Sausage gravy and biscuits is one of those comfort foods. The kind that you get at your favorite diner when you are surrounded by your family. The kind of breakfast that starts you whole day off warm and cozy.
If you are like me you probably never thought of making this comfort food at home before.
It is a gravy and gravy making is hard, right? Well, not so much.
Try this little recipe and impress your family with your talent in the kitchen!
It doesn't take very long at all. I'm a big fan of the recipes that leave your entire house smelling delicious. The kind of recipes that drag your family members into the kitchen and have them looking to see how soon whatever you are making will be in their stomachs.
Trust me, people.
This one is good.
Sausage Gravy and Biscuits:
1 lb. sausage
2 Tbsp. diced onion
6 Tbsp. flour
Worcestershire sauce to taste
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 qt. milk
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
hot sauce to taste
can of biscuits or your favorite homemade recipe
First, brown your sausage. I used Jimmy Dean regular sausage. I throw the onion it while I brown the meat, too. Then drain and keep 2 Tbsp. drippings.
Next, stir in your milk and flour. Let it thicken over medium-high heat and stir constantly. My recipe says "6 minutes", but it usually takes me 12-15 to thicken it to the consistency I like my sausage gravy at. Just keep an eye on it, stir often, and use your judgement. Sometimes I even throw in a little more flour to help it thicken. We also use skim milk instead of 2% or whole milk so it doesn't thicken as easily.
When it thickens to your desired consistency, toss in your seasonings.
While you wait for your gravy to finish up. Toss in some biscuits into the oven.
When they come out of the oven golden brown and delicious looking, you'll be dying to eat breakfast.
Pour your gravy over your hot, fresh biscuits and call in your family to enjoy.
Alec is waiting eagerly at the table by this point, so there is no need to call him in.
