Herbed Sausage Gravy Over Cheese Biscuits Recipe

The gang at my house loves anything with biscuits, and this oregano flavored sausage gravy is the best we've ever tasted! It's a real favorite with my husband and two toddlers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 8 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 cubes
  • GRAVY:
  • 1/2 pound Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold water

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and oil just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place a pinch of oregano in the center of each biscuit; top with a cheese cube.
  • 2. Moisten edge of dough with water and pull up over cheese, forming a pouch; pinch tightly to seal. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in milk and oregano. Combine the flour and water until smooth; add to sausage mixture. Bring to boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. For each serving, spoon about 1/3 cup gravy over two biscuits. Yield: 4 servings.
