Per special request, this Memorial Day breakfast of biscuits and gravy hit the spot. MIA - the fruit salad, which is just out of range in these pictures.

Browned sausage in cream sauce is to die for, but what takes this dish over the top are the homemade biscuits. I make biscuits all the time, and I cannot imagine buying the canned ones. Mine are buttery and flaky and crisp around the edges. Homemade biscuits have appeared here many times over the years. You can find the recipe here.

To make biscuits and gravy…

Brown one pound of your favorite breakfast sausage, breaking it down into crumbles as it cooks. Stir 1/3 cup all purpose flour into the cooked sausage. Continue cooking and stirring for another minute. Add 2 cups of milk and ½ teaspoon black pepper and stir it together until the sauce thickens and gets bubbly. Whisk or stir in more milk (probably at least another cup, depending on how you like it), and simmer until done. The whole process probably takes ten minutes. Taste, and add salt if needed.

Serve over hot biscuits.

This breakfast will feed six people.

My first visit to San Fransisco I of course had to have some traditional It’s- it ice cream, it is an ice cream sandwich with a scoop of ice cream between two oatmeal cookies and dipped in dark chocolate. Although it is Based and manufactured in California you can purchase some in many other places in the US. 🍦🍫
