Biscuits to go with your Spicy Sausage Gravy (below) Yield: 12 -15 biscuits BUT… for the BIG NASTY- 6 BIG ONES
  • 3.5 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 12 tablespoons butter (1-1/2 sticks), in ½-inch cubes
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  1. Preheat the oven to 380° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry cutter. Fold in the grated cheese and scallions. Beat the eggs with the cream. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the egg mixture. Mix until just combined; do not over mix the dough. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface. Roll out to about ¾ inch thick. Cut into 3”- 4” rounds for the BIG NASTY. Transfer to parchment-lined sheet pan. Beat together egg and water, and brush biscuits with the egg wash. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, lower the temperature to 340°F, and bake for another 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
