Sausage Gravy and Biscuits with Tomatoes – A hearty country breakfast of sausage gravy served over biscuits with baked, herbed tomato slices on the side.

Y’all know how much I love sharing old recipes with you. Especially southern comfort food recipes! Nothing against new ones. I even enjoy coming up with something different on my own once in a while. But…sometimes nothing beats old-fashioned, down-home, tried-and-true cooking.

Take this recipe for Sausage Gravy and Biscuits for example. I’ve been making this recipe for decades and I’m still not tired of it.

Now, it’s certainly not something we eat every morning, but when I do cook it, we thoroughly enjoy it. With pleasure. No guilt.

The herby, baked tomatoes are a touch I added fairly recently, and honestly, I think they make this delectable dish even more delicious.

They’re drizzled with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of Herbes de Provence but don’t worry if you don’t have that. Use a little mixed Italian seasoning. Or just a bit of oregano. Heck, just skip the herbs and use salt and pepper. Still delicious.

And for the sausage use whatever you like. I use a mild breakfast sausage and let each person add red or black pepper to his or her heart’s desire. For the biscuits, of course I use my traditional south Georgia buttermilk biscuit recipe. Use what you want. Frozen, canned, or homemade. Leftover rolls or toasted, day old bread. It’s all good!

How to Make Sausage Gravy and Biscuits with Tomatoes

Prepare the tomatoes and let them bake while you make the sausage gravy.

Tomato slices drizzled with oil and sprinkled with herbs on a baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Slice the tomatoes into thick slices, about 1/2″ each. Place the slices on a baking sheet drizzled with half the olive oil.

Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the tomato slices and sprinkle with Herbes de Provence, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Don’t worry if you don’t have Herbes de Provence on hand. You can also use an Italian seasoning mixture, or just a little dried oregano, or just salt and pepper.

Bake the tomato slices for about 10 minutes or until they’re softened and just beginning to brown.

Sausage cooking in a skillet.

To make the sausage gravy, add the sausage to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Break the sausage up as it cooks using a wooden spoon or potato masher. Cook until no pink color remains.

Adding flour to sausage cooking in a skillet.

At this point, if you think you have too much grease from the sausage, you can drain some off some before you add the flour. You’ll need to keep at least 2 or 3 tablespoons of fat with the sausage.

I typically use the Jimmy Deen brand of sausage and I never need to drain it. I find that it’s not nearly as fat as some of the other brands.

Sprinkle the flour over the cooked sausage and remaining fat in the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes.

Milk added to sausage in a skillet.

Gradually add the milk. Bring the mixture back to the boil, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan until ready to serve.

Serve the gravy over warm biscuits with the tomato slices on the side.

  1. Dear Lana, Thank you for all your “good food” recipes. I must tell you though, I grew up in a very poor southern household, Oklahoma, and my Mama would fix gravy a lot, however because milk was at a premium and we didn’t always have anything but an icebox, no electricity, she would use half milk and half water for the gravy. And to this day when I make gravy I do the same thing. Actually, when we had to, she would use canned (evaporated) milk and use 1/3 milk and 2/3 water, still very good. Anyway, thank you!

  2. If you substitute buttermilk in the place of whole milk in the bisquic biscuit recipe makes them just like scratch made buscuits. I love sausage n gravy biscuits and will try this recipe.

  3. Unfortunately, I never had “Biscuits & Gravy” , but my hubby loves that breakfast dish! He orders it every Saturday morning at our local diner…. because I usually ‘sleep-in’ on Saturday mornings after my ‘very busy’ work schedule! I will surprise him (very soon) with your delicious “Biscuits & Gravy” for ‘supper’…. since long ago I have set aside one evening a week to have ‘Breakfast for Supper’. It’s fun & easy, and we always enjoy it with a pot of freshly brewed coffee, and with a “Screwdriver’ (instead of a plain old glass of Orange Juice.) After all, it must be 5 O’CLOCK SOMEWHERE! You mentioned that you used “Jimmy Dean Sausage” in this recipe, so I’ll attempt to find it at our local market. I hope I can find it, since I’m not familiar with that product. I decided not to make your delicious sounding biscuits (from scratch), but I’ll make some very quick & easy “Bisquick” biscuits, instead. Don’t laugh….they’re not too bad after they’re slathered with gravy, I’m sure it will all taste incredible! I have many tomatoes, so I’ll hollow-out a couple of them – & stuff them with ‘lite’ cottage cheese mixed with finely chopped fresh herbs…(parsley, dill, & basil.) I can’t wait to prepare & serve this dish! I’m sure we’ll love it!

  4. It has been too too too too long since I have had biscuits and gravy. And sausage gravy is my favorite. Oh my—suddenly I am starving!

  5. I love classic recipes too. There’s something so comforting about things you’ve eaten for years and years. And goodness, this looks dig-in ready.

  6. This just screams delicious comfort! Do you hear that? That’s my stomach, pulling me in the direction of the kitchen. I need to make this!

    1. Listen to your stomach and let it pull you right on into the kitchen! Hope you enjoy the recipe, Angela.
