Southern breakfast

Mmm. Biscuits and gravy. I know I've carried on in the past about how nasty sausage gravy is, but when you make it yourself using homemade spicy breakfast sausage, it becomes a quality breakfast. And no, I didn't make biscuits from scratch, sorry R. I don't have that kind of energy or drive first thing in the morning.

For the sausage gravy, brown 1 lb of breakfast sausage (preferably spicy sausage). Remove sausage to paper towels, leaving 2 tbsp of fat in the pan. Add about a 1/4 of flour, mix well, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add 1 1/2 to 2 c water, salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you desire (like onion powder, garlic powder, etc.). Give this a few minutes to come up to temperature and thicken, then add back in sausage. Serve over piping hot biscuits.
