Theres nothing as good as Homemade Sausage Gravy and its really simple to make! A great weekend breakfast and even an easy weeknight supper!
I LOVE creamy sausage gravy and biscuits! Throw a couple of over easy eggs on top and I don’t care what time of the day it is – if it’s in front of me it’s gone!
We have the cutest little pan for eggs – it makes them perfectly round and makes me feel all professional and shit when I make them!
Sausage Gravy is super simple to make, if I can you can!
I love to use my cast iron skillet, but any skillet big enough to hold a pound of sausage and 2 cups of milk will work perfectly!
I’ll be honest, I thought everyone made homemade gravy……..and figured everyone had their own method!
This is mine – I even took step by step pictures because – well I just did!
Fry up a pound of your favorite breakfast sausage! Now don’t get all excited and drain the fat off – fat is flavor people! We want that fat in there to help flavor that gravy!
A good gravy is a 2:2:1 ratio – 2 butter, 2 flour, 1 liquid!
We are going to use 2 cups of milk, so drop in 4 Tablespoons of butter and 4 Tablespoons of flour! Melt that butter and flour and coat that sausage!
Now add your 2 cups of milk and a teaspoon of chicken base or bullion – which ever you use!
And stir…..and stir……and stir!
Till the gravy starts to thicken and bubbles and coats the back of the spoon!
