How do you make the gravy without the drippings from the sausage you cooked and why are you using canned biscuits instead of biscuits made from scratch. If your going to use canned biscuits just get the canned sausage gravy to put over them. Whoever considered this to be a Vintage Biscuits and Sausage Gravy receipe in your shop needs to be shot.

I totally agree using Biscuits from scratch not canned biscuits. Not the same.

Since when can you get. Vintage biscuits in a can? How do you make sausage gravy without the. Drippings I've been making biscuits and gravy for at least 40 years, this is not how to do it. Keep Looking

Serve with slices of tomato for a real treat

deepend333, I also do not use canned ANYTHING if I can avoid it. This recipe must be a joke by calling it " VINTAGE ". I have a recipe that I got from Taste of Home about 14 years ago for yeast biscuits, " Angel Biscuits " . See if you can't find it. They are worth the time it takes.

I don't believe using canned biscuits is vintage.....why not go that extra mile and make homemade...there's nothing better

Hi Grandmama1954, Thanks for the tip. I'm sure many of our readers will love to try it this way. -Editors at RecipeLion

I use Pillbury Grands for this recipe with fantastic results. When frying the sausage, add a 1/4 cup of finely chopped onions, then add a pinch of red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp garlic granules to the sausage to the mix and you have a most wonderful biscuit and gravy with a kick. :)

Canned biscuits? Why?

@Chef 1669212: Thanks for your input! -- Editors of RecipeLion

Don't use canned biscuits. Make them from Bisquik or Jiffy Mix or anything but NOT canned biscuits. Canned are OK for butter or jelly or honey and eating with your fingers but NOT for eating with a fork and covered in gravey. Canned do not have the texture to carry the gravey and sausage. Some stores even carry frozen and/or ready made biscuits that are quite good.

bisquik or jiffy mix? WHY? Scratch biscuits only take about 5 min. longer to make and taste much better.
