Sausage Gravy

I’m not going to post a recipe for buttermilk biscuits and skip posting one for sausage gravy.  I’m not a monster.  I may be a “momster” but I’m not a monster.

I’m going to show you how to make my delicious sausage gravy in just a few easy steps.  It’s a foolproof recipe meaning it’s pretty hard to mess up.. unless you add too much salt.  Don’t add too much salt.

Annnd nobody’s perfect.  I’m GUILTY of over-salting in the past!  But still.  Don’t do it.

Start with 1 lb. of premium pork sausage.

Brown it in a LARGE skillet or cast-iron pan.  Make sure to salt and pepper the raw meat.

Next add a 1/4 teaspoon of Nutmeg and a 1/4 teaspoon of Sage.

Then, a couple healthy dashes of cayenne pepper.

Drum roll please!  Add a couple tablespoons of butter.  If you don’t have butter you can use margarine too.

Now whisk 1/4 cup of flour into 2 cups of milk.

Slowly whisk the milk into the sausage over medium-high heat.

Get it bubbling.

Repeat!  Whisk ANOTHER 1/4 cup of flour into 2 cups of milk.

Pour into the pan and get it bubbling again.  Once the gravy is bubbling, it’s done.  Salt and pepper to taste.

If you want thicker gravy, whisk a few tablespoons of flour into a 1/4 cup of milk and add it to the pan.  If you want thinner gravy just add more milk.

Jason took leftovers for lunch the next day.  This feeds a small crowd so I usually freeze half.
