CHEDDAR BISCUITS AND GRAVY

8 Nov

Okay , So  tis is well worth the little bit of extra effort.

1  1/2 lb. ground pork

2 Tsp. each

Thyme,  Sage,  Ginger,  Marjoram,  Garlic powder,  Onion powder, Salt,  Fresh ground pepper Brown sugar,

1 big splash maple syrup

1  heaping     Tbsp      

I LOVE this stuff ,    if you like garlic  …    you are going to start using this on all kind of things

( or if not use your favorite hot sauce  —- won’t be as good tho )

1 TSP fresh ground black pepper

Mix this altogether real good , wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.

IN THE MORNING………………….

2 cups flour

4 TSP baking powder

1/4 TSP baking soda

3/4 TSP salt

1 TSP sugar

3 TBSP cold butter

3 TBSP cream cheese

1 cup cold Buttermilk

2 TBSP melted butter

PINCH OF BAKING SODA

1 cup freshly shredded cedar cheese – ( buy block cheese and shred it yourself , tastes better and it doesn’t have whatever weird chemical they put on bagged shredded cheese to keep it from clumping  – never thought about that did you ?  )

1/2 onion  chopped

1 PINT  1/2 and 1/2

Handful chopped fresh parsley

Heat oven to 450′

IN a large mixing bowl,  combine flour, baking powder,  baking soda and salt

Add butter and cream cheese  , mix with fingertips or use 

you have probly seen this but didn’t know what was for…..its a pastry cutter ,  as in cutting in the butter or shortening into the flour for pie crust or Biscuits

They are pretty cheap and do a real  good job. ( or you can use a fork  )

Mix until the flour mix looks pretty evenly crumbly.   ( Faster the better you don’t want the fats to melt , that why you use a cutter)

at this point you can put this into the freezer to rechill for 15 min  —  if you want

Pour melted butter into buttermilk stirring and a pinch of baking soda

Mix buttermilk into flour mix just until it comes together

Fold  in I cup shred cheese.

Turn out on to a floured countertop

Fold over on itself 5 or 6 times and push out to a big round,   about inch thick.

Cut out biscuits using a 3 inch cutter

Place biscuits on parchment paper covered baking sheet so that they just barely kiss   This actually helps them rise in the oven,,, Really !

Bake for 15 min.  CHECK at 13 ovens are all different

IN THE MEANTIME :

Fry up 1/2 the pork sausage with 1/2  chopped onion     – crumbling

Take the rest of the pork sausage and  make 3 inch  patties ,  and fry

Add 1/2 and 1/2 and 1 TBSP flour,  salt and pepper   to browned crumbled pork sausage and simmer to thicken up

Spilt biscuits in half,  top each half with a pattie pour gravy over the top and sprinkle with parsley.

Eat and Enjoy !
