This recipe for biscuits and gravy is sponsored by Ovation TV and the new show Southern Uncovered With the Lee Bros. Recipe, images, and opinions are my own.
I grew up in Northern California – pretty much as far from the South as you can get. I grew up cooking alongside my mom – we made lots of dishes with a Mexican flair, cookies, casseroles, pastas. But not much Southern cooking.
Somehow, though, I ended up married to a Tennessee boy. So when I was challenged to cook a Southern-inspired recipe here on Better in Bulk, I turned to him and asked what good home cooked Southern recipe HE wanted me to cook.
When he suggested biscuits and gravy, I hesitated for a few minutes. To me, biscuits and gravy are almost too iconically Southern. I wanted to be a little bit more unique. If I hadn’t already blogged about my #1 favorite Southern dish – Black Eyed Peas and Sausage – a few years ago, I would have made that (go check it out…it’s a family favorite)
I decided to go ahead and cook the biscuits and gravy for him (he asked so nicely)…and in the end, they turned out so good that I had to share them, cliche or not.
I didn’t know what I was missing.
Whether you’re a Southern at heart (or at stomach??) or a biscuits and gravy novice like me, you have got to try this recipe!

My husband is a biscuits and gravy nut! Thanks for sharing on our #livingwithstyle link party – I may actually take a stab at this now. ;) Please join us again tomorrow!

I’ve never really tried Biscuits and Gravy, but it looks so comforting. I’m not a big fan of sausage, so I think maybe some mushrooms would work well in its place. That or some ground turkey.
My oldest was born is ’96 and my youngest in 2005, so our families are not too different! Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! Good luck mastering biscuits and gravy!

I’m a southern girl, and I’ve never actually made biscuits and gravy. (hangs head in shame) But we do love it so I aim to master it. :)
Oh, and I’m a mom of five, too. My oldest was born in ’92 and we’re planning her wedding, and my youngest was born in 2005. We wish we’d had more! ;)

This looks delicious! My family loves to order biscuits and gravy when we’re out for breakfast. Now I can try to make my own!
LOL! Ok….that makes a little more sense. And in that case, I’ve eaten mashed potatoes both ways! :)
Heidi Robbins says
Hahaha! That’s what I meant! :)
Baked potatoes with gravy? I’ve never heard of doing that! Of course, I love mashed potatoes with gravy…
Heidi Robbins says
I’m so not a gravy person but by husband is. He was astonished to discover that I grew up eating baked potatoes with just butter and salt ;)

This looks delicious! My kids love biscuits and gravy but I am no good at making home made gravy so I don’t make it often. I will have to give this a try.
Betsy Barnes says
I love this recipe. I live in the south, however, have never attempted to make this gravy. I think it’s time I give it a try :)
