"I don't understand why you drain the sausage grease only to add butter. It seems to defeat the purpose of the gravy having the rich sausage flavor being infused instead of the lack or blandness some reviewers have noted in using butter or margarine. The rendered sausage fat does just fine in making the gravy and has been the technique used for 10 generations here. Just use the recommended amount of sausage fat to brown the flour (self-rising flour makes a quicker thickening gravy) to make the gravy."

"This is a classic recipe. I brown the sausage, drain, keep aside. Do the roux, season and add the sausge back to the roux.. My roux is a two, two, two method. Equal parts of butter, flour, milk. Brown the butter/flour before adding cold milk. This can be made the night before and simply heat in the morning while the biscuits are in the oven. Wonderful!"

"I love the fact this recipe only makes two servings! Just enough for my husband and me. I substituted shortening for the butter, but it was still delicious!"
