This is one of my very favorite meals. And this is also just about as easy to make as it gets. Total time to make this recipe is only about 30 minutes, measuring cup to table.
One note, the recipe I am showing is the one I use a lot. I generally decide to make this on the spur of the moment so I don't have any buttermilk handy for the biscuits. SO I use a little cheat, combine milk and vinegar, stir, let sit for about 5 minutes and you have a pretty close substitution. Adds a little extra zing to the biscuits over plain milk.
I am also in love with the cost. If you watch for sales, about every couple of months you can usually find a "tube" of bulk sausage for sale for only 1 dollar a pound. When that happens, stock up and freeze em. I buy 20 at a time and usually run out before the next sale starts. Shopping wisely, this entire meal comes in a t about $2 - $3 TOTAL, 50 Cents a serving!
