A Leaner Camping Biscuits & Gravy Recipe That Idahoans Will Love
Biscuits and gravy on a Saturday morning while camping in the Idaho backcountry might be one of the greatest indulgences life has to offer. Swapping out pork sausage used in traditional recipes for a more a leaner, healthier, lesser-used cut of meat is every bit as delicious and will probably go unnoticed by those who awaken to the breakfast bell.
Biscuits and gravy is a camping dish we love to cook for family and friends when off-grid for a weekend away. Scrambled eggs with peppers, sausage, and cheese rolled up into a breakfast burrito is probably our second most-eaten camping item first thing in the morning. When making biscuits and gravy, we usually use pork, because we generally camp with people that prefer it over other types of meat.
The majority of people I camp with in Idaho are also big fans of bison. I've had it a few times, but I still prefer good old-fashioned pork sausage in mine. A really good bison biscuits and gravy recipe I found recently on nebraskabison.com might be something you may want to test out on your next camping trip to the Sawtooth Mountains.
There are many recipes online that include this less-caloric ground meat that are also pretty amazing. Kansasbuffalo.org also has a good one for people to try.
Packaged, ground bison can be found at most Idaho markets. All you need are some cheap ingredients like flour, milk, salt, pepper, and some Mrs. Dash (optional), and you're good to go.
