Notes

Make ahead Instructions:
You can make the gravy ahead of time and store it in a container in the fridge for 2-3 days, depending on the freshness of your ingredients.
Rewarm on the stove, adding a splash of half and half or milk to thin it, if needed, and additional seasonings, to taste. 
Freezing instructions:
I'd suggest making the recipe with whole milk, if you want to freeze it. (Half and half will have a slightly different texture upon reheating from frozen, but will still taste good). Thaw overnight in the fridge.
Rewarm on the stove, adding a splash of half and half or milk to thin it, if needed, and additional seasonings, to taste. 
The biscuits can be made ahead and stored in the freezer for 3-5 months.
