Photos and recipe: Gina Hansen


For the Biscuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup cold milk

For the Gravy:

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 4 Pieces of Bacon
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon Firecracker Farm Hot Salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)


1. Prepare the Biscuits:

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Gradually add the cold milk, stirring just until the dough comes together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 3-4 times. Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick round.
  • Use a biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside.

2. Make the Gravy:

  • In a large skillet, cook the sausage and bacon over medium heat until browned and fully cooked.
  • Remove the sausage and Bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the drippings in the skillet.
  • Add the flour to the skillet and whisk constantly for about 1-2 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Gradually whisk in the milk, making sure there are no lumps.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently until the gravy thickens, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in the cooked sausage, Firecracker Farm Hot Salt, black pepper, salt, garlic powder (if using). Adjust the seasoning to taste.

3. Serve:

  • Split the warm biscuits in half and place them on plates.
  • Spoon the spicy sausage gravy over the biscuits.
  • Sprinkle a bit more Firecracker Farm Hot Salt on top if desired for an extra kick.


  • Adjust the amount of Firecracker Farm Hot Salt to your preferred level of spiciness.
  • For a creamier gravy, you can add an extra 1/2 cup of milk.
