    Polenta Biscuits with Sausage Gravy
    Recipe adapted from Nate Appleman, Pulino's, New York
    Yield: 6 servings
      Polenta biscuits
      2 cups all-purpose flour
      ½ cup fine or medium-ground cornmeal
      2 teaspoons baking powder
      2 teaspoons sugar
      1 teaspoon salt
      ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
      ⅔ cup buttermilk
      10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
      Sausage gravy:
      1 pound breakfast sausage, casings removed
      ½ cup all-purpose flour
      5 cups whole milk
      ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
      ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
      2 sprigs sage
      1 bay leaf
      1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
      ¾ teaspoon salt
    1. Make the polenta biscuits: Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the melted butter, then pour over the dry ingredients. Mix with a rubber spatula until the dough comes together in a ball.
    2. Using a measuring cup, form six ½-cup clumps of dough, dropping each onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden on the bottom.
    3. While the biscuits bake, make the sausage gravy: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks, until browned, about 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve.
    4. Add the flour to the fat in the pan and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the milk, black pepper, red pepper flakes, sage and bay leaf and increase the heat to medium-high. Bring the gravy to a simmer and cook until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and discard the sage and bay leaf. Return the sausage to the pan and stir in the vinegar and salt.
    5. Divide the biscuits (halved if desired) among 6 plates. Top with the gravy and serve.

    Drop biscuits are my favorite because they are so care free easy to make. There are endless variations.
