Sausage Gravy and Biscuits @bigbearswife

YAY, Sausage Gravy and Biscuits! One of the few things that can get me out of the bed in like 5 seconds on the weekends. My grandpa use to make Sausage Gravy and Biscuits all the time when I was younger. My brother use to say "Papa, you need to bottle that Sausage Gravy up and sell it!" He never did bottle it up and sell it but we did get to enjoy almost every time we went up to Nana and Papa's to spend the night. I wish I had been into collecting recipes when he was around, because his recipe for Sausage Gravy and Biscuits would have been an amazing one to get him to put on paper.

When BigBear and I got married, we'd visit home on the weekends once in a while and normally made a stop at his parent's house for breakfast. The first time my father in law made Sausage Gravy and Biscuits I was in heaven. It took me straight back to my grandpa's kitchen. From that point on, anytime we had plans to head to their house for breakfast, before BigBear could even ask, his dad would say, "....and yes, Sausage Gravy and Biscuits for Angie." :)

After a little while of practicing, BigBear has mastered Sausage Gravy and Biscuits. Well at least I think he has! When I told him that he finally had gotten it to be just like his dad's, he smiled and knew he had it perfect. :) Sausage Gravy and Biscuits is probably my #1 comfort food when it comes to breakfast. But it is a special treat, personally I would eat it everyday.......... but since hubby makes it, I only get it on the weekends and then, it's still like random. I should make it a mandatory Sunday morning breakfast! haha

Big Bear says "Pour this gravy over biscuits for the best breakfast at home you can ask for"

(Printable Recipe Here)

Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

  • 1-2 pounds ground sausage
  • 1.5 teaspoons butter
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4-5 cooked biscuits 

Heat a large skillet on high. Once skillet is hot, place the sausage in the pan and cook until done. 
While cooking. use a large metal spatula to press down on the sausage to help get some of the extra fat out of the meat. 
Right before the sausage is ready place three pats of butter about 1/2 a teaspoon or so each into the skillet with the sausage. 
Place 3 cups of whole milk into the microwave for about two minutes. (this makes sure that the milk won't curdle when added to the sausage)
Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of flour over sausage. Add warm milk, 1 cup at a time, stirring after each cup of milk is added.  
Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. 
Once you reduce the heat if the gravy is not as thick as you want you can add 1/2 teaspoon of flour at a time stirring after each one is added. 
Salt and pepper to taste and let simmer for about 10-12 minutes.  
Pour over biscuits and serve hot.  
Yield: 4 -6 servings of Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
