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