The Best Biscuits for Gravy!

I grew up eating them for breakfast with a dab of butter and a spread of jam or a big spoonful of sausage gravy. Mmmm! We also serve them alongside homestyle meals such as fried chicken, beef stew and meatloaf. Comfort food classics made even better with a biscuit by their side!

Tender, Nutritious, Biscuit Perfection

They’re made more nutritious and heartier from the whole wheat flour, but still super tender with a nice fluff in every bite. A little butter goes a long way as they have the most amazing buttery texture to compliment the sweetness of the honey and the slight saltiness throughout. Biscuit perfection! They keep well for a few days and are awesome when sliced and reheated under the broiler for a few minutes with a little butter & honey melting on top. Heavenly!

    1. Hi, Clarissa! Oh, no! That shouldn’t happen. Let’s see if we can fix it. Assuming you used the full tablespoon of baking powder (and not soda, as baking powder gives for lift)? Are you at a high altitude by any chance? If you lower your oven 15 degrees and cook longer, that can be a solution. I hope you this helps if you try them again!

    1. Hi Brandie! Yes, you certainly can. I would recommend whole milk, if possible, for the fat content, but skim milk will work just fine. The texture of the biscuits will be lighter. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

  1. i haven’t mad the biscuits yet, but I would like to know if I can substitute sea salt for kosher salt?

    1. Hi Henrietta! Yes, I often substitute and it works great. I find that sea salt makes them a little saltier. Enjoy!
