Good Food Makes a Less Than Beautiful Sunday Still Sublime

Trying to hang out with the big boys lol.


The Beautiful Sunday and Sublime Sunday tags are some of my faves! I want to thank @ace108 for running the beautiful Sunday tag every week and keeping such detailed stats and supporting the accounts. Also, a shout out to @c0ff33a for the sublime Sunday tag where your random Sunday posts are always welcome!

So I often say even if the weather stinks (as is generally the case here in Michigan), it can still be a Beautifully Sublime Sunday given some good food is involved. So let's get the day started in the right direction with an offering from what we call our "Classics Menu", shall we...

Biscuits n Gravy

Hillbilly De Lux Version

Now I have shared my top secret biscuit recipe before so in order to keep this post from rivaling War and Peace for size, I will include the video on how to make the best biscuits in the world...

These are the ones from this morning. It is so simple and a true never fail recipe. Go ahead and try it, you will thank me later.

Ok now to make a good gravy you need to start with good ingredients. A good sausage is a must...

Get your cast iron and lob in a good about of butter like a couple tablespoons at a minimum. Like Julia Childs said you cant have too much butter...

Lets get that pork browning... Notice I am using my thumb to break up the clumps of meat. The joys of using cast iron!

Pour in a good amount of milk. No worries as we are not splitting the atom here...

Next dump in a pile of flour.

Stir

Thin with more milk...

Be sure to spill some as that adds to the fun feeling of freedom lol.

Stir again...

Getting close. Now for the secret flavor and rich color we need to add...

Sprinkle in a little...

And even a more...

Now you can see some of that nice rich tan color taking hold.

Now toss a few eggs in another cast iron skillet...

Notice how the gravy has a copious amount of locally sourced honey for that final lip smacking punch of flavor.

Be sure to watch a bit of the video for the final necessary ingredient...a damn fine cup of coffee :)

Now we will call that breakfast as done. Have a great week and enjoy an OldGuy classic:

There's those buttery biscuits again !

I never knew about the secret ingredient. My Mom use to use real coffee when making red-eye gravy, but I never saw anyone use it in milk gravy, with or without sausage.

Good Food really can save a day !

I may need to try milk alternatives to see what works for gravy.

Everyone I know that is not from the Northeast loves biscuits and gravy, including my own children. I have never had them, I have to be honest with you.

Ever. Ever.

They do put a smile on everyone's face for sure. :)

Long transformation with the meat but looks great.
The eggs were simpler.
