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.

How To Make buttermilk omelet biscuit w/ peppered cheese gravy

  • 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.

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.
