Roll out and cut with a biscuit cutter; place biscuits on a greased baking sheet with sides just touching. Brush with butter. Bake at 450F for 10 to 12 minutes or until the tops and bottoms are light brown. GRAVY: Meanwhile, for gravy, peel and cut tomatoes into a bowl, reserving the juice.

I grew up with Tomato Gravy...Granny made it with a large can of tomatoes, smushed, and a can of water, then followed basic gravy method. I have tried the milk addition, and find it defeats the marvelous taste of my granny;s real tomato gravy!!!ENJOY
