Bob Evans Sausage Gravy & Biscuits

bobevansgravy.jpgA few years back, I was on a business trip in Ohio and ate at Bob Evans. I was surprised to see a bowl of sausage gravy on the menu. I live in California, and itís common to see biscuits with gravy on a menu. But I had never seen an entire bowl of gravy on a menu. I ordered it, of course, and ate it like an Ohioan would. I recently found Bob Evans products in the frozen food section of my supermarket. Now, I can enjoy Bob Evans sausage gravy and biscuits whenever I want. The gravy is very tasty, with lots of pieces of sausage. I thought that the gravy should have been thicker, but this is just a personal preference. I was less impressed with the biscuits, which didnít have the tenderness and flakiness that a biscuit should have. I cooked the biscuits in the microwave according to the directions in order to save time. They probably would have tasted much better if I had cooked them in the oven. With the nearest Bob Evans being over halfway across the country from me, their frozen gravy and biscuits will do until I once again have the pleasure of ordering a bowl of gravy in one of their restaurants.

Oh, you haven't lived until you've had Bob Evans Biscuits with Sausage Gravy. Bob Evans is my dad's favorite restaurant and when I really feel like being naughty with my health and wellbeing, that's what I eat. Well, that or the Country Biscuit Breakfast. Bob Evans is definitely one of the things I miss since I've moved from Ohio-other restaurants just aren't the same...

A BOWL OF GRAVY?! Comes with a coupon for 20% off an angioplasty at your local cardiac care unit. :)

But I will check these out if I see them in my area. I love biscuits and Gravy.

Judging by the way you eat, you probably won't live much longer.
Please Paypal me some of your money before you die and you ungrateful relatives get it.

I've seen the restaurants all over the Florida turnpike. I've never been curious because I think I've become allergic to fast food since I moved to CA almost eight years ago!

I was raised up in the southern Ohio area and my Dad ate biscuits and gravy for most of his life. He died not of plugged up arteries but from worrying. Just keep the gravy coming (with the usual modest restraint) and quit watching the national newscasters!

I'm a vegetarian, so no bowl of gravy for me, but we have Bob Evans near us. I like their Farmer's Breakfast. It's a plate of pancakes, and then a seperate plate with eggs and home fries on it, and I get toast with mine. I usually eat the eggs and potatoes at the restaurant and then I keep the pancakes for breakfast the next day. (It's just too much food for me, and pancakes keep better than eggs.) Bob Evans is really tasty. :D

A Bowl of Gravy? how do you eat that? I grew up on homemade cream gravy, but we never ate it by the bowl. It was always a spoonful on top of eggs, or on top of mashed potatoes, not a bowlful. yuck.

I love Bob Evans Sausage gravy & biscuits. The flavor is very original and tasty. I came across this a few years ago in the frozen food dept and was supprised on how good it was. I would reccomment this to everyone. My only problem is that they have discontinued this item in our grocery stores in florida and I'm not happy about that. This was better than any restaurant could make. I probably will try the recipe that I found on Bob Evans website but I really don't like the mess of making it myself. It was so convenient just to take a box out of the freezer and make it. Any suggestions on to order this product would be greatly appreciated.
