Sausage gravy with biscuits

sausage gravy and biscuits 2Since we have been doing this experiment of cooking everything from scratch I have found that weekend breakfasts can be a bit of a challenge.  This morning we had a little time so I thought that I would make an actual breakfast.  We had some ground sausage in the fridge that was going to be past prime in the next couple of days, so sausage gravy with biscuits sounded good to me.  What I didn’t realize that we only had about 1.5 cups of all purpose flour and my go to biscuit recipe calls for 2.5 cups.  I did have a full bag of King Arthur white wheat flour and I have been adding that to all of our bread recipes lately, how bad could it be?  Turns out, not too bad at all.  The kids didn’t even notice the wheat flour and ate them just fine – no idea about the wheat flour.  A little extra whole grain never hear anyone.
