Hmmmmm well. I think that gravy is a very personal dish. And whether someone likes it or not probably is tied to the region in which they live. For me this recipe needs improvement. I cut the sausage into slices and set aside reserving two patties to be crumbled and placed back in the gravy at the end. With the sausage being salty already I think that the salt in the recipe is too much. I had to use more black pepper for our tastes than listed here and we don't care for the green onions. You have to play with flour and milk amounts so I think that that is understood by most gravy cooks. Also speed of your wrist (stirring) and heat play a factor. By the way you can sub ham for the sausage and call it red-eye gravy.
I grew up on this but had forgotten about it until I saw your recipe Lloyd. I cooked the onion a little before adding the flour. The whole key to making this is to be patient with the flour and let it brown. If the flour isn't brown it won't be sawmill gravy! When the gravy was thickened to my liking I just added the crumbled sausage to it spooned it over homemade biscuits and topped each biscuit with a fried egg. Thanks for the memories! My Dad was a cook in the army and he made this all the time.
Biscuits and sausage gravy are favorites but when I tried this great sounding recipe it was very salty. I noticed there is over 50% of your day's sodium in just a single serving of this recipe. Seasoned sausage has plenty of salt in it I would suggest adding a couple pinches of cracked pepper and a pinch of either thyme or sage. I also let the flour gently brown a bit more than called for here and used about twice as much gravy to sausage-it was wonderful. Thanks!
Simple! That's how a breakfast gravy should be! I was a bad boy and used all of the cooked off fat to make a huge batch of gravy which did work out very well because I am a dyed- deep biscuits and gravy fan. The smoothness of this gravy made eating a pleasure- even without "corn mill". Thank you LLoyd!
This is close to what my grandmother made and it did bring back memories of the good ole days. It really isn't that much different than other gravy recipes. The biggest difference is the browning of the flour. For breakfast Grandma would make this six days a week and on Sunday she would make white gravy. Thanks for the memories Lloyd.
