    Men who cook? HOTTT — yes that’s with 3 T’s. I’m not usually down with the gravy (doesn’t that sound like some kind of pop culture slang?), but maybe I could be? You girls might be the ones to convince me!

    this is totally something the Brawny man would make!! And then we’d hit it under the red plaid flannel sheets in that log cabin and only bears would hear our lusty screams. Did I just type that? I blame the cough medicine.

    I recently discovered your blog, and I love love love it! I can’t wait to try this recipe. Saturday morning breakfast, oh yes, it will be mine! I am thinking of subbing half of the chiles with jalapeno for an extra little kick. Thank you so much for sharing this, and, as usual, the excellent photos make me drool with anticipation!

    Oh, my. I do love biscuits n gravy in just about any form. The problem is, the boy does not, so I would end up eating every single crumb & drop… Wait, I don’t think that’s a problem, is it?

  11. Anna Not Specified Not Specified

    Waking up in the morning isn’t so difficult if you are with someone you love and if you smell something as delicious as this for breakfast.

    The sausage gravy is so easy to make…Thanks for sharing!

    green chili, country gravy, sold!

  13. cindy Not Specified Not Specified

    oh. man. I think my husband is awesome, but if he could make me these biscuits w/ gravy and not wake me up for help he’d be even awesomer. I wonder if that guy Bear Grylls could make these next time he’s out in the wilds instead of eating worms…then he’d be an extra dreamy, dreamboat.

    Oh snap! Bizcits and gravee are my husband’s favorite! He makes the gravy with sausage too, and he likes it spicy so this is one he is gonna be all over. Don’t tell him, but sometimes his gravy’s a little floury so I’ll gently guide him in your direction. I’m kind of intimidated by biscuits, why? I don’t know! These look great, and easy. Any additional tips??

  16. Barbara Not Specified Not Specified

    You are so right…this is log cabin breakfast food! I’m loving that gravy!

  28. Raquel Not Specified Not Specified

    I made these and they were amazing! I want to make these biscuits into Mac and Cheese cups. The dough was extremely sticky though, is that how they are supposed to be or was I doing something wrong?
