Southern Potato & Sausage Gravy With Buttermilk Biscuits

I have watched my Mother, Grandmother and other family members make this dish for breakfast, lunch or supper, and for me, I will eat it anytime, it is just that good. It is served on a fluffy hot biscuit or a crisp slice of toasted bread and no matter when you have it, this recipe is pure comfort, southern style!

We Start With Some Great Boiled Potatoes
Flavorful Breakfast Sausage

Then We Add Some Creamy Gravy

Southern Potato and Sausage Gravy
Miz Helen's Kitchen
3 to 4 small white potatoes, boiled with the jackets on
1 pound breakfast sausage
1 small onion, chopped
1/3 cup flour
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
In a medium sauce pan, cover 3 or 4 potatoes (jackets on) with very salty water  and boil until the potatoes are tender and can be chopped.
In a large heavy skillet cook the breakfast sausage and onion until the sausage is cooked through and the onions are clear.
Add the boiled chopped potatoes and mix with the sausage.
In a mixing pitcher mix together the flour, milk, salt, pepper, Worcestershire Sauce and Tabasco. Make sure that the flour is thoroughly blended with the milk.
Pour the seasoned milk and flour over the sausage, potatoes and onions.
Stir the liquid with the sausage until the mixture becomes thick. You can thin the gravy by adding more milk a little at a time.
Serve on hot biscuit's or crisp toasted bread.

Buttermilk Biscuits
Miz Helen's Kitchen 
2-1/2 cups flour, all purpose
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut in 1/4 inch cubes
1 cup buttermilk
In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. 
Cut in the cold cubed butter with a pastry blender. Work the butter and flour until the dough looks like little peas.  
Add the buttermilk until the flour mix is completely blended. Be careful not to overwork the dough or your biscuits will be tough.  
Turn the dough onto a floured dough board and form the dough into a large ball. Flatten the dough to 1/2 inch and cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Be sure and keep dipping your cutter in the flour to keep the biscuits from sticking to the cutter.
Place the biscuits onto a lightly oiled baking pan about 2 inches apart
Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees 15 to 20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.
