Ham and Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

I really love a stick to your ribs kind of meal, and as I don’t often make anything too heavy (and delicious) for breakfast, the other day I was going to take a stand and make something awesome for breakfast. A couple of days prior to making these ham and sausage biscuits and gravy, we decided to try out Nueske’s smoked ham. If you know me, you know I am a big fan of Nueske’s smoked meat, and I was excited to try their ham. Let’s just say their ham was excellent. We had plenty of leftovers, and that’s when I decided to come up with this recipe.

Ham and Sausage Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

I’ve had plenty of biscuits and gravy in my time, but the addition of ham, well let’s just say it elevated it to a whole new level.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound of ground pork sausage
  • 1 cup of cooked, diced ham
  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 tsp course cracked black pepper
  • salt, to taste
  • Biscuits, cooked

Start by adding the ground pork to a medium pot, and cook until browned. Next add in the ham. Dust the mixture with flour, giving it a good stir. Cook the flour, until lightly golden. It should not take very long.

Next slowly pour in the milk, and make sure all of that flour gets dissolved into the milk. Continue to stir until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes or so. That’s when it gets exciting, well at least to me.

Once the sauce is thickened, season with cracked black pepper, and a pinch of salt. Taste, and adjust any more seasoning.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
