Biscuits and Gravy: a Morning Classic or Dinnertime Favorite?

I was planning a fancy grilled cheese for dinner the other night, (which I will feature later post) when my husband begged me for biscuits and gravy on a Sunday night. So, I quickly whipped up the classic breakfast food. It’s made with simple ingredients, in simple steps and in very little time. This is awesome anytime but especially when are in a time crunch.

I first saw a recipe this simple from the Pioneer Woman and I tweaked it a little to fit within our lifestyle. You will notice that we use Original Almond Milk because about 2 years ago, we quit using Dairy milk. That’s a long story but essentially we were never made to drink it and I’m lactose intolerant. Almond milk has a thicker texture consistent with 2% to whole milk, so it’s a great substitute for any cooking or baking endeavor! Also, always feel free to tweak my recipes for your lifestyle!!!
