Ham and Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

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.
