❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Well.. honestly what’s not to love.. it’s sausage gravy! When it comes to putting something on a biscuit, this gravy goes to the top of the list. Plus we love sausage and this is only 4 ingredients and takes no time to make. It reheats well too and can be made a day in advance.

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Pork Breakfast Sausage
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Milk
  • Salt & Pepper

SWAPS

We use whole milk, but you can use 2% milk or even evaporated milk. You can also make this recipe with bacon and using bacon drippings if you want to try bacon gravy.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This recipe is pretty easy to make however sometimes people do have issues with getting the right consistency. You want to make sure you cook it until it is thick.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Cook sausage and reserving drippings. Add drippings to frying pan along with flour and mix well with spoon. Cook this until well blended and begins to boil in pan. (this is making a roux and some people don’t remove the sausage they leave it in the skillet)

Step 2
Add milk all at once and cook until boils. Boil for about five minutes until reaches thickness desired. Watch closely because gravy will boil over on stove if you don’t continue stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste. Crumble sausage into gravy.

⭐TIP

You want the gravy to be thick and it will be thin when you first add the milk to the skillet. Keep cooking and stirring until it thickens. The milk cooks out of the mixture it thickens so give it time.
