This shamelessly rich, homey classic is too often mediocre, but it's memorable when made well. Success lies in a creamy gravy tinged with the faint heat of cayenne, eggs sunny-side up, plenty of pepper, and tender, flaky, tangy biscuits.

Just made this for dinner for my hubby and kids,,,I have never attempted anything like this before! I was nervous to say the least. It turned out like we were at a Gourmet Restuarant. I empressed myself. I dont make breakfast things! I do dinner or desserts! He better not get used to it!!! But i made it for dinner so...LOL!! Thanks for the Help!! Definitely Recommend this one to ALL.

You can use buttermilk in place of milk in most recipes. Buttermilk brings out the taste and makes your breads, cakes etc. moist. I would give it a try.

I have a biscuit recipe that I am devoted to. They turn out light, fluffy, and flakey, everytime. The thing I wanted to know is can I substiute buttermilk for the regular milk in this recipe? Does anybody think that the buttermilk may not work because of the thickness of it or the componets of it?
