This biscuits and sausage gravy is an old southern recipe that I've adapted. Homemade sausage gravy is a classic, hearty breakfast that takes you on a trip to the South every time it's served. —Sue Baker, Jonesboro, Arkansas
In a small skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, 3-5 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Add butter and heat until melted. Add the flour, salt and pepper; cook and stir until blended. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with biscuits.
Cornstarch and arrowroot are gluten-free thickening agents you can try. They’ll also keep your sauce clear and cloud-free. You’ll need about 1 tablespoon for every cup of liquid in the recipe. To use, mix the agent with equal parts water to create a slurry and pour it into the pot. Whisk continuously over high heat until the agent is well incorporated and the sauce starts to thicken.
Can I reheat sausage gravy?
Yes, you can reheat sausage gravy. The trick to reheating gravy is to start it at a low temperature, and then whisk vigorously once it comes to a boil to mix the ingredients back together.
Can I make this recipe without milk?
You can make this breakfast recipe without milk. Try substituting the whole milk with heavy cream or skim milk. Do keep in mind that using a milk alternative may thin out your gravy.
