Do you guys watch The Kitchen on Food Network?
I LOVE this show so much! This combination of personalities, the different flavors they bring to the table… it all works beautifully. And, it’s funny!
It’s on every Saturday and Sunday morning on Food Network, and if you’re not watching it today, give it a try! It’s the only Food Network show that I DVR, for example.
So… I was watching a few weeks ago and the team was playing with different things that they could make in a waffle iron. Host Katie Lee shared an awesome idea to make biscuits and gravy quicker, using the waffle iron! Genius!
Katie’s recipe called for refrigerated biscuits and full-fat sausage, but mine is much lighter with a few of my NTTC tricks… and it’s MUCH faster than my original biscuits and gravy recipe, since you don’t have fire up the oven or wait for the biscuits to cook. This is a fast and easy must-try breakfast. I may have eaten it on Saturday AND Sunday this weekend…
Lightened Up Waffled Biscuits and Gravy
For the Waffle:
1/3 cup Bisquick – Heart Smart baking mix
1/4 cup skim milk
For the Gravy
1/2 cup skim milk
1 Morning Star Original Sausage Patty
1 Tbsp. Bisquick – Heart Smart baking mix
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1. Preheat your waffle iron. Whisk the waffle ingredients in a small bowl, forming a creamy batter.
2. Once your iron is hot, spray lightly with cooking spray. Pour batter into iron, and cook for 1-2 minutes taking care not to allow the waffle to burn.
3. To make the gravy, add the milk, bisquick, onion powder, salt, and pepper to a small saucepan. Cook your frozen sausage patty in the microwave for 30 seconds. Cut into small pieces. Add it to the pan. Note: The onion powder really makes this gravy. Don’t leave it out!
4. Whisk the gravy and heat it to medium heat, until it begins to bubble. Whisk continuously, making sure it doesn’t overcook/burn. Overcooked gravy achieves a paste-like consistency. You’re looking for a creamy smooth consistency.
5. Pour over your waffle, and serve immediately. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
