Are you drooling yet?

Oh me, oh my I'm in seventh heaven.  I was a bit worried because last time I was in Missouri, a restaurant I stopped at for biscuits and gravy had the worlds worst gravy.  (I embarrassed my father by asking for a sample of the gravy before ordering.)  I guess I had a gut feeling and I'm glad I did because that would have been tragic to order but this ... is a very different story.  This morning I had some of the best biscuits and gravy that I can remember eating!

Biscuits and Gravy with a Side of Eggs
I decided that I'd better take a serving of eggs so that I'd get a bit more protein.  Although I LOVE biscuits and gravy the high carbs at breakfast is probably a very unhealthy choice.  But it was SO GOOD! 
They used a milk and cornstarch base with just enough freshly ground pepper to give a periodic kick.  It was loaded with ground sausage which was either salty enough not to add more salt or the cook knew how to delicately salt without leaving an excessive salty taste in the mouth.  It was perfection!  Now I have high expectations once again. 
I make a very good sausage gravy but I must say that this morning's gravy was better than any that I've made in recent years.
