Biscuits and Gravy (Request) by Bon-AppetEats Biscuits and Gravy (Request) by Bon-AppetEats
Tiny plate of biscuits and sausage gravy with two breakfast sausages on the side.

Every so often, I will get stuck while streaming and ask viewers for ideas on what I should do next, and they never fail me with brilliant, challenging ideas. :)

:iconthe-great-chanchan: offered up the idea of biscuits and gravy the other night. I have never made biscuits in clay, let alone gravy, so I was tentative at first to try it. But then I thought that if I don't push myself, I'll never improve.

No tutorials *anywhere* on the biscuits or the gravy, so I pulled up some photos from google and set to work. I think it was a success. :)

This is awesome, what kind of gravy is this though? I always think of gravy as translucent brown beef stuff or yellowish chickeny stuff. Huh. Can't say I've ever come across this dish either, but I like your rendition of it! :D

Here's a recipe and description: [link]

It's a sausage gravy, which is a LOT heavier than standard gravy. It's got cream and sausage and it's really rich. I can't eat it. :P So you take that and just pour it all over some buscuits and that's it! I think it's disgusting but a lot of people like it. :P

Wow, I followed your link and that looks and sounds like an abomination. I'm sure it might be okay...but damn. Those biscuits don't even look like biscuits. D: (the ones used in the recipe you linked). What exactly does the recipe mean by biscuits? Because I guess over here what I'd call a biscuit is a cookie to people in the US.

Biscuits here are like small rolls I guess. They're flakey and buttery and really good...without the gravy. :P It's a very southern thing, since I'd never seen it served anywhere until I moved to Florida.

It's funny, when I was looking for pictures of buscuits I kept getting cookies on google. XD

Oh, well they sound quite nice. But the biscuits and gravy sounds horrid. Well, more specifically the gravy sounds nasty xD i mean it's made of milk and grease...yuck =P Never seen those kind of biscuits over here though.

I've never been a fan of gravy, but it looks perfect here! Could you please give me some hints on how you made it?

Make a cream colored clay (start with white, a little translucent, a tiny bit of darker yellow and tan) then add TLS to it. Mix it up like you would for frosting but leave some lumps. Add a drop or two of clay conditioner to make it easier to spread. I shaved a tiny bit of black chalk on top to look like pepper. :)

I added this to my list of tutorials so it'll be easier to understand then.

Wow, thanks! :D I dunno, I've just always had trouble mixing TLS and clay properly. It always ends up too transparent! Practice, practice, practice! :D

Really? I have that issue when I try to color it with chalk. And yes, it's all practice!

No grits, just the biscuits and gravy. :) I'm getting some bowls in the mail soon so I may try making those next!

That site gets buggy sometimes for no reason. :/ My chat panel wasn't working right the rest of the night either. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

Something tells me if you had the "not free" version those problems wouldn't be nearly as severe. I think it's a ploy to get people to pay.

I agree completely there. I am going to upgrade when I get enough viewers, though, for better resolution/quality. :)
