How to Make Sawmill Gravy with Cathead Biscuits
- 1For gravy:
Make sausage into patties and fry in moderately hot skillet until brown and cooked done. Put sausage patties on paper towels to drain grease. Use about half of the grease in the skillet to make gravy. Add flour and brown flour in grease stirring constantly. Add about 1 1/2 cups of milk and enough water to make gravy as thin as you like. Break up about 4 of the cooked sausage patties and crumble in the gravy. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over hot biscuits.
- 2For biscuits:
Sift and mix dry ingredients then blend with lard. Add buttermilk. For each biscuit, pinch off a portion of dough the shape of a large egg and pat out with your hands. Bake in a 350* wood stove about 10 minutes or in an electric or gas stove at 475*.
