“This is a slightly modified version of my beloved Mom's (her grandkids called her Merm) recipe. My family loves this stuff and they insist I make it for breakfast every holiday and sometime for dinner. I serve it by putting the buttered biscuits on a big plate, smothering them with the gravy and then topping them with either scrambled or over-easy eggs, depending on the preference of the person eating them. This is pure comfort food for my family!”
