Today I discovered a new blog.... such beauty there and Deb is quite a gentle and gracious soul.... here Friday Foto.. is exactly what I was looking for today... because we awakened this morning to about 2 inches of the lightest, fluffiest snow.... which is fiercely coming down about an inch an hour! We are expected to get 24+ inches before it is all said and done here in the Blue Ridge! This was my view out the front door at 7am!
I decided right then and there that today wa s a hearty breakfast kind of day... with temps at 21 that felt like 13.. and I knew sweetheart would be out most of the day shoveling a bit as you go... He loves to keep things clear by shoveling a little at a time..earlier this week I shared the recipe for the most delicious biscuits; as seen in this link ... the recipe is embedded within the short video.. and the frozen stick of butter is a fab idea... I hardly had to cut it in... being grated and stirring it in was all I really needed to do...BUT.. the recipe calls for 8T of sugar.... unless you are making sweet biscuits for jam or something or adding cranberries and nuts which btw would be fantastic.... way too much sweetness.. I cut it in half and still a bit too sweet for sausage gravy..My silpat is larger and so I got 12 biscuits in my half sheet pan.
With another 5 minutes to go you brush on melted butter
they didnt rise much, but, so soft and flaky.... Lynn loved them!!!
For the sausage gravy I crumbled and browned about 1/3 lb of sausage.... I like Neese's with sage!
It is so lean I have to add a it of butter. Then I cracked 4 eggs and added some half and half for a scramble...
gently cooking them over a med low heat.... they are fluffy and light!
I sift in about 3 T of flour and actually a bit more butter to get a rue going then I add in 2 cups of milk or more... this is a part that just happens..
and stir over hi temps til nice and thinkened... must stir continually.... it all comes together pretty quickly..
Meanwhile, Lynn is digging around in the driveway..
We have our lovely hearty country breakfast
Yum... reminds me of my Granny and she was a jewel in the kitchen!!!
