Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Yield: Serves 4

Southern style sausage gravy and biscuits are the perfect meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Serve with buttermilk biscuits and a side of peas. Find the biscuit recipe here!


1 lb. ground sausage
1/2 cup Butter or Margarine
1/2 cup AP flour
2 cups milk (approximate)
Salt to taste
1 T. Cracked Black Pepper
1 batch Buttermilk Biscuits - find the recipe here 


-Prepare biscuits according to recipe here

-Crumble sausage and fry according to package directions in fry pan.

-Drain grease from sausage when you are finished cooking. Set aside.

-In a medium sauce pan, melt butter/margarine on medium heat.

-Once butter/margarine is melted, add flour a little at a time, stirring into butter/margarine as it thickens, creating a roux.
***You may require more or less flour to get the desired consistency. (Follow photos)

-When you reach a thicker consistency, began adding milk a little at a time, stirring each amount completely into the roux before adding more. ***This helps avoid lumps!

-Continue slowly adding milk while stirring constantly, until your reach the desired thickness of gravy.

-Add Salt and pepper when you reach desired consistency.
-Stir well.
This may seem like a lot of pepper, and it is, but what is southern gravy with out lots of cracked pepper? You can adjust it to suit your own tastes!

-Add the sausage to this gravy, and serve over fresh biscuits. Here is that link for the biscuit recipe again.

Serve with a side of peas or add them to the gravy.
