I love sausage gravy and this recipe was a big hit at our house. I didn't add the extra margarine figuring there was plenty from the sausage. I also used Sage sausage giving a little more flavor. I tried once with Maple sausage and didn't like the taste. Other than decreasing the fat I didn't really change anything. This is super easy. I did cut the recipe in half though since I was only cooking for 2. I had plenty and there was nothing left over. Read More

This is a good recipe but it is much better and creamier if you used Evaporated milk instead of regular milk. I have made southern sausage and bacon gravy my entire life and have never added butter to it. The sausage grease gives you enough liquid for your flour. Cook the flour for at least 3 minutes to get a little color to it and get rid of the flour taste and then add the milk, salt and pepper. Read More

My fiance's family is originally from Mississippi, and they know how to make biscuits and gravy. So when I tried this recipe out, I wanted to make sure it would measure up. IT DID. He loves it! Read More

YUMMY!! My husband asked if we could have this for breakfast every morning. I said no of course but we had enough for leftovers the following morning and it reheated very well. I will definately make this again. Read More

My oh My... Country biscuits and gravy! My favorite alternative breakfast. I only used 1/2 pound of sausage left everything else the same then fixed some fried 'taters with onions. I left the breakfast table fuller than a hound dog at a red neck BBQ! Read More

FANTASTIC! I was born raised and still live in MS and I know what a good sausage gravy tastes like. THIS IS IT! Changes I made: bacon grease instead of margarine only 3 cups of milk and a little more than the required flour as mine didn't seem pasty with the amount as stated. The gravy thickened up very well - we like ours thick! Overall the meal was very filling and probably very fattening but it was great for a once in a while dinner or breakfast. Read More

Very yummie. I'm from Tenn. so sausage and gravy are popular when i visit. This was my first attempt to make it with this recipe and it was wonderful. I used sausage patties then cut them up as my daughter doesn't care for meat much so those who wanted it could have it and those who didn't didn't. And I agree with the review it does reheat very well. Read More

This was my first attempt every at sausage gravy and I've really only made gravy a few times before this. EASY though and delish! My husband said we will NEVER buy sausage gravy in a can again and I totally agree. The second time we made it we used hot sausage and made it over biscuits with omelets for breakfast - too die for! Thanks for sharing! Read More
