Flashback Friday – Sausage Gravy Stuffed Biscuits
Sausage gravy covered buttermilk biscuits becomes portable in today’s Flashback Friday. This recipe was originally posted in 2012 & is one of my favorite recipes. I took my mother’s buttermilk biscuits & traditional sausage gravy, and put a modern day spin on it. Buttermilk biscuit ‘cups’ stuffed to the brim with a thick sausage gravy. This one is to die for,y’all!
If you are a regular reader here, then you know that I have a bit of an addiction when it comes to my Mama’s buttermilk biscuits. They are incredible, and if you haven’t yet made them – you need to hurry and do so. I guarantee they will be the best biscuits you ever had the pleasure of putting in your mouth. I love to experiment with Mama’s biscuits though – as I have done with the cheddar garlic buttermilk biscuits & the country ham stuffed biscuits. I am thrilled to be able to add another successful recipe into the file.
But seriously, when your foundation is my mother’s unbeatable buttermilk biscuits & you stuff that with freshly made sausage gravy – how can you possibly go wrong?
Of course, to make these you will need to start off with my Mama’s biscuits. The recipe is included in the formatted recipe at the bottom of this page, but you can view a more in depth look at it in the original recipe.
After making the dough, flatten it out with your hands into a rectangle. Cut it into 8 squares using a pizza cutter.
Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray (I prefer Bakers Secret). Lightly dust your hands with flour, and flatten each square. Press them into the muffin cups. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter & brush it on top of the biscuits.
Bake them in an oven preheated to 500 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the sausage gravy. Brown 1 pound of sausage in a large skillet.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a paper towel lined plate. Turn the heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon of butter to the reserved bacon grease. Melt.
Whisk in the flour.
Cook, while whisking, for 1 minute – then start whisking in the milk a little at a time. Cook until thick. Season with salt & plenty of pepper.
This is the same sausage gravy recipe as I normally use, but with 1 cup less milk.
Stir in the sausage.
Fill the holes of the biscuits with the sausage gravy, and return to the oven on 500 degrees for 3-5 minutes.
Now, if you’re like me – you’ll want to sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top. Yum!
This will be one breakfast that you will be proud to serve! Try increasing the recipe, and making a large batch once a week. Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge, and reheat them in the microwave for breakfast throughout the week. Then you can have biscuits & gravy in just a matter of minutes! And, since they’re portable – you can grab them & go too!
These are also GREAT to make ahead, and store in the freezer! Pop them on a baking sheet & into the freezer for an hour or two, and then seal them inside of a freezer bag. To serve, thaw overnight (or in the defrost setting of the microwave) & bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes, or until warmed through.

It makes 8-12, depending on how large you make the biscuits. Sorry for the confusion!
