Homemade Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits

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

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.
