For the Biscuits

  • 2 Cups Self Rising Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Cold unsalted Butter, cut in chunks
  • 3/4 Buttermilk
  • Fresh Black Pepper for tops
  • Heavy cream for tops* see note

For the Gravy

  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean Sausage
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter I know, but it adds a little more flavor
  • 1/3 Cup plus 1 tablespoon Flour
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 Cups Milk
  • 2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 dash of hot sauce
  • Salt to taste about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon
  • 8 Slices of Bacon cooked
  • Medium Cheddar Cheese sliced [Fried Chicken]


For the biscuits

  • Heat the oven to 425 degrees f.
  • Place the flour and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Add the butter and using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the flour mixture.
  • Slowly add the buttermilk and stir in using a fork. Once the dough is pulled together roll it out on a lightly floured surface and fold over onto itself a few times, adding more flour to the counter as needed until the dough is not sticky.
  • Cut out biscuits, and brush the biscuits with a little heavy cream and sprinkle with fresh black pepper.
  • Place the biscuits on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 11 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and set aside on a cooling rack.

For the gravy

  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Crumble the sausage into a large skillet and add the butter. see note
  • Cook until all of the sausage is browned and add the flour, stirring with a wooden spoon to cover all of the meat.
  • Add the heavy cream and milk and bring to a boil.
  • Turn down to low heat and simmer until thickened, adding the black pepper, nutmeg and hot sauce as it cooks.
  • Salt to taste and serve immediately.

To assemble

  • Open a biscuit and add the fried chicken, bacon, cheese and gravy and top with the biscuit lid.
  • Enjoy!


I accidentally brushed too much cream on the biscuits which weighed them down a little while baking. Make sure you use a light hand.
The gravy has a few secrets that make it a little different than most gravies, however while there is plenty of grease it's the butter that keeps it tasting creamy and buttery and the nutmeg gives a hint of warmth instead of a bland gravy.
