There’s 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 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 – whichever you use!
And stir…..and stir……and stir!
Till the gravy starts to thicken and bubbles and coats the back of the spoon!
Homemade Sausage Gravy
I’m not gonna lie – I buy the frozen Pillsbury biscuits……I mean I just made homemade gravy, like anyone cares that I didn’t make the biscuits from scratch!
But you totally can – these are my 2 favorite biscuit recipes:
Homemade Sausage Gravy
- 1 pound of sausage
- 4 Tablespoons of butter
- 4 Tablespoons of flour
- 1 teaspoon of chicken base
- 2 cups of milk
- Brown the sausage, don't drain the fat!
- Add in the butter and flour till melted and coating the sausage crumbles.
- Add in milk and chicken base, stir and cook until bubbly and thick enough to coat the back of the spoon!
- Serve over warm biscuits or stand over the stove and eat by the spoonful!!
