Southern Comfort Breakfast Bowl


  • 1/2 lb. sausage for gravy
  • 4 slices bacon or one per serving
  • Hash Browns
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 c. milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • Hot biscuits any recipe will do (homemade the best)
  • Creamy grits optional


  1. Prepare and bake your biscuits and have ready for your bowl.
  2. Fry the bacon and set aside.
  3. Prepare the hash browns (or grits) according to package directions. I like the hash browns extra crispy.
  4. Have your eggs ready whether you poach or fry them. Even a quartered boiled egg would be good atop this mound.
  5. Put the sausage in a skillet and brown until no longer pink. Remove from pan and crumble.
  6. Add the flour to the skillet and stir around until it has browned and is cooked. This should take about 5 minutes. Pour in the milk and cook until it starts to thicken.  If you don't like your gravy this thick, then add in a little more milk or water to thin down to the consistency you like them. Add the crumbled sausage to the gravy and stir.
  7. To put together, take a large shallow bowl. First arrange the cooked hash browns by scattering over the bottom of the bowl. Split one of your biscuits and put on top of the hash browns and then pour your sausage gravy on top of the biscuit halves. Add your egg and garnish with a piece of two slices of fried bacon planking (or teetering) across the top of the sausage gravy covered biscuit.
  8. Dig in and enjoy.
