This is a vegetarian recipe, I think. It has eggs and milk. I'm not up on the vegetarian rules, but you can easily add sausage to the gravy or bacon to the biscuit if you like.

small pepper (green, red, or yellow)

CREAMY CHEESE GRAVY

5 Tbsp

5 Tbsp
flour
1 1/2 c

shreaded cheese ( i prefer cheddar )

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For biscuits. Add all dry ingredients, cut in shortening with pastry blender until flour is mealy.
Add milk until dough comes together. Turn out on floured surface and knead 7-10 times. Pat dough out to approx. 1 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter. I use a 3 inch diameter cutter. Place biscuits on baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. For a more buttery biscuit brush tops with melted butter before baking.
2
Omelet. Medium chop onion, peppers, and mushrooms. Sautee in oil until tender, salt and pepper to taste, add beaten eggs and cook over medium heat until slightly browned, flip and brown other side.
3
Gravy. Melt butter in skillet and add flour wisk until lighty browned to make a rue, add milk slowly and cook til bubbly and thick. Again, salt and pepper to taste (if you can't see the pepper in the gravy add some more. Freshly ground of course.) Let gravy cool slightly and add shreaded cheese so it just stars to melt.
4
Assembly. Split hot buscuit (I like to butter the biscuit at this point) cut the eggs vith spatula and add to buscuit, add top of buscuit and cover with hot gravy. Sprinkel top with more cheese and more fresly ground pepper.
