Easy Southern Biscuits and Gravy

August 13, 2021

Nothing says southern like biscuits and gravy. I grew up watching my mom make everything from scratch including her homemade biscuits. Try as I might I have never been able to achieve the perfection of her warm and flaky flavor-filled concoction. I'm willing to admit it has become a lost art form and she never used a recipe that I remember. I'm sure it will become a family favorite at your home just like it is at ours. Warm, gooey, rich and hardly, this might just be the perfect southern comfort food. The recipe I am sharing with you guys today is an adaptation of my mom's southern biscuits and gravy with a few short cuts. Dare I call it a casserole? Sure let's go with that!
