Sausage Gravy


Grandma's own sausage gravy recipe! Works with bacon, too. Serve hot over freshly baked biscuits.

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 3 cups milk


  1. Heat a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until crumbly and browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove sausage to a paper towel-lined plate to drain; set aside.

  2. Pour off most of the grease from the skillet, leaving 2 to 3 tablespoons. Stir flour into grease in the skillet over medium-low heat. Whisk vigorously until roux forms, scraping the bottom of the skillet. Reduce heat to low and let roux cook for at least 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Grandma always "burned" hers a little on purpose.

  3. Stream milk into roux, whisking constantly. After adding about 2 1/2 cups, increase heat to medium and continue cooking, whisking constantly. Bring gravy to a boil and cook to desired thickness. Add some of the sausage to gravy if desired.


You can adjust the milk to the thickness you like.
