RECIPE BACKSTORY
The sausage biscuit and gravy came up here w/ my Grandma Scotts family from the southern states. It was served w/ breakfast foods. Shit on a Shingle I got from my mom Barb Fankhauser. She made hers w/ chipped beef. There is also more gravy mixes using this basic recipe. My mom used the hamburger gravy and a friend told us of the fried bologna version. Basically the sausage gravy is over biscuits, the chipped beef and bologna is over buttered toast and the hamburger one is usually served over mashed potatoes, french fries or noodles. I'll put all the variations of this recipe dwn below.
