Sourdough biscuits and pan gravy are big in my house. So, why not share the good recipes with you, too? I’m sure you will love them as much as we do.
I have my sour dough starter going. I got it all mixed up and decided to put it into the jar I keep it in. Bad idea. I had to take some of it out and put it into another container till it slows down some. Note to self and viewers. Leave your starter in the bowl for a while, or it will do this to you! My jar runneth over, but boy do I know that starter is happy and working. It was only up to where the jar starts sloping in.
Enough about this. You saw it in my sourdough starter blog recently anyway.
Sour dough starter is very easy to make:
2 cups white flour
2 cups warm water – not hot
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 teaspoons white sugar – to help the yeast work faster
Mix it together in a bowl large enough to let it rise and work. I put a piece of plastic wrap loosely over the top. Don’t cover it tightly, or you will have a blow out! Let this work for a few days, or even just overnight in the fridge, and you can use it the next day. However, the longer you let it ‘work’, the stronger it gets.
This is a great recipe and tutorial for how to make sourdough biscuits.
2 TBS all purpose flour
2 TBS butter or margarine
2 cups milk
salt & black pepper to taste
Put the butter in a frying pan over med-high heat. When it is melted, add the flour and whisk it in. Begin adding your milk while you are whisking until it is well incorporated.
Bring it to a boil, then turn the heat to low and let it simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the sausage. Add any salt and/or black pepper that you want.
Split your biscuits in half and put gravy over them. Serve hot. YUMMY!
