Homemade Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits

My favorite food for breakfast on the weekends is grandma’s homemade biscuits and gravy. I know this meal is probably one of the unhealthiest meals that you can eat. Sometimes you just have to go out on a limb and treat your taste buds to something that you crave and for me this is one of my comfort foods.

I have tried so many variations of biscuits and gravy but I still come back to this one that I am going to share with you. Whenever we have family gatherings of all our kids, they cannot wait for me to make up a batch of homemade biscuits and a pot of homemade sausage gravy.

For my family what I like to do is make the sausage gravy the night before. This brings all the flavors together when the gravy sits overnight. The morning of breakfast I will bake the biscuits. Click here for the biscuit recipe.

Ingredients for sausage gravy

  • 16 oz. sausage, if you want a little kick to your gravy add 8 oz. of hot sausage
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ cups of flour
  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1 tsp of ground sage
  • ¼ tsp of onion powder
  • ¼ tsp of ground pepper
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Brown the sausage in a frying pan on medium heat and drain off the grease.
  • Melt the butter after you drain the grease in the same pan with the sausage.
  • Add flour to the sausage and butter and stir together and let cook for two to three minutes.
  • Pour in milk over the sausage in the frying pan and let sit for a few minutes.  Then add the sage, onion, pepper and salt. Bring this mixture to a boil and then turn to low heat.
  • Continue to cook on low for another ten minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Transfer the sausage gravy to a container and cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  • In the morning after the biscuits are about done baking bring out the sausage gravy and heat on low. Only add a little cold milk if the gravy is to thick.
  • Enjoy

I have always had an enthusiasm for homesteading and for living off the grid even though I live in a combination of country and urban setting. Living in Central Florida north of the big cities we have the best of both worlds, country and the conveniences that a person would have living in a large urban city. I personally have had a concern about our weakening economy and how it effects each and every-one of us. The second thing that I have a concern about is how most of the world view’s our country and what may happen one day here in the United States. My Life Experiences I was raised by parents that grew up during the great depression, they passed onto me what life was like and how people had to live during this time period. My family were farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders, they were raised this way and they passed onto me these qualities. I also have family members that live totally off the grid. They live in the North Woods of Minnesota which is a great location for living off the grid. The Southern Homesteader is a passion of mine, I love passing on and sharing information about cooking, news, being self-sufficient, living off the grid, canning, food storage, budgeting, and much more. Since this blog is a passion of mine I am constantly adding and tweaking this site to be a better resource for you. More About Me I grew up in Northern Illinois farm fields. After spending most of my life in large corporate business I decided to relocate to a small town on the nature coast of Central Florida. This is where I met my wife and between us we have 4 wonderful daughters. We have a small homestead where we raise our chicken and live freely. We also have a bug-out place in the mountains of North Carolina that we call our retreat. We spend time there getting things prepared for all our family members when SHTF. I am blessed with a wonderful family and the knowledge that God has given me so I can pass this along to you the readers. I will never tell what you what to do or what to purchase, I just am offering my opinion. I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you. Always feel free to contact me and drop me a note. I will do my best to respond to your emails in a timely manner. Thank you again, Tom Johnson
