How to make it

  • For the biscuits: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl combine the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Cream in the butter with your fingers or a fork, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk a little at a time and, using your hands or a fork, work it in just until it's thoroughly incorporated and you have a smooth ball of dough. Don't overwork or overhandle the dough.
  • On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a rectangle, about 1/2-inch thick. Cut in half, making 2 big ol' square shaped biscuits.
  • Place the dough squares on the baking sheet and bake until golden on top and brown on the bottom, for about 20 minutes. Serve warm.
  • For the gravy: Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, break it up with a wooden spoon, and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes. NOTE: Since I use sausage LINKS, I brown them in the pan first, put them in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped, then returned sausage to the pan).
  • Sprinkle the flour on the sausage and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. While stirring, pour the milk into the skillet and bring the gravy to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Season with pepper.
  • Split the biscuits in half and divide them among plates. Top the middle of each biscuit with a fried egg and some of the gravy. Garnish with a fresh parsely leaf, if desired. Serve immediately.
