Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Biscuits and sausage gravy is a classic comfort food dish that originated in the southern United States.

The dish consists of soft, fluffy homemade biscuits smothered with a rich and creamy white gravy made with sausage and heavy cream.

This hearty dish is often served for breakfast or brunch and is sure to please all appetite sizes.

Old Fashioned Sausage Gravy

Old-fashioned sausage gravy starts with the sausage. Add 1 pound of bulk pork sausage to a frying pan over medium-high heat. Break apart the sausage pieces with a spoon or spatula as it cooks.

Once the sausage has browned, drain off the fat. Keeping the pan on heat, add 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour to the sausage and whisk until blended.

Cook the flour-sausage mixture for 2-3 minutes before adding 3 cups of milk. Whisk to blend the gravy before bringing it to a simmer.

Reduce the heat to low and cook the gravy until it thickens, stirring occasionally to prevent the bottom from burning. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over hot buttermilk biscuits.
