Quick Sausage Gravy

I thought everyone knew how to make sausage gravy until my husband, George, and I served it for a breakfast we hosted. It disappeared quickly, and every one who tried asked for the recipe.

    This is really good gravy. I took a cooking class once where we learned this recipe, only we just used 1/2 pound of sausage. For me, it needed a bit more gravy for the amount of sausage but that's the beauty of this recipe. Add more milk to stretch the recipe, and possibly more flour if you add a lot of milk. I also added pepper to suit my taste. Make your own biscuits or buy the frozen ones, depending on how much time you have. It's great for an occasional treat at breakfast.

    YUM! Very easy! Swapped out the flour for a gluten-free blend and served over our favorite GF biscuits. SO good! Tastes like what my mom always made us!

    This recipe is very easy and tasty. I used gluten free turkey sausage and rice flour instead to make the recipe gluten free for my family. I also added black pepper. I will try the recipe again next time with more milk to see the difference. Overall it was a good basic recipe.

    This is sausage with a hint of gravy. I believe you need at least 3T flour and 4 cups milk to the 1 pound of sausage.
