Biscuits and Gravy

A perfect hearty breakfast for a late start or layover day. While the biscuits are more like pancakes, the taste is pure traditional biscuits and country gravy.

Serves 3-4


  • 1 package Just Add Water Biscuit or Pancake Mix
  • 1 package Instant Country Gravy
  • 2 & 2/3 cups of water.
  • 1 small plastic container of cooking oil
  • 1 bag bacon bits topping (optional)

Pre-Trip Preparation:

  • If using bulk biscuit mix, pre-measure into plastic zip lock bag and label.

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Pour country gravy mix into a small sauce pan.
  2. Very gradually whisk 2 cups cold water into the gravy mix.
  3. While stirring, bring gravy mix to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 1 minute.
  4. In a small bowl, combine biscuit mix with 2/3 cup water. Stir until there are no lumps.
  5. Oil a small fry pan and bring to medium heat (a drop of water should sizzle and dance in the pan).
  6. Spoon in batter, covering with a lid or foil to accelerate cooking.
  7. Flip pancake when bubbles form and edges dry.  They should be golden brown.
  8. Cook a few minutes more on other side, then serve hot smothered with warm country gravy.

Biscuit and GravyNotes:

  • Serve with pre-cooked bacon, or sprinkle top with bacon bits.
