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. 


So good.




Serve with biscuits!


We had this with biscuits and fried eggs.


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


100% comfort food!
