Campfire Biscuits and Gravy....and this time I didn't burn them :)

Some biscuits and spicy sausage gravy over the campfire....

I oiled my foil pan, added my biscuits, covered them with another oiled pan and then wrapped them in foil to keep them together. Then flipped over the fire for even cooking.

Browned my spicy sausage and fried some tatoes and onions.....

After the sausage browned, I added flour and seasonings, then milk....

Heated the gravy until bubbly.....

Yeah... I didn't burn them this time. :)

My spicy sausage gravy over biscuits, fried tatoes and onions... and some fruit. :)

It was an easy campfire breakfast after a long night of admiring the moon (fishing).

Have you ever tried making "stick biscuits" over the fire? Those are awesome and you can fill them with anything.

Chris, I haven't made those since I was a little girl. It brings back memories!
You are right, they are really awesome. Thanks for mentioning them!:)

lol Thanks Mike,
Sorry to hear he didn't go for it. :)
How about a drum cooker? I can help you put one of those together...there's no welding involved.

Take care and thanks again Mike!

Found your site while searching for camping recipes and am dying to make this when we start camping next month!! But is there anyway you could post your specific recipe, like the amounts of sausage, flour, & milk so I can try to make it myself? If you would that would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Hi Cassandra!
These are so easy to make, you have to flip and turn the biscuits often though so they won't burn. :)

I use 1 pound of bulk sausage. The Jimmy Dean Hot sausage is great.
After it browns, add 2 TBs of flour, cook that a bit, the add enough milk to cover the sausge ( I don't measure the milk, just eyeball it)
Stir until thick and add more milk if needed.

Probably close to 3 cups of milk.
Season with salt and pepper if needed.
Hope it turns out well for you.
Have a great camping trip... I'm sooo ready for spring and camping. lol

About how long would you say the biscuits take?

cowgirl said...

They take about 20 to 25 minutes.. but need to be flipped and rotated frequently. Good luck!
