Bisticks and Gravy

Hallie wants recipes so I thought I'd share my ultimate comfort food meal: bisticks and gravy. I learned this recipe from Bernadette's cook boyfriend, Jimmy.
Heart smart bisquick mix
Flax meal
Stick of butter
Gimme lean vegetarian sausitch
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 450. Mix together bisquick, a bit of flax meal, and milk in proportion so it's smooth and sticky. Drop healthy spoonfuls of batter on to pan and bake at 450 for 9 minutes.

Melt a slice of butter in a skillet and add bits of sausitch so it is broken into little chunks. Grill until they begin to brown. Add the rest of the butter and melt. Slowly sprinkle in flour and a bit of milk to the skillet and beat with fork. The flour will not thicken until there is milk and it's boiling temp. Continue to add more milk and flour and stir until you've got a creamy thick gravy. Stir in a bit of salt and LOTS of black pepper.

You should read the ingredients on the bisquick and make sure there is no transfat. When my mother was economizing back in the old days she made her own bisquick which I think was flour, crisco and baking soda.

There is no trans fat, hence it is "heart smart". It probably is just flour and baking soda though.
