A Farm Breakfast

I have this thing about The Darlings or The Farmer, being hungry. Why?...I don't know. So each morning I try to make a breakfast, that my Mother would say, "sticks to their ribs!" Now if you know The Farmer, you will know that one of his most favorite breakfasts in the entire world is....Biscuits and Gravy. So I really put some time into finding the perfect recipe. It is a combination of several, and it is a keeper! It has become a favorite in our home, especially on Saturday mornings, when we are all together for breakfast.
Biscuits and Gravy - Farm Style
Drop Biscuits
2 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 T. sugar
1/3 c. shortening
1 c. milk
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl, cut in shortening and then add milk. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet or onto parchment (my favorite) Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.
Gravy
1 pound of breakfast sausage
2 T. onion, diced
6 T. flour
2 cans of evaporated milk
1 c. water
1/4 t. ground black pepper
1/4 salt
Cook sausage in a large skillet until no longer pink. Add diced onion and cook until soft. Add flour, stir in well and allow to brown slightly. Add milk, water, salt and pepper. Cook until it comes to a boil and then turn off heat. Add a little more flour to thicken if needed.
