Homemade Sausage Gravy
Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 15 minutes Serves: 4-6
- 1 pound breakfast sausage
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Biscuits for serving (Pillsbury Grands FROZEN biscuits or your preferred biscuits)
1. Cook the Sausage:
- In a large pan or skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium heat until it’s browned and crumbled. Do not drain the grease.
2. Add Flour:
- Sprinkle the 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour evenly over the cooked sausage.
- Stir well until the flour is fully incorporated and you cannot see any white flour.
3. Pour in Milk:
- Gradually pour in the 2 cups of milk while stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
- Keep stirring until the mixture is well combined and begins to thicken.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. Be sure to taste the gravy and adjust the seasoning as needed.
5. Simmer and Thicken:
- Continue cooking the gravy over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it comes to a gentle boil with bubbles appearing.
- Once it begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and allow the gravy to simmer. It will continue to thicken as it simmers. This may take around 5-10 minutes.
6. Serve with Biscuits:
- While the gravy simmers, prepare your biscuits according to the package instructions. If you’re using frozen biscuits, bake them as directed.
7. Plate and Enjoy:
- To serve, split the biscuits in half and ladle the hot sausage gravy over the top.
