Learn how to make sausage gravy!
This is super easy process and once you’ve tasted this delicious recipe, you’ll never want to go back to restaurant sausage gravy again! (Quick tip: The principles of this are how you make any gravy. Combine a fat and flour to make a roux, then add desired liquid, stir and heat until it begins to thicken, and serve.)
There are a few ways to make sausage gravy:
- You can use the grease from the sausage as the base for your gravy.
- You can use bacon grease as the base and just crumble in some sausage.
- My preferred method is to use butter as a base for my sausage gravy, and then I crumble up some broken pieces of sausage.
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1/4 cup flour
- 2 cups milk (more if needed)
- sausage (as much as desired)
- Salt, pepper, and seasonings to taste (I like to add cayenne pepper.)
- Melt butter in skillet.
- Stir in flour to make a roux. Add in broken pieces of sausage and stir until all well combined.
- Pour in milk, stir slowly over medium heat until gravy begins to thicken.
- Add salt and pepper to taste, and if desired, sprinkle in some cayenne pepper.
- When gravy is ready to serve, turn off burner. If you want to serve more and it is starting to thicken up, just add a little bit more milk and stir in well.
- Ladle gravy over split biscuits and serve hot.
