Sausage & Corn Gravy With Buttermilk Biscuits

My freezer contains a lot of frozen corn that I needed to use up so I came up with a brunch recipe.  Since I was making biscuits plus the gravy, I did use a pre-made turkey breakfast sausage although you could easily make that too.







Sausage & Corn Gravy 

2 cups corn (either fresh cut off the cob or frozen)
2 tbsp flour
1 cup milk (I used 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup cream to use up some cream on hand)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 # turkey breakfast sausage, cooked and drained

Head corn in a large saucepan.  In a covered container with a good seal, shake together flour and milk.  Add into the corn.  When it thickens, add in the breakfast sausage.  Serve over warm biscuits.



Buttermilk Biscuits

Using a food processor, add in ~

2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into slices

Pulse in the food processor until butter is incorporated.  

Pour in ~

1 cup buttermilk.  Pulse just until the dough comes together.  Turn out onto a lightly floured surface.  Pat out dough until it's 1" thick and cut into rounds.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 450°.

Makes 12 biscuits.
