Comfort Biscuits and Gravy

Having spent the majority of my childhood growing up in the Midwest, to me, biscuits and gravy are the epitome of classic breakfast comfort food. The rich, hearty gravy will warm your soul on the coldest of mornings.

I decided last weekend on a whim to make this as a brunch dish. It takes only 15 minutes to prepare from start to finish! As a public service announcement, there is no inherent healthy quality to this recipe. But I’m willing to take my chances occasionally to indulge in the nostalgia of my youth!
