CHEDDAR BISCUITS AND SHRIMP AND ANDOUILLE GRAVY

Biscuits and gravy is a traditional dish and a recipe that i've just been itching to proportion! i was ready to make it and that i had an concept, what approximately a cajun fashion model with a shrimp and andouille gravy?

Vital to any properly biscuits and gravy is the biscuits, which have to be nice and light and fluffy, moist and soft! these biscuits are so smooth to make! You really pulse the butter and flour in a food processor, mix in the buttermilk and cheese and bake inside the oven till the are quality and golden brown! i am so into the addition of cheddar to biscuits like this, specifically instantly from the oven even as the cheese remains melted, ooey and gooey!
