Farewell Jimmy Dean
As you may already know country music singer and founder of breakfast's favorite sausage company, Jimmy Dean, 81, passed away in his Virgina home Saturday while eating dinner and watching T.V.

Reports are not yet in as to exactly what he was eating, but we are going to assume it had sausage in it.

In honor of Jimmy Dean, whip up a batch of southern goodness with this recipe for Biscuits and Sausage Gravy.

"Breakfast never sounded so good."
