I cannot think of a better breakfast to represent the South then Biscuits and Gravy. The popular food chain, Hardee's is to blame for my addiction to this wonderful meal. We don't have one down here in Louisiana, however there were multiple one's back home in North Carolina and when I was growing up, I remember ordering this scrumptious breakfast with my parents. Husband Man also enjoyed this item on their menu as well ;)
When we received orders to move down here 9 years ago, I knew that I somehow had to find a way to duplicate this meal. This recipe isn't exactly like the one we used to eat at Hardee's. It's actually better ;) And it's so very simple. If I had known how easy it would be to make Biscuits and Gravy, I would have done it years ago and would have passed up eating at Hardee's...lol. Ah well. You live and you learn, right?
You can make it with breakfast sausage, turkey sausage, or hamburger meat. Husband Man does not like anything with sausage so we stick to making it with just hamburger meat. We enjoy making this for overnight guests when they come to visit and make it at least once a month for ourselves. It's become a family favorite in our house and we hope it will become one in yours as well ;)
