Whip up our Ultimate Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits recipe to make delicious homemade biscuits.
Why Make This Recipe
You need to make this recipe because it's:
Comfort food - sometimes we all need to eat food that's comforting.
Easy to make - simple is what life is about.
Versatile - you can switch a lot of things up in this recipe.
Sausage - you can use any flavor your family prefers. At times I use hamburger when I'm making it for dinner. It's totally up to you.
Seasoning - we used Cajun, however, you can use whatever you prefer.
Butter - make sure you use unsalted so you can control your salt. Remember you can add more table salt once you serve the dish. You can never subtract it.
Step by Step Instructions
Below are in-process photos for your reference. The full instructions are in the recipe card below.
- Biscuits - feel free to use refrigerated biscuits if you wish.
Another great thing about this recipe is that you can totally just make the gravy and use it for other recipes. Once you learn how to make this basic roux, you are on your way to a fantastic white gravy. Did you know that all homemade cheese sauces start with the same base?
You can substitute cornstarch instead.
If you want your gravy to be thicker, just add a little more flour at a time to get the consistency you want.
If you feel that the gravy is too thick, simply add more liquid, such as milk.

- As soon as the oven is ready, place the biscuits in the oven and set the timer accordingly.
- Cook the sausage until the meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees and until the pork is no longer pink.
- Once the biscuits are golden brown and done, remove them from the oven, and set them aside.
- When the sausage is thoroughly cooked, add the butter and mix together thoroughly.
- Next add the flour and stir the ingredients together and let the mixture cook for two minutes while stirring continuously.
- Then add in the reminder of the ingredients as well as the milk and whisk all of the ingredients together until everything is thoroughly combined.
