Note: Once a week I share a popular post from the archives. This post was originally published in August 2011.
Saturday morning when we woke up was the first day that we were all home, all day together in a long time. My boys were very tired from youth church camp and so they slept in and skipped their ju jitsu class. We had nothing scheduled until that evening when we went to a movie in the park that our city hosts once a month.
So, how did we start this wonderful lazy day? With biscuits and gravy, one of my family’s favorite breakfasts. And while I’m not a great “from scratch” gravy maker, I make a mean Quick No-Fail Biscuit.
- 2 cups flour (I used freshly ground whole wheat flour)
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 cups milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix ingredients in order given.
Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets and bake for 9-11 minutes.
You can also roll the dough out and cut with knife or cookie cutter.
What are some of your favorite weekend breakfasts?
