Grandpa Parrish’s Sausage Gravy

A couple of weeks ago we posted a recipe for Easy Homemade Biscuit. After making them, we realized, what could we do with all these tasty biscuits? Make sausage gravy of course.

Making sausage gravy is super simple, all you really need is sausage, milk, and flour. We of course added a couple of other things to really give the gravy a little bit more depth of flavor.

Sausage Gravy and Biscuits is a super hardy meal, and will keep you going for hours. It’s a not a light meal and should only be made once in awhile…. 😉

Sausage Gravy

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound of breakfast sausage (spicy or mild)
  • 1/4 cup of AP flour
  • 1.5 to 2 cups milk (2%)
  • 1 teaspoon season salt
  • 3 hefty dashes of cayenne pepper
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper

Step 1: 

Using your fingers, break the sausage into bite sized pieces. Using a cast iron skillet, brown the sausage over a medium-high heat until the sausage is no longer pink.

Step 2: 

Lower the heat to medium-low, slowly sprinkle about half the flour mixture on the sausage and allow it to absorb, then add a little bit more. Stir and allow to cook for another minute (or two).

Step 3: 

Over low heat, slowly pour in the milk and stir constantly until combined.

Step 4

Cook the gravy over medium-low heat, stir constantly until it thickens. At this point stir in the season salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. It’s okay if it gets too thick, just add a splash of milk or water.

Step 5: 

Taste the gravy and adjust the seasoning to your liking. Serve the gravy with warm biscuits and enjoy!
