Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy #SingleDudeStylePosted April 7, 2014
Happy Monday friends! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and are ready to take on another week! Overall my weekend was perfect… My little sister came and stayed the night. We made crafts, watched Frozen a couple times, and ate. Sounds perfect, right? She enjoyed every minute of it, which made made it totally worth singing “Let It Go” over and over and over again! One thing she requested was that I make breakfast for us on Saturday morning. Knowing that cereal or a pop-tart wouldn’t do it for her, I decided to make our favorite breakfast- biscuits and chocolate gravy. Yep.. You read that right. I said chocolate gravy, and let me just tell you.. It’s basically like pouring a little bit of Heaven over your warm, fluffy biscuits.
A few years back I was a twenty year old fella living in Tulsa, and extremely homesick. My mom came up for the weekend to help remedy my sickness with some home cooking, and quality time. It’s still one of my favorite weekends ever. Anyhow let’s not get sidetracked. For breakfast that Saturday morning she decided to teach me how to make biscuits and chocolate gravy. I had been eating this meal since I was born basically, but never thought I could make it. I was more of a Grands (Biscuits in a can) kind of guy. She whipped out three ingredients and told me that’s all I needed to make biscuits. I thought she was a genius (still do), but since I have learned that she had a little help from the queen of southern cooking, Paula Deen. Just add a stick of butter y’all! I am so excited to share this recipe with you all! It feels like more than just a meal, it’s part of me! #LifeOfAFatKid
Now set those biscuits to the side for a minute. We will come back to them, I promise! I’m ready to get started on the real treat.. The chocolate gravy! I think I’ll name it “Momma’s Chocolate Gravy.” How
original, I know!
Let’s start by mixing a few ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Toss in 2/3 cup of sugar, 1/3
cup of cocoa, and 2 tbs. of self rising flour. Mix it all together! We will use the 2 cups of milk in a minute!
Now is the time I put those biscuits in my per-heated oven!
In a skillet, melt 1/3 stick of butter over a low heat. Once melted, add in your sugar, flour, and cocoa. Be careful not to scorch it! This is the point when you will quickly start adding your milk. Okay, so
when I said quickly I really meant slowly. You have to add a little milk quickly, then start whisking it.
Now slowly add in the remaining of your milk while whisking to ensure you have no clumps. Stir
continually until the mixture thickens to your likeness! I usually stir it for 5-6 mins! You be the judge:)
I added a little butter to the top of each biscuit (Only because I didn’t think we had enough
calories.) Next comes the goodness, the piece of Heaven, spoon some of that delicious chocolate
gravy over those warm, buttered biscuits. I’m gaining weight just writing this post!
