Southern Sausage Gravy

This gravy is good on biscuits, mashed potatoes, chicken, or just straight from a spoon. You only need a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes for some great homemade gravy.  We had it over some biscuits this morning, and the rest topped off our mashed potatoes and chicken tenders at dinner.


1/2 lb breakfast sausage, crumbled
2 T butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 cups milk
kosher salt
black pepper

In a large skillet over medium high heat, crumble up the breakfast sausage.  I use a potato masher to break the sausage up into smaller pieces.  Cook until no longer pink.  Add the butter and once it is melted, stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes.  Add the milk and bring to a boil.  Lower heat and cook until thickened, stirring occasionally.  Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.  If it gets too thick, add some more milk.  Enjoy!


  1. I am such a sucker for gravy. Mine is pretty darn close to yours! I just love this stuff!! Looks so good!

  2. Believe it or not I have never made this. Maybe because I can get it in any restaurant that we go for breakfast even at the gas station on the corner. I really think it's because the amount that it makes and I know I would eat way too much and have leftovers. :) Is that such a bad thing? I should try it thanks for the recipe!

    1. I make a similar gravy made with Jimmy Dean bulk Sausage. I exchange the milk by using low fat evaporated milk. I really don't use a recipe.

    I love this. My grandma makes something very similar and it's outstanding.
