I halved the recipe, used chicken base granules for the salt as I was serving with fried chicken, the flavour was spot on for us. Thanks! Read More

I created an account on Allrecipes just so I could give this five stars. Woke up with a craving for biscuits and gravy but didn’t have sausage. You can make this with all the items you already have! Followed it exactly and it was just what I needed in my life. Read More

Made as written and without a hiccup. I've struggled with gravy in the past but has no issues whatsoever with this one. Not a huge sage fan but this was the perfect amount for us and it added a nice flavor. If you really love sage I recommended adding more. With that being said we love our white gravy peppery so I added more to suit our taste. For not having sausage in it this was really good! Thanks for sharing! Read More

a bit heavy on the sage for mine and my family's liking. We liked it better with half the amount called for. Read More

So incredibly good! I ground up some vegetarian breakfast sausage patties and added it to the finished gravy. My house full of boys/men loved it on my scratch made biscuits! Read More

Delicious. I love the fact that it doesn't have breakfast sausage in it. It has big bold pepper flavor. Read More
