down home sausage gravy and biscuits.

this is a PERFECT warm weather fix.  there's nothing better than biscuits and gravy.

1 pkg Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles
1 tbsp butter
1/2 c milk
1 c flour
1/3 c water
1 pkg of your favorite biscuits

first, brown sausage with butter in a frying pan on medium heat.  add milk.  in a separate bowl, mix the flour and water together.  when flour hits heat, it tends to become lumpy, so this helps to make it a smooth texture to start with.  when milk comes to a boil, slowly add flour mixture stirring constantly.  remove from heat when desired consistency is reached.  the more heat, the thicker the gravy will be.

it's THAT easy.  see?  you can do it, too!

personal favorite substitution:  replace the sausage with budding beef (cut up into small pieces) and you have my mama's delicious chipped beef and gravy.
