Since Father’s Day is coming up (it’s always on the third Sunday in June), I want to share with you my favorite recipe for sausage gravy. This would be a terrific breakfast for dads this weekend. Make it a bit healthier by pairing it with some fresh fruit or a homemade fruit smoothie.
And of course, it’s cheap, and easy! In fact, it’s so easy that when I found this sausage gravy recipe it changed the way I make biscuits and gravy forever.
- Start by browning a 1 lb. chub of pork sausage in a skillet on the stove. I use medium heat so that it doesn’t burn if I turn my back for a minute, but you could notch it up just a bit higher if necessary. Just don’t get it so hot that it will scorch.
- When the sausage is browned, take a look at the grease in the pan. If it’s swimming in grease, pour a little bit of it off, but not all of it! You need two or three tablespoons of the fat to make the gravy.
- Add 1/4 cup of flour directly into the skillet and stir it until it has dissolved into the sausage. You won’t be able to see it anymore.
- Next, stir in 2 cups of milk a little bit at a time. Keep on stirring from this point, and if you find that the skillet is too hot, turn it down slightly. As you stir, the milk will thicken and bubble. When it looks like gravy, you’re done. Turn the heat way down to low or remove the skillet from the heat altogether if your biscuits are done.
- Taste it and add pepper and a tiny bit of salt if needed.
Break the biscuits into two halves in a bowl and spoon the gravy on top of it. Serve!
