take my word for it wednesday.. these mini biscuits and sausage gravy are perfect for brunch!!

 
 
 
these little guys came about totally unintentionally.. i was making biscuits for my biscuit burger {recipe soon} and i had some left dough and thought i would make mini biscuits.. then i remembered i had some breakfast sausage and whipped up some gravy and viola..
 

this could easily be served on a brunch menu or if serving little ones they would love the mini biscuits..


or as a little appetizer.. 


 if you have ever made biscuits and they turned out like hockey pucks this recipe is for you.. they are so light and fluffy and only 3 ingredients!! yes you read that right!! 3.. you could serve this with honey and jam.. anytime a little bite is wanted..
