Home-Style Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

My mother-in-law introduced me to her hamburger gravy, and I modified it slightly. We have this every weekend. —Michele Bapst, Jacksonville, North Carolina

    Your are all being to judgmental!! This recipe is great. Everyone that I serve it to loves it. Yes it is a short cut version. If you want to make the sausage from scratch the and biscuits from scratch, go for it. You don't have to use "canned" biscuits or store bought sausage.

    I agree with the reviewer who questioned using canned biscuits and packaged gravy mix - why would a cooking site even print this? Both are so simple to make from scratch. I’m disappointed in Taste of Home!

    I followed the link in the email to see how this recipe differed from my grandma's. A lot! I didn't figure the sausage was made by hand like grandma did, however I thought the biscuits and gravy would be. They're so easy too! Oh, well....I'll continue with grandma's.

    This is my shortcut recipe, which my husband loves! I use Jimmy Dean hot breakfast sausage instead.

    If her mother in law introduced her to this hamburger gravy, then where's the hamburger?

    Updated recipe. Not a taste if home recipe: 1 tube of buttermilk biscuits, 1 package sausage gravy mix, follow directions. Really, as easy as sausage gravy and biscuits are to make this recipe is pathetic.

    Canned biscuits? Gravy mix? Hmmmm...
