Sausage Gravy And Biscuits

Ever since I was a kid, and the first time my Grandpa made me sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast, I have been hooked! When I got older, he was able to teach me the “Grandpa way” to make the delicious sausage gravy!

What you will need…
  • 1 Roll (16oz) Pork Sausage
  • 2-3 TBS Flour
  • Milk
  • 1 Can Evaporated Milk
  • Salt and Pepper

**Note** If using whole milk, you will not need the evaporated milk. I use it because I only have 1% milk, and when trying to make gravy with the 1%, it tends to not thicken up like it should. Mix your skim,1%, or 2% with the can of evaporated milk, and it will thicken up perfect.

What to do…

First thing is to get your sausage in the pan and cooking. I use a cast iron skillet for my gravy, but you can use a non stick skillet. My Grandpa always used a cast iron, and that is the way I still do it 20 years later! While the sausage is cooking, I pour the can of evaporated milk in a large mixing bowl, then add an equal part of milk to it. I will also add some cracked black pepper into my milk mixture.

Once your sausage is done cooking, take out of the pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess grease off. Leave about 2 tablespoons of grease in your pan. Next, add flour 1 TBS at a time. Using a whisk, combine until you have have a fairly thick roux. Once it reaches the desired thickness, it will boil just a tad. You are ready to add your milk mixture to it.

Sausage Gravy

Don’t add the milk all at once. Add about 1/2 at a time. When you are adding the milk, do NOT stop whisking it. If you do, you could get lumps. Keep whisking and as your gravy thickens, you will have to add more milk to it. This is where I add more black pepper. Start adding your sausage and milk as you need to. Let simmer and keep stirring to avoid lumps. You will have to taste test your sausage gravy to determine if you need to add more salt or pepper to it.

Sausage Gravy

Sometimes, I will make homemade biscuits, or I will use Bisquick to make them. If all else fails, use canned biscuits! Most of the time it depends on how much time I have and what ingredients I have on hand.

We usually eat our sausage gravy and biscuits with eggs or hash browns, but you can have whatever you like! Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, so this usually ends up being dinner more than breakfast.
