Sausage Gravy


Sausage Gravy is so delicious when it is homemade. There are two Easy Buttermilk Drop Biscuits under that Sausage Gravy in the picture above making this a fabulous tasting breakfast or a meal. Sausage gravy doesn’t take long to make and you can make it with regular breakfast sausage, Italian sausage or your favorite sausage.

This is the second recipe that I am sharing from a cooking class that I attended recently. We moved along quickly so I wasn’t able to take my time with the pictures, I just took them as quickly as I could to show you the steps. Chef Christal Jakopak was our instructor.



In a large pot add the sausage

over medium heat.



Break up the sausage with a large spoon.



Brown the sausage.



Sprinkle the flour over the

sausage and mix thoroughly.



Add a little milk.



Stir and cook until thick then add a

little more milk and stir until thick.

Keep repeating until you get the

consistency that you want.



Stirring constantly, bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium low and

simmer for another 2 – 5 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.



Serve hot over biscuits.

  1. Here in Singapore, I’ve always grown up with the idea that sausage sits in a casing, until some two decades ago, I saw you could remove all the meat and toss out the casing, It gets fun that way. I love sausage in pasta … gravy is new!

    • How fascinating! It’s nice to buy the sausage in the casing that way you can use it either way. I’m glad I am not the only one that thinks it’s fun to remove the casing…lol

  2. Yum yum yum! This looks SO good and easy. I love it! Matter of fact – I’ve just printed it off. Thanks Diane! As I always say, you never cease to make me drool and crave something I wasn’t even thinking of before. 😛

    I’m in total agreement with you – homemade sausage gravy is hard to beat! 🤤
