Yummy Sausage Gravy

Ok…so now that you can do buttermilk biscuits you gotta have the gravy to go with it right!? Well this is my recipe and it’s a family favorite for sure. Its simple to make so let’s get started!

Your favorite sausage browned/drained and set aside.
¼ cup or half stick butter/margarine

¼ cup flour

2 cups milk

Step #1: In a medium skillet on medium heat, melt ¼ cup or half a stick of butter/margarine. Once the butter is melted, shut the heat off for now.

Step #2: Add ¼ cup flour and mix the butter and flour together. It will look like a yellow paste.

Step #3: Add 2 cups of milk to the paste and turn heat back on to medium high. Using a whisk, (yes a whisk) stir back and forth over the butter/flour so that it completely melts into the milk and there are no lumps.

Step#4: Once you have the butter/flour mixture completely incorporated into the milk, turn up heat to medium high. This is where your gravy will thicken so you don’t want to walk away and ignore it. Just keep stirring constantly until you start to see the gravy thicken. You want to turn your burner off, removing your gravy from the heat JUST BEFORE you reach the consistency that you want.

Step #5: Add your already browned / drained sausage. (I use and we love Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage in the tube) Salt and pepper your gravy to your taste and serve over your buttermilk biscuits! It’s DELISH! Feel free to double this recipe up if you want more gravy! Just remember..if your making more gravy in one big batch.. it might take a bit more time to thicken. You can even turn the temp up on high to thicken..just be careful and watch it stirring constantly so it doesn’t scorch.
