Great recipe!! Simple and straightforward :) This is the one I used to make for my hubby - he liked to have it on top of his hashbrowns and dip his toast in it. My daughter always liked to have this when I baked bread - a thick slab of warm bread with sausage gravy is one of her 'comfort foods'.

Are you people seriously busting her balls for not including a biscuit recipe? If you can't make biscuits (or buy them frozen) then this recipe is too difficult for you. Just move along. I rated it only 4 stars because you really should not drain your sausage. It seems like a waste of flavor.

I don’t use butter, just the drippings from the sausage. Add the flour and mix with the sausage, salt, pepper and a little red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick. I use 1/2 n 1/2.

Been making this for years at home, camping and especially tailgating. The only thing I do different is I use Carnation milk which makes it richer

I've made sausage gravy for many years.. I simply cook the sausage, then leave it in the pan - if after it cooks down it gives you enough pan drippings (about 1/4 C. for 4 to 6 servings), just use the pan drippings, then add in an equal amount of flour and stir to soak up the drippings - then add in the liquid, stirring constantly to blend and keep from lumping. I do not remove the sausage, just add the flour to the sausage and drippings and cook til smooth and thickened to your liking. I season with white pepper - because we like a peppery flavored gravy. A one pan, easy breakfast and always a requested meal from my family when they are home for breakfast - and especially on camping trips!

This was a solid recipe. One thing that should be noted: remove the sausage from the pan and keep the drippings to make the roux. You won't be able to whisk it properly with the sausage in there. And why pour all the drippings down the sink when you are adding butter to the pan? Just use the drippings a little butter to make the roux. Once the gravy is thick and bubbly, add the sausage back in. Also, I used Pillsbury frozen biscuits. Just pop them in the oven. Yum!

This is an excellent and easy recipe. For those worried about a biscuit recipe, buy a box of Bisquick. Simple and tastes good.

Delicious recipe--the best sausage gravy recipe I've found. Those who want a perfect biscuit recipe should try the on in Joanna's Magnolia Table cookbook. They're even better than Paula Deens.
