Another excellent breakfast side is always bacon.  If you have never tried to prepare it in your oven, you are missing the best way possible to fix bacon.  It is so easy to cook in your oven.  If you have not tried oven-fried bacon, see full details here.

What is Sausage Gravy?

Sausage gravy is a traditional Southern breakfast dish in the United States.  After ground pork sausage is ready,  a roux is formed by browning flour in the fat or sausage drippings.  Milk is whisked in with the flour to make the gravy.  Season with salt and pepper or my favorite which is Seasoned Salt and pepper.

STEP 1: Sausage Gravy Served Over Biscuits

Serve your sausage gravy over biscuits.  You can find my homemade biscuits here.  If you are in a hurry, use your favorite frozen or can biscuits.

While The Biscuits Are In The Oven

STEP 2: Cook Ground Sausage

  • Crumble sausage into large skillet.  Cook over medium-high heat until browned and no longer pink, stirring frequently.

SAUSAGE TIPS

  • Taste your gravy before adding salt.  Some sausage can be salty.
  • My favorite sausage to use in this gravy is Maple Sausage.  It adds a hint of sweetness.
  • If you enjoy Hot or Spicy foods, try using a hot sausage.  It adds a lot of flavor to this gravy.

STEP 3: Add Flour

  • Leave the cooked sausage in the skillet and whisk in the flour.  Completely cover all the sausage with the flour.  The sausage and sausage drippings should completely absorb all the flour.

TIP

For years, I removed the cooked sausage from the frying pan before adding my flour to my sausage drippings.  Removing the sausage from the skillet is not necessary.  Just coat the sausage well with the flour before adding the milk.

STEP 4: Add Milk

  • Slowly whisk in the milk.

STEP 5: Season Sausage Gravy

  • Season the gravy with seasoned salt and pepper.  You could also use salt and pepper.  To add lots of flavors, try using Maple Sausage or even a Hot Sausage.

STEP 6: Gravy Will Thicken As It Cools

  • Cook until mixture thickens, stirring constantly.

TIPS:

  • Gravy will thicken as it cools.  If you reheat it the next day or you like thin gravy,  add a splash more milk.

STEP 7: Serve You, Sausage Gravy,

  • Split the biscuits in half.  Top with sausage gravy.
  • You could also serve Gravy over Southern Grits.  See my extremely flavorful grits here.
