6 servings


  • 1 pound breakfast pork sausage

  • 5 slices bacon

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups half-and-half, or more as needed

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground paprika


  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Leave grease in the skillet.

  2. Heat the same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot grease until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Do not drain off excess fat.

  3. Crumble the bacon and add it back to the sausage, along with the onion and garlic. Saute over medium heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add dried parsley. Add flour and stir until all the flour is incorporated with the fat. Slowly add 2 cups half-and-half to the mixture. Stir in pepper, salt, and paprika. Cook over medium heat until thick. If the sauce it too thick, add more half-and-half.
