  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk 2 cups flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a bowl; cut shortening into flour mixture with a pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly. Mix in egg and milk until incorporated. Turn dough out onto a well-floured work surface and knead for 1 minute.
  3. Roll dough out to a thickness of 3/4 to 1-inch thick, cut with a biscuit cutter, and place biscuits onto prepared baking sheet. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Cook and stir sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease. Stir 1/4 cup butter into sausage until butter has melted and mix in 1/4 cup flour until thoroughly combined. Pour evaporated milk and water into sausage mixture, bring gravy to a simmer, and reduce heat to low; simmer gravy until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season gravy with salt and black pepper to taste.
  6. Serve biscuits with sausage gravy.

I used another recipe for biscuits but I used this gravy recipe. This is the best gravy ever!

I am not a big fan of canned milk... do not like the "processed" taste of it. I would use heavy cream, or "Half & Half", or milk. As i do not like the clean-up, i use store-bought, refrigerate...

Used my own biscuit recipe, but the sausage and gravy were outstanding! Our son told me prior to breakfast that he wasn't that wild about sausage/gravy, but he went back for seconds on this!

Excellent... I was put off because several folks said they made the gravy, not the biscuits. They really missed out!! I hate rolling biscuits so I added about 1/8c or less milk then spoon-droppe...
