Miranda's Mile High Buttermilk Biscuits & Sausage Milk Gravy

I have to say that I am not a fan of breakfast foods. I do not like eggs, bacon, toast or any of the typical breakfast dishes that most people enjoy. With that said, I do make one exception. I love a good plate of biscuits and gravy. It is honestly my all time favorite meal. I love warm, big, fluffy biscuits smothered with a good homemade sausage milk gravy. 

My recipe for Mile High Buttermilk Biscuits are buttery with soft flaky layers that melt in your mouth. Top them off with a sausage milk gravy and you have a dish to die for! This recipe is no fail and comes out perfect every time. Make these any time as they take about 45 minutes from beginning to end. Give them a good brush of melted butter when they come out of the oven and serve plain, with jam, or gravy. So delicious and easy to make!

For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:

2 1/2 C all purpose flour, plus more for rolling
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
8 tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces
1 C buttermilk, plus 1-2 tsp
2 tbsp melted butter
Grated cheese and bacon crumbles (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

2. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl. 

3. Cut butter into flour mixture using a fork or pastry cutter.

4. Add buttermilk and stir with a large spoon until it forms a large ball. You may need add a little more buttermilk , 1 tsp at a time, if it is too dry. 

5. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and roll into a rectangle, about an inch thick. Fold over in half and gently roll out again. Repeat six times to add flaky layers. 

6. Using a round biscuit cutter or a large glass dipped in flour, cut out biscuits. Do not twist the cutter or glass when cutting out the biscuits as this will cause them not to rise as much. If there are scraps, roll them together and cut out additional biscuits. 

7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place biscuits on sheet with 2" separating them. 

8. Bake for approximately 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter after removing from oven. Serve with some sausage milk gravy and enjoy!
