- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 stick frozen salted butter
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 lb breakfast sausage (or any sausage of your liking)
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
- 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
- 4 cups milk
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- In a food processor, combine dry ingredients and pulse until combined.
- Chop butter into large pieces then add to the food processor.
- Pulse about 6-10 times for 1 second until the butter pieces are a little larger than a pea.
- Refrigerate the mixture for about 10 minutes.
- Begin cooking the sausage in a large skillet along with sage and rosemary.
- Remove biscuit mixture and add it to a large mixing bowl.
- Add buttermilk and honey and mix until just combined. Put mixture back in the refrigerator for an additional 10 minutes.
- Flour a large surface so the dough won’t stick.
- Remove the dough onto the surface and roll out (with a rolling pin) or pat down with your hands until it is about a 1/2 inch thick.
- Fold the dough in half and roll back out to a 1/2 inch. Continue this process 5 times.
- With a biscuit cutter, cut as many biscuits as your dough will allow. You can re-roll the remaining dough to make more biscuits but keep in mind the more you roll the dough the less they will rise and be light and flaky.
- Place biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. If the tops do not brown as much as you would like, turn the broiler on for a few minutes to get a nice golden brown color.
- Add the flour to the cooked sausage then add the milk. Continue to cook over medium-low heat until the gravy is nice and thick. Finish with salt and pepper to taste (I added a touch of cayenne to mine). If the gravy is too thick, add more milk. If it is too saucy, add more flour. Enjoy! 🙂

**It is very important to keep the biscuit dough very cold. I recommend refrigerating it more than you think is necessary to ensure the butter stays very very cold.
**OPTIONAL: top with a fried egg for some added goodness 🙂
