Shrimp and sausage gravy over biscuits

Print Friendly and PDF

Y'all. This is one of my favorite side dishes to make. It really can be a meal all alone- what a wonderful Brunch dish! The gravy is so full of flavor it hits every part of your mouth. If you don't have biscuits or don't want to make them, you can dip with Ritz crackers or put it on baguette toast. Any way you pair it, you will love it!
