Recipe by Sue Lau
Bob Evan's restaurants makes this on their breakfast menu (they call it country Biscuit Breakfast), but I took one look at it, and said to my husband they should call it "Breakfast Slop" instead. Despite the not too encouraging name, this is really good, and one of the better things you can have for breakfast at Evans. You'll like this a lot if you are a fan of biscuits and gravy, because this basically is the magnum opus of that sort of thing. At Evans they serve this with home fries (hash browns) and that or something like grits would be just great. Enjoy!
- 4 large biscuits (refrigerated type or home made)
- 1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 1⁄2 cups milk
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare biscuits if not already made.
- Brown sausage in a large skillet, crumbling it as it cooks and draining any fat.
- Melt butter in a different large skillet and stir in flour.
- Cook flour, stirring, over low heat until it just starts to change color (it doesn't need to get dark/coffee brown).
- Whisk in milk, salt and pepper and continue stirring until mixture thickens to your liking.
- If you like the gravy thicker, stir a little flour into a small amount of milk until smooth, and whisk that into the gravy; if you like it thinner, just add more milk and stir until blended.
- Cook eggs singly in a small skillet either sunny-side-up or over-easy, whichever you prefer (this is best when the yolk is still a little runny).
- For each serving, split biscuit and place on plate.
- Top biscuit with crumbled sausage and cover with fried egg.
- Cover egg with milk gravy and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
- If you like the cheese melty, nuke it (microwave) for 30-45 seconds on high.
- Serve with hash browns or cheese grits, if desired.
