OK, so I admit it…I’m a gravy girl! I have been since I was a kid. My grandma used to make bacon gravy or sausage gravy with toast for breakfast and I looked forward to it so much! Now, I make gravy a lot. Here’s my recipe for homemade sausage gravy. I usually make toast with our gravy, because that’s what I grew up eating and I like it the best, but occasionally I make biscuits, and when I do, I usually cheat and use the frozen Southern Style biscuits…they’re delicious!
1 lb. Breakfast Sausage
½ cup onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 T butter
½ cup all purpose flour
3 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
2 teaspoons coarse black pepper, to taste
Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink. Add onions and continue to cook until the onion is translucent. Add butter and stir until melted. Stir in flour and garlic, saute for about a minute. Gradually stir in milk; bring to a low boil and cook until mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Serve over split biscuits.
Makes 8 to 10 servings
