Southern Sausage Gravy
Southern Sausage Gravy is the most simple and flavorful country gravy made from scratch! This mouthwatering sausage gravy is perfect with your favorite biscuits and ready no time at all!
How to make Southern Country Sausage gravy:
- The first step to making this gravy is to cook one pound of pork breakfast sausage. You can use mild, hot, maple, or any type of pork sausage that you prefer.
- Make sure to use a good pan that will brown the meat nicely. I always cook my sausage gravy in my favorite dutch oven.
- Once the sausage is browned through with no pink remaining you will add butter directly to the cooked sausage and allow it to melt.
- Next, sprinkle your flour over the sausage. You will stir the flour into the sausage for 1-2 minutes until that “raw flour” smell is gone. The flour and fat mixture is what will allow your gravy to thicken.
- Pour in the milk slowly while whisking. Your gravy will continue to thicken and bubble as your pour in the milk.
- Once the milk has all been added to the skillet, you will add your seasonings. Allow the gravy to simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened, then serve right away.
- This gravy can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days for best results.
Now, go enjoy the best damn biscuits with country sausage gravy you’ll ever have. Consider yourself warned though – they may be so good that you’ll no longer order them when dining out because all others will fail in comparison.
What to serve with Biscuits and Gravy:
- I love some kind of egg recipe to accompany my biscuits and gravy. I don’t like runny yolks running into that country sausage gravy, so I always serve them with some kind of scramble.
- If you’re not afraid of the carbs (hey, you’re eating biscuits and gravy, after all), a side of hash-browns makes a nice addition, especially if you get an extra ladle full of gravy to smother those potatoes.
