One Of My Faves

I love biscuits and gravy! Biscuits and gravy is one of the best matches ever...like peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, Babalou and Prince William. I have biscuits and gravy almost every weekend as should every one else in the world. So, I am sharing with you my biscuits and gravy this morning.

First, you go to your parent's house the night before and steal a bag-o-biscuits from their freezer. mwaa ah ah. My mom said I could, but I don't think my dad knows. I hope he doesn't want biscuits this morning. tee hee. Most of you may prefer regular bacon, but I prefer a little turkey bacon. Make sure you have some flour, milk, a little extra virgin olive oil (or vegetable oil), butter spray, your choice of fruit, and of course....coffee.



I love a good bag-o-biscuits. Why? Because when cooking for one, the bag-o-biscuits allows me to pick how many biscuits I want at any given time. I can just make one, or two, or five. My choice. I like options. Follow the directions on the bag. I won't tell you what to do here.


Fry up your turkey bacon. Sizzle.


Flip your turkey bacon. yum.


Place your cooked turkey bacon on a paper towel to absorb the nasty but necessary grease.


Using the same pan with the remnants from the turkey bacon, lower your heat, then add about a tablespoon of EVOO. Or however much you feel necessary, depending on how much grease is left over from the turkey bacon.


SLOWLY, trickle some flower into the grease and oil. Stir and mix VIGOROUSLY...I really just wanted to say vigorously. But, seriously. stir really well to get all the lumps out. Add flower slowly if needed to make a good roux.


Slowly stir in and mix in milk. Stirring VIGOROUSLY. tee hee. You know what I mean. You can also add some salt and pepper to taste, but I choose to not add S&P as often as I can whenever I cook anything. I am leaving it out today. But, feel free!




Of course, add milk and flour as needed to make the amount of gravy you want. This should do.


This is the second week in a row that I have not gone to the farmer's market...so I have no fresh fruit today. I am resulting to a can-o-cocktail fruit. The sign in the background is from my parent's...they thought it was hilarious.


Then, you check on your biscuits to see how they are coming along. Be sure to open the oven and let all the hot air out...because you can. Not quite done, so we will let them bake just a tad bit longer.


In the meantime, we will check on Rachael Ray because we loves her on Sunday mornings.


Just enough time, the biscuits are perfect-o!


Prepare plate and coffee and eat away. I am only serving myself three of the biscuits, which is a lot. I am saving the other two biscuits to make ham and olive biscuit-wiches for lunch. I love Sundays!


Keep on Keepin on

LOL! Oh, Deb! I LOVE this post!!! Now you've got me craving biscuits! Do you know that the first time I ever ate biscuits was on one of my many trips to the States?! We don't really eat them here (well, not in the city, but now that I live in the country, my MIL makes them. She's a true farmer's wife!). Mmmmm...I LOVE biscuits! *sigh*

I also love your "I serve 3 meals..." sign! Too cute!!

BTW, thanks for being such a great blog pal! Your message just cheered me up today! The thought of going into delivery right now scares me...especially since "Junior" is only 1 lb, 7 oz and has 3 more months to go! Gah!

Thank you again for thinking of us! XOXO
