Simple Southern Sausage Gravy

I grew up like many people have with sausage gravy and biscuits on the table most weekend breakfast times. Now a days it seems to be a staple on most menus – even fast food versions. But nothing beats fresh, homemade sausage gravy poured over biscuits on a cool morning. Here’s a recipe you can use in the busiest of houses any time you have the hankering for such a hearty breakfast. It’s so easy, with the simplest of ingredients, that you probably have on hand. You can use your own homemade biscuit recipe, or just find a brand at the store that you love – the gravy is so good they won’t notice the difference!

Simple Southern Sausage Gravy

Serving Size:
4 lg
15 min


  • 1 lb sausage (I use a sage seasoned saussage for more flavor, but use your favorite)
  • 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 1/2 C milk (whole)
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt (optional)
  • salt/pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, brown sausage over medium/medium high heat until cooked through. Do NOT drain.
  2. Add butter (and seasoning salt if using) to skillet with sausage and melt.
  3. Sprinkle in flour, stir to mix, and cook the flour until taste is gone. Roughly 2 minutes.
  4. Add milk slowly, in stages. Stir thoroughly after each addition to completely combine. (Adding milk all at one, or too quickly, can cause lumps.)
  5. Continue stirring and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until thickens.
  6. Add salt/pepper to taste while simmering.
