I’m a huge fan of biscuits and gravy. It’s not very often you find it on a menu up here, but when I do I always order it. Last week I got a sudden craving and added it to our menu… but wasn’t sure what recipe I would use. I randomly found this one and adapted it to what we had on hand… it was perfect and AMAZING! Hand’s down best recipe I have made, there will be no more searching this will be it!
