Love and marriage. Romeo and Juliet. Rock and roll. Some things just go together – like biscuits and gravy. Each is good on their own but together, they can make your eyes roll back in your head.Biscuits and gravy

Biscuits and gravy is a popular breakfast dish in the United States – though any time of day is a good time for this combo. The dish was popularized after the American Revolutionary War when food was scarce, but people knew how important breakfast was to fuel them for a long day of hard work. Biscuits and gravy is inexpensive and it’s a great-tasting meal to make.

Today biscuits and gravy is still a popular dish especially in the South. The traditional dish consists of soft biscuits covered with a sausage-based gravy but of course, we know how to veganize anything.
