  • Oh it's soooo yummy it's just buttery biscuits with white sausage gravy poured all over it. It's a breakfast thing though, I think even McD's has it in the mornings. :)

  • Biscuits smothered in a pepper milk (white) gravy...sometimes with sausage bits in it too. It is DELICIOUS!!!

  • It's very good. It can be either just biscuits served open faced with white gravy on them, or sometimes, breakfast sausage is added on the biscuit and sausage is added to the gravy.

  • Well, it's yummy, but kind of naughty. It's exactly what it says, biscuits, usually split open with gravy over them. For breakfast it's often sausage gravy, but it can be anykidn of gravy, and I've had them with chicken chunks in chicken gravy (or turkey) for dinner as well. I don't make them, but I grew up eating them.

  • Exactly what the name says.
    You make biscuits either homemade or store bought. Then you make a White Gravy with Sausage. Many recipes can be found on,,, etc. It's delicious, especially the way my dad makes it! He makes it all from scratch.
