Biscuits and Gravy

I love a bargain and I love to cook! Recently I found 2-pound sausage logs marked down for 99-cents each; this sausage sells for almost $5 at regular price. On the same day and at the same store I found whole milk, which was to expire in two days, marked down to $1.50 per gallon. I purchased a total of 11 sausage logs (22-pounds) and 2 gallons of milk. Now I had the makings for a lot of sausage gravy!

Bright and early the next morning I began cooking the sausage, 4-pounds at a time. I turned this into gravy and set to the side to cool. I then started the next 4-pounds of sausage to cooking and continued this until I had cooked a total of 3 batches. As the gravy cooled it was put into zip lock bags for the freezer.
Now I am well stocked in gravy for quit some time and the other sausage logs were put into the freezer for cooking into patties or for using on pizza.

When it is time for breakfast I put the biscuits in the oven to cook.
My frozen gravy is put in a pan with a small amount of water to thaw.
If the gravy is too thick I simply add a little milk until it is the consistency I like. Homemade biscuits and gravy just can’t be beat!

YUM! Here in Texas, we put gravy on anything that doesn't move!
