  • 1 pound bulk country sausage

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 ½ cups milk, or more as needed

  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 6 hot biscuits, split


  1. Heat sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, crumbling with a spoon and stirring often, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Add butter to skillet and melt. Sprinkle flour evenly over skillet and stir for 1 minute. Whisk in 2 1/2 cups milk and scrape up any bits off the bottom of the skillet. Bring mixture to a simmer.

  3. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 10 minutes. If mixture becomes too thick, thin slightly by adding more milk or water. Season with hot sauce, pepper, and salt; cook for 1 more minute.

  4. Serve immediately over hot biscuits.

For an added spicy kick, feel free to substitute hot country sausage for regular.
