Biscuits and gravy is generally only sold in McDonalds branches in southern parts of the United States. It is a popular breakfast dish in the south of the United States which consists of soft white dough biscuits covered in a thick 'country' or 'white' gravy. The gravy is normally made from the drippings of cooked pork sausage, white flour and milk. It also often, but not always, contains pieces of sausage, bacon, ground beef or other meat.
