This breakfast was on the menu and a favorite of many hungry men, at the restaurant I used to manage. It is sure to please. Women love it too, but always asked for 1/2 a serving. I hope you try it sometime. A true comfort meal, that I serve for dinner too, it's not just for breakfast. Enjoy!

How To Make ~ man pleasin breakfast ~ cassies

  • 1
    Have biscuits prepared and keep warm. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add oil. Once hot crumble sausage into skillet and add the onions, peppers, potato if using, salt and pepper to taste. Saute until meat is no longer pink and veggies are browning and tender. Keep warm while making gravy.

    In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Once bubbling, whisk in the flour and continue cooking for 1 - 2 minutes, do not burn. Whisk in the milk and continue whisking as it comes to a boil and thickening. Season with cracked black pepper and salt. Remove from burner. May need to add a little more milk as it tends to thicken as it sits.

    Prepare 2 eggs for each biscuit. Over easy is really the best for this breakfast.
