Christmas Breakfast Ideas and an Easy Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits

Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen is guest posting today and this is her dining room table ready for Christmas morning!

Janelle says "On Christmas morning, I am the first one awake ( a big kid at heart). I start out by making cinnamon rolls, biscuits and sausage gravy, brewing coffee, and setting water and orange juice out on the table. Once my cinnamon rolls are baking in the oven, I can hear my son upstairs waking up the girls exclaiming that he has peeked down at the Christmas tree and there are presents to open!

I hurry to place the sausage gravy in the crock pot on warm and place the biscuits in a ceramic bread basket in the microwave (so I can press the 1 to warm them up when we are ready!) My parents and in-laws should be here any second and my part of breakfast is all ready to I can relax and soak up this wonderful time of my motherhood ...(.I mean my children's childhood ha, ha).

We exchange presents, pray and praise, and enjoy breakfast with one brings her egg casserole and my mother-in-law brings the breakfast is the most special morning of the year for so many reasons, the biggest reason being THE ultimate gift...Jesus Christ."

Biscuits, sausage, milk, flour, salt and pepper

Brown sausage on med-high heat, when it is cooked through add flour and turn heat down to low
The flour makes a paste on top of the sausage

Add milk and turn up heat to med-high again

Add salt and pepper and stir constantly until it thickens

Biscuits are ready!

Here you have it! MMMmmmm

Sausage Gravy over Biscuits
1 lb Bob Evan's Sausage (bulk roll)
1 (8 count) container of Grand's Buttermilk Biscuits
1/3 cup flour
3 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

*Bake biscuits according to package instructions- while they are in the oven do the following:

1. Cook sausage in a skillet on med-high heat and crumble into small pieces with a spatula.
2. When sausage is cooked through, turn down heat to low- add flour and stir to make a paste on sausage
3. Add milk, salt and pepper and stir.
4. Turn heat back to med-high while stirring constantly while it thickens
(about 5 mins)

P.S. Because I use "skim milk"..this recipe has no effect on my waistline (LOL)

I pray that the Lord will fill your cup and you are able to share His love with those around you during this very special time of year...Merry Christmas! ~Janelle

I have always been intimidated by gravy. (My granny's is the BEST!) If I ever make it at home, which is rare, I use a packet. I'm so excited to try this!! Thanks for the recipe & for making it look easy. :) Merry Christmas!

PLEASE don't think I'm being disrespectful in anyway. I'm honestly not. But I've started reading the Bible from beginning to end and was surprised to read that God told His people to not eat pigs (they were unclean He said). So now I'm thinking I shouldn't eat pork products. But I know many Christians do and I've never heard it an issue- except among Jewish people. Is there a verse later on in the Bible that says it is okay? (I'm only in 2 Kings right now). This is still very new to me. Was wondering if you could help???

The Levitical law was written for the people of Israel for multiple reasons. One, they did not have the research we have today to know which animals were "clean" and "unclean" or dangerous for their health to eat. God was protecting his people from diseases that would come from eating certain animals.

Also, the law points to the cross. The Israelites had to slaughter sheep, goats, bulls, rams etc. to foreshadow the need for the blood of the lamb - that is our Savior Jesus.

When Jesus died on the cross he fulfilled the law (Matt.5:17,18). And now we are under grace. So nothing in the law today needs to be followed (which is why we do not follow all the other Levitical laws such as sacrificing animals). Jesus fulfilled the law...we are saved by faith by his grace (Eph.2)

Pork is okay to eat :-)! So enjoy!

Thanks for the great breakfast ideas ... they all look sooo good! We often serve a brunch the morning after Christmas, and always fun to try some new things.

Wow, it's so great to get a clear answer on that. There are some things you just don't really think about. Thanks Courtney. And thank you too for sharing the recipes! Yummy!!

Great response and great question. This verse helps too: Acts 10:14 and 15

14 “No, Lord,” Peter declared. “I have never eaten anything that our Jewish laws have declared impure and unclean.[b]”

15 But the voice spoke again: “Do not call something unclean if God has made it clean.”

I have another easy recipe for Christmas morning - make it the night before and put it in the oven when you wake up!

Ok, all this Christmas breakfast talk is making me want to cook something special up along with our simplistic pancake breakfast! LOL I like the idea of cinnamon rolls, at least! :)

I try to make sausage and gravy for my husband as often as possible - he loves it!! I want the egg casserole and the breakfast quiche recipes!!

To Anonymous - Christ came to fulfill the law. With his coming, we were no longer bound by the laws of the old testament. Courtney said it better, though ; )

These all look great. I'm making a breakfast caserole in the crock pot for Christmas morning. Simply dump all the ingredients in before you go to bed, turn it on and wake up to yummy goodness.

Oh my, that gravy looks delish! We do sausage balls on Christmas morning because our family dinner is always the big one (ham, sweet potato casserole, etc, etc), but I will definitely try this another time!

I can smell that biscuits and gravy from here. Delicious, and thanks so much for the response to Anonymous's question. I would not have know how to answer that as I haven't studied the Bible in that much depth. Hmmmm, maybe should put that on my bucket list this year :-) ~ Blessings, Janet

Just wanted to chime in to say that I tried the quiche and it is AMAZING!!! My mom was even here babysitting the day after I made it and had two slices as leftovers and love it.

Courtney is theologically correct! And very well said.

Although we no longer live under the law, it is my feeling that those things God put in writing about diet are for our own good as far as our health is concerned, so my family tries to avoid them as much as possible.

We feel that we will be healthier if we abstain from pork, bottom feeders, etc. (That is not to say we don't indulge periodically.)

However, not everyone is convicted this way, and that is okay.

Turkey sausage is available as a substitute for those who choose not to use pork.
