Sausage gravy is a classic Southern recipe. Serve over buttermilk biscuits or grits for a hearty breakfast.
8 ounces pork sausage
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
How to Make It
Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove sausage, and drain on paper towels, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet.
Whisk flour into hot drippings until smooth; cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened. Stir in sausage, salt, and pepper.
Sprinkle flour over the cooked sausage crumbles and stir for one minute. Gradually add milk until the desired consistency is reached, then season with salt and pepper. There is no need to remove the sausage from the pan!
