I watch the show Eat Street on the Cooking Channel because I love food trucks. Whenever there’s one near me I stop and get something, anything. One of the episodes of Eat Street had the host, James Cunningham, stop at the Biscuits + Groovy trailer in Austin, TX. Because Anita and I love biscuits and gravy I knew instantly that I was going to make some of the dishes they serve up. I mean, dang, look at the menu! Everything sounds fantastic, including The Johnny Hash. Biscuits, white pepper gravy, diced potatoes, bacon and breakfast sausage, topped with cheese and garnished with green onions. This ain’t no light breakfast, it’s the breakfast of champions!
I’m definitely not a food industry expert, but I do recognize a good concept when I see it. All of the biscuit dishes from Biscuits + Groovy start with great buttermilk biscuits. You can then build from there, like with the Johnny Hash, which is definitely loaded with all things good and breakfasty.
If I was anywhere near Austin, Texas right now I’d be in line at the Biscuits + Groovy trailer and my stomach would be growling!
Also try the Biscuits + Groovy The Donna Summer.
Biscuits + Groovy The Johnny Hash
For the white pepper gravy
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk plus more depending on how thick or thin you like your gravy
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
For the white gravy
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
- Whisk in the flour.
- Whisk in the milk until smooth. Gravy will continue to thicken. If too thick add a bit more milks.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
For the biscuits, breakfast links and bacon
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Add the sausage links and bacon.
- Bake for 20 minutes. Flip links and bacon. Cook for 5 more minutes then remove the links. Continue to cook until done. Remove and let cool slightly before chopping the bacon and slicing the links into bite-sized pieces. Note: If you want a little crispiness to your links place them under the broiler for 2-3 minutes after you've removed the bacon.
- In the other pan, place the biscuits and cook per package instructions.
Making the biscuits
- Split biscuits and place on a plate.
- Add potatoes, gravy, meats and cheese.
- Top with chives or green onions. Serve.
