Drop Biscuits and Gravy

"We enjoy these flaky biscuits covered with creamy gravy not only for breakfast, but sometimes for dinner," reports Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. Priced at only 27 cents per serving, "It's hard to find a more stick-to-the-ribs meal and at such a low cost," she notes.

  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

    Gravy was very good, but way too peppery for me when going by the recipe. The drop biscuits on the other hand were easy to make but are dry and flavorless. Even with adding cheddar cheese it was still flavorless.

    I was looking for a quick drop biscuit recipe as I didn't want flour all over my counter. It was indeed easy and no counter mess but it lacked flavor. I had added a little more butter than it suggested. Next time I will at least double the butter recipe. I'm sure if I did the gravy I wouldn't notice the non flavor. Maybe I should add Cream of Tartar or Sugar or perhaps cheese next time. They were crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. It doesn't ask you to sift the flower and now I wish I had because that would have helped.

    very easy, I added a bit of paprika and depending on the hotness of sausage, can make it anyway you want!
