  • Recipe

    Start by cooking the breakfast meat. You will want the residual grease to be ready for making gravy as the biscuits are baking. Preheat oven to 475ºF. Grate frozen butter and toss with flour in a medium bowl, chill 10 minutes. Make a well in the center of mixture, add buttermilk and stir 15 times, dough will be slightly loose. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Press dough into a ball and sprinkle with flour. Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough into a ¾” thick rectangle (about 9”x 5”). Fold dough in half so short ends meet. Repeat rolling and folding process 4 more times. Roll dough to ½” thickness. Cut with a 2 ½” floured round cutter, reshaping scraps and flouring as needed. Place dough rounds on a parchment paper-lined pan. Bake at 475ºF for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter. While biscuits are baking, make the gravy in a medium skillet on medium-high. Ensure there is ¼ cup grease in the pan. If your meat didn’t produce ¼ cup, add canola oil to that amount. Whisk flour into grease and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. Add 1 cup milk to the mixture and whisk quickly. This initial mixture will thicken and cook quickly. Once well combined, add an additional cup of milk and stir until well combined. Allow mixture to come to a light simmer then turn heat to low-medium. As mixture thickens, add remaining ½ cup milk and salt and pepper to taste. Allow to simmer 3-5 minutes.
