What is NEKAMO style you ask? When I was a little girl I went away to our church camp. At the time I lived in Kansas and the summer camp was named NEKAMO because girls from Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri all came to this lovely place - thus camp NEKAMO. My mother would come and cook in the kitchen the weeks I went to camp. Not until I became an adult (and mother) did I truly understand this sacrifice. Who would want to spend ALL day in a 100 degree kitchen (on a good day) and cook 3 meals a day? Not me!!! Thank you mom. We were Midwest folks and my mother and I had never heard of "Biscuits and Gravy". The morning she showed up for work and this was on the menu - she told me she felt so sad that the campers had to eat such a "Disgusting" looking dish. She was sure these little girls would not touch the stuff. You can imagine her surprise when the campers trailed in and cheered when they saw what they were having - and scarfed it all down! She went home and put this on our family's menu and it has been a staple ever since!
NEKAMO Biscuits and Gravy 1 package Pillsbury frozen biscuits ( Why make your own when these taste sooooo good) 1 16 oz package Jimmy Dean HOT sausage in tube in the refrigerator section 3 to 4 heaping Tablespoons flour 1 tsp. onion powder 2 cups milk Salt and pepper
Make biscuits according to directions on bag. Brown sausage in pan. Drain grease. Mix flour and onion powder with cooked sausage. Stir. Pour milk over sausage mixture. Stir until thick, about 8 minutes. Salt and Pepper to taste.
Pour sausage gravy over biscuits and prepare to be amazed! YUM!
I made wonderful memories at NEKAMO - and this breakfast was one of them! I am glad this recipe delights my family. My Dad loves his sausage gravy on eggs and his biscuits are reserved for jam or jelly.
