Easy Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Easy Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

I almost wish I had never attempted to make sausage gravy. Now that I know how easy it is to make I will want it all the time… goodbye, swimsuit season. I’ll be eating my sausage gravy!

As for the biscuits… I didn’t even attempt those this time. Someday I’ll venture out to the land of homemade biscuits, but for now, biscuits in a can will have to do!


  • 1 lb sausage (I like Jimmy Dean country sausage but any kind will do!)
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • Directions

    1. Brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high until thoroughly cooked (approximately 10-12 minutes). Remove sausage from pan and reserve sausage drippings (approximately 4 Tbsp).
      Add flour to skillet. If less than 4 Tbsp of drippings were reserved from browning the sausage, adjust the amount of flour accordingly. Continually stir the drippings and flour about 2 minutes.
      Add milk to the flour and drippings mixture. Adjust the amount of milk according to the amount of flour added. Allow to cook and bubble while stirring for approximately 5 minutes. If the gravy becomes too thick, add more milk. The consistency should be fairly thin as the addition of the sausage will thicken the gravy significantly.
      Add sausage to the gravy and stir to heat thoroughly. Add more milk if the mixture becomes too thick or cook additionally if the mixture is too thin.
      Serve over biscuits.
