{Beer} Biscuits and {Hamburger} Gravy

My husband absolutely loves biscuits and gravy. In fact, almost every time we go out to breakfast or brunch this is exactly what he orders. However I don't actually ever make it at home. Chris has a job that can be rather stressful some days, more stressful than I could ever myself fully understand and one day he just seemed like he needed his comfort food.

Beer Biscuits

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter or shortening
  • 3/4 cup beer
Directions: Preheat oven to 450'. Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in butter until it has cornmeal consistency. Stir in beer, knead lightly, roll out to 1/2 -inch thickness. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about a dozen biscuits. 

Hamburger Gravy

  • 1lb ground hamburger 
  • 1/4 chopped onion
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 T chicken bouillon granules 
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
Directions: Crumble the ground beef into a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain the grease and return beef to pan. Add the onions, and cook for a few more minutes.

Pour 2 cups of the milk into the pan, and stir to scrape up any bits of food that could burn on the bottom of the pan. Mix in the bouillon, butter, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes, 
stirring frequently.

Mix the flour into the last cup of milk until smooth. Slowly pour into the skillet, stirring constantly. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken. If the gravy is too thick, thin with a little bit of milk. If it is too 
thin, simmer longer, or add more flour. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.

Chris felt much better after this dinner!

  1. Allen LOVES biscuits and gravy, but he always just has me buy that weirdo gravy mix and refrigerated biscuits. I'm definitely going to have to try these!!
