While the Biscuits are baking start on the sausage gravy.

Grab 1 pound of Jimmy Dean, Hot Pork Sausage

Grab another cast iron skillet and turn it to medium high heat and add the sausage and once it starts sizzling, start breaking and grounding it up

Cook meat until you no longer see pink, and its nice and ground up into little bits about 10-15 minutes

Then take about a cup of flour and sprinkle it over the sausage
DSC_0121-1

Stir the flour in with the meat and cook for a  5 minutes, so the flour can absorb some grease and sausage flavor and this helps prevent lumps when you add the milk, to make your gravy

Then add in about 3 cups of milk

also add in freshly ground black pepper, to taste
DSC_0125-1

then add in some garlic powder, to taste
DSC_0128-1

then stir the gravy all together, until it starts to thicken
DSC_0129-1

if gravy is too thick, add more milk…if its thick enough, taste for seasoning and adjust. Add more black pepper for extra spiciness.

Then serve it over the biscuits you just baked up
