biscuits & gravy w/ eggs, country ham

bloodboy | Jul 16, 2014 01:33 PM

I recently ate breakfast with a friend and what was served was something called "biscuits & gravy" along with eggs and ham. Initially, I was skeptical because I usually never eat dairy but my friend told me to try it all together. So, I made sure to include a bite of the biscuit, sausage gravy, eggs, and ham. Oh my! It was very good! Immediately, I said that I will have to find a way to cook that as soon as I get home. That was a couple of days ago. These are the recipes that I have found:

Country ham ?

I wanted to know what you all thought about these recipes? They were the most simple recipes that I could find that seemed able to be cooked with the limited equipment that I have in the community kitchen where I live. The only dishes I have is a big aluminum stock pot, a crappy pan, a smaller pot, and an even smaller pot.

#2. Issues with the recipes I found:
2a. sausage gravy recipe -
^ I don't have anything to whisk with, can I just use a spoon or a fork? Also, can I just use a regular spoon instead of a slotted spoon?

2b. breakfast sausage recipe -
^ no issues from what I can see.

2c. scrambled eggs -
^ There is a pan in the community kitchen but it is not a nonstick pan. Can I still use that in place of the nonstick pan the recipe calls for? If not, then there is also a nonstick pot that looks similar to this but a little bigger:

I also don't have a spatula. Will that be an issue?

2d. biscuit recipe:
^ I do not have a cheese grater or a rolling pin. Alternatives?

(or I can see if I can borrow all of these missing items from the front office...)

Also, I'm nervous about making biscuits because I have never used a rolling pin before or made anything complex like this before.

2e. country ham:
^ This last question is about the country ham because I don't know how to "do" it or "make" it. What I ate looks like this:

Do I just go to a butcher and ask for 'country ham'? If so, how do I cook it? I couldn't find a recipe that's good but not too difficult.

What do you think? Thank you!
