Today’s recipe is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner – Sausage Gravy and Biscuits!
Sausage Gravy and Biscuits – A fantastic old school southern classic that’s hearty, stick-to-your-bones good. Delicious, meaty, creamy gravy served over freshly baked biscuits. Perfect for feeding a crowd, a busy day or if you’re just in the mood for some good old comfort food.
Serve the sausage gravy over your favorite homemade biscuit, or you can save time and use store bought refrigerator biscuits.
This is a staple at my sister’s house, often served for dinner during those long Alaskan winters. Her boys never complain when this is on the menu! She always serves the sausage gravy and biscuits with a side of scrambled eggs. The photos above are from a dinner we had when I was visiting last fall, on a busy evening of football and basketball practices.
Sausage gravy and Biscuits – Quick & Easy
- 1 pound pork sausage (we use Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Sausage in the tube)
- 6 tablespoons flour (all-purpose)
- 3 cups whole milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- make your favorite homemade biscuits recipe, or use store bought (Quick and Easy Drop Biscuit Recipe)
Make your biscuits first – the sausage gravy comes together quickly. Have your biscuits ready to pop in the oven once you start the gravy. The gravy is best served over warm biscuits fresh out of the oven.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage until thoroughly cooked (approximately 7-9 minutes), continuously stirring.
Next, reduce heat to Medium, add flour, mixing into sausage. Cook the flour and sausage mixture, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes, until all the flour is absorbed by the fat.
Last, slowly add milk, stirring continuously, bringing to a boil. Allow to boil until gravy thickens. Once thickened, salt and pepper to taste and serve over freshly baked split biscuits. *If the gravy is too thick, add a small amount of milk and stir.
