Quick-and-easy biscuits and gravy is a common meal in our household. A tube of biscuits, a roll of sausage, a little flour, salt and pepper, and milk and 15 minutes later you’ve got breakfast. Well, this biscuits and Tasso gravy isn’t that version of biscuits and gravy. This is beyond that. Way, way, way beyond it. Gravy made with spicy Tasso is amazing. Spicy, complex, melt-in-your-mouth Tasso just makes a world of difference.

Biscuits and Tasso Gravy

The original recipe for biscuits and Tasso gravy calls for using creme fraiche, which I could not find the day I went to the market. I ended up substituting sour cream, which has a different texture and slightly different taste, but the end result was still fantastic.

I made the gravy in my cast iron skillet. I think gravy is always better out of cast iron.

I made the Tasso on my Weber Smokey Mountain smoker. It takes a few days to prepare, but oh is it ever worth the time.
