Units Scale

For the biscuits:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk

For the gravy:

  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. 
  2. In a bowl stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbles. Make a well in the center, add milk all at once. Stir just until dough clings together.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or or pat dough to ½ inch thickness. With a pizza cutter slice the dough into 1 inch square pieces. 
  4. Spray an 8×8 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place half of the dough pieces in the bottom of the pan and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.
  5. Add uncooked sausage into Instant Pot. Break up meat. Pour in the broth. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 5 minutes. When time is up move valve to venting and remove the lid.
  6. In a large glass measuring cup whisk the flour into the milk a little at a time until smooth. Turn Instant Pot to sauté setting and pour the mix mixture into the pot. Stir until gravy thickens and gets bubbly. Stir in the salt and pepper. Turn off Instant Pot.
  7. Pour half of the gravy over the biscuits in the bottom of the pan. Then top with the rest of the uncooked biscuit pieces. Bake for another 10-12 minutes. Then pour the rest of the gravy over the top.
  8. Cut and serve and enjoy!


You can also use a large can of refrigerated biscuit dough in the place of homemade dough.

I used my 3 quart mini Instant Pot* for this recipe but you can also use a 6 or 8 quart pot.
