There is something wonderful about breakfast foods. They are delicious any time of day. Biscuits and gravy is definitely one of those that fits this category perfectly. Can you really make it any better? Yes, just add more meat! Yes I said it. This gravy is extra meaty and will cure any comfort food craving. Grab your favorite drink and meet me at the table, breakfast comfort food is coming up next!

Biscuits and "Lots of Sausage" Gravy
1 tbs. Olive oil
2 lbs. Fresh Maple sausage
2 tbs. Reserved sausage oil
2 tbs. Flour
4 c. Half and Half
1 Tsp granulated garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cans Jumbo biscuits

Open biscuits and cook as package instructs.

In a large skillet add oil and heat until oil begins to glisten. Add sausage and break up so all pieces cook evenly. Cook until sausage is cook through. Remove sausage from the pan to a bowl, drain oil, and reserve 2 tbs in the pan. Add flour and whisk to combine with oil. Continue to whisk until flour has toasted slightly. Add milk in  half at a time. Stir slowly to thoroughly combine. Continue to stir as mixture begins to bubble, add remaining milk. Add garlic, salt and pepper. Stir to combine seasonings into the gravy. Add sausage back to the pan. Stir to combine. Taste for seasoning, if need add more. Cook until desired thickness is reached. Serve hot with big fluffy biscuits, whether you like them split or whole this gravy will fill your belly and your soul! Enjoy!
