Sausage Gravy Stuffed Breakfast Biscuits

White sausage gravy is something I grew upward eating over homemade buttermilk biscuits.  I accept a grandmother (my "Granny") from Kentucky too she made some hateful biscuits!  And, she is the ane from whom I learned to build sausage gravy.

I latterly posted a recipe for Stuffed Breakfast Rolls, which got me thinking well-nigh a biscuit filled amongst sausage gravy that my mother in law used to society from a nutrient delivery companionship (Schwan's) years ago.  I loved them!  Unfortunately, the companionship stopped making too selling them.  I accept persuasion of them ofttimes over the years too decided to meet how difficult it would live to replicate that same idea.

The primary substitution hither is to build your gravy simply a chip thicker than yous would for regular sausage gravy over biscuits.  Then, yous volition live chilling the gravy inwards a gallon-size plastic pocketbook inwards the freezer earlier filling the biscuits.

I must acknowledge that although I accept attempted to duplicate my grandmother's buttermilk biscuits over the years, they accept never quite been a success for me.  (Remember ... I am baking-challenged to some degree!)  Therefore, I used Grand's canned buttermilk biscuits for this recipe.  This recipe volition yield 12 stuffed biscuits, but uses 24 biscuits to make.

We had some of these leftover, thus I wrapped them individually inwards foil too parked them inwards the fridge.  Just reheat them inwards the foil in a 350 marker oven for well-nigh 10 - 12 minutes.


12-ounce package breakfast sausage (pork)
iv tablespoons all-purpose flour
two 1/2 cups milk
Salt too pepper, to taste
3 cans Grand's (or similar brand) large buttermilk biscuits (24 biscuits total)
1 egg


For the Gravy:

Heat a large skillet (cast iron, if available) over medium-high heat.  Add sausage too suspension apart amongst a spoon equally it cooks.  I similar mine to acquire a petty crispy.  Cook thoroughly ... well-nigh 8 - 10 minutes.

Leave the rendered fatty drippings too the sausage inwards the skillet.  Sprinkle inwards the flour too whisk for well-nigh 1 minute.

Pour inwards the milk too maintain to whisk until it all comes to a slight boil.  If it seems likewise incredibly thick, add together inwards a chip to a greater extent than milk piece whisking.  Lower the rut to depression too allow to simmer for a few minutes.  The gravy volition thicken upward a lot during this time.

Season amongst tabular array salt too pepper.

Turn off the heat.  Allow to cool inwards the pan for well-nigh xx minutes.  Stir a span of times during cooling.

Once generally cooled, pour gravy into a gallon-size plastic bag.  Let all of the air out too seal. 

Place inwards freezer for about 30 - 60 minutes to firm upward too almost freeze.  (Mine took well-nigh 45 minutes.)  It needs to live real thick too cold.

Filling the Biscuits:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

While gravy is firming upward inwards the freezer, draw of piece of occupation a large baking sheet amongst parchment newspaper or spray amongst non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.

Whisk 1 egg amongst a splash of H2O inwards a small-scale bowl.  Set aside.

Line 12 of the biscuits up on the baking sheet.
Using a tablespoon measurement spoon, press into the oculus of each of the 12 biscuits ... you're creating a "well." 
Once the gravy is fully chilled, take from freezer.  Press all of the gravy to ane corner of the bag, thus snip off a large opening on ane corner amongst scissors.

Squeeze a mound of gravy onto the oculus good of each biscuit, thus transcend amongst some other biscuit.  Seal the biscuit dough upward around the exterior edges to fully trap inwards the gravy "mound." Do this past times pinching the seams together tightly.  Then, press the seal downwardly a chip to fifty-fifty out the edges past times "cupping" your hands around the biscuit.  Do this past times asset the biscuit inwards your mitt too shaping equally yous would a meatball (just non quite equally round).  Keep working it until the seams seem well-sealed.

After you've made all of your biscuits, brush each ane amongst the egg wash. 

Do non allow biscuits to impact the baking sheet.

Bake directly at 350 degrees for well-nigh xv - 17 minutes (on transcend rack inwards oven) or until biscuits are golden brownish too no longer "doughy."

NOTE:  You may non exercise all of the gravy. I had well-nigh a one-half of a loving cup left.  Also, a span of my biscuits did separate a chip at the seams, but none of the filling leaked out.  Just live certain to seal equally tightly equally possible earlier baking.
