Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

This Sausage Gravy and Biscuits is so simple and delicious. You are going to love this delicious combination for breakfast, brunch, dinner or brinner. My husband is always begging me to make this.

A couple of months ago, we worked with our friends from Shirley J (a local Utah-based company) and introduced you to Mugging (brownies and cakes that you make in a mug in the microwave).

We had such a positive response from you that we wanted to introduce you to a couple of their other products also.

My husband Jared loved big, hearty breakfasts.

I, on the other hand, love cold cereal. Opposites attract, right?

Well, after a killer Halloween party at my parents’ house the other night, the kids had a big sleepover with all their cousins and Jared and I had a lazy morning together.

When we woke up (after a glorious 8 hours of sleep), we decided to cook up one of his favorite breakfasts: Sausage Gravy and Biscuits.

The recipe that we usually make is loaded with butter, whole milk, and lots and lots of sausage. And let me tell you- it sticks to your bones all day.

So, being the wonderful and sweet wife that I am, I told him to relax while I took care of breakfast. I was going to change it up a little bit by using Shirley J’s WhiskBliss in lieu of the milk, butter and flour.

For those of you who have never heard of WhiskBliss before, it is basically a universal cooking base that was invented over 30 years ago and has been used (and loved) by home chefs, restaurants, and businesses all over the world.

It can be used in place of cream sauce, canned-cream soups (we know that there are a lot of you who don’t like using cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soups- this is the perfect substitute), milk, or any other cream sauces that are called for in your favorite recipes.

All that you have to do is add water and whisk away! It can be used to make Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes, Tatertot Casserole, or Broccoli Cheese Soup.

what sides could I serve with this recipe?

We usually just eat this as is, but if you are wanting to make this into a brinner (breakfast for dinner) we recommend eating it with:

    Gravy Ingredients:
  • 1 pound lean turkey sausage (or you could use your favorite sausage)
  • 1 1/2 cups Shirley J Whisk Bliss Original
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Biscuit Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, crumble sausage and cook until browned. Drain drippings from pan. In a large bowl, mix together Whisk Bliss and water until smooth. Pour into the skillet with the sausage crumbles and stir. Add in seasoned salt. Bring gravy mixture to a boil and continue to cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until gravy has thickened.
  3. While waiting for the gravy to cook, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar in a bowl. Cut in the shortening (I just use a regular ol' butter knife to do this) until the mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl, mix together the egg and milk and add to the crumb mixture. Stir until the mixture is moist.
  4. Drop heaping spoonfuls of the dough on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes (or until the biscuits are golden).
  5. Serve biscuits with a large ladle full of gravy spooned on top. Enjoy!

  1. I've never heard of (or seen) WhiskBliss. Living in Canada there are quite a few products that are available in the US that you can't get up here. If I can't use WhiskBliss then I could substitute a mixture of milk, butter and flour...but how much of each?
