I love biscuits and gravy with some Owens sausage and eggs but wouldn't recommend it every day. I usually hit my fat macros with breakfast.
I try to avoid sweets because they are calorie dense but not filling at allOlympus Labs DemigodPM me with any Olympus Labs questionsUse Code WOODY30 for 30% off your order at www.Olympus-Labs.com

There's nothing wrong with biscuits/gravy as long as it fits your daily macro-nutrient intake. Personally, I choose to limit my "sweets" intake (though, many people interpret the term "sweets" differently) as it triggers my facial/back acne. For example, I usually have 2-3 sweets a week.. such as ice-cream after training legs, or a nice dessert if I go out to dinner with friends/family.
In regards to calculating your daily macro-nutrient (macros) intake, there are several calculators available on the web for this. A simple Google search should suffice. Personally, I use the IIFYM TDEE calculator, as it seems to be fairly accurate. Depending on your body type, your macros will vary. You should experiment and see what works best for you. I am a mesomorph and try to hit 40/35/25 (protein, carbs, fats) while bulking.
I don't have a strict day-to-day diet plan, as I believe in flexible dieting, so I can't help you there. Hopefully someone else here can shoot one your way. Oh, and download a calorie counter app on your phone (such as MyFitnessPal) if you want to track calories.

I would take out biscuits and gravy. Just because your "bulking" doesn't mean you eat whatever. Your "bulk" should almost be the same foods as your diet just an increase in calories. This way when you diet it isn't torture. You can also incorporate refeed days or a cheat meal once or twice a week.

The amount of fat and carbs in biscuits and gravy would make it seem almost impossible it could fit a healthy meal or one that is suitable when it comes to macro consumption. Unless you have a metabolism like Juan Diesel Morel then I doubt you could eat that and get away with it.

If you are practicing reduced meal frequency (think 1 meal per day) you could make it fit. Add a multi and a few greens. GTG

I would personally limit them, or cut them out completely to be honest. Even when bulking, it's always best to stick to clean foods which would make it so much easier come the time for you to cut or lean out.

What are the macro numbers for your biscuits and gravy? Sounds like garbage to me, on the same level as french fries and nachos. At least get some protein in meal.
You are doomed if you can't stop eating biscuits and gravy.
