spicy sausage country gravy with buttermilk biscuits

\ Biscuits. Sausage. Gravy. What’s not to love? I love me some good biscuits & gravy and saw this recipe from one of my go-to sites, A Cozy Kitchen. I didn’t make my biscuits from scratch.. I bought the ready-to-bake ones where you just throw them in the oven. The gravy alone was good but with spicy sausage? SO GOOD! My gravy was too thick at first so you can just keep adding a little bit of milk to thin it out. Pour the gravy over biscuits and eat right away! Oh and I added an egg on one because why not? An egg just makes it better 🙂 Recipe for Spicy Sausage Country Gravy with Buttermilk Biscuits courtesy of: http://acozykitchen.com/spicy-sausage-country-gravy/ Ingredients: 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided 1/4 pound Italian spicy sausage 1 tablespoon shallot minced (about 1/2 small shallot) 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 cup whole milk 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard (possibly more to taste) Sea salt Directions: 1.

make this for breakfast: croque madame

  One of my favorite entrees to order for breakfast is croque madame. What’s not to love about it? It’s an ooey gooey plate of deliciousness that includes ham, cheese & egg. A Cozy Kitchen has become one of my go-to sites now for great recipes. I have a long list of recipes waiting to be attempted.. the recipes are easy to follow & everything I have made so far has been satisfying. Including this recipe for croque madame! First, you make the yummy cheesy sauce, then spread it on sliced bread. Add mustard, ham, more sauce & cheese and then you cook the sandwiches in a pan. Finally, you add more sauce on top, stick in the oven and add a fried egg on top! It’s soooo good. It ain’t a healthy dish but it definitely is good. I might even add MORE sauce next time I make it. 🙂 🙂 Recipe for Croque Madame courtesy of: http://acozykitchen.com/croque-madame/ Ingredients: 5 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 cups whole milk 1/4 teaspoon salt …

bread it, fry it, bake it, top it

The title sounds easy enough right? I’m talking about easy steps for making chicken milanese aka breaded chicken that is fried or baked or both! It can get messy but it’s a simple 3-step process to bread chicken: first you lightly cover the chicken with flour; then you dip it in egg; lastly, you coat it with bread crumbs. Once you finish breading and frying the chicken, you can get creative with your toppings. Take for example this delightful recipe from A Cozy Kitchen for Chicken Milanesa, Uruguayan Style. The breading has more of a kick and after the chicken is fried, it is topped with a slice of ham, shredded mozzarella & a fried egg. Can you say YUM! For the other half of my chicken breasts, I decided to add marinara & cheese aka chicken parmesan. Same breading process but after frying the chicken, I topped the chicken with grated parmesan cheese, marinara sauce & a slice of provolone. You can add as much cheese & marinara as you want. Pop the chicken …
