Cheddar Biscuits and Tomato Gravy

A few years ago my sisters and I were visiting my cousin Jaime in Miami, and her husband Ben made us the most delicious breakfast of “Biscuits and ‘Mater Gravy”.  Ben is from Mississippi and it sounds a lot better when he says it.  I didn’t eat a lot of biscuits growing up, and had never even heard of tomato gravy…

But this was seriously delicious.  And meat-free!

It’s been on my mind lately, and realized I absolutely had to try to make it…or something close to it.  With a little research I found a tomato gravy recipe online, and I had plenty of biscuit recipes to choose from in my 3-ring binder of printed, ripped, and copied recipes for “someday”.

When the biscuits come out of the oven all hot and fragrant and buttery, you smother them with tomato gravy and dig in.  Then you close your eyes and go to a happy place.  They are that good.
