A Trip Down Memory Lane

For many of us, the aroma of old fashioned biscuits baking in a dutch oven brings back fond memories. It’s reminiscent of camp cooking, where biscuits were often made in a camp dutch oven placed over hot coals. The best thing about these biscuits? Cutting them open to reveal the flaky biscuits inside and soaking up every drop of sausage gravy with them.

Mastering the Biscuit Making Process

Creating the perfect dutch oven biscuits involves several steps. It starts with combining the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Once you’ve mixed the dry ingredients, you cut in the cold, cubed butter with a pastry cutter or your hands until it resembles coarse crumbs. A little trick: using a biscuit cutter makes it easier to achieve the desired consistency. Then, you pour in the buttermilk and gently mix until it forms a dough. It’s important not to overwork the dough to keep the biscuits tender and flaky.

Creating the Perfect Gravy

The second part of this delicious food duo is the sausage gravy. The gravy recipe starts with browning the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the sausage is fully cooked, you remove it from the skillet, leaving behind the drippings. Then, you sprinkle flour mixture into the skillet to make a roux. This forms the base of the gravy. Once the roux is golden brown, you slowly whisk in the milk and continue to cook until it thickens.

Adding the Finishing Touches

Once your gravy is thick and creamy, you add the cooked sausage back into the skillet, along with a generous amount of black pepper for a little heat. Some people also like to add a dash of hot sauce for an extra kick. Finally, you pour the gravy over the hot biscuits and serve immediately. There is nothing better than biting into a biscuit topped with creamy, flavorful gravy.

Why Dutch Oven Cooking

Cooking with a dutch oven has become a favorite among lots of people because of the unique flavor it imparts to food. Whether it’s biscuits, a pie iron egg casserole, or a simple recipe for a hearty stew, meals cooked in a dutch oven always seem to have that extra bit of deliciousness. It’s especially perfect for biscuits and gravy, where the cast iron dutch oven helps to achieve the perfect golden brown crust on your biscuits while keeping them soft and fluffy on the inside.

Conclusion: The Joy of Cooking and Sharing

There is a certain joy that comes from cooking and sharing a meal with loved ones. Whether it’s your first time trying out this recipe or you’ve done it countless times before, it’s always an experience to remember. So, gather around the fire, share stories, and enjoy a meal of dutch oven biscuits and gravy. It’s not just about the delicious food, but the love and camaraderie that comes with it.

Cook Time: 30 minutes

This recipe provides a comforting, classic breakfast made easy with a Dutch oven. The perfect blend of fluffy biscuits and rich, creamy gravy will surely be your new favorite for lazy weekend mornings.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 pound sausage
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your outdoor grill or oven to medium-high heat (around 375°F).
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add the cold butter and use your fingers to mix the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the milk and stir until just combined. The dough will be sticky.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times to bring it together. Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle.
  6. Cut the biscuits using a round biscuit cutter or a glass. You should have around 12 biscuits. Place the biscuits in a Dutch oven that's been lined with parchment paper.
  7. Cover the Dutch oven with its lid and place it on the grill or in your indoor oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown.
  8. While the biscuits are baking, prepare the gravy. Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until it's thoroughly browned and cooked through.
  9. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and stir well until the sausage is coated. Cook for another minute.
  10. Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly. Continue to cook the gravy, stirring frequently, until it thickens.
  11. Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste.
  12. Once the biscuits are done, carefully remove the Dutch oven from the grill or indoor oven. Split the biscuits in half and ladle the hot sausage gravy over them.


Remember, you can always add more salt, but you can't take it away. Start with a small amount and add more to taste.
