“Basics with Babish’s” Biscuits and Sarah’s Gravy

Today I’m going to share my experience using Babish’s Recipe for Biscuits and Gravy – but just the biscuits 😉

I’m a HUGE Babish fan. I watch every single episode that comes out and think to myself, “HOLY SHIT, I want to try making that!” For those of you who don’t know him, he has two types of videos: Binging and Basics. His “Binging” series takes foods that you’ve seen in popular movies and TV-shows, and makes them real either by creating recipes of his own, or utilizing a given recipe from the movie/tv-show. His “Basics” series goes over essential, basic recipes that should be in any home cooks’ arsenal.

Even though I used Babish’s biscuit recipe, this is my own personal Sausage Gravy recipe!


  • 1 lb breakfast sausage

  • 1/3 cup flour

  • 4 cups milk

  • 1 Tbsp pepper

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • 1 – 2 tsp paprika

  • dash of cayenne pepper


  • Break up the sausage in the pan, and cook until crispy on one side
  • Pour the 1/3 cup of flour onto the sausage and stir. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until raw flour smell dissipates and all sausage pieces are coated.
  • Pour the remaining ingredients – milk, pepper, salt, onion powder, paprika, and cayenne. Cook the mixture for at least 5 minutes, or until mixture is thick and gravy-like. Stir the mixture regularly to ensure an even mixture.
  • Serve this hot gravy on top of a fresh biscuit!


  • Add spices as you see fit – I’ve gotten to a point where I can visually tell if there’s enough pepper and will add additional pepper, onion powder, or even slip some garlic powder in if I’m feeling in the mood for a different depth of flavor!

First off, my overall impression going into Babish’s Biscuit recipe was that it was going to be the best biscuits and gravy I’d ever had in my entire life. I’m pretty confident in my gravy recipe, so I was mostly excited about these scratch biscuits, and their flaky layers. I had never made buttermilk biscuits before because it seemed to be a huge pain in the ass, but after seeing Babish do it, I thought to myself, “this looks a lot easier than I thought!”

I followed the “Old Fashioned Biscuit” recipe to a T- did not add or adjust anything. The biscuits came out with some SUPER SEXY layers, and they were the best biscuits my boyfriend I have ever had.

I don’t have the greatest counter space, since it’s a tiled countertop in a rental apartment. I had to use the biggest cutting board I had which made the last few rotate / folding parts of the recipe quite difficult to roll out appropriately. Overall, they came out quite beautiful!
