    When I grew up we always had "gravy and biscuits" for breakfast. Everyone here calls it that. It probably wasn't until I was in college that I heard it called "biscuits and gravy".

    This has been troubling me for about a year now. I've been wondering if it was a norton/south thing, or just regionally different. What do they call it where you are from?

    It's a mixture of flour, grease, and water (or milk) baked in an oven topped with a mixture of flour, grease, and milk prepared in a pan. Might not be good for you, but it sure is good!

    Biscuits and gravy.

    Edit: looking at my signature line. Don't know it that applies here! :D

    Most definitely biscuits and gravy..... Just like mashed potatoes and gravy... Do not trifle with the food gods, for their fury leads to much bowel irritation.

    Just finished my 'day off' breakfast.....

    strips of ham in the frypan, cover with 5 eggs, a little black pepper and some grated cheddar. Let cook sunny side up for a bit. Brown 3 hash brown patties.... place over 4 toasted slices of whole wheat 'thins'. Slide ham & egg 'omelet' over hash browns and completely cover with country gravy...... :D

    Biscuits and Gravy personally, but I've heard it called gravy and biscuits. It's a regional thing, kind of like how you pronounce the word creek. For some it's a crick with the "i" sound, for others its creek with the long "e".

    Definitely bisquits and gravy, although, the gravy really should get top billing because who doesn't love a good gravy! Dang... you're making me hungry

    Biscuits and gravy, by placing the gravy in front it denotes the item to be smothered. That said The yummy flaky item is to be covered in a yummy viscous hot liquid. The result is a meal that's taste is greater than the sum of its parts. IMO.

    You can have biscuits by themselves, but gravy alone - not so good!!! :D
    Therefore biscuits take the lead!
