Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Another of my personal favorites, biscuits and gravy are good anytime time of day, whether it be a meal or a large snack. Many people don't make this as they believe it to be difficult to make a quality sausage gravy.  As can be seen here, if you're willing to take the time to prepare it properly, it is fairly easy to make.


Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

 
- 1 dozen of your favorite biscuits
- 1 lb fatty pork sausage, this is good with either spicy or mild sausage
- 4-6 Tbsp all purpose flour
- 3-4 cups milk
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1-2 tsp sage
 
In a large, deep skillet, cook the sausage until fully cooked. Add the flour one Tbsp at a time, making sure to brown each Tbsp before adding the next to avoid having a starchy flavor/feel to the gravy. Slowly add the milk, it will look very soupy once the milk has been added. Add the cayenne and sage and simmer, stirring constantly, until gravy thickens to desired consistency. Serve hot over, preferably fresh, biscuits.
 
Enjoy!
