FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I'm able to find the canned gravy at Walmart. Libby's is my favorite brand but the great value brand at Walmart is a close second. Or you can but the packaged sausage gravy and make it using the instructions on tieback of the package.
Absolutely! Homemade gravy is pretty simple to make. I have a delicious SAUSAGE GRAVY RECIPE that would perfect with this! You will have some leftovers most likely, but it is great for adding more over the tops of each of your cups! Who doesn't love more gravy?!
Usually breakfast pork sausage is used. It comes in a variety of flavors such as original, mild, hot, sage, maple, etc. You can use your favorite depending on the flavor that you are looking for. If you use the canned gravy it will usually be the original flavor.
If you can't find crescent roll dough sheets or prefer not to use them, you can use regular crescent rolls. Make sure that the perforations are sealed well before cutting. We do not want them to accidentally open up while baking and the gravy to seep out.
You absolutely can and I highly suggest it! You can either bake 12 in one pan and then the remaining after those are finished, or use two muffin pans. You can definitely freeze leftovers for a quick breakfast for on-the-go!
If you are using homemade gravy, make sure the gravy is room temperature or cold. If it is warm, it may cause the cups not to cook up properly and the filling to be too loose and runny.
I don't recommend storing these in the refrigerator for long periods of time because of the gravy, it will make the crescents soggy. Plan on eating these as soon as they are made or within the first 24 hours. Otherwise, you can freeze them by wrapping each one individually in plastic wrap then placing in. a freezer safe container. This will help with freezer burn. Reheat in the microwave until heated through.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- crescent dough sheet
- sausage gravy (I prefer Libby's brand)
HOW TO MAKE BISCUITS AND GRAVY CUPS:
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray 8 sections of a muffin tin with baking spray, use a pastry brush to brush the spray around the cups, this way the pan is evenly coated, set aside.Cut the crescent dough into 8 even sections. Press the dough gently into the 8 sections of the muffin tin, making sure the corners of the dough overlap the sides of the cups.
Evenly distribute the sausage gravy among the cups.
Take the overlapping corners of the dough and fold them over themselves so you form a little package or cup.
Bake for 14-15 minutes until golden brown.
Immediately take the cups out of the muffin tin and serve. Serve with more sausage gravy on top if desired.
