Hamburger Gravy Over Biscuits

Before you look at the picture and run.... don't!   I know it doesn't look delicious, but this dinner was to die for!!! I must admit, I was skeptical.  I thought the short ingredient list meant this recipe would be bland, but it was soooooo good!!! And a very economical meal at that.   Try it... then thank me.  :)  Found on while trying to find a generic gravy recipe.  Such an unexpected find!!!  This recipe is culinary genius I tell you!!!

1 pound hamburger meat
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2 cups milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp butter
1 1/4 tsp ground sage
salt & pepper to taste (I used about 1/4 tsp salt... 1/8 tsp pepper)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tube refrigerated biscuits of your choice


Bake the biscuits per directions.  

Meanwhile, crumble the ground beef into a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Leave the grease (yummy!!) . Add the onions, and cook for a few more minutes. 

Pour 1 cups of the milk into the pan, and stir to scrape up any bits of food that could burn on the bottom of the pan. Mix in the chicken broth, butter, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently

 Slowly mix the flour into the last cup of milk until smooth. Slowly pour into the skillet, stirring constantly. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken. If the gravy is too thick, thin with a little bit of milk. If it is too thin, simmer longer, or add more flour. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.  

Serves 4
