A few weeks ago I showed you my simple way to make ricotta cheese and shared one of the ricotta recipes we really like, Gnocchi. I also promised few more recipes and here's another keeper - ricotta cheese biscuits.
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 large egg
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup yogurt, kefir, or whey
Mix dry ingredients, then mix egg, ricotta, and whey. Stir both mixtures together with a fork. Shape into biscuits and bake at 425° F (218° C) for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve right away.
The gravy has nothing to do with ricotta cheese, but biscuits and sausage gravy are a favorite supper for us. Someday soon it will be our own homegrown sausage!
1 lb ground sausage
a couple tablespoons flour (white works best)
2 cups milk (there abouts)
salt and pepper to taste
Brown sausage in a cast iron skillet. Scoop out and set aside. Pour off all but a couple tablespoons of melted sausage grease. Whisk the flour into the hot grease, stirring for several minutes. Slowly add the milk, whisking vigorously to prevent lumps. Return the sausage to the gravy. Stir and cook until the gravy thickens. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Serve hot over those biscuits.
