  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk*
  • Sausage Gravy


  1. In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add buttermilk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for four to six strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 3/4-inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cutting straight down with no twisting. Reroll dough cuttings as necessary.
  3. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet or place in an 11x7x2-inch baking pan with the biscuit edges just touching. Bake in a 475 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove biscuits from baking sheet or pan; serve warm with Sausage Gravy. Makes 10 biscuits.


  • * To make sour milk, place 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measure. Add enough milk to equal 1 cup total. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.

Sausage Gravy


  • 8 ounces bulk pork sausage
  • 1/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a heavy, large skillet or cast-iron skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until meat is brown, stirring occasionally. Do not drain; leave pan juices in skillet. Sprinkle flour over meat. Stir flour into meat. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3 minutes. While stirring, gradually add 1 cup milk. Cook and stir until mixture begins to thicken. Gradually stir in 1-1/4 cups more milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper. Makes 2-2/3 cups.
