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.

The traditional dish consists of soft biscuits covered with a sausage-based gravy but of course, we know how to veganize anything.
