) I made another batch of biscuits the next morning, only because I wanted another sausage and egg sandwich!

Hot Biscuits with Honey & Butter

Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches (this was my fave!)
scrambled egg, cheese, sausage pattie, biscuit

Remember Dorie's Sweet Potato biscuits? I loved those! We've also made her buttermilk biscuits before. Go ahead pick any of these recipes, they are all good and easy to make! I bet you'll be having biscuits soon!

Sausage Gravy
found here, makes lots!

1 pound breakfast pork sausage
1 Cup flour
3 Cups milk, warmed
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp rubbed sage

Brown sausage in large skillet over medium heat. Drain, reserving 2 TBL of drippings. Place sausage aside. Add reserved drippings to skillet and whisk in flour until blended. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth; add in seasonings (you could add to your liking). Return to heat, until thick (may need to add a little more milk if it becomes too thick). Stir in sausage. Serve with hot biscuits.

Head on over to Melissa's blog, she will have the recipe for you!
*UPDATE: I also forgot to say that I used AP flour & cake flour for mine, as Dorie also mentioned in the recipe. I did also post about how I got them to rise, in the comments below. =)

Drool, Drool, Drool!!!! Stooop!!! You're killing me! Now, I've gotta make these biscuits three more times for each idea!!! Awesome!

I think those are lovely biscuits!! I don't like "gummy" biscuits much either, which is what most baking mixes turn out and what lots of people use and think biscuits are! Not so!! Follow a few tips, make them from scratch with the right kind of flour and they'll be light and fluffy and no place near gummy.

These look perfect and I'm a HUGE fan of sausage gravy of course, but that sausage, egg and cheese one is making me extremely hungry for biscuits right now!!

I'm not typically a biscuit fan, but if it's warm and covered in honey...I'm there! Lovely biscuits!

Mary said...

Your biscuits are gorgeous--so tall! And thanks for posting the recipe for sausage gravy--I've never had this and I may need to try it. All your biscuit toppings look delicious:)

Yours look a mile high. How DID you do that? My husband would go for the gravy. But I'm with you. Not a huge biscuit lover.

Thanks guys! Well I didn't really do anything to get them to rise so tall, they were maybe 2" tall? I do try to keep my baking powder fresh (throw out old stuff & buy new more often), and I read in the P&Qs to sit them closer together on the baking sheet. So I put a dozen together on 1/2-3/4 of a regular size baking sheet. I also didn't mix the dough too much.
