I love me some biscuits and sausage gravy. Today I’ll show you how to make Sourdough Buttermilk Biscuits and tomorrow will show you how to make my own version of Sausage Gravy. Hope you enjoy.
Put 1 cup sourdough starter, 1 cup buttermilk and 1 egg (all at room temperature) in a bowl. Blend together and mix in 2 1/4 teaspoons dry yeast.
In another bowl (I use a wooden bowl in the video) sift together 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons baking powder. Using a pastry blender, quickly cut 1/2 cup cold butter into the flour mixture. Working quickly mix the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture until a soft dough forms and the pulls away from the side of the bowl. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and gently briefly knead. Pat into 1/2 inch disk. Cut the biscuits and place on lightly greased baking sheet.
Cover and let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place. Bake in pre-heated oven at 425 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately. Check tomorrow for how to serve with my very own sausage gravy. Or serve with honey and butter. Yum.
