This is your regular Biscuits and Sausage Gravy with a hint of spice. I am using Jimmy Deans regular premium sausage and I always get the best result every time. Crushed red chili is the spice component that I added for this simple recipe. Some people do not want their sausage gravy spicy, so feel free to ignore this ingredient. However, you can use the Hot pork sausage variety and add more crushed red pepper if spice is your thing.
I used store bought frozen biscuit dough to save some time. There is quite a bit of rush during the morning, but we still want to make sure that everyone eats breakfast before leaving for school or work. Pillsbury Grands Butter Tastin biscuit dough is what I used for this dish. I also like the Southern style. I found this recipe interesting and you may refer to it if you prefer to make your own biscuit.
I think that the sausage gravy is really good. It makes a good topping for other breads such as toasts and croissants. My garlic bread tasted really good when I tried to top it with hot sausage gravy. It was so delish!
